But good news they finally decided to pick up a bigger screen.

now there is one less cons of iphone over android. lol. i use samsung since forever but this news are actually very exciting. as long as they keep the ppi counts. iphone4s-5s always have a great screen, but the size doesn't do it justice.

Sorry but wait few decades and print your self a new brain !!! People who dont buy iphone think with there brain and dont waist there full month work for one phone or leash it for few years. If apple would make a phone that have better specs then my lumia 520 and with same price tag i would think about buying it. But as this will never happen then i really dont care much. As the price for iphone in here outside of the AMERICA. Iphone 5S 32GB 799 euro and iphone 5s 64GB 899 euro. I bet when iphone 6 comes out with the 4.7" screen then the 32GB version would cost at least 899 euro or even 999 euro. So please convince me to buy it. If i use phone for making calls and sending text messages and sometimes use gps. Why should i buy a phone that is only pretty for that amount of money ?
What can iphone do better for me then my lumia 520 for my needs ? Iphone is only pretty thing and thats it and btw you need to cover it up with plastic or rubber that makes it bigger and is not so pretty anymore and just for the reasone that the phone itself would stay pretty.

going for the large screens will take the uniqueness away from iphone...
4'3 screen would be better than enough..
others who want a large screen go for the ipad...!!!

Another thing that on the Phablet range most people buy the Note as it really uses its size for things like the stylus and writing notes , that most Phablets don't offer and if Apple did the same , Samsung will be pleased to meet them again in a court

Samsung Top Flagships are not cheap but they offer a great range of functionality that matches their price , see that's the problem with Apple , you don't get as much as you paid , if you like iPhone that's fine , but please don't compare it to the masters of the smartphone game
by the way , just because Apple made a lawsuit against Samsung , doesn't mean that Samsung is the only company competing with Apple , there is other Androids Nokia Lumia's Windows Phones , once you leave iPhone you will find out about them
I also want to mention that ,
iPod nano is the best mp3/mp4 player in the world
iPad was the best tablet till the Note 10.1 2014 came out

Apple fans may seem like hypocrites when it comes to screen size but I think it is because they never had anything bigger and didn't know what they were missing when they tried it. Every time a bigger screen came out for Android, I would think it was perfect and that anything bigger was too much. I was wrong

Whats the use of useless products for the use of fame and fashion fantasy? whats the us eof simplicity when theres zero productivity? No benefit for over expensive small fones with itunes stuck forever like we are begging to itunes for us. even if apple continue like this for the next 100 years it will be same like now.

And I am not talking about everyone who has an iPhone , I am talking about people who buy new iPhone every year as if it is the only phone in the world

pfft..eons ago.. ifans show contempt on large screen size and trolls around saying "what's the sense of having a big screen for a phone?" or "phablets are crazy" and such. they have a bible saying that the size of the iphone is the only standard size for a smartphone. Now they need to rewrite their bible... delete some previous comments and blogs like they never said it and make it look like it was not a big deal. then after that.. they'll be raving about how innovative and smart their gods in cupertino on deciding to increase the size of the iphone's screen.
some would be to afraid to comment since they might have just recently posted a comment about screen size before they got to read this news and would hide until the topic is already cold and is safe to troll around again.

Well, yes, I'd like more battery backup, but it's better than any iFeaturePhone will ever be. It's got multi-window multitasking, a file manager, non-separated notification and toggle areas, a better battery, screen, CPU, camera, recharge time, all for considerably less than that hugely overpriced featurephone.
