Can’t decide whether to go for a phone with a 5, 5.6 or 6.4-inch screen? It’s a tough decision, but you’ll find great phones in all sizes at iD Mobile. We’ve picked some of the best to help you decide which one to go for.
Is bigger really better?
It all depends on what you’ll be using it for. A big screen is great if you play games on your phone, or if you use it to catch up on your favourite TV shows. Lots of storage space is also handy if you like to work on the go, whether it’s sending emails or building presentations.
Here are some of our favourite big-screen phones:
Samsung Galaxy Note9
The Note9 is an absolute powerhouse, and with it’s 6.4-inch Quad HD display, everything looks stunning! This new Note comes with the updated Bluetooth S-pen – perfect for working on the go.
The S-pen has some clever tricks up its sleeve too. You can use it as a remote clicker for presentations, or prop your phone up and use it as a camera shutter button up to 10 metres away - great for group selfies! Black, Blue or Lavender, there’s a colour to suit everyone.

A happy medium
If you’re looking for a phone with a good-sized screen but one that’ll still fit in the pocket of your skinny jeans, there are plenty of great phones to choose from. Here are some of our favourite mid-sized smartphones:
Google Pixel 3
The Pixel 3 is the latest handset from Google and it’s packed with incredible features and software. The camera is where this phone really stands out with features like ‘Portrait’ that blur the background and ‘Night Sight’ to improve low-light images, making it look like your pictures were taken by a professional photographer.
It might be a mid-sized phone, but it still manages to squeeze in a 5.5-inch screen, and because it’s a Google phone, you’ll be at the front of the queue for Android updates.

Apple iPhone Xs
Apple has squeezed the same tech you’ll find in the Xs Max into the more compact Xs. You’ll get all the same features like fast wireless charging, Face ID and dual camera technology – just in a smaller package.
Even though it’s more compact its big brother, the iPhone Xs still has a 5.8-inch screen which is great for watching movies and TV.

The P20 comes with some of the latest smart features, like an intelligent battery that keeps everything running smoothly but also saves energy where it can to maximise battery life.
You also get a 5.5-inch screen with high-contrast colours that really pop, an AI-powered dual lens camera, and a huge 128GB memory – peace of mind for even the most photo-happy snapper!
