One hand operation and light weight are very important to me. I hope that screen will get larger without compromising image quality and above requirements. Bring on igzo screen!

Trust me, stay away from that POS. My buddy works for Verizon and that was his Best device (it's a program in store to keep the newest phones in the employees' hands) and that phone is such a POS. God awful screen and so slow and the sound quality sucked.

I will say though, the OG Incredible was fantastic.

I want the next one because I want 4G and I want more than 16GB. Man, what a dumb move to save $100.

I've never owned an iPhone before.
Get the Ip 5 as soon as you can. The next iteration of the Ip 5 will just be a spec bump, which won't affect you much. You will really enjoy the Ip 5. Don't wait, you can get a really good deal on one.

I'm on the S cycle I suppose. I'll upgrade to the 5S. I'm not saying I won't upgrade to the next iPhone after that if the size isn't bigger, that's just ridiculous. But if Apple realized an iPhone the size of the Note 2, I'd probably get that one.

I have a question, it's probably a stupid one. Why doesn't Apple just realize multiple sizes? 3.5", 4", 5.5" screens?

The weird tall skinny form which is the same as the S3

external dimension difference is negligible.

You must not have ever seen a S3. The screen size is not the same as the iP5. It's wider. Maybe you should research a bit before you post things like this.

You must not understand the difference between "size" and "width". Maybe you should research a bit as these are pretty basic concepts.

Both screens are the same ratio. Size is completely separate from that.

I like the 3.5" display on the 4s. I have an iPad and a MBP if I need a bigger display.

I don't see the infatuation with giant screen phones. My cousin has one and it looks like he is holding up an iPad Mini when he makes a call.

For me, the size of the 5 is fine.

I don't see the infatuation with tiny screen phones. My friend has one and it looks like he is holding up an old small lcd calculator when he makes a call.

I use to have the evo a few years back then I got the 4s and never looked back. I'm thinking to upgrade once the 5s comes out but for now I'm very happy with my 4s.

Lets be real here...everyone in this thread who says that 4" is ideal would happily pre-order a 4.6-4.8" iPhone 6.

For many of us it's mostly about the OS, and not the size of the screen. Personally I think the iPhone 5 screen is nice, but I like my 4S screen. When I am due for an upgrade next year I hope the size isn't bigger than the 4", but if it is, I'd most likely get it because like I said I like iOS.

It's this type of arrogant attitude that's going to eventually knock Apple off their iThrone.

Why make your customers choose between sticking with your products and switching to android over something as simple as screen size. Different people have difference preferences. Give them options. Mac laptops come in multiple sizes, iPads come in multiple sizes, why not iPhones too?

Those big phones just look nice. I am so tempted to buy those phones and just give up my iPhone.

Apple should be more considerate and make a few options. Let the customer pick.

I have friends who feels the same too.
I had to work on updating a users activesync password (I work in I.T. where there are people with all kinds of phones, blackberries, androids, iPhones - you name it) and it was ridiculous - I could hardly use the touchscreen at all - I was like a fumbling idiot just trying to type on his phone.

After 10 minutes of fumbling around with something that should have taken no more than a minute I found the darned thing had a slide out keyboard and used that. It was still awkward but the touchscreen on some of these droid phones are impossible to control. I could never use one.

Very much doubt the screen size will be increased in the next version.

A lot of developers haven't even upgraded their apps to the new resolution yet, never mind adding a 3rd one into the mix.

The next iPhone will probably just be a minor update.

Wrong. I will never get any phone over 4" ever again, unless there are NO phones that size. Had 'em, don't like 'em. I don't watch movies or TV on my phone......that's what a 60" plasma is for. I don't spend my days watching You Tube videos or surfing the web on my phone.....that's my iPad and HP Touchpad are for. I just want a small, light phone to make and take phone calls, get an email or two, send and receive texts, and serve up gobs of unlimited LTE to all of my mobile devices.

I know just what you mean, I once rode in a car, and it was bumpy and uncomfortable. I will never ride in a car again. I mean since one was like that then they all will be right?
