A brief overview of the smartphone market highlights the tendency of manufacturers to release phones with a screen diagonal of over 5 inches. If at first a 4″ – 4.3″ display seemed large enough for any type of activity, there is currently no major manufacturer to ignore the phone market of large screens. Even though they are often criticized for their large size and difficulty to use with one hand, these phones have caught on, which is why most top smartphones have such diagonals.
So, here are top ten smartphones with at least 5 inches display.
