I don't care one bit about 4G, give me a 4" screen, 3G is fast enough, a 4" screen would make everything you do on the phone better.
I hope Apple looks at this very carefully, and makes the change, 3.5" was perfect in 07 when there were no games, GPS, and a half million other apps and things like Facetime..

If you want a bigger screen for gaming, either get an iPad or wait until the iPad mini comes out later this summer (Ooops... another rumor going around and a strong one at that)... The size of the current phone to me is just fime. I've looked at some of the bigger screen Androids and they don't add enough to rock my world. IMHO, the current phone size is just fine...

Why would you want a device with a 4.65 inch screen yes playing games are great because of the added realestate but in every day use our sucks I've owned a galaxy nexus and my hands are anything but small that phone is just to big. After going to a galaxy s2 I must say 4 to 4.3 inch phone is about the perfect size you want something bigger get a tablet.I just hope Apple agrees on that they could make the screen that size with very little increase in size

I, too, had a Galaxy Nexus and felt that the screen was way too large, especially if you keep your phone in your front pocket. While I don't wear tight pants, I was always afraid I was going to snap my phone in half if I bent my leg the wrong way. Personally, I think a 4" screen is the sweet spot.

I feel you that size phone is noticeable even though it's thin I could always feel it I'm my pocket when bending etc. I've also dropped it a few times trying to use it with one hand both times I was trying to reach the top to pull down the notification bar. something that's never happened until then . I really don't think Apple knows how many people go to other platforms simply because they can't work with a phone that only has a 3.5 inch display I would leave Android quickly if I could get an iPhone with a 4 inch screen

A 4.6" screen is unnecessary, but a 4" would be a welcome bump in real estate give how much more we do with our iPhones compared to the 1st model. Its easy to say get an iPad but not everyone can afford or wants one so a slight bump in screen will allow them to carry on with that for say another 5 years and it will of course "be magical" (sarcasm) but they also need to increase the battery life given LTE and Siri and all of the other extra's the phone is doing these days.
I can say I don't see me getting the 6th gen iPhone if the only bump is LTE, my iP4S is adequate until they see the light.

Agree. We'd put the over/under at 4.0", and we'd take the under, thank you very much.
The real reason to increase screen size wouldn't be to make it bigger for big's sake.
It would be to make better use of the existing front panel size by bringing the edges of the
visible screen flush with the edges of the enclosure itself. (Or near flush.)
