    5" or above is considered phablet (5.3" is the Note 1 and 5.5" is the Note 2)

    There is a rumor that the Note 3 will have a 6.3" screen size.

    the first Note sold 10 millions
    the second Note is projected to sell 20 millions (according to Samsung).

    4.5''

    If 4.3'' was an option I would have voted for that but I'll take 4.5''.

    You forgot the perfect size, 4.3". My old GSII had the best screen size

    I find the iPhone 5 a little too skinny. Maybe 4.5.

    4.8 but only if the screen is wider too otherwise it looks like an elongated brick.

    I would be truly excited to have my loyalty to iOS rewarded, by giving me the one thing I really want from Apple. An iPhone with a more comfortable & useable screen.

    Based on trying my friends Galaxy S3 & Note 2, give us a 4.8" to 5.5" size & the iPhone will look & feel modern & up to date. Not to mention the amazing increase in sales.

    You can add that yourself by editing the post

    I feel that a 4.5-4.7 in iPhone would be great. And no 5" phones are not considered phablets, anything in the 5.3" area and up would be considered phablet-sized. HTC isn't advertising the DNA as a phablet and to many people it isn't. It's size seems mainstream already.

    I guess I'm the odd one out. I actually like the size of the iPhone 5 display >.<. 4.3" might be OK, though.

    I could edit the title to add in 4.3" but can't edit the poll.

    I'm down for as big as a display as they can make without making a device much larger than the 5. By my estimation, that would probably be 4.8"

    4.3 would probably be a nice size. IPhone would be wider while still fitting into a pocket.

    4.3-4.5 would be perfect

    Nexus 4 with a 4.7 screen felt too wide in my hand

    This is all personal opinion and every user will vary of course :D

    4.5-5 screen size here. I played with the note II loved the phone but it was BIG. GS3 was perfect however I think by cutting down on some trim a 5" can be in same form factor making it perfect.

    5".

    Also 5" isn't considered phablet. There are other 5" devices out there and they are not phablets. After using the Note 2 I would say 5.5" but an iPhone doesn't really need to be that big, if it has ridiculous ppi like competing devices at that screen size then that is good enough, but not listed in the poll.

    I actually like the iPhone 5's screen. Sometimes I have to reposition my hand to reach the top of the screen while using one handed so any bigger and it would be a hassle to use. I use my iPhone as a phone so I don't care for a huge screen, makes the phone part kinda impractical.

    Loving the 4" of the iPhone 5. 4.3" might be perfect though.

    Expected iPhone 5 to be 4.5" but ended up disappointed it wasn't.

    So, yeah, 4.5" please. That would be an ideal compromise for iFans having to choose between a traditional iPhone and upward-scaling Samsungs...

    I don't like the iPhone 5 screen ratio. Apple should've just keep the same ratio and screen resolution as the older iphones and just increase the size of the iPhone 5 to 4".
