    There's now a ~10" iPad, a ~8" iPad, and a 4" iPhone. I would love to see Apple slot in a 5"-6" iPhone Pro that could compete with the Galaxy Note II, LG Optimus, and all these other huge Android phones coming out.

    I love my iPhone 5, but there are still times I wish it had just a bit more screen real estate.

    Anyone else feel the same?

    With the rediculous demand there is for all things Apple I just don't think the manufacturing could take another iPhone size. Perhaps in a couple generations when manufacturing has caught up to demand.

    True, there is now a slot between 4 and 8 inches where they could add a 5.7" or 5.8" phablet. I guess we'll see.

    Nope.

    Also I swear this has already been discussed in another thread here in the last couple of days.

    I still don't see it happening. I would have liked to seen a 4.3" 4:3 phone.

    The whole "bigger is better" thing is out of hands. It started with wheels, then watches, and now phones. I was happy with the 3.5" and I think 4" will be plenty large enough for a phone. If I need a bigger screen I will just use the Ipad. If I need something bigger still I will use the Mac Mini connected to a 21" monitor.

    I would bet an entire fortune if I had it that at least half of the people who say NO to a 5 inch iPhone, would buy it if Apple made one.

    If Apple released a "bigger" iPhone then they would have just too many products to choose from. If you want an Apple product as a cellular phone then you MUST get an iPhone, there aren't many options.

    Unless Apple made the "bigger" iPhone $299 on contract and $800 off contract I don't see how it would happen. I feel like the majority of people would definitely purchase a larger iPhone if the price was the same. If they did I would definitely be on board w / a bigger iPhone.

    With the iPad Mini being priced at $329 and the New iPod Touch I don't see why anyone would purchase an iPod Touch. (There are similarities here because this is how it would be w / a bigger iPhone and regular iPhone) I think there are major pricing issues
    w / these two products, and feel like the iPod Touch will suffer greatly.

    I agree with you, I think the iPod will suffer lots with the current pricing plan.
