    4.7 64GB calling my name (hopefully there will be such a device!)!
    5.5 might be too big for me personally, but I'd like to see, feel, play with both of them!

    That one calls my name as well. However, if it comes with a 128 gb option, I'm tellin' it to shut up. The same with the 5.5". Price and pocketability are issues there.

    My first choice is the 128GB 5.5" version. However, if it doesn't come out at all or if it doesn't come out by November or March, then I might wait until then or buy the 4.7" version or a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 in November or December or in March. I really want 128 GB of storage on an iPhone so that I can store all of my movies and I want a screen large enough to watch them on. If the 5.5" doesn't come out when I want, and the 4.7" has 128GB and supply levels are good at my local Apple store by November or December, then I'll get it then.

    I really hope Apple doesn't put a more powerful processor and better camera in the larger model. I want the only difference in the models to be screen size. I shouldn't be forced to have to use a large screen just to get the performance I want.
    Well it would make sense for the bigger phone to have the superior specs. Which makes me wonder which of the two (4.7 or 5.5) will be considered Apple's flagship phone.

    Not really. The iPad Air vs. the iPad Mini with Retina are identical spec wise, with the only differentiator being the screen size. I can't see Apple switching to a new strategy where the bigger the device, the better the specs/performance. I think if they do end up releasing 2 models, we'll see them packing the same specs and have similar performance.

    It will be good to see the two phones and try them in person. I went to a larger phone (5 inch screen) a few months ago, and the larger screen real estate is nice, such as recently when I watched a movie on the phone during a long flight.

    I thought the processor on the mini was throttled down just a bit?

    Yeah, but that's kind of a negligible spec difference IMO. You're not going to notice 1.4 GHz vs 1.3

    Same here 5" is about the threshold of a phone size IMO.

    Neither....yet.

    Just recently upgraded my 4 to the 5s and I also have a gen 1 Mini. I'm good between the two. My daughter, on the other hand, is due for upgrade in early November. I am pretty sure she will want the 4.7. For a teenage girl, the bigger phone just won't fit......

    Don't think I'll be getting either at launch, but only because all extra pennies are being stashed away for a new house and my 5s is still performing like a champ.

    I'm all probably in the minority in that I actually like having a smaller phone as I use it for everything, include music/streaming when I'm active, so the smaller form factor is ideal. I also have an iPad Mini Retina which is almost always with me when I'm out as it's my preferred device for web browsing, email, productivity (viewing PDFs, word docs), reading, video, and some gaming.

    All that being said, if I was buying at launch, I'd only get the 5.5" device to use as a replacement for the 5s/iPad Mini combo. I'd keep the 5s for those times when I need a smaller form factor.

    So today I went to a T-Mobile store and was using some Android phones to get a feel for how big the iPhone 6 models will be. I held the GS 3, a 4.8" display, and the Note 3, with a 5.6" display. I have to say, I really like the 5.5" general size. I have big hands, so I can one hand the phone no problem. I liked the size of the display, and now I'm starting to wonder if I'd rather get a 5.5" over a 4.7". I guess it just depends on price, performance, and whether or not the pros of a large display outweigh the cons.

    My concern would be exactly how much larger, if at all, the 5.5" iPhone ends up being compared to the 5.7" Note 3. The Note 3 doesn't have near the bezel that I am anticipating the iPhone will have so even though the Note 3's overall size might feel good in the hand, it might be a different story on the 6L or whatever they end up calling it.

    The ability to wield a 5.5" screen iPhone is not an issue with me. I used 2 hands on my iPhone 4 for most things. For me it is Price and pocketability. I could go buy several pair of cargo pants, but still the price of the 5.5" with 64 gb will be high. I'll most likely go with the 4.7" 64 gb.

    That's probably what I will end up doing. The 5.5" may be too expensive for me, and plus I can't decide which size I want now. I'm still about 75% sure I want the 4.7" though.
