    Judging from members on the forum, there are different opinions on the next gen iPhone screen size.
    If you don't want a larger screen, post why.

    Bigger screen only with minimal overall size difference.

    I'm fine the way it is. I use an S2 for a demo line at work and while I like it, it just isn't the same as having an iPhone. Call me crazy.

    So why, specifically, do you not want the next gen iPhones to have a larger screen?

    I find that it's a stretch to use the S2. and I have pretty big hands! I prefer the 3.5" screen because I don't have to stretch to reach things but it's also not so small that I have to watch where I press.

    I would be a mix between I want a bigger screen and I don't care. I would really love a notification led regardless of the screen size.

    I don't really mind but it can't be over 4.0". Nothing like the HTC Evo for example, that phone is incredibly uncomfortable to hold. I have small hands!

    Seeing that i'm 6'6" tall, I wouldn't mind a screen up to 4.5". But I know Apple won't do this for the fact that everyone isn't as freakish as me. :D

    Man i'd love a 4" screen. On a further note i'd also like a smaller size screen than the current offering as an option to. Something like the size of the last gen iPod Nano, always thought it would have made an awesome little phone

    Bigger screen for sure, but minimize size change at the same time (aka use up the useless white/black area). I can accept a 4" screen. This means a .5" diagonal length increase, translating to about .25" wider maintaining the current aspect ratio. I'd say there's already about a quarter inch of space between the edge of the screen to the edge of the phone if accounting for both sides. So the additional width will really boil down to how thin they can make the edges. Theoretically an edgeless phone should require almost no size increase to achieve a .5" bigger screen.

    Oh, and goes without saying, thinner than iPhone 4. Even if it's by 1mm it's good enough for me. But definately needs to be thinner.

    4" max. To me, that would be the perfect size. Toshiba's 1280x720 panel would be perfect.

    Yeah, while i don't think it'd work with a full blown version of IOS if you cut it down it would be great if you needed/wanted something smaller.

    These poll results are exactly why the new iPhone will be bigger than 3.5".

    3.7 or 4" but no bigger. It would be nice to have a larger screen to work with when I don't have my iPad with me. I use my phone as a laptop replacement, when I'm out and about.
