There have been numerous rumors claiming that Apple is working on an iPhone with a larger screen to compete with phones from competitors like Samsung, but Tim Cook's comments during today's Q2 financial results call indicate that the company is not quite ready to make a phone with a 5-inch screen.
My view continues to be that iPhone 5 has the best display in the industry. We always strive to create the very best display. Some customers value large screen size. Others value other factors such as resolution, color quality, white balance, reflectivity, power consumption, compatibility of apps, and portability. Our competitors have made some significant tradeoffs in many of these areas to ship a larger display. We would not ship a larger display iPhone while these tradeoffs exist.
It appears that Apple will not be releasing an iPhone with a larger screen until the company's manufacturing partners can supply it with a 5-inch screen that meets its demanding criteria.

Yoli, 16 May 2013I love all things in this Iphone5 but one thing disappointed is about battery life :( Iphone b... moreOk I only have 4s but when had iphone5 and with this 4s battery life does vary day to day..I blame it on network strength which differs wildy whilst out and about..
To really check tho ,,on your day off do this;
Put screen full blast with auto turned off,,switch on wifi and Bluetooth and 3g mode..Play a game over and over or same video over and over and note time till battery is dead and iphone switches off..Dismiss 20% and 10% battery warnings.Then recharge iphone to full and do the same and if you at home doing this in same signal you should get same battery times..
Trouble is we have push email and twitter so some days we get more tweets and emails...Battery is so different between peoples different usage..Battery is the same it just some days you do more things withour realising...I check the time 20-40 times a day and that eeks away at the mA's too..
With 3g/hsdpa and screen taking the biggest battery even if you check your fone its adds up because minimum back light time off is one minute so add this up over the day and the screen could be on another half hour a day which hammers battery..
iphone5 or s4..?? totally confused...
as iphone is iphone.. its a brand..
but samsung has a wave technology in additional 2gb ram and 12megapixel camera....
all confused ... wanna buy d best phone..
pls help.. suggest me ..!!
Well this phone wouldn't be too bad, because it has nice UI, etc, but it is poor quality, indeed only 1 year warranty, plus this is way too overpriced for it's value, there are better products from competition that have better quality, they even sell it for smaller price. So to sum up, a great phone, but not worth it's money, however if you like Apple, you might not have much of a choice.
Anonymous, 14 May 2013the Samsung galaxy s4 is cheaper than iphone5. Iphone5 = dualcore,8mp camera while samsung is... moreWait and see with new Generation of Iphone that beat ur S4....Quadcore but work so slow and stuck, S4 can't compare with iphone5 also

ishvavishva, 15 May 2013Best iphone5 bt battery is little bit low performanceThe battery could do with been higher they have been peddling this battery for years..All they did this time was add 4mA more,whoopy woo don't overdo it.
