Anecdotal evidence is just that, a very small poll sample if you will. But at the same time it is amazing how accurate it can sometimes be. Without fail when I ask my Android owning friends, family, coworkers why they chose an Android phone over an iPhone they all give the same answer. "The screen size". They don't talk about open source, or a hatred for Apple, or any of the other common talking points you hear by forum pundits on both sides. They simply like the larger...
Well this guy tried all the things in this thread  and some other options not listed and it still did not resolve his problem.    http://adampash.com/how-i've-tried-to-fix-imessage/ Everything I've tried to stop my texts from disappearing into iMessage I’ve gotten many, many helpful emails and tweets with tips for how to fix myiMessage purgatory problem (people are great). Unfortunately, I’ve already tried everything that people have suggested (so far, at...
Because no one cares about that point besides you. You keep harping on it as if someone is invested in defending that theory. Who cares why they went big, they did. Whether it was because of the size of first gen LTE radios or the fact that they needed more battery life or the daughter of the CEO of Samsung asked him to make a larger one it really doesn't matter.    P.S. Wrong HD2 above. That was the...
There are many frivolous lawsuits without any merit but this is not one of them. Read what this guy went through. http://adampash.com/imessage-purgatory/
 Who are you even arguing with? I don't think anyone said otherwise. Apple or any other company could have easily made a 5 or 6 inch phone before LTE as well if they wished. Any more historical facts you want to point out for us Captain Obvious? 
 How does that disprove anything. You can always find exceptions and outliers to a rule but generally speaking companies went larger to accommodate the large and power hungry LTE chips. They needed the extra space for the radio and a larger battery. Of course they could have made larger phones before that if they wanted to and no one said otherwise. 
They wouldn't even need to do that. It is true that one huge impetus for large displays was the 1st gen of LTE radios that were big and power hungry. But the current and future generations are a lot smaller and more power efficient. Samsung and others accidentally stumbled on to the fact that consumers liked larger displays because they had to make them that big to accommodate LTE radios. Apple waited until the iPhone 5 to release an LTE phone. There are already plenty of...
 Wow the backsliding began a lot sooner than I thought. How many times have you said it was unusable, and that it would not sell, and that no one wanted a larger iPhone, or so many other complaints. So now you are suddenly for it? 
Exactly. From your link above: This is still a market segment led by Samsung, but the trend is unmistakably toward larger-screen handsets at the high end of the market. It held a 44% share of devices with displays of 5" and above, and 53% if the view is narrowed to look at 5.5"-plus displays,’ said Canalys Analyst Jessica Kwee. ‘But many other vendors, such as Lenovo, Huawei, LG and Sony, have also achieved significant volumes in this space with products at the top end of...
 So now I am part of the Samsung PR assault plan? I use an iPhone 5s. Apparently pointing out a real world example of a person that plans to switch to an iPhone as soon as a larger one is released somehow angered you. My doctor is not fictional. The 4" iPhone might have been the best selling smart phone of all time but that was because of iOS and the quality of the hardware not because people thought 4" was just the right size. I bought my 5s in spite of the 4" screen not...
