Noticed a few things which I really don't understand.

1) Same people who said Apple wasn't going to create a larger 4" iPhone.
2) Complain and whine when Apple announced the iPhone 5.
3) Still bought the iPhone 5.
4) Think Apple makes iPhones based on their personal (small) hand size.
5) Think Apple actually cares about their personal (small) hand size.
6) Considers 4.7" iPhone a phablet, tells people to use a 7.9" iPad mini.
7) Tells everyone that 4.7 = 7.9 (yes, they both have 7).
8) Never used a HTC One, Moto X, Nexus 5, etc.
9) Assumes people who want bigger iPhones can't see.
10) Thinks looking at a 3.5" screen can see more stuff than a 4.7" screen.

11) Thinks out of any company, Apple can't create an iPhone 6 with a new amazing design, a larger and better display, still being able to use it with one hand, without making it 2x thicker, wider, and longer in every dimension.

so just to be clear, this is a thread complaining about people who are complaining about a hypothetical device to be released in 6+ months?

(and yes, I'm aware that someone is going to say that my post is complaining about said thread...)

the fact is that some people will reflexively approve of anything apple is rumored to be doing, some will reflexively oppose, and many will wait and see. The specific issue here may be iphone size, but it's exactly the same with any proposed revision, new product line, directional focus, etc. Welcome to MacRumors.

those are some pretty bold assumptions, I've only seen a handful of them here.

#6 makes no sense because a phablet is a phone that can also be a tablet, suggesting that someone uses an iPad mini has nothing to do with phone screen size preference.

Yes.

I think that your poll choices reveal some bias.
Maybe a little.

The same people who claim to not want a bigger screen now are the same ones who said so before the Phone 5 came out. Threads like these are pointless, everyone will still make their purchase.

Honestly Im pretty partial to the smaller phones since I have smaller hands, so next time I renew my contract Ill most likely end up going with whichever phone I can hold comfortably.

pretty good chance apple will give two sizes just as they did with the ipad. So fear not 4" will likely stay. My guess at least

6) Considers 4.7" iPhone a phablet, tells people to use a 7.9" iPad mini.
Depends on use.
In portrait mode a mini/7" tablets can be used standing held with two hands and operated by two thumbs. Any larger you need to have one hand free to cover the screen which reduces touch control. ie full size iPad harder to use standing.

go smaller in portrait and you need two hands to operate but only one can hold, so harder to use well to you get down below 4.5".

If Apple are to go well above 4 then to me they need to change iOS to be more Landscape mode on those devices.

The Moto-X has a 4.7" screen and is nearly the same size as the iPhone 5.

It's not 2010 and there is no reason for apple to resort to a massive body to support larger screen.

If Motorola can do it, so can Apple.
