5.2 willbe too big screen size, alongith this a variant of 4.8 or 5 should be launched similar to HTC One Mini
I applaud OEMS that go way out to the extreme specs, it is better that way that phones become like laptops where there is minor bumps in sofware and only the chipset cpu and gpu improve. rather go all the way than stretch out like Apple who greedily milks there consumers.
Hey guys don't panic, it's just the panel not the finished product. 0.2 is very much unnoticeable.

You are forgetting about the DEAL BREAKER issue that is burn-in. All amoled displays have this issue and show it after even two to three weeks if you have bad luck. The pattern is burnt to the display and there is no way back o around it. That in itself is unacceptable for a high end display.
Ontopic: I really don't think HTC should increase the screen size. Anything bigger than 5inch is really impractical.
I expect companies to release mini version of their flagship without ccompromising on the specs sheet, like the Xperia Z3 compact.
I feel sorry for HTC, they're always stuck in the middle of problems. They should just go the iPhone way and not care about what other OEM's are doing.
Very Bad design by hTC.... I will never buy if they launch with this design.... U have ur own style, carry that.... front upper and lower speakers looks so different and rich and which is none of the other company have apart from spice which obviously copied u.... please do not change that or bring somthing new, which customers accept easily.
Ok 5.2 already, so the trend from 2014 continues into 2015, dont make anything new, just take what you have, apply the rolling pin and voila its thinner and bigger and the sheep are happy, even when it has quad A7 or quad A53, because who need real performance as long as its quad core?
Sad to see that the ignorance will follow us into next year and no manufacturer is listening to those who want a reasonable size without getting low specs, Sony managed to fool a few who were gullible enough to think that the SoC is the only thing that need to be high end with the Z3c, but the rest are still waiting and still all we see are severely overpriced midrangers (Galaxy Alpha, Z3 Compact) and flattened phablets.

A... moreYou're the stupid one, 5" is for little kids because they have tiny hands, I have the 6.4" Sony Z Ultra and that's nothing even though I have small hands. You must feel really stupid wanting a 5" phone. I can't imagine having a phone smaller than mine although I would accept anything around 6" if it had unbelievable specs but sorry anything below 6" is completely embarrassing. Remember you're the stupid one.
Looks like the large bezels are gone so this could mean a large screen but smaller overall unit. Interesting

lcd is using back light which grey coats each and every color. It used to look on in 2009, but now in 2014 I get cancer merely by looking at people's low standards. It's as if people heavily used vhs into the DVD Era.
Backlight is an old technology that needs to die.
[deleted post]Of course I always buy Samsung devices. What do you mean unnatural lol? Are you trying to say that LCDs that can only light up with the backlight are natural? Also, have you ever seen anything really black on your LCD screen? No you haven't! Because LCDs can't produce black colour if you don't turn the phone completely off))
