Too big for my tastes. If I want something that is that big, I'll buy an iPad mini.

No. It would not be interesting. 5.7" is huge, how would you carry that? It's basically an iPad Mini. Plus, all these "renderings" is just the same iPhone made bigger (I can do the same thing in PhotoShop for you if you'd like). There's nothing new to the design.

Too big for me.

I wouldn't mind less bezel either by making the screen bigger or even the device smaller around the 4" screen.

I'm not keen on the 5 either. Too tall and narrow.

Whu not make it slightly wider and have a proper aspect ratio.

It's a very good render and concept, but meh... It reminds me too much of the S3/S4 size, which is too big for me. Stretching the thumb of which ever hand I'm using has to be able to touch the very opposite corners, the S3 is almost a two handed device, and the S4 more so.

Technically, for HDTV/Airplay and videos, the iPhone 5 does have a proper aspect ratio of 16:9.

I'd like that in a 4.7-5 " design. Interesting how it sort of looks like a GS4! Let the lawsuits ensue!

If its more than 5" its no longer a phone, but a "micro tablet". But at 5.7" you're looking at a iPad mini, pure and simple.

If people want larger devices, why don't they just get a small tablet and let the phones be phones? Never understood that personally.

Isn't 16:9 a proper aspect ratio?

Not too big for me, I'd definitely jump all over that.

Looks gorgeous.

That was a great video, much better than other renders. I loved the music as well. Anyone know what song that was?

That said, at 5.7 inches it is too big for me.
