In 2012, the iPhone received a bigger 4inch screen whilst the new BlackBerry Z30 is expected to have a 5inch screen.

Phones with a big screen are often called "phablets" - a cross between a phone and a tablet computer.

Gadget fans will have to wait to get their hands on the enormous phone as it's not available in the UK yet.
