    If a 4 inch screen is hurting your eyes you need them testing because that isn't normal. If you want a bigger screen then move to android, apple wont be going any bigger any time soon i bet, they seem to like one hand usability and battery life.

    4.3" is the best size for a smartphone. Having so many different phones the past several years, all with different screen sizes, 4.3" is the sweet spot.

    The new Android's @ 4.8" are too big for one handed operation, and I had the Nexus-S two years ago @ 4" and that was too small, could easily handle more in one hand.

    I had the EVO 4G and Galaxy S2 @ 4.3", and man, that was spot on perfect, easily one hand operation 100% of the time.

    I bet the iPhone6 in 2014 will be 4.3", which will look small compared to all Android phones that year being 5".

    Fortunately, there are many alternative options are available to consumers, whom desire a larger device, such as yourself. Unfortunately, Apple's ears may be deaf to a larger screen for some time to come.

    I am quite content with the current iP5. Perhaps, I may change my attitude towards a larger screen, at some point in time.

    Actually rumor has it that the next iPhone will be the iPhone Mini. A 2 inch screen you can hang around your neck or wear on your wrist. Coming soon at an Apple store near you..... :cool:

    I'd also like to see one. A 4.3" would be my preference but at some point down the like I really do think we will either see two iPhone models introduced at once or the upgrade cycle reduced to six months.

    I love the screen size! I look at the Galaxy and I think that is too big. I think the 5 is perfect, bigger than the 4 but not too big that it makes the phone bulky. There is no way to have a big screen without making a bigger phone.

    What i dont get is why does Apple waste so much space on the top and bottom bezels when they can utilize them to get 4" display while keeping the iPhone4 form factor?

    People said the same about the 3.5 screen and look now the iphone 5 was born... The galaxy note 2 is out with a 5.5 screen lets see what apple do now... of course get a bigger screen in the next iphone.

    I agree. I believe they'll shrink the wasted space for future iterations of the iPhone, starting with the 6 in 2014 (as they'll most likely retain the same design for the 5S next year as they always do with S-type updates).

    EVERY SINGLE PERSON who says that android screens are too big are full of it. Let apple release a 5 inch iPhone.....ALL OF YOU will be lining up doing upgrade swaps and doing all kinds of things to get the NEW IPHONE 6XL....Lol

    FALSE.

    Truth-be-told... I like the iPhone 5 screen size but was perfectly content with the size of the 4s. Any bigger than what it is now and that's just too big. I don't need a TV in my pocket, I've got one of those hanging on the wall.

    I also agree that a 4.3 inch screen would have been perfect.

    But I also agree that if Apple makes a 5 inch screen, I'd buy it...

    Unless Apple manages to completely eliminate the bezel on the iPhone, anything bigger than 4" is just stupid. If they make the display any taller it'll be too hard to reach. If they make the device actually wider, it'll be too hard to reach. I don't have small hands either, I'm 6'2".
