jt, 23 Jan 2014Whether you like apple or not, they are going to sell a lot of these phones. Right, if it is about $400, lots android fans may want to buy one.
Apple thinks that what makes android sales high is only screen size , Anyways after I saw the 5s prices , I think the price for the smallest size one 16GB unlocked will be around 800$ , while the Note 4 will be one month old and S5 will be about 8 months old and both will be at a lower price than the cheapest new iPhone with higher capabilities , I think Apple should stick to their 4" screen size
Apple no longer has a choice over the matter. For them to stay on top they need to cater to consumer wants. The biggest complaint I've heard from iPhone owners is screen size. Either way, I still won't buy another iPhone, but it's a good move for them.
So it would seem that 4" is not longer the preferred size by apple, sure this is just a rumour, but it would make sense to increase the size, even by half inch!
Will still never own an iPhone as they are far to restrictive and overpriced, but this is a good move at least.
jobyjoe, 23 Jan 2014Apple, your about 2 years late to the game...Yes they are already late but first on pricing. Price is the pride of apple. No matter what physical appearance, specs it will be always overprice.
vhh, 23 Jan 2014i haven't use iphone long ago.. i like ios but i hate small screen. 4.8 screen side is the one... moresame here. android is gr8 but change is good as well.
4.8-5" is ideal i dont like the phablet size "bigger than 5.2" i hope apple do it right i used iPhone4 3 years ago it was a good phone. but Android grew and became better in my opinion but if the size change is true ill give apple a chance as i use Ipad Air now
the top+bottom bezel is 1.63" on the 4s and 1.39" on the 5s.
if it stays 1.39" on the 5.7"er then the total height of the 5.7"er will be 162mm which is 10mm more than the Note 3.
Next iPhone 6 will have 4.7 not 4.8 but I don't know about 5.7. IPhone 6 Retina display 768X1024.
I suggest apple manufacturer to design full all 4 corners to be stainless steel as iphone 4 & 4s ...thickness 6mm 4.8 inch screen size and battery life longer than existing 5s and of course new advance features
I had the first gen iPhone, but defected to android as soon I realized how closed off the OS was. Apple have come a long way since the first iPhone, and the only thing that's been holding me back from getting the iPhone 5s, was the screen. If Apple manage to keep the bezel size to a minimum, overhaul the UI and maintain the superb build quality, they will really have a home run on their hands.
No doubt iphone 5s is complete package of smartphone having attractive design, fast processor and highly appreciated phone in global mobile market and keep hope next phone 6 will bring new more features and 4.8 inch is perfect size so I hope everybody love it but if size goes bigger than 4.8 inch then can't say anything...
jobyjoe, 23 Jan 2014Apple, your about 2 years late to the game...Following what the other crowd has been selling for years now is "innovation" as per the Apple bible.
I'm trying to estimate a price for such a phone ... I'm sure it will be a wow factor
Anonymous, 23 Jan 2014Its gonna be a mass amnesia of unprecedented dimension.They will explain how their 5" 4 by 3 screen is perfect than most others. And that the competitors are doing it the wrong way.
