Google "The first Google-influenced Motorola phones will start to appear in the second half of 2013, Wicks said, and if you like smaller form-factor devices or stock Android, you're going to be excited." This is exactly what the market needs, to be honest. Stock Android phones straight from Google that aren't Nexus devices. Nexus devices are nice, but are available in a limited set of countries only, and the Nexus 4 is continuously out of stock. Hopefully Motorola will do a better job on the availability front.

Large screen phones

Are all the rage where I am at the moment.
Women seem to love them but they already have a place to store them while they are out and about (handbag)

Many of the men hate them with a vengance. The don't fit into pockets or anywhere else for that matter.

At least two of them are giving their Samsung devices to their wives/children and going back to their old phones. These happen to be iPhones btw.

The old saying about the size of a mans phone relates inversely to the size of his you know what....

These large phones do IMHO say nowt more than

'Hey look at me, aren't I a poser'
Much like the gold medallions that men used to wear in the 1970/80's

I currently carry my wallet, phone, and keys in my pockets.

I see no reason to carry a bag with me at all times.

Is there something other than your phone that you'd be keeping in this messenger bag?? I'm curious now.

I don't have a problem fitting my nexus 4 in my pockets.

Or is that not a large phone anymore?
