    I trust Apple will do the obvious and move to 5" (while perhaps doubling the resolution) for the iphone 6X. As for the iphone 6? Keep it at 4".

    Why is that the obvious? Apple hasn't exactly followed trends in the past - though ios7 seems to be doing some of that.

    How can you tell someone else (who is spending his/her own hard-earned money) what is too big? What if someone told you that your phone was too small; if you want small, get a flip phone?
    I'm not telling you whatis too big. Just how history is repeating itself, and will probably continue to do so - going in cycles with screen size.

    I can't vote in the poll because all of the sizes are too big for my liking, but if Apple were to go big with the iPhone 6, *I'd be happy* if its display did not exceed 4.3 inches.

    I did get to play with a Moto X the other day and if Apple does do a larger screen they need to take a cue from Moto. The phone feels ridiculously small in the hand even though it is 4.7 inches. They managed to squeeze a big screen in to a small body that is still super easy to use one handed.

    But I'd really prefer if they only took cues about the screen, not the camera :-p. Woof.

    Im still moved to a point beyond words when users from other platforms march in here telling us what Apple needs to do. It matters not whether they are android bots, blackberry addicts, or windows folks... and whether they are forum mods, admins or trolls... my reaction is the same: "meh".
    But see this is why the us vs them mentality still exists. We are all tech lovers first and foremost. The platforms come after. So just because someone loves Blackberry, Android, WP, etc. doesn't mean they are poisoned to iOS. How many people have you seen with a BB, Android, etc and an iPod, iPad, iPad Mini? What I read he is not saying Apple needs a bigger screen to compete. He is saying next year IF Apple does a bigger screen. Does it make sense to do incremental steps like 3.5, 4, 5 or just go to 6? I think that is a valid question and interesting too.

    My thought is I love the current screen size. If there was a bigger size I would buy it but up to a certain size limit. My limit is 5" above that it's too big for me and I wouldn't bother with that model. A 6" iPhone doesn't make sense to me because that is so close to the iPad Mini. Since I don't see them doing a bigger screen and then a normal size screen it's hard for me to see them doing a size that will not be liked by the majority of the market. Like the 5c which addresses the majority of the market but not the entire market (cheap) they will most likely do a size that existing customers love and some segment of new customers will also love. They will never please everyone because everyone has a different idea of what size is comfortable and what is their limit.

    I won't buy a bigger screen'd iPhone so I am hopeful they don't succumb to the push to go bigger. The 5 and 5S are already pushing my threshold and are too big as far as I am concerned. I don't have giant manhands, and it needs to remain something functional with one hand. Plus, at those sizes they're no longer pocketable, and that's a big deal to me, as I don't always carry a purse, and I don't want it hanging out of my pants.

    The 6 will be bigger at least 4"3 to 4"8 i will patiently wait for 6
    I don't think there is any doubt that the next iPhone will be bigger. The real question is, how big?

    I really hope they they don't make it this big. For my hands, 4.5" will be the perfect size.

    If the next iPhone design is bigger I'll stay with iPhone. Wouldn't consider anything else.

    If Apple does come out with a bigger screened iPhone, it will definitely have a huge impact on Android sales.

    That might be the death blow.

    I don't think a larger screen Apple would "kill" Android off as an OS... it's available on far too much low quality/low priced junk all around the world to be killed off by a high end product like the iPhone.

    I do think a larger screen iPhone would definitely take a bite out of Samsung, HTC, Motorola, LG, and Sony's flagship devices sales though...

    I think a iPhone 6 with an option for a 4.6" 720p screen or 5.6" 1080p screen would be the best solution for Apple in my opinion.

    I feel that a 4.3"-4.5" iPhone would sell like hotcakes.

    Most I would go up to would be 4.7".
