I don't think 4 inch is that much cool as many iphone lovers makes it out to be. They justify it only because they have no other options lol. I'm using a 4.3 size phone and frankly, its only good as and until i look onto bigger phones. 4.7 size is awesome and Moto has proved it could be pretty comfortable also. 4 is just too short.. i mean 1 cm less and you are straight into 3 inch bracket lol. Sounds uncool. Actually, it is uncool.
We know that the staff from Consumer Report wrote the news on their iPhones.

don't understand me wrong but in this "complex" world simple things are the most valuable (and durable)
Note: if u can't see on your iPhone, u have the chance to zoom in any size u want to read.Smaller screen size is the best and ok for the palm. I can see clearly from my iPhone 5 with 4" display. Any thing bigger than 4 inches display is a phablet not an ideal phone.

If you don't want to do it, buy a Nokia 101, as it allows a lot of communication... Of course, most people buy smartphones for status, mainly (but not only) people who buy iPhones... And I say this not as a hater, but as someone who works in this business and sells phones...

Well, the reason for the iPhone being small is that the iPhone is a phone (that also can act as a general purpose computer). The other devices are general purpose computers (that also can act as a phone). Besides, the space for a bigger display on the iPhone is already occupied - by the Home button.
AnonD-977, 18 Oct 2013When I want a large screen I'll use my retina iPad, my S4 is tiny beside it. I can use all ... moreyes, I use iPad for serious work - it's perfect. phones (iPhones) must stay in practical dimensions - the main purpose of every phone is communication, not taking pictures, playing games, etc. for me iPhone 4 is ideal and I know what i'm talking about.
On a iPhone you can't send one only email with multiple and seperate Word, Excel, PFD, jpeg, GPS link, mP3, vCard etc etc attachments. It all has to be done on seperate individual emails.
That's not a smartphone...that' a DUMBPHONE!
But, but, but...iPhone has a shiny logo and it does not frighten me say the fanbois!

When we're out sitting, my wife complains about her iPhone 5's small screen and look at me reading e-mail from my Note II. I'll ask her why she did not bring her iPad. She'll reply, "it's heavy to carry."

The only MAJOR factor for android sales is IT'S CHEAPER PRICE...!
It's because... moreFrom where I live, Note 3 is priced more than an iPhone 5s and still it outsells the iPhone!
duden, 17 Oct 2013Hm, at 12" distance most people with good vision cannot resolve more that about 350. So y... moreI don't have rare vision... I just look at the pictures and scrutinize them. If you just glance at a pic for only a few seconds, you won't really see the difference. In my case, I was actually trying to see the difference 441 ppi makes over 326 ppi. That is, I was looking at the pics with detail in mind. Once you know what to look for, it becomes obvious thereafter.
Also, all that crap about Retina Display and 326ppi being the amount at which nobody can resolve individual pixels...that's just marketing. If I look and know what I'm looking for, I can still see individual pixels.
