    If we get a 4.7" screen, will the content actually be larger then what is currently on the 5/5s screen or just more of it?
    I'm hoping for larger ;)

    If we get the 5.5" screen, i would assume we would get more content and larger content to fill that area.......I tried the LG G3 to test out the 5.5" screen they have and man what an incredible difference in viewing experience
    Hoping once again if we get the 5.5" it'll be comparable

    The content will be the same size as on the iPhone 5s.
    That's the reason why you want to have a bigger display - you want to see more content.

    You're contradicting yourself. If it's the same size you won't see more content. To answer the original question...we'll find out next Tuesday.

    Speak for yourself. I'm fine with the amount of content I can view at once, I want it larger.

    What?? If the content has the same physical size as on a 4'' display, you get more content on a 4.7''.

    Then you clearly are in the minority.

    No. Content will stay the same size, so instead you'll be seeing MORE.

    Easy math. If you have a 4 inch screen at 326DPI and a 4.7 inch at the same DPI, the 4.7 inch would have more screen estate.

    Bigger screen but same DPI = FAIL will have to be higher resolution or there's little point as quality will be worse.

    You are a little confused here. The bigger screen will have a higher resolution in order to maintain the same DPI.
