    I am actually a bit frustrated that the game is all around screen sizes. Yes it is convenient to have a bigger screen when surfing -probably even 5" is too small for that purpose- but other than that it is a hustle to carry around a brick in your pocket. And please try using a huge phone in your car... I would be sad if the dimensions of the iphone remained the same. It should become thinner, bezels should be reduced to minimum the least.

    But what I really dream of is a wearable nano sized iphone, e.g. integrated into iwatch and an extension screen of 4.7" to 5"+ which I can take with me when I need it. And it would be awesome if it were made out of see-through glass.
    Why thinner? The 5/5c/5s are pretty darn thin as is.

    Regardless, I would remain with the iPhone. But to upgrade to the 6 of the same size as my 5, it would need more new hardware than just a faster processor. If that's all it added, I'd just stick with my 5. Maybe buy a new battery. My 5 has been problem free. So...

    There's a Article here on iMore
    Tim Cook talks bigger iPhones, new product categories in new interview | iMore

    Tim Cook says they won't say no to a bigger screen but won't rush it out.

    How would you feel if the next iPhone did not have a bigger screen and just a faster processor and new design.

    Hmmm....that's a tough one. I do like the 4" form factor, but a bigger screen is somethig I have wanted for a while. I'd probably buy it either way though

    I was disappointed with the iPhone 5 size and even more with the iPhone 5S where nothing changes at all.

    The next iPhone just have a bigger screen.

    One of the reasons is that people don't have the same hand size, some people have smaller hands and some have bigger hands. Typing is sometimes little bit annoying on the iPhone, especially with the awesome but even more compressed German keyboard, (see comparison pictures).

    Just making the phone taller won't solve the problem, there have to be different screen sizes or at least one bigger size, minimum 4.7".

    If its not bigger I won't get it, for me personally a 4" display is a deal breaking, it just makes everything feel cramped and small for me. I also would not only want a bigger display but more content, e.g. websites still render at 320p on the iPhone, which is the same as it did in 2007, I would personally like 420-480p width on the next device, so we not only get more space but also more content.

    I don't really care about the size of the phone anymore. I am happy with the current size of the iPhone. I'm going to always have a full-sized iPad anyway. So I do all of my reading, web browsing, and watching movies on the iPad anyway. But I would not shy away from a bigger iPhone.

    I'd feel duped. There really hasn't been a single indicator that the next iPhone will be anything other than either 4.7" or 5.5" so if Cook walks out on stage with a 4" iPhone I will feel completely played, and likely chuckle a little bit. Then weep. I'm down for at least the 4.7"

    I would be disappointed. I'd keep the 5S until another great non-Galaxy Android device is released. I loved my Moto X and I felt like the size (4.7in) was perfect. I don't want anything smaller than that.

    I agree, the Moto X has an awesome screen size. I still also like the one hand usability of the current 5 and 5s. I definitely want that bigger screen though

    I would be disappointed. I used the Galaxy S5 for a week, and the screen is a thing of beauty! My favorite apps like Tumblr and weheartit looked amazing on that 5-inch screen. I have the iPhone 5s, and I've been saving my upgrade for the iPhone 6, but if it's not bigger I'll just use my upgrade on the Galaxy S5.

    Honestly, I've had screen envy for a long time. A friend of mine just purchased the HTC One (M8) and I must say it does have a gorgeous screen that I wish my 5s had. The kicker is, that I've very invested in the ecosystem (Mac and iOS) so I have no intentions of changing any time soon. Although Apple's current product line isn't that revolutionary, all of the current products are 10 steps able the competition.

    The One M8 was a phone I considered for awhile, and I have to admit it has an amazing screen. I also wish that the iPhone would get a display like that. Hopefully the iPhone 6 will have a >400 ppi screen

    I probably wouldn't upgrade. The bigger screen would be the main draw for me.

    I wouldn't mind much at all. In fact, I really like the current screen size of the 5/5C/5S.

    I do not currently have an iPhone. The biggest reason is because of the screen size (my current phone is 5"). If the iPhone 6 does not come out with a 4.5" or larger screen I will once again for my contract cycle not consider the iPhone. Once you go to a 4.5" or higher screen, the 4" or below is just painful.
