    My Lumia 1520 is too big for a daily driver. It's a good companion device.

    If Apple went bigger than the 6 Plus I'd go to the 6 Plus but I don't think I would go farther.

    And somehow I don't think Apple is going to play keeping up with the Joneses. They went bigger because the demand was there. But I don't think they'll ever do something like the Samsumg Mega just fur scuzzz....
    Precisely, I thought they just wanted a Note competitor out there and they did it. I don't think they will go bigger just for the sake too. As a matter of fact, I dearly hope not.

    Unless they add added functionality for bigger touchscreens (stylus support or dual multitasking), I don't see the point.

    Do you think they will come out with a phone bigger than the Plus, to match perhaps the Nexus 6?

    I personally am worried Apple might just do something like that...which is a silly move in my opinion.

    What do you think? Voice out...
    I think they will keep 2 sizes like they have. No real need to go larger, apple beats to their own drum, so they most likely are not worried about niche devices like those 6+ inch phones.

    Haven't heard of anyone returning their 6 for the smaller 5S. Most say after two days use there no going back.

    I have seen several stories of people leaving their 6 to get a 5S. Some people just don't like bigger phones.

    In response to the OP. I think it's unlikely. Possible but unlikely. I'd think that would involved the added expensive of a new design, though they may have already been working on such a thing in order to find the optimal size for the iphone 6 and 6 plus. That said, Apple tends to keep designs for a little while. They won't want to utterly cannibalized tablets. I'm guessing the market for giant phones is much smaller and that may be a deterrent. Especially given they have a ipad mini in the same range. One thing Jobs did when he returned was streamline their product offering and not have too much overlap. Now I think Cook may not really be making the same decision as Jobs would but i also think he probably doesn't want too many products to muddy the brand and the price points and give consumers too much choice to be confused with. Were I a betting man, oh I am. Never mind. If i was to guess I'd guess that the next few updates will focus more on software, spec bumps and if they are lucky maybe some genius new features or accessories. Off the top of my head i'd think Beats would be a big thing they could focus on. I know the geek crowd hates them. Doesn't really change things. Those headphones make that department self sufficient. I can see Apple coming on stage announcing a new Itunes radio which is basically beats and itunes radio slammed together. I could see maybe upgraded bluetooth beats pills. They have the new health app and maybe they want more accessories for it, integrating it with the Apple watch. I don't know but my gut thinks that the next Iphone will be more about adding software features and tweaking things.

    If they'd offer the 5s size in the new shape i may have gone for that. Especially if it was cheaper.

    If the 5S was redone with modern internals (A8 Processor, with iPhone 6 Camera), I would definitely try to get one. I need a small flagship for my daily use, and one has not presented itself yet.

    The 5S is still a beast. I don't think it's noticeably slower than the 6. I'm not sure about the camera.

    It is a good phone, but I would like the benefits of what the A8 processor brings in a even smaller package than what the iPhone 6 offers.

    honestly, i had a 4s and i can't tell any difference between whatever that processor is and whatever the iphone 6 has speedwise. And it's a phone so unless it's as slow and laggy as my palm pre it's not gonna be a deal breaker for me. Meaning i'd be pretty easily satisfied. Honestly, the only really big selling points for me of the iphone 6 was new rounder shape and LTE since i was on a 4s with only 3G and a shell i wasn't fond of.

    I can tell the difference, you'll notice speed differences in web browsing, and games more importantly.

    Between the 4S and 6, the speed difference is night and day by just opening and closing apps.

    Do you think then that if a iPhone 5s refresh got the same externals as the 6 Plus, it would have just sold the same numbers as well? Or was the bigger sized device a much needed product in Apple's portfolio?

    I think people were clamoring for a bigger screen for a while. I don't think the Plus was as much needed to satisfy those consumers as much as an iPhone coming with a generally larger screen as the iphone 6. That is what was much needed, in my opinion. Look at the crazy amount of iphones that have sold as of now. I truly don't believe they'd be the same numbers for a refreshed 4 inch device.

    I agree. Larger screens are the current trend, moreover I don't believe there is a compelling reason to buy the 6, if not for the larger screen, the 6 plus fit the bill. The 6 even required a larger screen.

    But not between the 5,5s and 6. For people who haven't upgraded since the 4s , yes it's a nice leap in tech, IMHO

    I think a good deal would sell if they sold like a 4.3 inch display model with the 6 internals. That is something I would really like. 4.3 inch is the real spot for me. Small enough for one handed use easily in any situation, and not that small that watching a video won't be a problem with.

    I would have been perfectly fine with an upgraded 4.7 inch phone too...But that's because of my exposure with Android, but I still find myself wanting to use a iPhone 5s regardless of my love for the Android platform. Maybe it's just how I see Apple as a phone manufacturer, the one who still makes the smaller phones...
