The skinny on big-screen smartphones

CNET Asia puts five powerful smartphones to the pants test to see which will fit best in your pocket.

Is that a Samsung Galaxy Note and Galaxy Nexus in your pocket or are you just happy to see me? Aloysius Low/CNET Asia

If you're eyeing a Samsung Galaxy Note but worry whether its 5.3-inch display makes it "pocketable," we've got you covered.

We put five powerful smartphones--the Droid Razr (4.3-inch), the Galaxy Nexus (4.65-inch), the HTC Sensation XL (4.7-inch), the Dell Streak (5-inch), and the Samsung Galaxy Note--to a pocket test.

Unfortunately, our mobile phone reviewer Aloysius wears (relatively) baggy jeans, so if your wardrobe only consists of skinnies, this might not apply.

See if these phones are a comfortable fit for you, then let us know your ideal handset size in the comments below.
