    Default Do you want a bigger screen or a bigger phone?

    The foregone conclusion is that a bigger iPhone 6 means a bigger phone. However I have seen the rumors with pictures of the supposed iPhone 6 digitizer with a bigger screen by removing the bezel and making the screen slightly taller. The digitizer itself is still the same size as the 5s digitizer meaning the casing of the phone itself would remain the same size. While this may be a hoax the idea is interesting. Do people actually want a bigger screen? or do they want a bigger phone?

    The same sized phone with a bigger screen would A) still fit easily in your pocket and B) still be usable with one hand. However some people may actually want the bigger phone because much like the screen size that was stuck at 3.5" for the longest time the phone dimensions themselves have stayed in the same ballpark pretty much since introduction.

    So which do you actually want, bigger screen or bigger phone?

    Personally a bigger screen is what I want. I love the size of the phone right now. I even love the 4" screen but if there's a bigger screen I'll try it out. I love the one handed use for the times that it comes in handy. The bigger phone would be interesting to see but that's about it for my interest.

    I don't actually need a bigger screen, but if they do offer one I hope the physical dimensions of the phone don't change much.
    So bigger screen, not bigger device. Needs to be pocketable in women's jeans which tend to have much smaller pockets.

    As i've mentioned before, if they can squeeze a bigger screen in a form factor that is only marginally larger than the current version, maybe by reducing the bezel size, then I would be all over that. If they could put a bigger screen in the same size form factor then I would be in heaven.

    A larger screen for these eyes would be welcomed, if it was possible to make the screen larger and the actual iPhone(6) just a little bigger, I would be all over that.

    I'm definitely in the same boat as you guys as I said. The size of the phone is fine for me so a bigger screen would be a change. If they did do a bigger phone I would just be interested in seeing their take on it and how people take it. I'm still iffy on what I would do if they only offered bigger phones then I'd have to buy it because iPhone is my platform of choice.

    They won't offer only bigger. I believe they will have the same size as iPhone 5s and a larger screen(phone) model. They won't take away the size that is offered now. The bigger iPhone will sell in record numbers IMHO....

    I like the size of my 5s, and think it's the perfect size for me ... But Apple has a way of making me change my mind.

    I like the phone the way it is the size is perfect but if I don't gave a choice definitely a bigger screen not bigger phone

    In fact if the only change is screen size on the i6 I'm keeping my i5s

    Your post made me think.

    I'd be interested to know how many people who owned a device from the 3.5" previous generations felt that a 4" screen was too big and who now owns a 5/5S and is completely happy with their choice and wonders how they ever got by on a smaller screen.

    I think the proportion is probably higher than first thought and if so it does perfectly highlight what you have said that Apple has a way of changing your mind.

    I'd rather have a larger screen in the same footprint as the 5/5S to be honest

    I really want a bigger screen. If that means larger overall device size, I'm OK with the tradeoff.

    That's not a bad idea at all but I would like to see a 5"+ iPhone as well.

    This is such a tough one for me. I have a Note 3 that I'm using along with my 5s right now. I am pretty sure apple won't go to a screen that big, but a bigger screen would be nice for certain things. On the other hand I love my 5s for ease of use with one hand. I feel like I'm going to drop the Note 3 every time I pull it out of my pocket.

    The bottom line is that I think apple will make a phone with a bigger screen in a slightly bigger form and it will be awesome. I also think they will have a phone the size of the 5s for those not wanting the bigger screen.

    I'd like a bigger screen but in the same current foot print. If the foot print must increase I'd like for it to be no bigger than the Moto X. Or, we can just keep what we got!

    OK, if you take this question literally it seems a bit strange. Of course everybody would rather have a bigger screen than a bigger phone! I'd like to have a phone the size of a credit card with a 7" screen.

    But, I'm assuming what was meant was would you rather have a bigger screen but in the same form factor as the 5/5s (which would top out at about 4.5"), or a bigger device with a larger screen to match. My preference is a 5" - 5.5" screen, of course in as small of form factor as possible.

    If the iPhone 6 screen will have the same aspect ratio as that of the 5/5s, I'd be sold. It's possible to fit in 4.3" in the recent iPhone😁

    I thought the size of the Z10 would have been perfect for the next iPhone.
