    Quite simply : how are you getting along with the elongated screen?

    It's beautiful, and the new aspect ratio seems better in hindsight.

    Takes a little getting used to, but overall it is nice
    I would prefer the smaller screen, but the longer screen isn't too much of a reach

    Took a few hours...after that, you won't want a shorter screen.

    My finger keeps hitting the wrong button! I get my mother in law instead of my cute secretary!

    No issues with the new size. It works and serves its purpose.

    Really pleased. No change in how I used the phone and it actually feels more comfortable. Just wish Slingbox would update their app to make use of the new screen real estate.

    I like the new aspect ratio for viewing multi-media.

    The taller screen was my biggest concern as well before I bought mine, but after I had it, I couldn't go back to my iPhone 4 because the screen just looks so tiny. It's wonderful and you'll love it!

    Two notes:

    1 - Lots of people will say they are great, a few might not. If it was a big issue, you would be seeing lots of posts here. As to how you will react, who knows?

    2 - Since most stuff here is either a question or complaint, it would make more sense to include your question the TITLE - makes life for everyone easier.

    Feels natural within a day. Don't miss the smaller screen, the added room for icons, and using the phone in general is nice.

    Just waiting on a few apps to update to support the new screen size though.

    This is the largest I could go / tolerate for a mobile phone.

    I wish it's okay to kick butts of people with gigantic phablets on their face. LOL

    It's awesome, especially in landscape.

    My prediction is that they will go bigger again sometime in the future. Probably not the 5s or whatever the next iteration is called, but maybe the 6 or 7.

    The 4'' is great, but another half inch (adding a little width) would be perfect.

    Those saying that this is the max they can tolerate will change their minds once the new one is out, just like they did with the iphone 5. It's nonsense fear of change. The thumb argument is silly. The iphone puts a lot of icons near the top of the screen and you still need to either reposition your left hand to get to them, or use your right hand.

    I will not buy a 4.5" iPhone or any mobile phones for that matter - ever, never, if and when an i4.5" or iLarger happens, it's a sign or the time for me to experience a totally different platform ... I'll even eat my pride and take any compelling less than 4.5" Windows phone or ... *gasp* in the market.

    Actually, am scouting for an alternative now. :p

    Had the Razr Maxx with the 4.3 inch screen. Phone was too big and bulky. Only adavantage is you could use it for a flotation device.

    I love it, and I love the weight of the phone. I was preparing my 4s for sale a while ago and it felt sooo heavy now, LOL. I think the screen size is perfect. I was at a concert last night and everyone had their phones out - couldn't believe how huge some of them were. No thanks!

    No thanks, mark my words, am not an iSheep. iAi is my name, lol.


    I know. 4.3 is too big already.

    The non-sense obsession to tacky gigantic mobile device must stop! Yikes. Woz, SHUT UP! :D
