    Anyone else wish the iPhone had a bigger screen size? I personally think the bbz10 has the perfect size screen. And I can only hope apple makes an iPhone with that screen size.

    Man, I've never even thought about screen size before. I'm surprised nobody has ever posted about it on here!

    NO. I am happy with this size. I don't want a larger phone.

    I am happy with the screen and personally hope that all the rumors about a 4.5" are untrue.

    But... bigger is better! 'Murica! I need a 6.5" 16-core smartphone so I can watch my Youtube videos while I eat my triple quarter pound hamburger and drink my 44oz soda pop in the front seat of my 7 passenger 8000lbs SUV that gets 9mpg which I constantly drive completely alone!

    But I digress. I wouldn't complain if the iPhone had 4.2" to 4.7" screen... but I am completely satisfied with the current screen size. When I need more screen real estate than the iPhone can muster to consume media, that is what the iPad is for.

    I always thought that was the sweet spot also.

    I'm coming from a Galaxy S2, Sprint version, that had a 4.5in screen. I really thought I would miss the screen size but so far I'm perfectly content.

    The horse is dead, has been beaten to a bloody pulp and the vultures have picked the carcass clean.

    Apple will release an iPhone with a bigger when and only when they feel it's necessary.

    The next iPhone is definitely going to be bigger then 4 inches. It's a given.

    The question is, how will they handle the screen resolution? If they keep the current resolution, then DPI will drop too low. Even if they made a phablet size, i don't think that would justify doubling the pixel count on both axes, but it would make life easier for developers. Something in between would require some rework for apps, unless Apple can come up with some good auto scaling tools. I'm not sure if that is practical.

    I love the iPhone but I have some pretty big hands, just wish they had one with a screen no bigger than 5". And I refuse to use androids or windows phones.

    If the iPhone 6 has bigger screen, I don't care how it happens I will throw a mannequin made of pig meat and filled with fake blood over the side of the Apple HQ. And I will then grip Tim Cooks hand tightly, and walk him out into the street where I will make us get hit by a car, and then I will make us fall back onto another car, and we will just go back and forth all day.

    I will do this if it does have a bigger one

    If Apple puts a 4.3" screen on the iPhone, people will complain that it doesn't have a 5" screen...if Apple puts a 5" screen on the iPhone, people will boast about how Apple is copying the rest of the market is is not innovative...there is no winning on this front, there is no "optimal" screen size that is different than what the iPhone offers now (when it comes to general market approach)...based on the continued popularity and success Apple finds with the iPhone, it seems to me that they found the optimal screen size for the release time each iPhone has come out. I have no doubt it will be larger in the future, but I don't think there will ever be a stop to these kinds of posts.

    I'm hoping the next version gets a bigger display.. while the current size is great for a LOT of people, I really do need a bigger display at this point.

    I wouldn't mind a bigger screen but I still want it to be a one hand phone. I need my phone to be able to fit into the pocket of my skinny jeans or a clutch for an evening out. That's just the short list of what I need out of my phone!
