    I was one of those that left the Apple ecosystem for Android just for screen size, but the 6+ brought me back. Last night, I found an old 4s and I immediately missed the form factor. If Apple released an iPhone 7 with the screen size of the 4/4s, would you be interested? Or is screen size > portability?

    5.2" with reduced bezels would be perfect for me.

    I have a Nexus 6 with a 6.0" display that I've enjoyed for nearly one year. It's a terrific smartphone and the one I use as my primary phone. It's only slightly larger than the iPhone 6/6S plus. But the larger display is a big leap. Wonderful for someone like myself that uses the phone like a mini laptop. I always have my MB with me, yet for a short wait in line at the airport or other situation when you don't want to sit down with a laptop, the smartphone makes it easy to do a very wide variety of things.

    3.5" iPhones were very popular with the ladies, old people and such.

    Absolutely and positively NO! I'm in the 5.5" screen camp and never looking back. :cool:

    Either the 5.5" screen with a smaller body (less bezel room) or as big of a screen as they can fit in the 6 Plus chassis. Big screens are where it's at. I loved the size of my 6 Plud and I love the size of my 6s Plus.

    I miss the design and build quality of 3.5inch iphones(like the 4/4s). I don't miss the screen size.

    If apple would make a 5 inch phone with the 4s design (steel and glass) and thickness (more battery) and small bezels i would instantly buy it.

    I went from a 5s to the 6 for the size, then realized that I should have gone to the 6+. I corrected that by getting a 6s+ and am totally happy with it. I can see by the voting results that there is a small number of people who would be happy with the smaller sized unit. But you would never find me among them.

    I'm also planning on getting an iPad Pro, so that should tell you something additional about what I think the proper size for iPhones and iPads are.

    Maybe I should have said this, because you bring up a good point. I like the size of the 4/4s, not necessarily the screen size.

    I could see some people wanting the 4" screen size. But the 3.5"? Nope. To cramped and small. Just look at how iOS 8 and iOS 9 run on a 3.5" device. The keyboard takes up more than half the screen. The 4" size is the smallest that iOS runs nicely on

    No way! Within a week of getting an iP6 even the 5/5s seemed ridiculously small to me. I wouldn't want a display less than 4.7". In fact, I wouldn't mind at all if the iP7 offered a 5" model.

    That would be way too small for me to use. I had a 4s, and now I couldn't even see myself using a 4".

    Nope. I actually switched to android for a while because there was no iPhone with big screen

    Apple took way too long to get to a decent screen size. No way would I want a sub 4.5" screen on my phone.

    Absolutely not. I've been down with the 5+ inch display game for 2 years now. I can't go back.

    I kinda miss the iPhone 4. Was a good size and easy to use. Just my thoughts.

    I still have an iPhone 5 along with my newer iPhones.
    It looks so small and I can't believe I used to use that thing.

    After the bliss that is my H U G E Plus screen, I could NEVER return to that tiny screen.

    Nope. 6S is fine the way it is. It just needs long battery life.
