Just one mans opinion.
Hard to back it up too when you take into account that for the last few years Apple have sold out of every iPhone they've made.
It's possible and likely that they could've sold millions more this year if they could produce them in time.
Pretty impressive how they've managed to ramp up production this much each year, but hard to measure whether this years is more popular or just better stock levels.
Will be the same too (hard to tell if more popular or just better stock) if a big screen one is ever produced, unless they come out with two flagship models with exactly the same specs except screen size.Assertion 2:
There is a pent up demand for a iPhone with a larger screen
I can provide proof...
I have a receipt for a Galaxy S4 that I bought when my iPhone died.
I can link to a tonne of articles and reviews that say this.
I have work colleagues that have gone from iPhone to a bigger screen android and say they like it better because of the bigger screen.
I have other work colleagues who have said that very same thing: "I might wait until they come out with one with a bigger screen", or "if they don't come out with a bigger screen I'm going with an Android". (That one since changed his mind after talking with others who went to the dark side and regretted it).
I would be keen on one. I liked the size if the S4 but sold it 'cause I just didn't like the way they do the home screens, the double ups on built in apps, the smaller range wifi, the GPS bug that slows down lock on time, the lack of compatibility with work computers (xp) to download photos, and about 13 other things I could go on about...
This is why I'm happy and looking forward to the 5s.
I am not gullible to marketing, or stupid. I spend a lot of time researching - reading positive and negative reviews and opinions before I buy gadgets. I just like something different to you. That's all. And I'm not the only one. Whether Apple ever make one is the next thing. There's been enough hints though that it's seeming likely they will one day.Edited by iRon man - 9/23/13 at 3:37pm
