the home button on the side looks awkward. i hope the two screen sizes will have the same price

I've got an iPhone 5 for my personal number, and a Galaxy S as my secondary phone. I can use both equally well, but I just like iPhone for its usability, it beats the Galaxy by miles.

Albeit you're a lame WP user who didn't know how technology run so fast. Every single smartphone on the next few years will have its own AWESOOOME features. Just enjoy what the world offers to u.

Yes I agree one of the best features that I can't let go of my iPhone despite its limitations is, its just plain simple. I do have both OS and yes, android has a lot of features which makes it good, but sad to say it makes the OS cluttered or its not pleasing for the eye.
Both OS rocks! Because I use my iPhone for my work and Android for downloading movies via torrent which iOS devices can't. That only says that there is no perfect OS, but once you have both, you rock! Peace!
That`s it, sammy should sue crapple for copy big screen. Desperate move by crapple I think.
apple with big display??
so u need 1 hand to hold the phone and the other hand to press the "Back" button on the top left corner?? HAHAHA
It's a good design moving the home button to the side which allows the screen space to grow bigger.
For end user sake. Please release it already. Its heavy to carry iPad mini & iPhone 5, just to get big screen & phone function.... Waiting for that 4.7 inch with retina display. The Size is every body sweetpot.
With with more devices capturing fingerprint and retina information the NSA will have everyone on file, no crime needed.

I hate all the massive phones, not being able to text with one hand using these mega sized rubbish phones... 5 inch + samsungs, htc etc is a massive pain. strong design change from apple.

That's why iPhone works so well compared to WP or Android.
My dad just go a WP and I gave up on it. You can't customise anything on the device, or at least not easily. It's anything but intuitive.
My friends all have Android, and it's got too many features. It's very cluttered and plain ugly if you ask me. All of my friends use the phone as a phone, they don't use widgets or any of the special features the S4 offers.
AnonD-142922, 03 Jan 2014AGAIN same design ? for god sake CHANGE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!You haven't SEEN the new design yet, WTF?
A bigger screen is much needed as the iPhone 5S should've been the iPhone 6 with a bigger screen. It's technically larger than the iPhone 4 but it's narrow as heck and makes viewing for LONG periods an eye sore, Literally!
It should've been a 5" screen on the iPhone 5S considering the price.
Apple should also do something with both the speakers and telephony features. The speakers on the bottom should be curved to act more like "true" speakers. The telephony features should AGAIN be improved EVERY time as people I speak with STILL have issues hearing me when I use my iPhone 5s.
The screen really needs to be increased to 5" and not just in height but also in width. It's too hard to view online content on such a small screen. The mobile version of websites just SUX so it's better to view the actual Desktop versions, whenever available. Really hate it when ONLY the mobile sites are used on the iPhone and NO option setting is available to view as a Desktop setting, which the Android OS has for many of its various browsers.
Lastly, Apple will drive more people away with its high elitist pricing and closed OS and no ability for users to add external storage capacity. It's too much nowadays as Android and Win8 phones offer better Lower prices, a more open OS and swappable micro cards for external expansion, even though the Android OS is still buggy!
