Why can't you make the 6.1" medium sized phone just as premium as the other two??? This would be the perfect size for a lot of people! I love my iPhone X, but it's just a little too small, and the Plus is way too big.

I would buy an even smaller one. I think a lot of people would. They say smaller phones are dying and people aren't buying them but maybe its not the size its the features. (I say that a lot)

Was so much easier when there was only one iPhone released and a couple of storage options. So hard to decide now!!

I have to agree. Why they would make the model smack in the middle the one with limited features makes zero sense to me. I'd like a little more size on my X but I'm not open to sacrificing anything I currently have to move up.

Partially because I think they’re trying to compete with the other smart phone manufacturers that are offering 6 inch smart phones, but At a more an affordable entry price point For those who do want a new form factor, Face ID, etc. I don’t think every consumer cares about an OLED display, having the best camera, ect. Personally think it’s a great idea that they’re offering the 6.1 LCD iPhone, and not just the 5.8/6.5 iPhone models. But obviously we have to see next week exactly what the 6.1 LCD iPhone is all about and what it will offer.

the 6.5 is only about 10% wider and longer than the 5.8.

Because the 6.1" model is literally what the average iPhone buyer wants.

iPhone Q3'18 average selling price = $728
iPhone (5.8", 6.5") average = 6.1"

This concept shouldn't be difficult to understand. If Apple added or subtracted features from the 6.1", it wouldn't be what most people want.
