    Just remember, a 4" screen means one of two things:
    1. Lose the retina quality as Apple defined it
    or
    2. If the res was bumped up to keep retina quality, lots of apps become incompatible and introduces the kind of fragmentation Apple doesn't want.

    So update the apps to work on various resolutions. And don't give me the bs that apple can't do it. I know you hate anytime android is mentioned but if android apps can work fine on every possible screen size apple and their developers can adjust their few apps to work with more than just 3 resolutions.

    To be fair, the app situation with Android is a giant mess. I ran into the issue with a lot of apps not displaying properly on my Galaxy Nexus.

    Absolutely correct. Some of the apps on the Rezound that I had were terrible in relation to the size of the screen. The text was so small on the banking app that I used I ended up deleting it as it was useless anyway.

    If Apple can do it on the 9.7" iPad 3 screen I think the 4" screen on an iPhone will be a piece of cake.

    Moto and Samsung release more phones than Apple. Besides, I never said anything about device sales. What I was getting at is Apple's strongest competitors offer larger screen displays therefore, it would only make sense for them to keep pace by offering a 4" device or better.
    Since when has Apple ever really cared what other tech companies are doing?? Never.

    That's what makes them who they are, they march to the beat of their own drum. They don't keep pace with anyone but themselves, which is something they should never change.

    You're right they don't care. All they will do is take everyone to court that is the only time they care about other companies.

    The iPad 3 is set to come out next month with a 9.7" retina display. What I meant was, if Apple can handle apps on a screen of that size with a retina display, they should have no problems with the apps on a screen with a 4" retina display.

    You have always seemed to have so much hostility towards Apple, just have to ask, why do you still use their products?

    I had a Atrix and Inspire. Not all apps viewed properly on both devices. That is flaw with Android.

    What I can't voice an objection to the petty lawsuits they file? Sorry I don't have my mouth wrapped around the Apple Teet like many of you. Not to mention just because I don't like how a company is run doesn't mean I can't use their products. Maybe next time I should ask you for permission before I post anything since it seems like posting something you don't agree with is a no no..

    Apple most certainly cares about what other tech companies are doing. They would be fools if they didn't which they aren't. You do not think Apple is VERY aware of Samsung, Amazon, Google and others? They will absolutely keep pace with them however, there goal is to surpass them on every level (if they haven't already).

    Understand, Apple is not the pioneer of all the products they offer. In some cases they enter the game later but again, with the goal of offering a better product.

    So yes, while Apple does march to the beat of there own drummer (credit to Jobs), Apple clearly recognizes they need to keep pace with the industry/competition and also, outpace them to be the company of choice.

    This is why I feel a bump in display size will be inevitable.

    Why that hostility toward me? All I did was ask a valid question based upon a majority of your posts here. If I didn't like something as much as you appear to dislike Apple or what they are doing with their products, I wouldn't own them. It's pretty simple actually. I was just curious as to what your logic is. Nothing more, nothing less. And on a side note please don't imply you can't speak your mind here (as long as it is within the forum guidelines) because that is not the case, and you are well aware of that.

    Like I said in my post has nothing to do with what they are doing with their products and has everything to do with the childish lawsuits they file anytime some competitors product starts selling well.

    It goes both ways. But I agree, none of these companies should be partaking in these lawsuits.

    Well everyone is wishing to get a bigger iPhone the next time they release it but I am quite doubtful of how they are going to play it. I know that Steve is the main factor while they have not jumped to the 4 inch screen bandwagon and though a new head is at the helm, we could not be too sure with how they are going to play things.

    We could all just hope that they decide to take that route.

    Trust me. Everyone is not wishing for a larger phone, only the people posting in A Larger Phone thread. The majority of the several hundred million customers are just fine with the current phone size.

    How do you know what the "majority" of "several hundred million customers" want? Do you have any facts or study that would back up your statement?

    No one is forcing you to upgrade. Just because they make a new larger model doesn't mean you have to upgrade. I dont understand why people are getting so upset. If you don't like it don't buy it simple as that.
