There is still no need for a bigger case

1120 x 640 = 4-inch in the same form factor

I was just explaining to my daughter the other day how we can use any apple cord to charge up any of our devices, iPad, old iPhone, new iPhone and added in how great that was since it wasn't long ago that every time I bought a new phone, I needed to buy a new extra cord and one for the car. Now, they are gonna make me look stupid? I hope not...

True, its already amazingly thin.

I too would like more battery life. But they would be gaining more battery real estate if the phone is taller, (and should be wider to maintain the correct screen ratio)

Having a bigger screen means more juice would be required.

On other problem with going thinner. the bigger and thinner the phone, the easier it would be to crack it. More leverage less resistance.

1. Ugly

2. Useless screen format (really, that's an awkward screen ratio, especially for anything you want to use in landscape mode).

If anything were to grind my gears about this design, Its the dock...
If they do change the DOCK then I have some very new, Very expensive LOD's
that are about to become obsolete, Until I can get a third party connector and hope and pray I can solder this onto my existing LOD cables...
