Wow wow... a bigger screen. What an innovation!! Apple is the best. Now, all that Apple fan need to do is grow a bigger palm to maintain that one handed operation.
And they should start to pray & hope Apple don't charge the price more for the bigger screen LOL
Sample price forecast: 4" (iPhone 5S) $749, 4.7" $899, 5.7" $1099 :P
M and M, 20 Jan 2014Can you guys complaining about the retina resolution actually distinguish between that and a 6... moreI can see the individual pixels, but I have ultra perceptive eyes, according to my Optometrist. My vision uncorrected is 20/20, and corrected is 20/15.
Good one apple.. Long waited .. 4.7 will be a perfectly sized phone. I owns Note 3 and iphone 5 and i love them both. Definitely gonna by this .
RKM, 20 Jan 2014We should laugh at them. 720p is backdated too.when iphone 6C rolls out its going to be 1080p.. simple Apple business tactics.. yet the sheep will line up in front of the stores as per usual
batman , 20 Jan 2014and they did one model only for people that want it and is a cheaper option, the still had the... moreNo no, they made a plastic model for the same old price and RAISED the price of the aluminium iphone 5S, atleast in europe.
Vino31, 20 Jan 2014In 2012, Apple says plastic phones and over 4 inch screens are cheap. Now look at them.and they did one model only for people that want it and is a cheaper option, the still had the aluminum body to they flag ship, and if the enlarge the srceen is by customer requests they are giving the extra mile that samsung does not, they still are making cheap plastic device
M and M, 20 Jan 2014Can you guys complaining about the retina resolution actually distinguish between that and a 6... moreIn fact you can def see the difference in pictures and text. I was actually suprised to see still that much difference between a Iphone and a HTC One.
Apple Science says you cant see more, but REAL science says otherwise.
They double resolution in x and y-axis and by coincidence it seems to be the 'retina limit'
Seems very unlikely to be the truth, and 1080p phones proved they were wrong. Apple is just a boss in marketing
Go to a shop, look for a 1080p screen on 5inch, open your favorite website on that device and your iphone and see the difference, and you dont need the best eyes to see a difference
Stephen Bobs, 20 Jan 2014Why 4.7" display? Apple should make it as 5" display. iPhone with 5" display... moreThat's where they are heading I think. In the end, consumer demand has forced them into it. They are usually very good at making phones thin enough, so a 4.7 inches with bezels that are this enough should be a winner.
In 2012, Apple says plastic phones and over 4 inch screens are cheap. Now look at them.
Why 4.7" display?
Apple should make it as 5" display.
iPhone with 5" display will be a killer phone for at least 3 to 5 years!
Ofcourse, make it 20 to 30% thinner and lighter than iPhone 5S.
Can you guys complaining about the retina resolution actually distinguish between that and a 600 ppi screen??? Because science says you can't and logic says you only use higher density as an e-peen to boast your phone is better, but in fact it only makes your phones heavier and thicker because of the huge batteries needed to feed uselessly dense displays and the quad cores needed to keep them performing well.
Very unlikely that they will maintain the resolution while enlarging the screen. Scaling a 16:9 display to 4.7 inches would make the phone too tall and narrow. More likely is a 4:3 like the iPads, which would add width while keeping good height.
