Like the title says, which size are you going to order and why'd you pick it?

Undecided.

My first instinct is the 4.7' version for better one handed use.

But dat 2900mAh battery of the 5.5' is tempting :cool:

5.5 , my phone is mostly used on line ,so the bigger the screen the better. Really hope 5.5 happens, and if so,soon.

I'm leaning toward the 4.7, but it depends on the specs. If the 5.5 has more compelling features, that's what I will get. I also may end up selling my iPad Air if I buy the 5.5. I honestly don't use it enough to justify owning it, but selling a 64GB wifi model would more than likely incur more loss than I am willing to accept.

5.5", I had Note II early last year, loved that screen size, hated android and slimy plastic. Now I'll be able to use a single device again - and selling both iPad Air and 5S means it'll likely be a "free" device for me :rolleyes:

Obviously we haven't seen them yet, but most like the smaller version. I'm fine with a 4.7 but 5.5 is too big for me personally. Although they are seemingly treating the larger version as a 'pro' with advantageous perks over the smaller one; I wish they wouldn't do that. Or I hope they don't at least... I guess a lot of it comes down to space and what they can squeeze in until there are no bubbles left in the fish tank. But I don't want to purchase the 4.7 and it feel subpar compared to the other device they offer simply because it's smaller.

Undecided. If they have the same exact specs except for the Battery size and screen size, I will be going with the 4.7"

But if there is better specs on the 5.5" I will be getting the larger of the two.

I already know I will be getting Space Grey this year!

Will know soon enough!

I'm getting the 4.7". Owned the note 3 and was a real pain to use with one hand so no more huge phones for me.

4.7. I have the Note 3 now and while the screen is SO much better than my 3.5 inch iPhone 4S I had before it, handling it can be kinda difficult especially when doing one-handed operations or sometimes it just slips through your hand one-handed. So I think I'll take the sweet spot between my 3.5 inch 4S and 5.7 inch Note 3.

In my dream world, I'd be able to test both the 5.5 inch and 4.7 inch in the Apple Store just to be sure which one I want but there's no way I'd get the new iPhone soon if I didn't pre-order or camp for it.

I am thinking I will stick with 5S unless some great new features are only available on the 4.7

I was dead-set on the 5.5", but now I'm not so sure.

If they are released at the same time (which rumors are saying is true) and they have the same features, I'll probably go 4.7".

If both models have the same features and the 5.5" is released later, then I'll go 4.7".

If they are released at the same time and the 5.5" has "better" features (better display, bigger battery, OIS), then I'll get the 5.5".

If they launch the 5.5" with "better" features later, then it's a toss-up... I'm extremely impatient but I'll probably wait it out, since iOS 8 on my 5s will make it feel like a new device.

I'll know for sure tomorrow!

Less than 24 hours! And I don't think you can go wrong either way!

5.5" iPhone [L] Pro Plus! ;)

1) My eyes aren't the best these days. Want a huge screen

2) My hands have never liked the tiny iPhone screen. I'm a pretty big guy.

3) Every 8 year old girl I see has an iPhone stuck in their back pocket and I'll feel better about myself having a bigger phone than they do because I'm a man, dern it!

4) Battery life. If the rumors of ~1800mAh and ~2900mAh are true, I believe the 5.5" will have vastly better battery life because the screen size won't eat up all that extra mAh

5) Much to the displeasure of some 4.7" fans, I believe the 5.5" will have better specs and I want the TOP of the line iPhone.


All that being said, I'm more excited about this phone than I have been for any model since the iPhone 4. :cool:

Since the beginning I've been saying 5.5, but I'm warming up to 4.7 as well. Also depends on which will be the most popular. I learned after buying the 5C that I have very little options for third party cases because the 5/5S is the most popular.

I kind of wish they would have made just one model at 5". I had a Galaxy S4 (5" phone) for a couple days and the screen size was nice. Big enough, but not too big. It would hae been a good middle ground between these two sizes. Plus it would maximize the amount of third party cases and accessories if there was only one size to support. Not to mention production and available stock.

If today's rumour is true about both models being released at the same time then I'm getting the 5.5-inch as I have a feeling it's going to have much better specs and of course a bigger battery.

If the 5.5-inch is out in 2015, I'll get the 4.7-inch.

I'd prefer 4.7", but cant handle the lack of resolution at 720p (according to the rumors) so going 5.5".

I prefer the 4.7". The 5.5 is a bit on the big side for me.

However if it does have a range of better features than I might just bite for the 5.5".
