wake up, people! Apple's innovation, or anything close to it, has dried up. It'll probably have the same dual-core CPU, or slightly overclocked, and maybe a 12MP camera. That's an iPhone upgrade. And people say the S4 was no upgrade over the S3.

You know this can be advance over others too? because just like you said, everyone else doing those huge phones.

If you dont want those huge phones but still want flagship device, you choose iPhone. So yeah, doesnt look bad at all for Apple. Also if they sell atleast almost 30 million iPhones every q there's clearly still big markets for smaller smartphone. So why change something which clearly works so well?

OMG Apple are going to try something different? A bigger screen! You think that maybe they would have thought of this sooner seeing as just about every other company out there is banging out 5" screens. Maybe a refreshed look too. Mind you I will still never buy one, the Apple is to sour for my taste.

No-one doesnt want to see internals of any phone, except repairers etc. I know inner beauty is important for human, but whaattt... :D

Apple doesnt have removable battery because they want the device to be solid and feel tight and doesnt want removable parts.

Not like for example samsung plastic phones which you drop and then collecting different parts from the floor.

Your opened iPhone doesnt look like the phone in that picture... OMG :D

LMFAO delay to increase screen size, anyone that believes this FUD is an idiot, something that seems as simple as an increase in screen size means a COMPLETELY new product and will be easily over a year delayed. Not happening it's that simple.

4.3" screen is best suited for the mobile. Hope for retina eye display.

Now that's Apple: Good looking on the outside, but s*cks on the inside.

That picture shows how cheap iphone quality is made. I mean, people tend to look on the outer side of the phone nowadays. Have you ever wondered why Apple don't want a removable battery? well guess what, because they don't want people to see the internal side of the iPhone.


Not a fanboy of any brand, but compare the other internal phones from iphone, you will see which has the quality. People should open their eyes..
