Re: deathmatch or who cares?
For guys, many backpacks had specially pockets were i could put my phone.  Now, with such large screens, I can't even fit it in my pant's pocket.  I'm not the type of person crazy for smartphones with large screen; tThe smaller screen the better.  I have heard of people trying to fit their iphone 6 into their jean's pocket, something that is both sad and amusing.

Re: deathmatch or who cares?
I second that.  While in theory, phablets are a great idea, its a theory for most users. I find I tend to do tasks which require a larger screen on a tablet (iOS in my case) and day to day on my Android phone.  That being said, oh do I miss those smaller phones like the 4s.  They fit beautifully in pockets and for us females, we don't need monster hands to use them.  I must say that I really hope the trend towards smaller devices comes back.

Re: deathmatch or who cares?
I have an android tablet and an iphone. The benefits of an android are that is it very easy to install and remove apps.  Its large screens allow me to read my favorite eBooks.  I wouldn't get any of these devices because of their large screen size.  It is very inconvenient to carry a large devices around.   Iphone 4 and 5 are small enough that they fit on my pocket or bagpack.   If a need a large device I rather use my tablet.

Re: deathmatch or who cares?
A lot depends on the platform of these devices and the gap in the benefits that would be gained if a user decides to switch platforms. If a user is comfortable with both platforms then it will be interesting to see their choice and the reasoning behind it.

deathmatch or who cares?
Frankly, I'd be happy with either device, though I'd prefer something smaller.
