    So assuming all the leaks are true, I can’t say I’m all that happy. I almost feel as if my hand is forced. Each year I buy the MAX model 6.5” only to return to 5.8” which seems to be the sweet spot for me. I just can’t seem to get use to the 6.5” or 6.1” models. Which brings us to my point. I actually would really be looking forward to the upcoming 5.4” device, but it’s seems like quite the step down from my 11 Pro. While it will apparently have some noticeable spec bumps and 5G, it will be aluminum, take a hit in the camera category, and likely have a smaller battery than my 11 Pro.

    So basically I feel I’m forced in two directions. One I could keep my 11 Pro which is an idea that’d last about two weeks anyway or go up to the more premium version of the two 6.1” models.

    Any thoughts? I get it, people are excited about two 6.1” options and the 6.7” as well, but what about those who prefer the smaller devices. Will a $650 iPhone 12 that’s 5.4” be able to stack up to the X, XS, or 11 Pro 5.8” models and what will you do?

    I currently have an Xr so.....

    Smaller size (5.4) = good

    OLED screen = good

    New design, aluminum = good

    Better camera = good

    Cheaper than iPhone 11 = good

    5g = whatever

    Latest processor = good

    Equals

    Probably my next phone

    I’m going for the iPhone 12 Pro Max Extreme Supreme this year.
    After having used my iPhone 7 Plus 256GB Gold for 4 years, I think I’ve deserved that.

    I'm going for the 6.1" Pro if I decide to purchase a new phone. The 6.1" size is actually the sweet spot for me.

    I think I'm going to skip this year, but if I change my mind I will most likely get the 12 Pro Max (largest available screen size) 256gb.

    I’ve been jailbroken for almost 2 weeks. I feel like I have a new device but I still can’t wait for this year’s iPhones. I can’t wait until more rumors surface as we get closer.

    I currently use a iPhone 11 Pro and that’s about as large as I need to go. Anything larger then that, I am out and will continue to use my current device.

    So there in lies my question. You’re at 5.8” and based on most everything out there your choices are 5.4”, 6.1”, or 6.7”...so does that mean you’ll use your 11 Pro til EOL or make a move?

    Over the past couple of years I’ve been on an X, handed that off to my hubby and went to a Xs max. After a bit it was just too large for me so I handed off my Xs max to one of my sons got an 11. In the beginning it was a seeet spit size for me but then after 6 mths it was started to feel too big again. Last week I traded with my hubby. He took the 11 and I took back my original X from him.

    After a couple of years playing with phone sizes I’m content with the 5.8” screen. If when the 12 comes out and that size isn’t available, then I may consider getting an 11 Pro or just hang onto this X for as long as possible.

    I’d rather not have another monthly payment with a new phone again.
