    Like the tittle states do you wish the iphone 6 had a slightly larger screen, say somewhere between 4.8" and 5.0"? This is my first iphone and i love it, but coming from a galaxy s4 i wish it had more screen real estate.

    I tried the iPhone 6 plus and its way too big for me since i have small hands, but i have large fat sausage fingers lol so i find it hard to type and navigate sometimes on the 6.

    Yes, the plus 5.5 is just a little too big and the 4.7 is too small. a 5 or 5.1 would have been perfect.

    No but I wish it had a higher resolution screen. I'm currently using the iPhone 6 Plus but my second phone is the 2014 Moto X. It's the same size as the iPhone 6 but with a 5.2" screen and 1080p. Hopefully Apple can figure out a way to shrink their bezels. The Moto X is the perfect size but I don't like android enough to switch over completely.

    No, I think 4.7" is the perfect size for the 6. If you made it any larger (5.0"-5.2"), it would be too close to the iPhone 6 Plus, making it an unattractive option (why go for an almost identical display and lose OIS?). It's the perfect size between the 4.0" 5S and the 5.5" 6 Plus.

    Those who want the latest hardware specifications won't feel alienated by a significantly larger display. Because of the 6's slim profile, it doesn't take up too much more space in a pocket than the 5S, despite its larger screen real estate.

    Where is the "****NO!" poll option?

    If anything I wish it had a smaller screen...

    Absolutely. Slightly less bezel and a 5" screen would have been perfect. I'd even say 4.9" would've been good. I have a little screen envy looking at the LG G3. 5.5 inch screen. Not a whole lot bigger in total size than the 6.

    I would love a **slightly** larger screen, but ONLY if the overall dimensions stay the same. I would have liked to see an edge-to-edge screen like the Motorola Moto X, maximizing the potential screen size while keeping external dimensions to a minimum. Apple would need to keep a small chin on the phone for the home/fingerprint button. But beyond that, lots of available space for more screen. And we all know the only thing more important than more screen is more cowbell. :)

    I'm someone who feels the screen on the 6 is a little too small, and that the Plus is a little too big.

    There's a whole lotta bezel on both the phones, and I feel like a phone taller than my Galaxy S3 shouldn't actually be .1" smaller. I feel like they could have gotten near a 5" screen on the same footprint on the 6. The Plus is way to much phone for a 5.5" screen.

    All that said, I like them both. Currently on my S3 like I mentioned above, but I keep going back and forth between 6 and 6 Plus. If the 6 was a little bigger OR the 6 Plus was a little smaller, we'd have a winner already.

    I think if it was at least 5" I would have gotten it instead of the 6+.

    No, I think 4.7 is a good choice for a phone.

    Yes but not until they can make the bezels smaller. TouchID has locked them into large bezels for the foreseeable future.

    5" i would have sprung for it over a + as well. I think 5" and 5.7" with smaller bezels is what Apple should have done.

    Agree so much with you.
    I definitely would like to see a better battery packed into the 6 as well!:cool:

    No the size is perfect. Not too big and not too small

    Waiting for the day when they get the size right. Then I can pull it behind my truck.

    I want everything on the screen in perfect life sized scale. And I don't care if I do have to use a ladder to reach a button on the screen. That's what truck beds are for.

    When I want to take a break, I'll do some FaceTime from the bed of my pickup truck, and it'll be like the person on the other end is right there with me.

    Then the 6+ should be upgraded to 5.7" and QHD display..

    I find 5.5 to be a really good size but iPhone has too much bezel and I went for the 4.7
    In the future in they'll get rid of the home button and reduce the overall size I'll be happy to buy an iPhone with a display bigger than 5''

    I like the form factor of the iPhone 6, it feels great in my hand. If Apple were somehow able to shrink the bezels and increase the screen size in the iPhone 6 package, I'd be all for it.

    Its not the home button area to me, its more of the top bezel. The 6+ isn't bad tho. Blackberry got it right. No home button, just swipe up.

    LOL. No. It's 4.7" for a reason - it fits the typically sized human hand well.

    Start looking at the iPhone as a whole, not as a Top Trumps competition between Samsung and Apple.

    No it shouldn't. Then everyone will complain about what a battery drain the device is. I'm glad Apple doesn't just throw high-end specs into it's devices and considers what it does to the battery life or performance of it's devices.

    This would be my ideal choice as well. Three phones: 4.0", 5.0", and 5.5" would have been a perfect lineup for Apple, IMO.

    Yea, I would love for Apple to fit something akin to a 5" screen in the same body as the iPhone 6. On my 2014 Moto X, the nav buttons effectively make the screen like 4.7-4.9" anyway.

    Alas, I guess that'll be the update for the 7 series: bigger screen in same overall size body.

    Held a Samsung S6 in my hand that had a 5.1 inch screen, and it was just right for me. Wish Apple would do same. 4.7 seems too small and 5.5 too big.
