Yes, the 4S screen is shorter than the 5'sI'm surprised how quickly I got used to the larger 4" screen. looking back at my old iphone 4s, now it seems like it is the 4s' screen that is too short (rather than the 5's screen feeling too tall when apple first announcted it).
I'm pretty sure he meant that now when he looks at a 4S, it looks ridiculously small like it was too short to begin with, now being used to the 5's screen.Yes, the 4S screen is shorter than the 5's
You shouldn't pass judgment on a device before you have it in your hand. Pictures can do a lot to make something look more appealing or even less appealing depending on many factors.I too was surprised how quickly I adjusted.
I thought the iPhone 5 was ugly as sin before release.
Glad I'm not the only oddball around hereIn my experience not only is it the shorter one, but far better than my rather uninteresting iPhone 5.
I find the iPhone 4S, the best of the lot where iPhones are concerned.
That S3 is an enormous beast. It needs its own zip code. I'm glad the iPhone 5 kept reasonable proportions, because I never intend to lug something around that big. I know a lot of people love those wall mounted phones but for me it's all about having it on me without noticing it....The S3 being as wide as it is doesn't slide sideways and stays top down, so the S3 is actually more comfortable in my pocket.
Yes it is a bit too big, 4.3-4.5" with a 1280x720 would have been perfect. Like I said, the iPhone 5 to me is neither big nor small enough, a bit pointless. If I can only have one phone out of these three, it will be the 4S, but since I'm not restricted I'll keep the 4S and S3 and have the best (or worst to some) of both worlds.That S3 is an enormous beast.

I was initially concerned that the 5 would be too big, but it's really just fine because it is still the same width.

I think i5 is the best looking iPhone yet. Very pleased with mine.
My experience exactly. The S3 has me spoiled. I do a lot of email text and IM. The narrow display of the iPhone simply doesn't cut it. It's like half of a feature. Not a whole feature. Boasting about a larger display for iPhone 5 is very misleading to the person who is not an enthusiast.Glad I'm not the only oddball around here
The 5 is not comfortable in my jeans pocket sideways, but keeps shifting sideways while in my pocket. The S3 being as wide as it is doesn't slide sideways and stays top down, so the S3 is actually more comfortable in my pocket.
It is hilarious, the numerous people saying how dumb it'd be to have a larger screen, and if Apple makes it bigger, I'll just keep what I got. Now that they have them, it's like when McDonald's invented the Super Size meal.I like the idea of the 4" and it'll be nice to get at some point, but I just have to laugh at the predictable way this all played out.
How when the 4" was first revealed there was endless moaning about how awful it sounded. And if course as soon as people actually started getting them, the tune changes to how much better it is and how inferior the old screen is in comparison.
I'm not saying either any of the opinions are right or wrong, it's just silly how we are so desperate as consumers to justify whatever we currently have, that we need to constantly verbalized our disdain for the alternatives.
Typed from an iPad that will go from being "the perfect size, what was apple thinking making a mini" to "you know, the smaller form factor really makes way more sense than this big cumbersome thing"
Not me. Left my Droid X (4.3" screen) for the iPhone 5 and couldn't be happier. It was down to two smart phones for me (the S3 and iPhone 5) and there was simply no comparison. Left Droid and not at all teary-eyed about it. I'm not the only "former" Droid owner "recent" iPhone convert, either. To each his own, I guess, but your blanket, overgeneralized statement is opinion rather than fact.Now you understand why the majority of Android users will stay with Android.
