For me the 3.5" screen is perfect. I hate big phones & think I'd look stupid carrying a 4"+ phone around. If apple continued to make screen sizes bigger,I may never get a phone newer than the 4S

No that's too small. We need one with a 5-5.5" screen like the note and note 2.

If anyone remembers one of the things that Hurt apple was actually extending their product line to the point where it was confusing

Which was on in the list of many things that nearly killed apple
As iPhone gets thinner 4.5" will be perfect.
iPad 7.9" and iPad 9.7" should disappear for 8.9".

I'd enjoy a bigger screen. We shouldn't venture into 5" territory, thats why they made the iPad mini. The 4" was GREAT as an upgrade. I was skeptical at first because it was only .5 and inch but really it was great. However, by failing to expand the width a little bit, typing is a bit difficult. In landscape mode, I get about half and inch of height of text after top borders and bottom keyboard. I'd also really love to see a suggestion bar on top of the keyboard and that would require more space.

Anyway, don't change the height of the phone, it's perfect. Widen it a little bit for more usable functions. Maybe thin out bezels to keep the 16:9 ratio though.

I love my 4" screen. Why do I need a bigger screen? Isn't that what my MBP or iPad is for?

Also do really really need this many threads about the same subject? If you like android and want to bash the iPhone then go to the android forums. They like to do that to make them feel better about themselves.

Larger screen may be advantagious for some things but NOT for others. Its truly a case of personal preference.

I personally think another 0.3" wouldn't hurt one handed usability and would improve usability for all other functions. To be honest, I don't even think the Note 2 is too big. I'd definitely pick up an iPhone of that size.

Your last two words are of paramount importance, because everything boils down to that.

As I've said before, I think the Galaxy Note 2 can be bigger. It's normal size for me now and iPhones look like cheap kids toys to me now. I have no doubt that the next Galaxy Note will have a larger screen.

Or get a dumb phone and carry around your iPad mini?

I surfed the web just fine on my 4 and even better on my 5, I like the size of the 5 as it has more screen but is also portable and fits in your pocket an option for a larger phone would be nice though because some people may like that, I feel like that could only increase their sales.

I know i'm in the minority but i have seen someone else mention it on here, but i have switched from android to iphone because i wanted a high end phone that wasnt the size of the s3 or note.

The o/s is less of an issue than it was; the portability of my phone is personally more important than how quick i can type on it.

But that's just me...

Browsing MacRumors makes it seem like such a huge percentage of iPhone owners want a bigger screen, while that's simply not true... they're just ALL on this forum. If you took a poll of all iPhone users in the country or the world, you'd find that the vast majority do not support a screen increase.

I have never, literally never, met somebody outside of this website who wants a larger screen on the iPhone. And most of my friends have iPhones.

I think it depends on what you use your phone for the most. I like using my phone as a way to call other people. Holding something the size of a brick next to my ear is neither comfortable or practical.

Most iPhone users don't even know how to reboot their phone. The knowledgeable power users are the ones that want larger screens and whose opinions matter more.

Just like the iPad mini.
Exactly right, people also used to admire the weight of the iPhone4 and that light phones felt cheap that was until the 5 came out.

A third of an inch makes takes a phone screen from enjoyable to obnoxious... i mean get a grip.
