    Simple choice really. If these were your choices for the next iPhone, which one would you get? Or do you prefer that Apple offer some other model not described above?

    Neither. I want an unlocked phone with no contract. And I want it to be no bigger than a 4S with a 3.5 to 4.5" screen or whatever will fit in, I don't really care.

    Contracts are not an issue as long as the carrier is top notch. I will never buy off contract, and pay a whopping amount for it. $200 is much better than $650 any day of the week, and in two years I'm off contract anyway. I don't buy smartphones every year like some do that get bored easily.

    Also want either the 4 inch screen or would settle for the 3.5 inch screen with a solid body of the 4S. If it goes wider without being in the same size of the 5 than I look elsewhere.

    10 MP camera with a better Sensor over a 12/14 MP screen with a subpar or average sensor. It's the sensor, not the MP size that really matters.

    A better antenna would also be welcomed

    I don't want a contract either. I have Verizon and plan on keeping my unlimited data for $9.99/month. I never want to lose this.

    Why would I BUY an iPhone 4 for 99 bucks on contract when its free on contract already ?

    I think the 4'' was not a reference to model but rather screen size.

    I would probably go for the entry or middle level one. But like others I don't want a contract, not a big one anyway. Once my current contract is up I will revert to a SIM only contract. I'm happy to pay the full price of the handset from Apple SIM free.

    I think it's meant to be an indication of the on-contract price, rather than proclaiming "you must get this on contract". I wouldn't sign another contract either, when my current company's speeds have plummeted since I joined (and I have eight months to go).

    Of the available models, I'd get the 4.5" one. However, I'd also need to compare it with whatever Android devices are available at the time.

    None, I don't "do" phone contracts. Cheaper to pay the full price up front.

    The poll options are all screwed up...

    4.5'' display
    Revamped iOS 7

    Given the choices I would choose the middle $200 phone.

    i do not like too big size of screen, 4' is enough, and the appearance hope it will have some change.:p

    iPhone 6 for me. They all would do quite well though.

    iPhone "Plus". I'm content with my iPhone 5. Came from a 4S. I'd only switch if they came out with a bigger screen plus huge spec boosts.

    I would really prefer a bit larger screen, so iPhone+ it is.
