    I seriously doubt they're going to double the horizontal and vertical resolution of the current 4" display. I'd like to see 1080p on the next iPhone.

    My best guess about the screen size is 4.3-4.7 inches. From a usability standpoint I feel that this gives you the best compromise, especially if Apple can do something about their huge top and bottom bezel.

    My guess is 4.3 - 4.5.

    Personally, I'd rather not see anything larger than 4.5. If they decide to make anything larger, then at least offer a smaller screen option.

    I'm one of those who feel the iPhone 5 frame has been "perfect." I'm perfectly content with the size, and really don't care about a bigger screen.

    I'd like a 4" screen option still, preferably with the same tech specs as the larger screened model. I find the iPhone 5 form factor just right for usability and portability, quite happy with the current ppi rating.
