Best 5 Inch, or 5 Inch+ Phone


Basically I need a large phone since my hand/fingers are pretty big and I find it cumbersome to type in even a 4.3 inch phone keyboard. Quite often I end up pressing either the immediate left or right key of the key I actually want to press, or press more than one key. This is pretty frustrating. I also want bigger screen size for my regular mobile surfing/chatting etc.

So what's the best 5/5+ incher mobile right now?

- Canvas HD, low price, great specs, but lackluster DEV support, almost nil future updates
- Galaxy Note 2, great specs, but hefty price tag
- Xperia Z, mixed reviews + more or less similar price to Note 2
- Optimus G Pro ^

Is it worth to get the Canvas HD or should I save up to get any of the latter? Advices appreciated.

Re: Best 5 Inch, or 5 Inch+ Phone

there is no comparison between canvas HD and other listed phone. I would pick XOLO Q800 @11.3k on ebay (deal of the day)

looks better than canvas devices and feels good in hand (personal experience with XOLO A800)

or if you are ready to go with untested brands then gionee for 16k on ebay is one hell of a phone (specs wise)

Re: Best 5 Inch, or 5 Inch+ Phone

But I keep on hearing about bugs and other issues on XOLO phones - their update cycle is also tremendously slow.

I know there's no comparison between Micromax and the other phones I have listed, but Micromax seems to have the best configuration for a 5' phone, price being a denominator.

Re: Best 5 Inch, or 5 Inch+ Phone

Optimus G Pro has got better hardware than the note2, but in terms of real world usage and user experience note 2 wins hands down..
The S-pen, motion, camera features, battery everything is better than the Optimus G Pro..
Plus the dev support is just fantastic for the note 2..
Android 5.0 on the way
Flipkart is selling Note2 for 32K.. If you can spend that much cash, it should be Note 2..

Re: Best 5 Inch, or 5 Inch+ Phone

32k and 40k is out of budget at least for now. In ebay there are a plethora of chinese phones claiming to have 5 inch IPS 720p screens and 1.2 GHz quad core processors - exactly like the Canvas HD.

I understand that the Note 2/ G Pro are better phones, but they also command a hefty price premiun. Am trying to find something in the middle. Good performance, good dev support yet doesn't break the bank.

Okie bro - will save up for the Note II. Worst thing waiting for phones or any new technology is when you decide to save up and buy the actual thing you see better options

Re: Best 5 Inch, or 5 Inch+ Phone

Yes the Note III is coming out n due time, but you can be sure of one thing.. !
the phone you have is yours !! and no website and friends and people can say anything that makes you want to leave that and go to another more expensive model
That is the story I follow, that is why I have Samsung Focus as my main phone

Re: Best 5 Inch, or 5 Inch+ Phone

The reason that I don't like Grand is that contrary to its price, it is severely underpowered. Also that screen resolution is an eye-sore. 480x800 in a 5 incher is really streching the limits - a phone which comes for 5k lesser, the Canvas HD, runs circles around it all day.
