    5.5. Except it's in the wrong frame.

    Hopefully the next iteration will come in a smaller frame.

    I do use a 6th gen iPod Touch also so I guess I'm ok with any size. But I'd like a 5.5 in a more manageable size.

    5" with all or nearly all of it being the display.

    a 5.5 inch display sitting in a 5.9 inch x 3 inch phone. Edge to edge display, not necessarily wrapped like the S7 Edge but a little more curve than what apple is doing now. And with slightly chamfered edges so we can get a grip on it (similar to nexus 6p).
    But if we are talking about iphone sizes that actually exist, I still say the 5.5. Even though I hate owning such a big phone.

    4 inch. After using the iPhone SE for a day, my 5 inch phone feels like a huge phablet to me. Yuck.

    4 inch is great for me. It's the most usable, and the aspect ratio is great.

    Of apple.cojld get rid of at least 50% of the bezel their 5.5" phone would be the ideal smartphone for me. Even with the 7 we are going thinner but not a smaller footprint. Shrinking in the wrong plane imo.

    4 inches. If I wanted a bigger screen on a mobile device I'd reach for my tablet. 4.7" is okay but isn't one-handable, and the 5.5" phone just feels awkward in any situation but portrait mode with two hands.

    Yep. I hope Apple will make the 4 inch phone a permanent part of their family, perhaps have the staggered twice-annually release.

    4.7' is the best screen size for me. It's pocketable enough to use with one hand. The galaxy nexus was the perfect phone for me (from a size standpoint, battery was god awful), the 6s makes it the best overall smartphone I have ever owned.

    5.5-inch but with smaller bezels.

    But, based, off the current iPhones out right now: 4.7-inch -- not too big, not too small.

    The 4.7 phone is a bit too big. Sometimes I need to take stairs awkwardly so it doesn't dig in when it's in my front pocket.

    The screen on the 4 is a bit small.

    I guess my perfect phone is primarily dictated by device size not screen size.
