I agree. Can't imagine Jobs doping something stupid like this.
OK, so the top bezel maybe/could/should be a little smaller. The bottom's size is supposedly constrained by the home button. Oh well, who knows!
On the other hand, , , , all the dismay over the larger form factor may be justified by us as being the "Apple FanBoys" that we are, , , , . LOL
But, , , , a lot of people that I know who have Galaxies certainly got them because they were somewhat cheaper than the iPhones. But, , , , and, now that they have their Galaxies, they do not want an iPhone, at any price, because the iPhone is "too small"!
We certainly do not use our cell phones today like we did twenty years ago, but remember when "smaller/smallest" was all the rage?
The glass already has plastic protective sheet on it which makes it distort and foggy. You can see a couple air bubbles.
I think my wife's iPhone 4S looks weird (particularly the screen which looks so small) compared to my iPhone 5, so I'm inclined to agree with you.
You method is more in line with how it should be done, Using the know size, scale it properly to that size and measure everything else in the picture. The only concerns is the fact the original picture was taken off angle so their are parallax issue you some time have to worry about, but you estimate is closer than the first guys attempt.
I don't get that. I don't understand why a designer would waste so much panel space at the top. What's the supposed payoff?
Some components obviously already reside behind the display, so the stuff at the top could, too. It's a design choice -- it could just as easily house a larger screen in the same height and width by making it slightly thicker and losing the "end zones" at the top and bottom.
