I think we need a woman's perspective on this one.

I think that women will have the definitive answer to this question...so ladies,

At what point does big become TOO BIG?

I pose the question in this manner as women have different size purses, handbags, clutches etc. so I think they are the experts when it comes to the right 'size' of equipment.

It isn't the size that matters, it's how you put your equipment to use.

4 inches is max unless Apple can figure out how to get 4.3 inch screen with the exact same iPhone 5 case. Other wise, its too big going up and still have a phone for MOST using one hand. Those that like bigger.....Go elsewhere for your portable computer needs

Here we go Apple finally got a clue(DUH!) and is making a larger iPhone.

In the first photo an Apple employee no doubt a genius is showing the proper way to hold this new model so you can avoid holding it wrong(a common problem with a previous model).

The second photo is for all the doubters and naysayers who'd say this phone is a fake, it clearly shows Apple store employees putting the phone up on display, so yeah folks it's real, a big iPhone from Apple is already out there.

I really enjoyed the 4.7 Nexus 4 (battery life made me ditch it)

So iPhone hardware with a similar 4.7 screen would be awesome time

As a side note would a Mod please fix "to" to "too" on the topic please? I just noticed it and my OCD is flaring up.

Ditch the glossy plastic already.

It's a trade off between more viewing area and harder to reach corners one-handed. Going from a 3.7" to a 4.8" required some time to adjust. I eventually got used to it. It's not often I need to reach the far corner with my thumb while using my phone one-handed. I just put my most used apps and shortcuts in the middle or right of my home screens. Most of the time, I do fine with one hand. I type in landscape mode, two-handed anyway, so it's not like I have to exclusively use my phone one handed.

With the larger screen, it makes my old phones seem tiny in comparison. It is definitely nicer viewing videos and pictures on a larger screen.

I agree. I am happy with the 4" screen but 4.5" screen wouldn't be terrible
