to put it simply, yes...

Especially if you are 6'6" like me. The current iPhone is simply too small to be used.

Nice troll job. So your battery only lasts 30 minute or is that just BS?

Unless this is a very good photoshop fake, a 3d printer fake or the board for the new iPad Mini. or even a leak of a part that might have been from a prototype that was rejected

The only real proof that said model is happening is when Tim and Co announce it. Until then who knows.

While you are correct about use being a factor, it's less about apps being open and more about the apps themselves. Bigger battery drainers are background app refresh (which is why folks notice a difference when they force quit the apps cause it kills that function), location services (especially with apps like Swarm which use LS constantly and don't quit when you force quit), having things like bluetooth on and constantly searching for something to connect to and so on.

I know someone who loves the iphone but he complains about big fingers that presses 4 buttons at once and bad eye site that a bigger screen should ease, so yes they can live with a bad software and crappy hardware to be able to use a "smart phone"

Bigger screen, yes
Better screen. No
Please check the technology used for screens

There are definitely two different devices, and both are likely to be larger than the 5s. Up to now this has been pure speculation (there have only been leaked cases for one size of device). Also, the circuits do not take much more area than the 5s, so the battery size is probably increased. Finally, the arrangement across the top is different from the 5s, indicating that there is probably some added functionality (this is not just a re-cased 5s).

The background looks real - probably a laminate desk, and the lighting is also plausible (the highlighting looks consistent across the background and the cards), so this looks like one of the most plausible leaks so far this year.

Well it does. Kinda.

Instead of killing the app, turn of Facebook's location services and background app refresh and that will boost your battery life.

There are loads of little things you can tweak that don't affect end user experience (Mainly it's just turning off the stuff that you don't use) that can get you a bit of extra juice out of your battery. Last time I posted a little guide I got hounded by members on here saying "Why should I have to cripple my device in order to get a decent battery life!?".

I tried to tell them that it in fact doesn't cripple your device at all, it just switches off the stuff you don't use, but they were having none of it.

Their loss.

The G3 is an excellent example of why a company should not increase the resolution for its sake. If anything, the G3 makes me want Apple not upgrade the screen other than making it more power efficient.

Well, I would upgrade the screen to 1920 x 1080. That is standard full HD, which is a universal standard size which would make using a lot of media products easier. At least for now, until 4K becomes mainstream.

Yep, all my iPhone friends even comment how clear and sharp my Nexus 5 screen is. It is an incredible screen. I bought it as a stop gap until the iphone 6 came out, as I just couldn't live with the 3.5" screen on my iPhone 4 any longer, and the iPhone 5s just wasn't enough of an upgrade (and not for double the price of an N5). I hope the battery is good on the i6, as the one on the N5 is pretty poor. Literally the only thing I dont like about it though, i'm suprised how good Android 4.4 and the Google ecosystem is. That wasnt really supposed to happen :-)

My train to work 2 years, pretty much every commuter had an iPhone. Now its less than half, nearer a third. Apple need to wow a lot of people who have shifted away (including myself) with the new iphone, I hope they dont disappoint.

"Better screen to device size ratio" not "better screen".

So what you're saying is, only dumb people want 5.5" phones?
I really have a hard time understanding all the hate towards a bigger device. I can understand if you don't prefer it and leave it at that, but it's like some people are losing their minds about it.
Makes no sense.

Agreed, the G3's screen resolution at this point is a negative for me. 1080p IMO

That's a common misbelief. You're not supposed to close apps down. If you're supposed to close apps, don't you think Apple would have implemented a "close all" button? You're only supposed to close down apps if they're malfunctioning and requires a restart.

If you want to save battery life, go into settings > background app refresh and disable Facebook.

It is very easy - when your have tiny unusable screen it is doesn't matter which OS is running on such device. Apple forced many users to try android and it is actually not bad at all.

Not that I have seen. I check several sites several times a day and haven't seen a home button. Have seen a supposed backlight for the 5.5" model but just once.

With localization turned ON in Maps, my iPhone 5 lasts no more than 30 to 45 minutes, so this makes sense.

Now that I have bought an Automatic Link, it has a background localization service enabled that lasts much more than 45 minutes, but reduces my battery life of a good 30%.

I'm not sure what other people use but I do the same thing as you, which is being productive and enjoy quick social media status updates, news reading, and texting throughout the day and my 5s will last through the day until I go to sleep. I've never have issue with battery.

My coworkers have insane battery issue and when I ask, they're streaming youtube and music all day long. This is a usage issue, not a battery issue.
