Quite impressed with your video.

I wouldn't want a phone that large - the iPhone 5 is the limit for physical size I'd find comfortable to use and carry around in my pocket.

The video is nice however I would never need a phone that large. I find the 3.5" on my iPhone 4 to be perfectly fine so when I upgrade to the 4" I'll most likely be fine with that screen size forever. My brother has the SIII and I find that phone to be way to big for me. I know everyone has their preferences so this would be great for people who would want a larger screen size but it wouldn't be perfect for me. I hardly watch videos as it is on my iPhone, mostly music, texting and browsing.

I really think the new HTC One 4.7 inch is exactly the right size.

4.7 inch being the smallest and 5 inches being the biggest.

Phablet. not tablet. It means phone + tablet. A phablet, as the name suggests, is a device that combines the voice-calling capabilities of a smartphone with the larger display sizes of a tablet. Bigger than a smartphone, but not large enough to be a tablet, the screen size of a phablet falls in the 5″ to 7″ region.

If they do, I think they're going to have to do a range of phones, I'm personally not too bothered about a huge phone, but I know some Apple customers want one, so they should keep the iPhone 5 screen size, do the "cheaper" iPhone with the size of the 4S or 5 screen and then the 6 with a 5"+ screen to keep all customers happy

If Apple replaced the current iPhone screen size with that, then I would absolutely not want them to launch it.

Honestly I cannot see the appeal of a phone larger than 5 inches. I can barely see the appeal of a phone larger than 4.5 inches. If your vision is so bad you can't see an HD screen at 5 inches than a smartphone is probably the least of your concerns. If you're a screen hog then perhaps you should get a tablet.

The day Apple stops making a 4-inch screen iPhone that's NOT a budget model (i.e. a flagship 4 inch screen) is the day I drop the iPhone.

Not all Apple users are spoiled kids who think that their taste fits everyone else's. Nor Apple thinks that way either, that's why there are multiple screen sizes for Macs and the iPad (obviously two ATM).
