I need to see them both first. Part of me says the 4.7", but the 5.5" dependong nt he form factor, assuming it exists, is still intriguing.

I'll probably go 4.7" only because the huge top and bottom panels unless they aren't as big as we've seen in some leaks.

I don't think I'll have problems handeling the 5.5", but since my current iPhone 4S has a great compact size, I might just go with the smaller 4.7" version. Guess I'll have to see one in real-life to decide.

Maybe the 5.5" has greater battery and processing power (or a sapphire display). Maybe even software enhancements. That would make it very difficult to choose.. Unless the price-difference is very big.

There's just too much uncertainty too decide now.

I have to see the 5.5" and I have to know the price and determine if the higher price is worth it. By all accounts it seems like it will be a pricier model, so I need to figure out if its worth it.

I think I'd like to get the 5.5" but I'm not entirely sure, plus I'm content with my 5c.

I will take the 4.7 as my daily driver. Been waiting for years for a lager iPhone but not ready for a "honker" 5.5"! I might buy both but can not imagine putting up with that large of a phone on a daily basis.

What is great is Apple is giving us choice which is always good . . . . well not always as some people are not good a choices.

I'll purchase the 4.7" iPhone 6 first. If in fact a 5.5" screen is released I'll see whether or not it will be worth it to sell the 4.7" iPhone 6 to get it. :apple:

None.

I will never buy an iPhone again. They're not that good at the end of the day. Much better alternatives out there.

Give me DAT 5.5"

With the lack of leaks while a waterfall of leaks and mockups on the 4.7", I have my doubts it'll come out this year, sadly. :(

Neither. I'll pick up a 5S once they're discontinued. Once that dies, I'll see what's available in a smaller screen.

If you only use one device, the 5.5 will be attractive. I'll probably try the 4.7 because I still prefer to do a lot of work on my laptop. Hard to know right now without seeing them in person.

I was pretty set on the 4.7 but if there is a 5.5 option, then I might have to consider it. Especially if it has features that the 4.7 doesn't have.
