Report Claims Apple May Delay the iPhone 5S for a 4.3-Inch Display

A report from the Commercial Times, relayed by Bloomberg, claims that Apple may delay the release of the iPhone 5S to equip it with a larger 4.3-inch display.

Apple Inc. may delay the introduction of the iPhone 5S until the end of the year after the design was changed to feature a bigger 4.3-inch retina display screen, the Commercial Times reported. The company previously scheduled the release for September or October, the Taiwanese newspaper reported, citing unidentified people in the semiconductor industry.

The Commercial Times also noted that a cheaper version of the iPhone is expected by the end of the third quarter following the start of chip shipments in June. TSMC is expected to deliver chips of the iPhone 5S as soon as August.

The move to a 4.3-inch iPhone 5S is considered unlikely; however, Apple's rivals have done increasingly well with their larger devices.

I like to use both my hands. Why be limited. It's so much faster. This is why I like landscape. You can use your petite phone and we can use the slightly larger one. Choice is a good thing. Thankfully we're not living under socialism so they can make something for everyone. Just like with the iPad mini. Even with the one hand is small and I also have to strain my eyes because when you pinch to zoom you have to move it to see it all because it will not automatically fit to screen. That sucks. Eventually they will just keep improving on this as well. One finger typing is such a teen girl thing to do. Also it's only good for when you text and type which we know causes accidents and kills people. So he's a larger screen will help save lives.

Sure, lets go with something big enough to break, even with plastic and barely use 2 hands and oversized to fit in a palm, if a big screen "saves lives" I don't know what to tell ya about how many iPhone users there are out there, but I'm not saying you're wrong, just helpful facts.

The size of the iPhone is perfect as it is. No change is required. It should be operable with one hand. We don't wish to carry television screens soon. If anyone wants a bigger iPhone, please just get Samsung instead. They have a 6.2" screen Mega. That's for you.

This argument would never ends! You might have girly hands but the others have manly hands or fat fingers so the larger phones fit them better. And as I said, make 2 different sizes: 4.3" - 4.7" is good enough and most common size for all smart phones so nobody can say they copy Samsung, LG, Sony, Nokia.... Anything over 5" is ridiculous! But still, there's a market for those giant phones; otherwise, Samsung, LG, and some Chinese phone companies wouldn't make those phones! We should all agree to disagree!
