And list your ideal size?
I would be happy with 4". I think 3.7" is not enough to change, and 4.3" might be too large. 4" is the sweet spot.
I have the Sprint EVO 4g, rooted with a custom rom, this phone has a 4.3" size screen, I absolutely love this phone. Previous phones have been iPhone3G, and Nexus-One, this is hands down my fav of the three. But my Nexus-One had the 4" screen size, and that was pretty sweet, not too small, nor too large.
Any reason not to take part in these threads?
I doubt the form factor changes
After uses a Captivate, I think that 4" is the sweet spot. Although I wouldn't mind anything between 3.7 - 4.3".
I'd be ecstatic with 4.3"
But I would settle for 4.0"
If it remains 3.5" I will be extremely pissed
I m tuna say no but I think they might just have the screen close to the edge of the phone if they can.
Bigger screen means bigger device.
The only way to make screen bigger without changing size of device is to make screen longer, there's no room to make it wider only longer. By making screen longer but not wider will make it look out of proportion.
You shouldn't have included in the poll bigger device/bigger screen.
You're setting yourself up for failure. There is absolutely no reason to think it'll be a larger display.
Why would they release a 'retina' display talking about how cool it is only to up the screen size with the same resolution the next year?
I think you can't up the screen size unless you up the size of the device.
So the question is 'do you want a bigger device so that the screen can be larger?'
I've seen the future
And the Sweet Spot is 4.3"
I'm not talking about the device size changing. I'm talking about the ppi lowering with an increased screen size.
and that would suck.
Cell phones are following the size trend we've seen in watches... look for the iPhone5 to be the size of the Galaxy Tab, soon it will be sheik to have a giant cell phone stuck to your head
If you keep the device the same size there's no room to make it wider but there's room to make it longer.
By keeping the same width and making it longer it will look out of proportion.
Do you understand that?
Can't we just have a screen that does not require scrolling left and right
Just to read text even in horizontal position?
lol, the EVO is bad ass. I have my rooted with Myn's rom and is smoking fast, and good on battery life too. I like the iPhone 4 hardware, and build quality, but that 3.5" screen is way too small for the year 2011. If Apple made the iPhone 5 with a 4.3" screen, I would drop Android tomorrow, well first need to see the EVO-2, then decide
But that has nothing to do with my original point. I didn't talk about the device size having to grow. I focused on the ppi dropping and no longer being "retina." The other choice is to increase the resolution and piss off all of the developers.
How without making it longer?
These are pure words of wisdom!
I have to say, if the iPhone went to a 4.3 screen, I seriously doubt I would upgrade... and when I did get a new phone, I would likely look elsewhere for a smaller form factor. To me, it is a phone. I have an iPad for other things.
The device does have to get bigger, but that's immaterial to the concern of either resolution or ppi changing and its impact on marketing terms and iOS developers.
