    Rumours are that the iPhone 6 may be launched in two sizes: 4.7 and 5.7 inches. If this becomes true, which size would you most likely buy?

    As an extremely satisfied Note 3 owner, a 5.7 inch iOS device sounds wonderful.

    Would love a bigger size phone but my max preferred would be no more than 4.7 and 4.8.
    Personally don't think Apple will jump from 4 to 5+ screen size in one generation.

    They won't jump from 4 to 4.7 if the screen size does increase, it will be more like 4.3-4.5 inch

    4.7 is the only size that would work with the smallest impact on apps. If apple does change screen size I would bet 5 dollars that its a 4.7 inch.

    My ideal screen size would be 4.3-4.5. So if I had to choose, it would be 4.7 easily. 5.7 is disgustingly huge.

    Personally I feel like 4.7 is a tad too big. Somewhere between 4.3 and 4.7 would be a sweet spot.

    Been using an HTC One for the last 5 months, so 4.7" screen, I think it's a little clumsy and makes sacrifices in usability (especially one handed use) for the same of screen size... of course, who knows. The iOS interface might work better than Android / Sense at that form factor.

    One thing that a lot have overlooked is if Apple make a bigger iPhone then they are basically going to kill off any market the iPad mini has IMO. So a massive screen just won't happen.

    Using the current size, or slightly bigger with edge to edge screen could be good though.

    Current size is perfect for me, one handed simplicity ;)

    Would have to see and hold one first, before i make my mind up (that's what she said) ;)

    Maybe add to the poll, "Not sure, till i've held them first"? It would also depend on how they're designed, casing wise, as the 3GS felt better in the hand than a 4 or 5.

    5.7" cause the rumored 4.7" only has the 720p screen... I know it's a silly reason but I'd want the apparent flagship phone lol.

    I'd say I would have to see one first before deciding. Having said that, my gut instinct is that the current size works best for me. It's a compromise between usability and portability and right now I don't find myself wishing the phone or the screen was bigger.

    5.7" ???

    Very unlikely ... Let Samsung make that kind of monster

    4.7" could be the sweet spot for iPhone 6.
    I'd like it.

    Definitley dont want a bigger screen. I had a 4.7 screen with Android and didnt like the feel of bigger screen in my hand. If I need a bigger screen Id get a ipad mini for that niche. Its all personal preference thats why im keeping my iphone 5s for as long as technology allows me to

    5.7 would kill the iPad market, so 4.7 is the max the iPhone could be

    I'm happy with 4" if they widen the screen to fit 720p exactly then that would be better than offering a 4.7" display, & would still look tack sharp to with the screen size still being 4".

    I had a Galaxy S4 for 5 months got fed up with the size of it, felt like i had a slab of slate in my front pocket all of the time, whenever i got in the car it also felt like it was going to bend i don't wear skinny jeans.

    It's already been reported on a number of occasions now, where the screen had damaged while just being in the pocket on the S4.

    The size of the current iPhones is great for me, and i hope they don't end up going the same way as Samsung.

    IMO 4.3 is the sweetspot for size. Used to have an HTC EVO and sizewise, it was perfect.

    My 4S is too small (5s is on order). The galaxy S4 I used for a couple of months was slightly too big at 5 inches as one handed operation was difficult and cumbersome.

    I hate this forum sometimes. I brought rumors the other day and people bashed me. You do it and GREAT! WONDERFUL! EVERYONE VOTE NOW!!!

    Anyway, I voted for 5.7 but I think the norm will be 4.7. Where are you getting this information? A 4.7 will be nice!

    I don't think Apple is going to make two models, I think they're just gonna make one 5.0 inch iPhone...
