When one talks about a city one should talk about the metropolitan area, not just the city proper. Phoenix is #10, so technically I guess it could be considered a major city.
The 10 largest metro areas are
1 New York City-Newark-Jersey City, NY-NJ-PA MSA 19,124,359
2 Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim, CA MSA 13,109,903
3 Chicago-Naperville-Elgin, IL-IN-WI MSA 9,406,638

The largest city by population using the metropolitan area definition, which is a loose term referring to urban area and its primary commuter areas, is Tokyo, Japan.

"Well, there are the large U.S. cities, and then there are your major metropolitan centers, like Duluth."
There we all were, sitting outside at a beautiful cafe in the inner city of Vienna with a backlighted view of the Albertina museum, and these rubes are talking about Duluth! Two years later, that story still makes me laugh.
