Is Bigger Really Better?

Now that the Samsung Galaxy Note has been on the market for about a week and a half, the question of whether bigger is really better has to be considered.

Does any one else think that the whole obsession with "bigger is better" makes sense? The Galaxy Note is definitely an impressive phone/tablet/whatever you want to call it, but is a 5.3" screen really necessary?? When does one draw the line between phone and tablet? If the obsession with bigger, badder, bolder phones continue, I almost fear that phones will eventually turn into giant laptop screens. What's the point of having a phone that is bigger than most palms when you can have a slim, easy to carry smartphone in your pocket, and a slim, however, easy to carry tablet in your bag? Why go dutch with your phone and tablet when you can just have both and not compromise on size and ease of use?

Someone, preferably with normal-sized hands, please enlighten me on this whole giant phone phenomenon...
