    Do you think the future gen iPhone will eventually keep about the same size (maybe a bit wider) and just make the screen larger covering mor of the black bezel. Haven't thought about where the homebutton goes but ear piece could e shifted up. If the screen was just a bit bigger I feel like that wouldnake a HUGE difference.

    I don't see a bigger screen coming any time soon. Mainly due to a power issue. The battery life is already one of the biggest complaints about the iPhone and arguably the iPhone's biggest downfall. With a bigger screen the battery is going to die even faster than it already does.

    I agree but a bigger screen would be nice.

    It can't happen until we get resolution independence, and even then it won't happen with a screen that is a different aspect ratio.

    I also don't see a bigger screen coming. The 2 biggest drawbacks are the increased strain on the battery, and app compatibility.

    Nope, not unless the human population's hand get collectively significantly larger.
