Well of course it was inevitable for the iPhone to remain at 4.0 inches, no matter what the screen had to increase at some point. The main concern now is the PRICE. My God, I'm sure you can buy a small car for the iPhone 6

I have lost track of the number of times my friends iphones, sonys (etc) have gone flat and my GN2 or GN3 could still go for another week. Long plane trips, camping trips etc are never a problem.

The truth is that the user should not be allowed to mess with the battery, especially for expensive phones which are considered flagships and should retain some standards in performance and reliability.

The 4.8" size was a hit when the Galaxy S3 was launched in 2012.
It takes them 2yrs to realise that 4.5" to 5.2" is the way to go for smartphones!
And they stubbornly refused to make their battery removable for user replacement or for carrying a backup batt.
As long as the battery remain sealed I will never buy an iphone.
wish it would come out in june so my dad can stop squinting at his iphone 4's tiny screen
I might try my very first iPhone if this rumor is true. What I'm pretty sure is that the upcoming iPhone 6 will be more costly than the usual price release of Apple's smartphone.
lol poor apple..... samsung should just sue for using a big screen besides it was samsung who started all these big screen craze... but i mus say i didnt expect such a big jump i was thinking 4.3 or 4.5... but hey now they in the big screen league sales should be up.. i would advice samsung to stick with 5" cause 4.6 to 5" is the sweet spot.... i'm gonna buy the 6s and not the 6.....
titeo, 23 Jan 2014Wow this is a perfect size that I can use one hand comfortably, lol.Wasn't 4" the perfect size when Apple didn't have larger screen sizes?!?
wooo now i have an ipad, ipad mini, iphone 5s, AND this new iphone 4.8"
So now i can have MORE apps on the screen...or a bigger icon...or something...meh watevs im buying anyways
This will arguably a huge, large, big sales boosting 'innovation'. Sadly this is the truth. When the 5 came it had a slightly bigger(or say taller) display and it became a record breaking seller, then the 5s with 64 bit boosted benchmarks and touchID set another standard. This 6th one will put off few existing iOwners but will bring a far huge wave of new adopters for the bigger screen itself.
Vino31, 23 Jan 2014In 2012, Apple says plastic phones are cheap, and more than 4 inch screens are ridiculous. Now what?Most times these people talk without thinking and now they need to swallow their own words because market demand is 5" and above.

They could've fit a much larger battery in long ago...They choose not to. One they have a sealed off device and non removable battery...that gives more room. Then on op of that they use lithium polymer batteries which can hold higher capacities in smaller more mold-able sizes/shapes...
