    I'm willing to bet that whatever the iPhone Plus refresh is in a couple of years, it will probably have a slightly larger screen display. It of course could just remain the same at 5.5" but my inkling tells me that if some Android devices start getting above 5.7" (like the rumored Nexus 6 going 5.9") then it will probably happen. My question is how much bigger would be acceptable to you now that you've been getting used to a large screen sized phone for a couple of weeks now?

    I'd be fine if it was an increase to about 5.7" or 5.8". Going six inches is "too big" territory for me. Granted, it depends on how Apple would engineer the thing and make its industrial design easier to manage.

    What say you?

    I don't see it getting any bigger, unless they increase the screen size but shrink the bezels to make it essentially the same. Even then, though, I don't really see that happening. And as far how big would be too big personally, I could handle 5.7" as long as the phone itself is no bigger. So while I could manage it, I'd still probably opt for the smaller option. I like the Plus, but it would be far more appealing to me if they would shrink the bezels significantly. Until then, I think I'll hang closer to 5".

    If they could do it with a minimal bezel around the whole phone I think I could do 6 inches. I am loving my 6 Plus, I really haven't had any issues with one handed use so far and am loving the larger screen. I haven't missed my iPad Air that I gave to my wife when I got my new iPhone. The one thing I don't need is thinner please don't do that Apple. I don't mind a little heft to the phone.

    I think I'd be ok with anything up to and including the 6". I think the logical increase would be about 5.7", but there are a few small issues I have with the new phone despite loving it.....And none of them have to do with the size of the phone

    I'm happy here my little sister said my Paperwhite and iPhone 6+ are almost the same. I can't carry a device that big on my hand for day to day use

    As long as they don't get rid of the home button. I held the Nokia 1520 and it was way too much so perhaps 5.7 inches is ok? However, like the 6+/Note, I have to feel it in the hand to make sure.

    I'd love something in between the 4.7 and 5.5 size phone. Maybe put larger screens in the same size body for the iphone 7.

    5.7 sounds like the sweet spot to me, 6 is really pushing it to tablet territory. I think they could use the same form factor the 6+ has now and just shrink the bezels to make for a larger screen.

    5.5 is already huge! But I can see 5.7 if they can get rid of the bezels!

    Only if they managed to build the display around touch id which is kinda pointless, so this is pretty much about as large as I would go unless they keep the form factor and dimensions just about what they are now

    I could work with a 5.9 inch screen I think, plus I like to try new things but I doubt they are gonna change anything any time soon

    The LG G3 has a 5.5" screen and is both shorter (by almost half an inch) and narrower than the 6 Plus. If Apple did away with the bezels they could increase the screen size while keeping the device size the same. I highly doubt they would do that because the only real way would be to remove the home button and I just don't see that happening.

    If they stuck with their usual design concept the phone would become comically large to fit a larger screen. I think 5.5" is here to stay until a conceptual redesign of the whole thing happens.

    I don't care what kind of technology Apple institutes, but nothing will replace a physical home button for me. Ever.

    For me, the home button is the most crucial of all the physical buttons on the phone.

    IMHO both the iPhone 6 and 6+ are too big already. I can't put my iPhone 6 down but I still feel it is already at the absolute largest size I would ever buy. The iPhone 6+ and device in that category is already a no go for me.
