    But it'd run iOS :) besides, all smartphones look the same nowadays, you know, with a display on the front, some hardware buttons and a sim tray on the side..it's all about the OS IMO

    Agreed, my ideal size would be 4.5"

    That is freakishly too big, I dont think that is a good looking phone at all.

    The person who created these images said this phone would use a clickable screen, to act as the home-button. Personally, I think that's a terrible idea. Think Blackberry Storm :eek:

    Actually looks kinda nice! One of the better renders I've seen. Kind of a mix between an iPad, other smartphones, and the iPhone.

    I completely agree with you, and the BB storm for me was a fail. :D

    My carpal tunnel-crippled thumb says "no thanks" to bigger screens. ;)

    Honestly, this (and the OS) looks better than anything we can expect from Apple in a larger phone:

    I hate threads like this because I know the next iPhone will never look anything like the epic mockups we see :(

    I don't like the idea of a clickable screen, but I would love a phone that looked like that.

    You never know. This one looks believable.

    Screen is way to big! Looks beautiful but needs to be kept to a 4 inch or less screen size. Preferably 3.5 inch. All these large screens look ridiculous, and definitely do not follow Apples standards for ease of use.

    Im buying that the day it becomes available. Not waiting for Apple to make a larger iphone. Didnt buy into the iPhone 4S-S, either. Or the iPhone 4S-S2 that will more than likely be next with the "amazing" camera and more drive space.

    HTC and Blackberry (sheesh) have kinda stolen Apples "larger aluminum iPhone" look. That HTC is REALLLY nice looking. Especially, If there is a quality feel to the aluminum design.

    The HTC size wise and shape, is EXACTLY what I want in a phone, I really like my friends HTC 1X, and NO, I dont think its too big to put in my back pants pocket, because I dont put my phones in my back pants pocket (Im not a 14 year old girl).

    Don't you think that Sir Jony Ive has a little more up his sleeve than shrinking down an iPad Mini?

    Don't like the look of those mockups. They look too big. HTC got it right for those who want larger screens with their upcoming HTC One. It's the only phone that rivals Apple in build quality.

    Imagine if this was what the iPhone 5 was? It already looks similar.

    Alas... fantasies.

    Beautiful? Hardly. Looks like an HTC. If I wanted an HTC, I'd go buy one. Don't know what's up with people's obsession with a bigger iPhone. If they do make one with a bigger screen, people will complain it's too big or not big enough. Phones should not be nearing small tablet sizes. Give it a rest. :rolleyes:
