    I voted for 4.9 - 5.1".

    I had the 6 and it was a bit small and now I have the 6 Plus which is a little too big :)
    A 5" iPhone would be the sweet spot for me.

    Well... I have owned 4" iPhone, 4,7" iPhone and 5" HTC One m8 in between... I would say 4,7" is pretty optimal.

    4" is great for one hand usability and fitting in your pocket. HTC One m8 with 5" display was great for media but I felt it was slightly too massive. iPhone 6 with 4,7" display hit the sweet spot for usability and screen size. Thought I would like slightly thinner bezels for even better usability.

    iPhone 6 is the perfect size for my needs. Was not sure after coming from the 5, but have come to appreciate the size of the 6.

    4.7 -5.5. Only 5.5 if it's lg however because they know how to do it right.

    3.8"-4.0" for me because the iPhone 5 is perfect for my use. I can use it with one hand while walking around campus and pocket it easily when I need to. If Apple could slim down the bezels I might be able to do a bigger screen, but bigger physical dimensions are a struggle for me.

    iPhone 4 size, eventually also iPhone 5. Everything else is for Hulks or people wearing XXXL pants with Dinosaur-sized pockets.

    I have a 6+, but I voted 4.7. I tolerate the extra size/heft to get a full HD screen.

    If the 6S is full HD, that's probably going to be my next phone.

    I think 4.7" should be good but I won't know until I carry one for a while.

    You forgot a choice in the poll:

    * depends on the user

    4 inch for me. Would jump at a 5S case with an A8/A9 in it. Otherwise I'm off to Sony.

    4" is pretty good for me. Had a 4.5" for a year, but don't miss it.
