Two years from now, do you think we can expect an even larger iPhone 6?

    Because everyone has the same hand size, right?

    Your point being that eventually Apple will only make phones that can only be operated by basketball players?

    Point being, don't assume everyone has small hands like yourself.

    Again, pushing 6'2" with a hand span of 9.5". I don't want a 12" phone. I don't want a 5" phone. I can't use a 5" phone with one hand.

    It's dumb to think a 'one size fits all' is the best solution. I'm not arguing for a Galaxy Note II size screen, just a realistically larger screen option for those of us who don't have small hands like a Chinese girls.

    Why is it dumb when the population of people with hand size that iPhone is designed to fit comfortably is large enough to take up all of iPhone's production capacity several times over and then some?  Taking on the extra cost of supporting a different form factor while you still have trouble satisfying demand on the form factor you do have is what I consider dumb.

    Apple currently makes different sized ipods, imacs, desktops, laptops, and displays, yet people want to argue for 'the one size fits all' for the iPhone.

    As the Droid RAZR M demonstrates, Apple ought to be able to go to a 4.3 inch display with minimal consequences for the width of the handset, and to save trouble for their software developers they could get to 4.3 inches at the current resolution and still stay just north of the 300dpi you need for a Retina claim at the distance one usually holds a phone from one's eyes.  I honestly thought Apple would consider going with 4.3 inches this time.


     


    As for anything larger than 4.3, it will all depend on how much market share Apple loses to Android in larger phones.  It's not ergonomic for the hands, but, as I've discovered with my Galaxy S3, it IS ergonomic for the eyes.
