I wish there were choices: 3.5" iPhone mini, 4" iPhone 5s and 5" iPhone Max.
People want more choices. U might not want a big screen, but some of us do.

The way Apple is operating, one never knows.

I don't care what it's called, if it has a modern sized display I'm a buyer. I was just about to give up on the thought of Apple being open minded to current trends.

This (if true) is outrageously good news. You'll see, Apple will sell the large screen iPhone in massive quantities.

The naysayers that swore Apple would never build a smaller iPad were completely wrong. This is no different.

Haha this made me laugh. I've been thinking about this for a while. We're kind of losing the concept of phone now. I think that this could be a serious thing where you can now buy internet plans for tablets. If the tablet had a mic and speaker you could use line to make calls and texts... why do we need actual cell service? The only reason is to sell multiple products, but I think eventually it's going to go away. Why be linked to a phone number that changes if you change services? Just get a line ID or something. The only advantage is uniformity, but when given a bunch of popular options I think the public will eventually figure it out.

They just changed screen size, and now another iPhone? with a larger screen.

I really don't want the fragmentation in apps to expand even more. I hate having these black bars on my iPhone as is. Adding another resolution would only further this hell of indifferent iPhone apps. Let's just stick to these 2 resolutions please.

Yes Please!!!

The only thing Android phones have that interest me are the larger screens.

Apple sells 5 different Macbooks in various sizes and configurations to cater to different needs/wants. Why can't they do the same for phones? One size does NOT fit all!

Once u own an iPad mini and then use a regular iPad, u realize how huge and cumbersome it is. Portability and usability is important. I use my iPad mini 50% more than I used to use the iPad 3. I can take it anywhere and it doesn't bother me.
I would LOVE a 5" iPhone. I don't care if I have to pay $600 for it...
Alas I did pay $600 for the iPhone 1 back in 2007!

Yep--if they do it, everyone will call it a me too product. If they don't do it, everyone will say they're not competing well with Android. It's a lose/lose for Apple.

This rumor was fabricated by someone in Korea. Because Western journalists can't do Math.

would be grand

seems desperate to have so many releases in a short amount of time but if they can pull off an iphone with a bigger screen and a higher res-camera, that might just be exactly what apple needs to get back in command of the smart phone market. I'd consider buying one full-price if it had it 4.8" and 12 megapixels.

also, i like the name iPhone Math better than iPhone + lol
