I think that all apple needs right now is to increase the screen size and make a revamped ui for the next iPhone

Extra storage that is extortionately priced won't sell any more. People are getting wise to their rip off scams.

All Apple has to do for the 5s is simple really, Expand memory, Expand storage, Better camera, catch the camera software up much like Samsung and HTC have with Zoe. Use the new battery that South Koreans are currently devolping that are saying will produce 3x battery life. Go back to the 4s shell with the same screen, but thin up the bezel. Add a LED notification. This recipe churns out a 5s that would sell more even then the 5

If they don't come up with a 4.3 inch screen or more I'll not buy it.

Htc one has got a 469 ppi, but does it matter ?So the article basically points out the incompetence of Apple. Even a year later than everybody else they cant come up with a proper full HD, is it ?

The exact DPI is irrelavant to a degree now. Unless Apple come down off their high and mighty cloud and give people the screen sizes they actually want, rather than what Apple tries to dictate to them they can look forward to losing more sales. Perhaps people would actually like a choice. Wow! Now that would be revolutionary for Apple. I know an Apple "Die-Hard" who is seriously thinking of ditching the iPhone for a Samsung Galaxy S4 just to get the bigger screen size. Even he admits as a self confessed fan-boy that the next iPhone needs to be something special. An iPhone 5S that is only marginally different to the 5 won't cut it any longer and I think even they realise now, that their court room antics don't do them any favours either.

Anything above 440ppi will look the same.

Apple needs to increase its screen size like 5.5 inch first as its screen its far too small for comfortable browsing

The next iPhone with 5 or 6" inch screen display will be so much perfect, no more irrelevant with today's standard screen display spec.
