    Default 4.8" screen for the next iPhone?? *rumor*

    So looks like another *analyst* claiming the next iPhone will have a larger screen, this time settling on 4.8" Will be interesting if they actually do settle on this size how people take it who claimed that is too large. iPhone 6 to Feature 4.8-Inch Screen, Analyst Says | TechnoBuffalo

    Well it will certainly be interesting to see what the screen size changes to because I'm sure something will be probably be done size wise.

    I think 4.8" would be nice, as long as it isn't too heavy or clunky. I have enough things weighing down my bags.

    My only concern is one hand usability. Don't get me wrong, a bigger screen size would be great, BUT I love the fact that I can use my iPhone 5 with one hand.

    OMG, no... 4.8" is way too big. If it’s true, I’ll be rocking my 5S for a long time. Gladly.

    I'm sure Apple is considering a larger screen. 4.8" seems maybe a bit larger than what I'd like. We shall see.

    Agree, think if they go that big, probably stick with my 5 or 5s.

    I think a 4.3" or a 4.6" screen would be what Apple will go with.

    I think they should release 2 phones...the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Pro with the larger screen. Give people a choice.

    For me it really depends on how they make the screen larger. If they expand the screen (.8) on the same size device that would be perfect, but making the iphone "bigger" to accomadate screen size...well I'm not sure about that. I would probably still buy it though.....SMILE

    I'm willing to bet they will add even more gestures to make support one hand usability.

    I would think they would offer two screen sizes.

    Well they will have 2 sizes. The 4" of the 5S and the new "larger screen" although 4.8 can easily fit in pockets unless you wear skinny jeans.

    I don't think they will have two sizes. Just my IMO.

    I can't wait to see a bigger screen on the iPhone. I can barely see anything on my screen. It sucks to have such a powerful phone but can't give it the full usage as on my other phones.

    Yeah, they can let Samsung have the plastic. I prefer toughened aluminum or some other equally durable metal. I wouldn't mind Kevlar, that'd be neat, but that stuff they used for the shell of the iPhone 5c? Maybe in black but, otherwise, they can really just leave that plastic alone, IMO.

    A bigger screen may keep me from going back to Android. I will add though, I had the Note 2. Nice phone, but it was too big at times. And people would give you strange looks, when on a call. 😀

    I don't mind the actual screen getting bigger...I just don't want the phone to grow that much. Wonder how much the hardware will grow to compensate ?

    Well if they release a larger phone they are going to have at least 2 sizes. I mean they already have 2 sizes of phones 3.5" and 4"

    Totally agree. Bought my 5s off contract on a whim. I figure the next one will be the larger size I've been hoping for. For me a larger phone would probably allow me to not rely on my iPad for streaming video and reading. The larger phone would be an "all in one" device, I would probably transition out of the iPad. Save some money each year for sure.
