Apple isn't going with a bigger screen which wouldn't be "retina" anymore. Why the heck would you want a bigger iphone with a worse quality screen? If you want an oversized phone, get an android? At least those are real.

It's my understanding that Apple is kind of stuck having to double resolution in order for its apps to scale. http://www.imore.com/2011/01/19/prob...etina-display/
I'm not sure why this is hard to understand. A larger screen at the same resolution equals a poorer screen. If this is what apple has in mind, then that will be disappointing.

Clearly, it wouldn't be higher resolution. LG said to be in talks with Apple for 4-inch iPhone and 7.35-inch iPad mini displays | 9to5Mac | Apple Intelligence That was one of them grain of salt rumors anyways.
Android isn't iOS. There's a reason Apple had to double the resolution from iphone 3gs to iphone 4. And from ipad 2 to ipad 3.
That said, a new 4" iphone with the same resolution might appeal to you, but it would have less dpi as well and not really be "retina" anymore as they defined it. However they could claim to be "retina" because the new ipad would have similar dpi.

The rumored 4" screen is said to have even higher resolution than the 4 and 4s, so it would look even better.
A 1280x720 4" screen would be amazing looking.

In addition, the higher resolutions are not clean multiples of the current iPhone resolution, meaning that developers would have to offer newly-scaled content to fit the new size, with Apple having to use a non-ideal automatic scaling to allow current content to display on the new device. In the transition to the current Retina displays, Apple doubled the screen's resolution in both the vertical and horizontal directions, allowing lower-resolution apps to be easily scaled up using pixel doubling techniques.
You're bent on wanting a larger screen. I get that. But you cannot ignore all the discussion relating to why Apple had to [B]double [/B ]the resolution in the past and perhaps for the upcoming ipad because of apps.
