    How does everyone feel about the rumored new larger iPhone 6?
    I personally think the iPhone 5 screen size is ideal. I've owned a Samsung S4 before, but sold it because I thought it was too big for the pocket but 'big' is somewhat subjective.

    How does everyone feel about the new 4.7 and 5.5 inch screen?

    Since we don't know for sure what the iPhone 6 will look like or what size its screens will be, it's difficult to comment. All I know is that my iPhone 5c is large enough as it is and anything larger will be more of a burden to carry around.

    I've seen the big Samsungs. Just. Say. No. The 5s I have is just about perfect size.

    You know, when I got my first 5 inch device, I thought it was much too large. I thought it was bulky and it felt really odd in my hand. Now however, if you tried to give me an iPhone 5/5s or an equivalent sized phone, I'd think you gave me a phone designed for children (in size only, that's not a criticism of the phone quality or software). I can just about guarantee that if Apple released a larger iPhone, you'd grow to love it and never want to go back. Indeed, I now feel the same way you each feel about a 5" device - you want to give me a 4" device? Hmm, no, I'm good.

    To each their own I suppose. I could be way off but most people I see come to love and grow into the phone. In fact, I tell myself this every time I see a reviewer say "the Galaxy Note 3 is huge but the size is amazing."

    There's definitely a balance between size & functionality. I remember before smartphones (just regular cell phones)...the industry was trying their best to make them as small as possible (you guys should see my cellphone).

    Now with smartphones & the display size...it does seem to be the trend to push how big is too big. Or how big is perfect.

    For you young fellas it's probably OK, but us poor old guys have a hard enough time wearing heavy shoes let alone carrying around a 5 or 6 inch phone.

    Maybe the slightest increase in screen size, but not much. It still has to fit in my pocket and in my hand.

    I have a Samsung Note II. It is huge and I love it. I have a belt pouch for it and have been known to just slip it into a back pocket. In either place it rides well. I love the big screen and I really love the battery life. Even if I use it very heavily all day I have never fallen below 20% at the end of the day.

    If the iPhone 6 comes out with a screen size that is close to my Note and a battery that will last at least 12 hours, I will be looking at it for my next phone. I plan to get a new one in November. We shall see.

    I would love to have my electronics to be all Apple so they would all play well together.

    First of all, thank you for calling me young, haha. Second, wouldn't a larger screen be more beneficial?

    A 5" phone will fit in your hand without issue. I have normal sized hands and this is what my Nexus 5 looks like in my hand:

    I'm not saying that a larger screen size works for everyone but I show that more to show that it's manageable. As always though, to each their own.

    5S is about my limit. I wear non-baggy jeans and anything bigger won't work. I've got room for maybe another 1/4" in length and width on a phone, then things will get uncomfortable. I found my Droid X to be one toke over the line in size.

    Those larger screens would be nice for these old eyes.


    Maybe I could start carrying a purse to put my phone in.

    Exactly! A six inch iPhone isn't that much smaller than my iPad mini, which fits nowhere. I don't want a holster, purse, man-bag or any other tote for a phone. Keep it small, Apple!

    MacBook Pro 15" Retina, 8GB RAM, 250GB SSD, Intel i7 2.3GHz.
    I love the perfect size of my iPhone 5s, and I really don't want a phone any larger.
    Unfortunately, I'm finding it increasingly difficult, in my middle age, of focusing while reading a 4" screen (and I was unable to adjust to progressive bifocals), so it is with great reluctance that I will have to embrace a larger phone. If the rumors are to be believed, Apple will release two new sizes - 4.7" and 5.6". I'll have to visit the Apple Store when they come out to see which one will work better for me.

    I expect that Apple will continue to sell the existing 4" size indefinitely, as well as a larger one in the near future. And why not? A lot of people obviously like it as it is. It would be simple to support two sizes indefinitely, especially if the aspect ratios are the same. They already support two sizes of iPads, so why not the iPhone too? The big unknown here is what the resolution will be.
