DO WANT. I would LOVE a larger iPhone personally. Mobile = bigger is better.
Sick and tired of people only considering their needs and wants like if they were at the centre of the universe. They are quite happy to force others into their world. It is HIGH time Apple makes a 5" plus phone, it can be alongside standard 4" screen or even go back to 3.5" to appease the "smaller the better" brigade, I don't care as long as we are given the choice.

A new bigger iPhone does not mean they will faze out the 4" screen. Two distinct sizes is long overdue for a product that sells in the tens of millions. Your choice will depend on your use case. For people that use it mostly as a phone the 4" is clearly better while those that use it mostly as a pocketable tablet computer would prefer something bigger, maybe much bigger.
A smaller than 4" screen is doubtful to me though (unless a watch). What will of course happen is that the 4" iPhone will get smaller. In fact the iPhone 5/5S is both smaller (in volume) and lighter than the iPhone 4/4S which had a smaller screen.
I really hope Apple minimizes the number of iPhone sizes. I got a 5c and I've been very disappointed in the lack cases and peripherals available for it. There's lots of 5/5s things around, but very few for the 5c.
Stop the FUD; I want to get off.
people wanting to keep the status quo, limiting choice, and forcing others in their comfort zone…
Enough of this nonsense.
I'm fairly certain analysts have already said that Apple is too late to the party with large screen displays for the iPhone. Samsung has already done every size display possible, so Apple won't be able to bring anything new to the table. In other words, the iPhone is behind the curve of innovation and has become merely a follower of Samsung, the real innovator.
If this is all you have to say on the subject, you are the one who should be silenced and kicked. Actually, as a punishment, you should be made to follow Windows centric sites only. Get lost
which nonsense? there are so many to choose from your posts
From all the articles I've seen on the internet, you have a dead-end model, the "failure" model which Apple will soon be discontinuing. It has been discovered that no one likes colorful, plastic iPhones lacking Touch Sensor ID and a 64-bit processor. I'm sorry, but you unfortunately picked the wrong choice of iPhone.
I think it's too early to come to any conclusion how long the 5c will be around or what accessories will eventually be made for it. If Apple drops the price of the 5c it might become popular, especially in China or India, but only time will tell.
Exactly; you don’t have any actual position whatsoever. You have ad homs and lies.
you should know by now that drinking and posting don't mix, read my previous post and you'll see where I stand. Besides you're still making no sense, bet you don't even recognise your own posts, not that they are worth reading anyway
As a person that owns a current generation iPhone 5s as opposed to a 1st generation iPhone that is little more than a really old iPod stuck on iOS 3 I agree that a larger iPhones is needed and will be extremely popular. People that cannot afford a 5s or even 5c are not the target market for the iPhone in any case and they won't be the market for a larger iPhone 6. Apple are not stupid and realize people like me decide to buy an iPhone because we love the hardware, iOS, the app ecosystem and other factors but are not crazy about a 4" display and want something bigger. Eventually if there is no larger iPhone many of us will switch to a company that offers a larger display that we crave. There is no way of knowing just how many will prefer a larger iPhone over a 4" until it is released but my gut tells me it will sell better than the 4" unless Apple decided to price it much higher which I think would be a mistake. Hopefully it will only be $100 more but I wish they would maintain the same price. A larger iPhone would also give many Android users the one thing they have cited as the main reason not to buy an iPhone which is a larger display. This will be a win-win for Apple and the customers to finally offer a little choice beyond storage size or color.
Although I agree with you that it is very unlikely that Apple would release an iPhone over 5" I disagree that a larger phone "gets too far away from being useful and purposeful" People talk about the importance of one handed operation but how many iPhone owners actually use two hands as much if not more as one handed operation when you are doing tasks that requires more than a quick glance. Years ago during the number of portrait only mode apps outnumbered ones capable of doing both or landscape only but that has now shifted and you can use far more apps in landscape mode now as well. Many games are landscape only, texting for me at least is far faster with two hands or should I say 2 thumbs, looking at websites is easier to read in landscape, pretty much anything I do on my iPhone that takes me longer than 5 seconds to look at the screen I tend to switch to landscape mode. I suspect I am far from alone and for anyone already viewing landscape mode a great deal they will definitely appreciate a larger display.
