Does anyone really need a HUGE phone??

I know this isn't some crazy elaborate post or anything, but it doesn't need to be. I really have one simple question, why are phones becoming so ridiculously giant nowadays? Did I miss something here? 

I can totally understand that those types of phones are great for watching movies and what not, but are you watching so many movies on your phone that you forget it has to fit in your pocket? 

But I must warn you, I'm some what biased(racist?) towards giant phones, cause I'm a pretty tiny guy and I like to get down and party in my slim fit pants. 

Shoot me some reasons as to why you like your giant phone or also get the feeling that a 4.7 inch screen on a phone-emphasize PHONE- is some kind of pointless. 

Forever confused about what phone to get next, Devin.
