With more parts leaking, I thought it would be cool to get a better idea to see how people's opinions have changed, if at all. Will you be going for the 4.7" iPhone 6 or the larger 5.5" model if you plan on upgrading?

4.7 for now, but will not know till I hold both phones. As long as the specs are pretty much the same for both phones I will probably buy the 4.7

The more I see of the 5.5" the more I like it. Like the poster above me, I will need to hold both phones and play with them for a while to get a good feel, but as of right now, I'm planning on 5.5".

For the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5, I was one of those people who preordered and had it delivered on release day.

For the first time I'm not going to preorder, I'm going to wait a few weeks after release, let the dust settle, and physically hold the phones in my hand at the apple store then choose. I have no clue which would be better / more comfortable in my hands. Who knows...


There should be an option for "undecided"

I am likely to upgrade my iPhone 5 to an iPhone 6. Not sure whether I'll go for the 4.7" or 5.5" model yet. 4.7" seems like the ideal model: the device won't be too big, but it will have a generally big screen.

On the other hand, if the 5.5" model isn't too big and its display comes to good use (e.g. instead of enlarging everything, another row of icons, more text, etc.) - than I will very well consider the 5.5" model.

So, getting drawn to the 4.7"-model, but also considering 5.5" --- undecided.

No idea. Depends on price, availability, physical size, feature set...

It's a bit pointless trying to decide without knowing, well, anything...

4.7, that is assuming the specs are the same else wise.

I'd only consider the 5.5" if its significantly upgraded over the 4.7" model. When I say that my example would be if the 4.7 used the current A7 processor while the 5.5" uses a new A8 or something to that effect.

Even then I'd have to handle the 5.5" but I feel that would be too big for me to use daily.

the mockups of the 5.5" look humongous and ugly, really dont care how it looks going to have to just see how it is in the hands

There won't be a 5.5 inch model.

Apple won't do it. It's a mute point.

They still need to milk the iPhone 5 parts (5c) along with the iPhone 5s parts.

99% sure I'll be getting the 5.5"

I'm ready for a big change, and .7" jump isn't much of an upgrade to my 5S imo.

I would expect the 5.5 to have minor bumps in everything to compensate for the larger screen.
