This is the optimum size for smartphones…
If Apple would only get off its high horse and jump ahead of the competition instead of continuing to fall behind and playing catch-up.
Why do you people exist?

Your reality is what reality calls fantasy.
The ability to customize the experience is extremely limited.
That's the idea, I think. Apple knows a little better than each individual person how HCI works. Hideous themes, stupid reorganization, and blurring the lines between functionality are all welcome in the jailbreak world, if you're so inclined.
In addition, the iOS updates have inflicted a great deal of pain. Apple knowingly inflicted the pain and instead of allowing us to roll back to a working version, they forced us to wait for another update.
What update is "broken"? What "pain" could possibly have been Apple's fault, given that YOU have to do the update?
Further contributing to the problem is that bugs in the software resulted in measurable company losses.
What "bugs", what "losses"… is there even a point to question your FUD?
At the end it is a simple decision that will not be measured by specs alone.
Which is why the iPhone stays on top, despite Android spec-whoring.
That said, Apple has lost my confidence with the recent actions and the Galaxy IV will replace the iPhones in both my home and company.
Could you tell us what company so we know not to do business with it? I, at least, don't want my information stored on a platform that unsafe.
