    Who can fit a massive phone like that in their pocket anyway?!

    I LOVE the 3.5 inch screen I have. 4 inch looks okay, but...

    What do you think?

    Possible - for people who still want a pager.
    Good idea, seriously!

    I love my iPod Nano. Great gym companion. I only wish it could make calls. Or receive email at least. :( Sent from my iPad.

    I get what your saying. My scared as hell the damn thing won't fit in my pockets and that one hand use is going to go die in a hole. I have some pants that are so bad that my iPhone 4 falls out when I run or sit. But then I play a game and can't see what I'm doing and want a bigger screen. Their are pros and cons. But I'm sure apple will still sell the 4 inch screen in some way.

    its all because apple wants to get more new users from other platforms such as android to switch rather than satisfying the wants of its current customers. in my opinion its annoying, but i mean i get where they're coming from. 4.0 is the perfect size for me.

    I have difficulty reading on the 3.5" screen. I don't want a phablet, but I need a bigger screen to reduce eye strain. 4.5" would be ideal, but 4.7" is fine and, if done properly, doesn't have to be a gigantic phone.

    Just get the iwatch! It about 1.8" for the premium model and 1.5" for the regular model. I don't think it can make phone calls just yet however.

    I for one can't wait. Tired of this miniature outdated screen.

    I think a 4.7" and a 5.5" will be welcome, people want the choice. But i also think that Apple should keep a 4" iPhone around for those that don't want a larger phone. That way they will be able to cater to everyone :D

    Personally i'm looking forward to a bigger screen iPhone, as to whether i will get a 4.7" or 5.5" well i will wait and see what the big :apple: announce and then take it from there.

    I want a bigger iPhone yes but I'm not praising to the heavens about size. That's not on my priorities.

    My priority is battery life. I'm sitting by the wall right now.

    The iPhone 6 is on the way and it IS bigger, that is a fact. If the OP wants to stay in a smaller iPhone, I suggest you keep the 4 and take care of it. Small screen phones are no longer in demand by the majority. Apple is really just catching up!

    Because bigger screen is better... like seriously. After I got used to 5" phone it's incredibly hard to go back to 4" because it's WAY too small.

    I'm a current customer. Ive had every iPhone. My biggest want is a bigger screen so Apple is satisfying the wants of many of its current customers.

    Because the iPhone 6 won't be massive.

    It will most likely be as tall as a Nexus 5, as wide as a Moto X, and thinner than just about any phone on the market right now. It will be easy to use with one hand and fit in just about every pocket.

    IMO 'massive' phones are phablets.

    I can fit the iPad mini in my pockets :] Nothing bigger than that though. I welcome the 5.5" iPhone 6 :D

    My Iphone5 just barely fits into fuelbelt's 'bento box' for bike top frame tubes. With a bigger screen this will no longer be the case. I slip my phone in there along w/ keys and/or garage door opener whenever I'm bike commuting and the size increase definitely poses an issue.
