Once it's a 80% confirmation (obviously not from Apple) that the new iPhone will only have a 4" display I will jump to Android. Apple can no longer keep their customerbase by simply giving us little improvements each time. I'm sick of it. Samsung and HTC have already surpassed Apple on the hardware. And it's a matter of time before Android surpasses Apple in performance. They are so close to it now.

I'm so sick of people saying the bigger the screen, the better. Screen size has nothing to do with how great a screen is. Things like PIXEL PER INCH is more important. Some people also prefer it to be smaller cause it is easier to put it in their pockets.

I doubt the larger screen for the iPhone rumor is true. First, the masses are not screaming for it; secondly, developers would have to resize all of their apps again to take advantage of the marginal gain of real estate.
