    Just curious. If the future iPhone offered a larger size with a 5.3" screen and had a digitizer pen that worked great for certain apps, would you consider it?

    The pen is irrelevant to me. The size would be a deal breaker. 4"-ish works well for me. Over 5" is too big.

    Already did. Just curious if others would if it were an Apple product.

    A 5.3" device is going to be way too big for one handed use no matter what. Even the 4.3" Android devices are too large for me to use one handed. This is an important consideration for me.

    If Apple made the iPhone with a 42" screen, and it came with a remote, would you use it as a TV?:confused:

    No, a 5.3" screen is too big to carry around in my opinion.

    I am actually shocked at the number of people that say they would buy a 5"+ iPhone :eek:

    No, that size screen is too big, even 4" screens are too big for me. In my opinion 5.3" is a useless size since it's too big to easily fit in your pocket, and it's too small to have the advantages of an iPad size screen.

    Well..it fits in my pockets front and back with no problem whatsoever, but I don't wear Skinny Jeans.
    And for me, it does not take the place of our iPad. I don't think it was meant to do that. It's just a device with a much bigger screen making ti a bit easier to browse, watch videos, check emails, and get some basic things done when on the go.

    On the go use to me would mean the ability to use the device single handedly, which a 5.3" screened device couldn't achieve.

    Yes, I'd love it. I still might take a 5.3" Android device instead though. It'd be like the Note 2 or something by that time

    I don't like small screens

    No, I like the form factor the way it is. Edge-to-edge screen will be good though.

    i'd consider it, depends how much of the device is actually screen (small bezel and chin please) and how narrow they make it.

    IMO 4.7" is the biggest I can handle with 1 hand.

    Anything below 4.3" is small.

    A digitizer pen is not something Apple wants you to use with a telephone.

    I wouldn't buy it if I had options but I would if it was the only iPhone offered. I am that loyal to the phone, not to apple, to the phone.

    I'm actually not a huge fan of apple the company but I do like their phone.

    may as well buy an iPad if you want that size screen. It would be cheaper to buy an iPad lol. iPhone is about $800 current screen. iPad is much cheaper lol

    ----------

    so what you are saying is that you don't like the phone?
