    Oh bigger screens now thats what I call groundbreaking, bigger screens require massive amounts of R&D with trillions of dollars spent trying to figure out how to increase screen size. Wonder whats next bigger buttons.

    Any indication at all that iphone 6 will get bigger specs or is it just about a bigger screen?....
     
  3. Samsung and the rest better watch out,Apple might just try to patent the size.

    I was thinking the other day about the size of my iPhone 5. It fits in the hand perfectly and I dont think I would want a much bigger screen, but instead better battery life and a higher resolution screen. I would be fine if they increase a tad bit, but not too much.

    Getting some deja-vu here.... back when the bigger screen size rumor was being run out there for the 5, people said the 4S was the ideal size. Although I did actually hear of someone getting a 5 and returning it for the 4S because of the screen size. I wonder if the 6C will have the size screen of the 5.

    I have a 5 and it's a lovely size. I've had larger phones (HTC HD7) but there's something about the iPhone 5 that's just right. The weight, the size. I could live with the bezel being smaller to facilitate a bigger screen but I would consider replacing my 5 with a 5s for the Touch ID and faster CPU with the same pocket size and weight if they make the iPhone 6 too large.
     
  9. Larger screen size? I could hear Jobs is growling (again) from his graveyard..

    I can relate to the size of the phone but definitely not the brand but why on earth would you want a higher resolution on such a small screen? Can you really see the difference between 300 dpi & 1000dpi with the naked eye? If you can you're good.
     
  11. Everyone is different so this is only my opinion FOR me.

    I have had many phones in the last couple years. iPhone 3gs, iPhone 4, HTC 8x, Nexus 4, SX2, S3, Note 2, Mega, and also couple crappy models that I don't recall. With all these phones I was trying to find the perfect phone. I used to always say "if I could get IOS on a NOTE 2 then then would be the perfect phone". I thought screen size was main draw for me, but after having all these different phones, I have settled on the iPhone 4s. The small screen/size is perfection for 1 hand use. The speed is as fast as any phone I have tried. The camera is awesome. And to me, IOS is flawless. I thought I would love a bigger screen iPhone, but my hands aren't growing, so I will be sticking with the 4s. Maybe I will change my mind if they come out with 5" model, but that I think will be my limit.

    Thats true. All I really want is a phone that isnt too big, but fits just right and has a nice resolution.

    When does a phone become a tablet?

    Well then you already have the perfect phone for yourself. Although I do like some of Apple's products, it's the company itself I've got no time for.
