    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...

    It's possible. 5.5 to 5.96 or 6.0?
    I'm not worried about it. If something smaller is offered one can go with that.

    Maybe the iPhone 7 will go to a 6" screen in a body roughly the same size.

    If the 6" screen phones are selling like hotcakes, they'll probably jump in on that action. But they're not selling like hotcakes. Most people don't want a phone that huge. I don't. I just don't see the demand for a 6" screen causing Apple to say, "Oh, we need to make and sell those!". Nah! Won't happen.

    I still think Apple would have done better to do a refresh of the 5s to join the iPhone 6, as they have that small phone market properly squared away but when they came out with the Plus they were going into riskier uncomfortable territory... Imo.

    There is no way that a refreshed 5S alongside the iPhone 6 as it stands would garner the same demand. Just look at what is going on now. There are still lines outside of Apple stores 8 weeks later. This is what happens when you make products that your consumer base is clamoring for. I still think if the iPhone 6 was the 4 inch on the 6 Plus was the 4.7", they would sell by the boat and boatloads like now though. But not to the point where the production in numbers doesn't come near the demand. I think Tim Cook admitted that in the conference call during the last earnings.

    This could mean people want a phone above 5 inches according to demand and they don't care if it's Apple or any other manufacturer they just want a big big phone....

    Well people wanted a bigger phone but from Apple. Many people probably did what I did and tried another platform for a while because they wanted that screen and it only furthered their desire for a big screen like that running iOS.

    If they go bigger, it screws with resolutions and ppi. I don't really see it happening. As it is, I can barely use the current Plus. Given the bezels Apple needs, a 6" phone is just not usable. I'm already thinking of going down to 4.7" with the iphone 6S. Depends on what is announced.

    A big phone with iOS.
    I didn't necessarily want a big phone. But I was intrigued by a big iPhone so I gave it a shot and I'm more than pleased with it. I think I would only go back to the smaller iPhone if the Plus was discontinued. There is nothing wrong with a 4.0 or 4.7 I just now prefer the 5.5.

    Aside from not necessarily wanting a big phone (because I did), I share this sentiment. I would have easily upgraded to the iPhone 6 if that was all that was being released. I would have upgraded if the iPhone 6 came in the 4-inch factor, even. Because my desire to use a mobile device with iOS far outweighs the screen size. Which is something I learned on my own over the summer.

    To play devil's advocate:

    During the rumors of the two sizes I figured the bigger phone would cost $100 more simply based on the size and nothing more. The two phones would share the same hardware specs. I see now why Apple upped the specs on the Plus. To justify that extra cash to someone making the purchase. That someone is the already established iPhone user that uses the camera a lot and would love to have a display even more gorgeous than what was currently available. This person would overlook the gigantic size because it was worth putting up with in order to get those specs.

    Look at the thread that Sean made in the 6 Plus sub-forum. I thought it brought up a really great question. If the iPhone 6 had the same features as the Plus, he would have opted for the iPhone 6 and so would have many others. Would he and the others have just upgraded for the 3rd straight year to a phone that had the same screen size?

    I don't think we'll see a larger than 5.5" phone from Apple. Many think that the 5.5" size is large enough, to add to that would be a bad move IMO.

    If the demand is there then I think they'll eventually make one. I'm sure the option of a smaller phone will be available.

    I had a 4.7" HTC One (M7). I've had a few BlackBerries. I have a house full of Macs, iMac, iPod Nanos, Apple TV, iPads, ect. But never an iPhone. I always thought 4.7" was the perfect size. The 6+ came out, and I was wrong. When I finally got the wife to agree to a smart phone, she took my M7 and I went to a Q10. She complained that the phone was too big. She now has an iPhone 6, and she no longer complains about the phone being too big.

    Will Apple go bigger than 5.5" ? Who knows. Maybe, if the demand is there. One thing I won't do is swear off a phone bigger than 5.5". I am glad I went with the plus and not the plain old six. 5.5" screen is plenty, for now.

    Funny thing, now that I have the 6 and 6 Plus, when I need to use my wife's 5 or the kids 5c's they feel really small
    I have the plus, I feel the same way when I pick up the wife's 6.

    i think that 5.5 is as far as i would go for now. I'm actually one of the people who thought that the i6+ was too big at the beginning, so i got a i6 instead, but now after seeing them in the wild. I'm thinking about getting a i6+ eventually.
    And to answer the question I think Apple will make 5.5 work for at least another year, and they would go bigger if it made sense for them to.

    I think that is equally a wise decision of bringing the smaller screen as per the market demand. As people has recetly experienced the bigger screen of iPhone 6 Plus, they might wish to turn to a smaller screen which is a far better comforatble when compared to iPhone 6 Plus.

    I personally just think Apple came up with iPhone 6 Plus because of the Note series, and it felt like they just took the iPhone 6 and brought it to the bigger form factor without any thought of how they would improve the overall design of the rounded aluminium body to make better sense for the bigger phone.

    It is like Apple just wanted to compete in the bigger phone space but didn't really think far beyond the work they put into the iPhone 6, which is why I think the effort put into the 6 Plus was more lackluster than I thought.

    I felt if they could have stuck to the smaller phone while improving upon the iPhone 6 design language for it would have sufficed, but they obviously needed to create an Samsung Galaxy Note competitor to stifle the Korean electronics giant.

    This is me as well.

    The extra specs on the 6+ mean nothing to me. It's just plain too big. IMHO the iPhone 6 is right at the edge of being too big for me as well. If it wasn't so thin I probably would have gotten a 5s. The 2013 Moto X is the perfect size.

    I think for many the spruced up specs over the iPhone 5s on the 6 would have justified many people's decisions to get the bigger 6 Plus, with an added advantage (or excuse) of the bigger screen real-estate.

    I can definitely see the benefit of that, no doubt.

    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....
