The average mobile screen size in the UK and USA increased by around 1 inch over the last 20 months. Release of larger screen sizes came under debate earlier in the year, however despite the concerns, western users have adopted larger screen sizes.

Interestingly the average screen size in India has increased drastically over the last 20 months. Starting off with the low-end 3-inch feature phones being most popular, average screen sizes have increased to 5.5-inches. This shows that emerging mobile markets are now starting to adopt smartphones.
