I don't think the 5S is too large. It'll be my next iPhone most likely. But anything bigger looks unpractical if you ask me. Not to mention unnecessary if you, like me, use a phone predominantly as a communications device, browsing mobile news sites, tv guide, notes, banking etc. Those that use it as their personal entertainment center might disagree.
I suppose it's mostly teens that keep clamoring for larger screens. Kind of like the speaker that can't go loud enough
It sure would be nice though, I **love** the iPhone 4 and 4S form. I wish iPhones were upgradable like (some) computers.
I think there is a market for the larger phablet sized phones for folks who only want to carry around one device; I get that, but it's not for me.
Hmm...yes, I'd say you're in the minority there. 4 inches is pretty small by today's standards.
The problem is not solved. Does the 4s have the latest capabilities? No.
He's not saying 4" screens are too big. He is saying the iPhone 5 is too big.
And it is. iPhones are way too big because of their enormous bezels.
No flagship of any manufacturer has a small screen or is a small phone. Small phones never have the latest capabilities. They're all budget phones, especially if you go < 4"
Not so sure about that. Did they updats the 4 or 4S when the introduced the 5 or 5S?
It's really interesting how the Macbooks haven't changed appearances in years and years, but Apple just updates things internally every year. I wonder if that will ever become the norm for phones and tablets. Every year I wonder how they can possibly make the phone any thinner than it already is. Seriously if the iPhone gets any thinner I'm going to feel like I could just snap it in half.
So Apple branded feature phone?Want a phone just to call with and see SMS/Text. But still the ability to read emails when necessary.
I love my iPhone 5s but after I put it in my protective case it just is large.
Would think a 50-75% sized iPhone and an iWatch would suit me much better.
Use my computer or iPad for serious surfing and reading emails just after a small unite to communicate with.
But I suppose we are very few who wants that so nothing for Apple to shank about.
Just a thought!
We're in the minority but I wouldn't say you're the only one. I still prefer the older 3.5" form factor and if Apple were to release an iPhone Mini I'd get one even if it had year-old specs (e.g. 5s).
Yes, but at the time of release the 4/4s was the flagship phone. They keep growing in size. At what point will it stop? I see no point in the 4.7" size that is coming out. Offer the 5.5" for the "bigger is better" crowd and keep the high end small phone for those of us who want the functions without the bulk.
