    If you had the veto vote before releasing the iPhone 5s what is one thing that you would add or remove before launch?


    For me it would have been the screen size, I would have insisted on a 4.5 inch screen.

    Mine would definitely be the screen size as well.

    @EmceeGeek .... Aside from the screen size everything else is perfect, I think it's really the only thing that gives me envy to other devices.

    I would add the "active" feature that the Samsung Galaxy S series has...waterproofing, shock-proofing, dust-proofing, etc. I'm constantly doing stuff outdoors...and the delicate nature of most smart phones (including my preference of iPhone) leaves me worried about damaging it with no real recourse (without having to use an extended warranty service like Apple Care + or SquareTrade). It'd be really awesome to be able to to kayaking and find myself not having to worry (as much) about my iPhone...making me feel like I need to leave it in the car vs. taking it with me. I should also add that LifeProof cases have not impressed me so far, the one that I had was really not a livable addition.

    Definitely screen size (but I'm still waiting for mine, so maybe my 'vote' isn't valid!)

    It's not that the screen size is bad, I would just like it to be a little bigger. Heck even if they enlarged it so that the bezel was super thin we could have a larger screen with the same form factor. The screen as is looks fantastic. However my thumbs just aren't shrinking ;-)

    I wouldn't really change anything physical with the 5S... MAYBE add stereo speakers, and a Back & Gold color option... But I'd rather add more of the gesture navigation to iOS on the 5S that is present on the iPad and OS X Mavericks. Multifinger pinch to the home screen. Multifinger swipe up for multitasking... Etc etc

    My only change would be screen size. 4.5" to 5" with Apple's sense of design and ergonomics would be amazing to me.

    Totally agree with this!!! Just a tad larger screen and it would be perfect...half an inch maybe!

    Screen size somewhere between 4.2 to 4.7 would be great.

    Bigger screen would be cool. But please not the size of the Galaxy.
    I really like the compact feel of the iPhone.

    Id like a wider screen! It would be much easier to type on IMO. Also, for they keyboard keys to be flush against each other; remove the space that is there. There are many people who like the current screen size... why not make two models?

    I would probably have put the volume on controls on the right side instead of the left side.

    One thing I definitely would NOT have changed is the size of the screen. I definitely do not want a bigger or a wider screen.

    There are several things that I would change about the iOS, however, starting with a native file browser. Not deal killer things, but things I would like to see.

    I would like Apple to remove the option to quit apps altogether because I get tired of explaining to people that it does nothing and that iOS handles quitting apps when it needs the memory and/or CPU.

    I'd prefer the 5C casing. Get rid of the aluminum. Keep the 5S internals.

    I wouldn't change a thing about the iPhone 5S. I'll just wait and see what the next iPhone will feature.

    I get the demand for screen size but you're also asking for higher resolution as well. If not doubled again, all apps will look like garbage on that bigger screen. Even if doubled, most will then be somewhat blurry.

    I have no doubt they can increase resolution given every android competitor has been able to do it. The larger issue for me would be increasing screen size and resolution without decreasing battery life and killing any chance of one-handed use. There-in lies the challenge and reflects Cook's thoughts that he shared in recent interviews.
