The way to discredit the poll as biased in favor of SMALL screen is to note that it does not even have an option where iPhone has the same size, but the screen is 4"+ which is geometrically feasible up to 4.6".

These polls have been done quite a few times but the problem is there's never enough people that take them. I wish Apple would send out questioners, that is the only way we are going to find out for sure. When CNET did theirs back in January, 61% wanted a 4" or larger screen though. I think you'll find this to be true with every poll. The market it so flooded with large screen phones I'm sure your average iPhone user has size envy. We will just have to wait to see what Apple has for us but I would bet money that the next iPhone will be larger if not an additional model.

As JeffDM succinctly points out a self-selected poll is inherently untrustworthy.

I don't think that's a big deal. You may consider that option feasible, but I don't think it's a realistic option.

Maybe it's also worth pointing out that the people claiming a mania for big screens seem to be talking about Android type 4.5" and up, handset size be damned. Whereas that poll shows the vast majority of respondents, insofar as they might like a bigger screen, want it within the current iPhone,s envelope or "slightly larger."

Which comports with what most of the "small screen" folks are saying-- that they have nothing against more screen real estate, but not at the expense of jumbo sized handsets.

Still hope that Apple will come up with some magic as they did with every prior release.
Otherwise what would be the "magic" feature of the next iPhone? I do not think LTE alone can be considered as one nowadays.

We'll see. I liked some of the "iPhone 5" concepts. I think somewhere up to 4" screen and slightly increased length and width is reasonable, beyond that, people increasingly lose out on other human factors considerations, notably, single handed operation and pocketability.

All this talk of how Apple must increase the display size takes away from what I think is more compelling; what will be in the 6th gen iPhone?

Double the storage? I don't think so. Leave that for 2013 after the iPad gets it.
LTE? I think so, and using the 28nm lithography of the MDM9615. That means no need to have a huge phone for LTE and good battery life.
Cortex-A15 based systems? I think so. The time seems right.
Better GPU? Perhaps not drastically because it won't be until next year that Img Tech is ready. I also don't see a need for more cores.
Newer battery tech? I don't see any evidence of that.
Higher pixel camera? It's been a trend but is it really necessary? Better optics all around.
New case design? I think so. 2 years with the same design seems to make sense.
Better display? Not higher resolution but better display seems likely.
Better mics and speakers? I hope so.
NFC? This is probably the only place I think Apple could show everyone how it should be done.
