    No. Simply put the iPhone 5 is too long, but the screen size is perfect. So lose the chin and forehead, or at least make them shorter.

    Even the iMac chin is shorter now than it used to be.

    It's there for practical reasons. If they made the home button any smaller it would be harder to press, it's the perfect size for that thump they tout so much about.

    Well don´t you think it´s time for evolution or even revolution? I wouldn´t mind a much smaller button. Or maybe they can implement the "no home button at all", which have been rumouring around.

    I am not for or against whatever they do, I am just saying why the 'chin' is there. I am sure they will remove it once there hardware has evolved enough to be used without it.

    The length is still shorter than virtually every android phone in existence. The S III is taller for instance. It's the narrow width that's giving you the perception that its too tall. I think you just want it to look shorter so it looks lightly better proportion wise. It can't be practicality issue because its already virtually the shortest phone on the market.

    No, it is a practicality issue. I really have to reach with my thumb to push the buttons up of the screen. I can´t reach them without moving my hand and that causes a risk for the iPhone to fall, not to mention the strain on my hand.

    With iPhone 4 I didn´t have any problems.
