smoke and mirrors
I'm willing to bet at this point that all the talk of the same screen size and other talk is all smoke and mirrors talk sent by Apple to keep us off the mark. Think about it isn't it easier to send false info about your product, I still believe although I can be wrong that we will get at least a 4 inch screen with the next iPhone. Everyone wants to know what it's capabilities will be including their competitors

4.6 inches is out for sure but I believe a 4 inch screen is definetly in the cards especially now with the iPad running a lower resolution retina. my reason is soon all apps will be retina quality and the resolution game will be equal across both platforms so slightly increasing the phones screen size won't induce fragmentation

At the moment I am using the Android OS but upgrading to the new iPhone as soon as Verizon gets it. As far as the size of the phone goes I think it will depend on the size of components on the inside. Radio size, Camera, Sound system All the different things that make up a phone. Why go bigger if there isn't a need. With all the extra features of the new phone though it will have to be bigger than the present Iphone 4s.
Just my opinion

I don't know, you might be lucky. Can you tell me the Mega Millions numbers to play this week?
At any rate the next phone means little to me unless the screen has a bump in size otherwise I will very likely wait it out.

I have no doubt of that, and confirms the lemmings mentality so many toss around. Apple has a cash register for a name. Whether that is good or bad is up to each persons individual opinion. Myself personally I expect to see improvement and innovation or else my money isn't going to be spent.
Yes someone else will take my place but that is ALSO true about the Android OS and other devices. Say what you want each OS has its positives and negatives and since I have used PalmOS, WebOS, iOS, PPC, Windows Phone, BlackBerry and Android I can say each is good and bad. Just depends on what you want.
The ecosystem is the biggest draw for Apple but its not enough push an upgrade unless the next phone simple blows me away. Catching up with LTE is simply NOT enough.
At any rate I hope for the next generation device to blow our doors off given the lack of a big innovation that Apple is well known for.

I don't care if they make the screen bigger or not. It doesn't matter. Nobody cares.
The only thing that matters is speed and battery power. iOS is laggy and the battery should be lasting for a couple of days already by now.
Come on now, it's 2012!

I agree, people do care if the screen gets an increase in size or not. Its a big deciding factor in whether or not I upgrade in the fall or wait another year.
Wanting a bigger screen has nothing to do with which OS you want, and wanting a 4" screen shouldn't mean you HAVE to go with Android or WP7 or something else. Apple can design an iPhone with minimal size change an achieve a 4" screen.
People will buy the next iPhone regardless of screen size, and some may not buy it if it doesn't go up in size. Yes others will take their spot but it is still a lost sale. LTE is not enough.

It doesn't really matter about how many customers they lose because the majority of people with iPhone are going to buy whatever comes out. But I can list more reasons why they wouldn't do it than why they would.
And why they shouldn't and why they should. But I'm not even going to help spread that rumor.

In every poll I've ever seen about 75% of people list a screen size bump as their biggest wish for the next iPhone. So you're wrong to say nobody cares, in fact it looks like a majority of people do care. To think people will keep buying iPhones forever if Apple stops improving them is the same trap Blackberry fell into and look where they are now.
Apple knows this, I'm sure as soon as they can find a way to make a 4" screen with the same 326+ ppi they will do so in regards to ios and app scaling..

Saved myself the trouble and got a Lumia 900. 4.3" screen, and a pretty cool phone. Definitely not an iPhone killer, but a killer device.
I still have my 4S, and I like that OS too. WP is better for connecting with people quickly with their awesome social integration.
iOS is better for having more fun with your phone (games, etc) and it takes better pictures.
Be interesting to see how iOS 6 stacks up against WP 8. Not a fan of Android at all.

So based on the latest leaks, rumors and hands on parts the screen could very well grow to nearly 4" in size. That would be nice and Apple doesn't "need" to keep up with other companies screen sizes but they also know theirs is getting long in the tooth and may not be the best way to deliver the best user experience. Wanting something an iPhone's screen to stay 3.5" is like saying you want to stay young forever, someday you have to grow up.
