    However, the same can be said in regard to the Crackberry, WebOS, WIndows Mobile and Android forum. Having said that, they are all fan sites to a certain degree. Wouldn't you agree?
    With the Android site, I would agree that it is an Android user site, but I am not sure I would go so far as to call it a fan site. People (me included) regularly slam the manufacturers and Google when there is cause. There is a heck of lot of arguing between those who buy one manufacturer's device over the others. Of course, there is also the slamming of Apple over there. But really not much more than the slamming of the android manufacturers and even Google. We especially like to slam the carriers and come up with ways to defeat their oligopolistic practices.

    Yes there are posts about what people like, too about the android phones, but it doesn't get to the level I would call a fan site.

    I would say on the Android site it is pretty fragmented by device, just like the Android ecosystem. People ***** about Google quite a bit, too. It is not a big love Google fest by any means on that forum.

    This is obviously a personal preference. I used a Galaxy S2 4.5 inches & then a Galaxy S3 4.7 inches for a total of like almost 2 years and one of the dislikes I had was missing one hand usage. I don't have the largest hands or the smallest hands but I really liked being able to text and stuff with one hand while I'm walking or if I'm lying in bed I like to be able to use my phone with one hand no problem. The iPhone 5 is the perfect size for me. It took me about 2 weeks to get used to the downgraded screen sizes since I was so used to the Galaxy S3 but I still prefer the iPhone 5 screen size mainly because of easy one hand usage.

    I'd rather my phone stay a phone. I got a an iPad mini because I wanted a larger screen for reading, watching videos and playing games. My iPhone now is to keep me informed and for points of reference.

    For me, the screen size, width, and thickness of the 5 is perfect. I don't wanna feel like I'm walking around with a brick in my pocket like I was back when I had a PPC-6600.

    Our electronics should be evolving (thinner, lighter, faster), not vice versa.

    If a child can use a 4.7" 3:5 Nexus 4 one-handed, I'm pretty sure the average adult can.
    Sorry, but I call bs on this.

    These days, you have 2-year-olds using tablets and smartphones and knowing their way around them. So smartphones aren't made for children but can certainly be used, even to their full function, by children.
    Most of the kids in my life (ages 3 and up) have iPads. They use them flawlessly and this is the perfect medium to introduce kids to computing. But we're talking grown adults who have choices. If it doesn't fit, there's always another that does.

    One handed operation for people with larger hands? How about a larger keyboard instead. I can type almost 20 words a min in landscape on the iPhone. I suck one handed.

    My question is, besides typing, where else are y'all having problems using the iPhone one handed?

    I, too, think it is a fad. Heck, I remember how people equated me talking on my Blackberry 7290 to talking with a brick to my ear. If that device was considered a brick back then, i suppose today's mammoth devices are slabs of concrete....

    I like the forum. I come here for jailbreak info and the latest rumors. All I'm saying is that if you come here for actual discussion about pros and cons of Apple products and practices, you're gonna be disappointed. Its a fanboy forum.
    Ahhh...a judgmental labeling of the forum by a not so subtle troll. Doesn't get much more legitimate than that! I've personally always preferred sweet and sour chicken myself...but i digress.

    I can totally understand people's desire to have a larger screen, it works better for some...and thankfully we have a pretty broad spectrum of devices now that hit the mark with whatever screen size is your preference. In that though, when are people going to give it a rest with the whole "Apple better do "x" or else!"? I mean really? The iPhone is not going to be the same size as the Galaxy S or the note.

    But who puts a smartphone up to their ear? I only do it if I can't find my bluetooth.

    I still do. I love using my Jawbone Icon Bluetooth device, but there are times when I simply don't want to use it and I have no problem putting my smartphone to my ear and talking on it.

    I've been looking at the iPhone 5, and think the size looks great, update coming in July, and I think if the 5s is much bigger. I will probably go with the 5.

    [WARN]Time to get back on topic. This is an Applecentric site and we know that the users like their Apple to the point of not liking other operating systems. This thread is not for the purpose of comparing, it is simply for discussing iPhone device size.[/WARN]

    The one-handed use thing is old. Apple has to adjust to the times and the competition. Go big or go home. lol

    I'm not a big fan of having a hulking device in my pants pocket. What I do like, though, is the 4:3 aspect ratio of my iPad. It is much better for gaming and for reading web articles. Plus, it would make sense to have the same ratio across all devices. Do that, and stay around 4.5" and I think most people would be satisfied.

    I agree with the one-handed thing 100%, but not the last statement. I have tried the 4S and the 5, but having vision problems, they don't work for me. I would love to see an iPhone with the screen size of the Galaxy S3. I think that Apple would sell all that they could make, and take a big chunk out of Android's dominance in marketshare.
    When pigs fly...............

    And as I have stated in the past, WHY doesn't Apple put text wrap on their phone (besides the reader on Safari). It is such an aggravation to scroll side-to-side to read a zoomed item.

    The day i purchased a car with bluetooth connectivity it was like a whole new world, lol. I immediately sold my BT headset (that i always hated and that never fit properly and was uncomfortable after having in my ear for hours upon hours).

    I don't usually connect my phone. I try to leave Wifi and BT off unless I absolutely NEED them on, and if I don't pair it frequently my car "forgets" the connection. I also don't really like the idea that anyone that comes too close to my car can hear my conversations. Hearing ME is one thing, hearing both sides is another.
