    Not me. I'm a small person and to be honest when I held my friends Note 2 up to my ear pretending to make a call I looked like I was talking on a tablet also I like to use my iP5 one-handed and could never do that with a larger iPhone......but this is just my opinion and maybe the guys might view it all differently

    I don't think so, I like the feel and size of the iPhone 5, fits great in my hand without being to big.

    Yep sure do. Nothing wrong with desiring more options from a too notch company. It would be wise on their part as well as good for business. They should offer multiple screen sizes. I personally dislike the small size of my iPhone 5. Everything else about the phone I love though. If apple decides to "smarten up" and offer more options regarding screen size then it will be better for everyone. I held my friends Galaxy Note 2 in the hand the other day and it felt amazing in my large hands. I shook my head and thought to myself, "When is Apple going to get it"?
    Offer us a phone with a 5+ inch display and I'm sold. Articles like this definite give me hope.

    i am happy with the screen size of the 5, but suppose its just a personal preference the trend towards getting bigger and bigger with other phones to me is crazy but I suppose it all depends what you use your phone for.

    I have nothing against a slightly bigger phone. I do believe the Note 2 is too big however. It's like carrying around a phone book.

    Not me, iPhone 5 is the perfect size. Anything bigger would be like holding a tablet to your ear.

    If it were the size of the Note II, I'd avoid it like the plague...I already consider the Galaxy S phones a bit too big, but the Note II is just silly (for me anyways).

    If they increased the size like the Galaxy S4, I'd probably consider it just because it's the newest model...but I don't prefer it. The size would certainly cause me to heavily consider holding onto the iPhone 5 for another year, but to be honest, if they go to that new sizing, what choice will one have anymore? You'll pretty much have to acclimate to that new style because they won't regress back afterwards...it'll suck but oh well, that's the way i felt about manual transmissions too, these days nothing comes with a manual tranny anymore new, you just have to evolve i guess.

    Slightly bigger, but under 5 inches please. I think anywhere between 4.3 and 4.7 is comfortable.

    I’d have to agree with Sean... if it’s all they offer, what choice do I have? I’d definitely prefer something under 4.5". No need to a huge screen on a phone for any reason.

    But with that said, I don’t really see any need to go bigger than the current iPhone 5 screen.

    Even though I've made my opinions known in the past that I wouldn't mind having a 4.3 in iPhone, I can easily carry on without it. The size of the iPhone 5 is great for *me*, but like Sean stated, if they increase the size, I'll adjust to it if I decide to buy it. No biggie.

    At the end of the day, the OS and Ecosystem is what makes use of the device a pleasure. I currently use a 4s which by today´s standards is tiny. But I wouldn´t change it for anything other than the 5. iOS is it. (that should be an Ad). iOS is it.

    4.3" to 4.5" is the max for me. I have zero interest in a phone the size of a Note 2

    Default Re: Would you consider a bigger iPhone?

    I have been pretty vocal about my desire for a larger screened iPhone. To the annoyance of many I assume But honestly, after messing with the S4, I have changed my stance. I love the size of my 5. Perhaps a little more width would be nice, but I'm content.

    With that said, I'd be curious to see what they do in the future. It seems they are adding more gestures with iOS 7. Perhaps dismissal of the home button? Narrow bezel? Who knows but it'll be fun when it happens.

    I don't want the iPhone to be the size of the Note 2. But I could see it going to about 4.7 or 5 inches. It's highly likely that they will bump the screen up, but if it stayed I really wouldn't be that mad. I like the size of the iPhone 5. I hold my dads 4 and just cannot stand the size. And it's obviously thicker and heavier than the 5.

    I'm also a petite person, so holding my 4S and navigating "one handed" is not too difficult. I can manage to just about reach the top left, if need be, in the screen with my thumb. Being able to navigate one handed is important to me using my device. NOW on the other hand, I wouldn't mind it if the iPhone went to a 4.3/4.5" screen either. I would manage to make do-my eyes aren't what they used to be. I have checked out my sons GS4 on a few occasions since he got it & it's a really nice device (I have considered one) - the main thing that bothers me about it is I would never be able to navigate one handed because for my tiny hands its too big and awkward to try & "balance" & navigate.

    Seems as though the general consensus is maybe. I too have a 4s and find it rather small with a nice weight balance. In considering the i5, I made a mental note that a "heavier" case is definitely in the plans. There is a fine line between screen real estate and a phablet. I personally feel the Note 2 exceeds the limits of a "normal" daily device, yet a 4.5 to 5" screen appeals to me. I also have and use a 7" tablet and a 4.2" phone I use as a daily driver, so I *personally* would find something slightly larger a bit more appealing for my daily needs and desires. Once again, to each their own, but a diverse variety is always a good thing when trying to market to vast audience.

    Bigger sure, but mainly what I'd like is a little wider. the ip5 was taller yes, but that didnt fix my biggest gripe with it.

    I would either like a wider iphone or keys on the keyboard to be flush next to each other with no gaps. I think this would improve the typing experience on the iphone and would, at least to me, make it a more attractive product.

    Absolutely not. The iPhone is iconic for having a slim, small profile. Not some gargantuan near tablet sized screen. 4 inches is the limit for me. I don't want a huge phone--I like being able to operate my device comfortably with one hand. I would even prefer the 3.5 inch screen over the 4 inch display on the iPhone 5.
