We still remember the time when the smaller the phone, the more hi-tech and in demand it was. Case in point: old school gems like the Nokia 8890. The 8890 also doubled as a status symbol, much like how the iPhone is today. In other words, if you had one back then, sikat ka!

This isn't the case anymore. In fact, you could say we've done a complete 180-degree turn in terms of the size of flagship smartphones. Brands now like them big, and by big we mean hard-to-handle-with-one-Pinoy-hand big. That's aside from having cutting-edge features.

To give you a better idea of just how large they've been getting, we've come up with a list of the smartphone behemoths, the ones that dwarf their ancestors from a decade ago and tell us that, hey, size matters with mobile phones.

Check them out below, starting with the relatively small but still huge five-inchers.


1. HTC Butterfly

                                     

A sleek and refined-looking smartphone from our friends in HTC, the Butterfly is a quad-core wonder with full wireless connectivity including blazing-fast 4G.

Display size: 5 inches

Other "big" features: Quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, 4G LTE, 1080p HD touchscreen, 8-megapixel HD camera

2. LG Optimus Vu

Pronounced as "view," the Vu is a rather odd-looking smartphone, with a wide 5-inch display that's much more square-ish compared to its counterparts. The reason for this unusual setup is to make the device a better gadget for things like reading eBooks and viewing images, videos, and online sites hence, the name.

Display size: 5 inches

Other "big" features: Quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, 8-megapixel main camera, stylus, touchscreen with IPS (in-plane switching) for more viewing angles, 32GB capacity

Yours for: P27,990
