 You are exactly right and I have mentioned the same thing many times here as well. Apple have a lot of very smart people and they realize even with the current iPhone if you spend more than a few seconds doing a task chances are you will switch to 2 hand mode because it is more comfortable and the index finger is more precise. One handed use is no longer the "end all be all" it once was. Since people spend a lot more time looking at the display than they did years ago...
The closer we get to the release date the less likely it appears that Apple will continue with a 4" display. Yes, they will likely keep the "C" version of the iPhone as a 4" model but it will use last years parts and be sold as the cheaper low-end option. I just don't see Apple continuing to produce a high-end current model iPhone at 4" since the demand will likely die down once a larger version is released. The larger iPhone(s) will be associated with the newest specs and...
Yeah and I never said otherwise. You were the one that brought in the argument saying Apple doesn't go to war on specs. Apple will make improvements as they always do based on the needs of Apple customers and any technical or price hurdles. I have a 64GB iPhone and I am not even a heavy user of photos or videos and my iPhone is nearly full. After 7 years I think it is about time Apple introduced a 128GB option. 
And I am sure you were not alone but guess what, that RAZR you spent hours looking at also had one of the largest screen at the time. It was considered small due to how thin it was but when it came to dumb phones the display size was not small. If you really wanted small you would have chosen the Sony T616. Your RAZR was a phbalet compared the the Sony. 
 On the CPU I agree. Apple offers a lower clocked but far more efficient CPU. But we are talking about storage. How exactly can you justify Apple sticking with the exact same storage especially now that the camera and video needs far more storage than than the iPhone 3's camera? Are you suggesting Apple never upgrade their storage and if that is not your position then when should they? 2016, 2018? 
You were right in an earlier post. Apple works in 2 year cycles. At least they have since the iPhone 3. Unless the iPhone 6 introduces some radical new display technology never before seen on any other device, that will prove the technology was available earlier. Was it available in large enough quantity last year? Who knows.. Apple touted one handed use as as a paradigm that no longer seems very important to most people or indeed app developers. Take a look at most of the...
If the iPhone 6 in addition to including a larger display improves upon battery life to a noticeable degree, includes an A8 and doubles storage to 32/64/128 it will be touted as the most revolutionary iPhone since the very first one. Pretty much all of that is likely with the exception of more storage. I haven't heard any rumors concerning whether they will stick with 16/32/64 or double that. Now that Android phones are beginning to offer  64GB and also allow an additional...
Most people didn't spend hours staring at the display of their Motorola Razr which is why smaller was a good thing back then.  People now spend a lot of time staring at the screen on smartphones which is why bigger is a good thing now. 
I have a 5s I bought with subsidy that I was able to unlock very easily with a phone call to Sprint. I also unlocked my 4s and sold it on Ebay as unlocked to a guy in UAE for $370 even though I paid $199 for it. But I take your point about the changing subsidy models. Sprint Framily plans for example require you to pay full price but also allow you to pay in installments over 24 months with 0% interest. Once it is paid off your monthly plan is reduced to just the plan...
Not really. It is the same 5 or 10 people that are just prolific posters and every single story about a new larger iPhone they chime in talking about their desire for another 3.5" or to keep a 4". I wonder how many people really would prefer a 4" iPhone to a 4.7" when they are side by side. Probably not that many especially since it likely will not be much larger in the actual dimensions to a 4".  In survey after survey of iPhone owners larger sizes are preferred. Apple...
