If it is true that the next iphone will be larger, I will look forward to the larger screen. I watch a bit of TV on my iphone and it is a little hard on my eyes. I see the samsung my friends have and I love seeing pictures on their phones. I hope if it rolls out that it will be successful. I'll probably see what it looks like before I actually get one.

I use iPhone and not 1 problem

Yeah, I bet the s5 size will be 6" and work like the 5s in every way so samsheeps defend them once again, logic at its finest.

One of Steve Jobs intended design cues of the iPhone was that it could used with one hand. Do you really believe they will abandon this very important feature?
SamsunkIsCrap - January 26, 2014 at 7:27pm
It comes in 3 sizes, like it says in this or the other articles somewhere it's listed "iPhone can't exceed 4.8" because of one hand use" so doubt it.

Steve Jobs also felt that Apple would be the computer "for the rest of us," but what I see today is that Apple is going the way of big business...it does what it wants, it puts obsolescence into the market so that we are almost forced to buy new equipment.It is all about money money money. Understandable up to a point. They don't supply parts for older machines and if you fix up your own machine outside of apple, event though it is out of warranty, they won't sell you a part even a battery. It has been very frustrating for me. They changed the os system some features which are good and some also very annoying, but what I am finding out is I may have to get a new printer because my printer now which I am very happy with is not supported by the printer company when it comes to Apple's new system. So instead of making life easier, it is more complicated now, and when like me you get older, I want less complications and less to spend money on. I like keeping my apple products going as long as possible, but apparently not the case with Apple.

Do not believe this story. Apple would never scrap a product that they released so recently and gave as much-hype as they did with this inexpensive version of the iPhone. That would represent an admission of failure which I don't believe they would be willing to do. Besides what people still clearly don't get is the phone was never destined for success in this country. It was destined for success in regions where people do not have large quantities of disposable income to splurge on new phones every year or two.

You have a point but it's how people see the entire phone and just beg hard for a big screen, and throw iPhone away for samshit just for that, Apple doesn't have a choice. Unless this turns out to be the same as the 5s and 5 but bigger (if possible they make the old look of the iPhone which they include the old stuff) then the 4" phone will have to come next year. They did the impossible with the 5s and released the 4" year after year (the only same thing about the iPhone until now) but they just want to give everyone what they beg for and they waited long enough to focus on this.

Call me whatever you'd like but this is a dream come true. This makes me happy. Finally a larger iPhone with options on size. The lonely wackers can use an iPad with a cover that stands on it's own. Look bitch no hands.

You're so picky over screen size that you have been begging for it for as long as you have been and now they wanted to give the barking bitches their bones, and here it is, growling pimp. Here's one way to stand it up, just sit back and bend your legs up, works like that, look pimp, no hands.
Bony - January 23, 2014 at 11:42pm
Works for tablets only.

The lonely wanker thought this was coming. Look bitch no flat sides. Hah

They're not releasing the same 4" because their may not be anymore updates for this one which has came far enough for that and some people want bigger (I know it's obvious but just a reason).

Have you ever tried to jerk off in bed, keeping your phone in one hand and second doing pleasure things. This is something what iPhone offers perfectly :-) Ive tried this with my nokia lumia 920... you will feel the difference, trust me. Because you will surely need both your hands if you would like to fast forward boring scenes in your favorite porn movie :D :D Guys with Samsung S4 S5 S6 and galaxy notes they can't do this things !!! Only in Texas "Bigger means better!" not here! Who needs bigger phone? Only those with small penises :-)

Nerd without a girlfriend hhh
Senketsu - January 23, 2014 at 5:32pm
Lol, so basically Apple should hold down with bigger screen sizes just so you can fap easier?
Senketsu - January 23, 2014 at 5:33pm
But I gotta hand it to him, it's really well made for browsing porn in bed XD
samet65 - January 23, 2014 at 5:44pm
lol!!! all of u r newbs!!!! porn is best watched using a projector on the wall bigger is better!!!!
Mr. Pun - January 23, 2014 at 6:15pm
#Senketsu... "you gotta HAND it to him"?!? Too funny. :-)
Austin633 - January 23, 2014 at 6:41pm
That was classic. I'll keep my 5S for the wifi at my house and get the new iPhone for a phone. YES!!!!
Youneverknow - January 23, 2014 at 6:48pm
"Nerd" without girlfriend. You may not think about it, but your wife may complain one day about having trouble to sit when the official reason is because she met a nerd at work and afterwork has been painful... You don't know drinking your bud in front of your TV.

Actually i guess Im little bit older than most of the people here, i wrote this comment to prevent any "samshit" comments, that "Apple is copying" someone etc. This webpage is starting to be full of stupid comments like this so sorry guys. But it doest matter. What I've tried to mention here, was something else. There are many reasons why small form factor is better, yes this could be one of those. ;-) but I really miss my iPhone 4 ... it was ideal phone to be handled with one hand. I'm starting to have problems to reach top of the screen on my iPhone 5s with my thumb already and I don't think that i have small hands. I know that most of people (you) will appreciate bigger screens. I don't. I've tried many phones, my company phone is Nokia Lumia 920 ... if you place those phones close together you will recognize just little difference. if you pick it up and will try to use it with one hand, you will find many difficulties. Not mentioning SG4, or NOTE... That's like to make a call from my Nexus 7. :-( really stupid. I'm talking about phones. If you need bigger screen go and grab your iPad then, or buy a samsung with s-pen. I'm just starting to dislike the way how Apple is acting. :-( I can imagine that they are trying to eat more from huge mobile market pie. But as Steve Jobs said once : "Everyone will drive the car, but some of us will need a truck!"... have a truck then. I don't care. Apple was for me like a Porsche was for most people, something special, something unique, keeping design for many years, clear and readable, having just few car models for sale. Apple presented me their things that I will like them, and I actually did. Now it seems like Apple is controlled by stakeholders. Like Porsche is controlled by VW concern. Even a Porsche started to make more cars, bigger SUVs, something like bigger coupes, just for one reason, to make their stakeholders happy, not to make us happy! I still love Apple, and Porsche. But I would never purchase Cayene (wish i could have that money at least), neither bigger iPhone. Hope I made your day more funny with my comment. So good luck with whatever you prefer. I would appreciate iPhone 4 with new hardware and Liquidmetal body. :-) and maybe something special. :-) Anyway.

Austin can I have the 5s or anyone who has a space gray planning to give it away.
JustSomeGuy - January 23, 2014 at 11:30pm
That's interesting. I don't need to jerk off since I have someone but wouldn't it be easier with an iPad equipped with a proper case? You can see it much better and wouldn't have to hold it.
