Apple Interesting set of options Apple has to move the iPhone to a 4" display, as detailed by Dan Provost. I don't care how Apple does it, as long as they do it. The iPhone's tiny screen is nearly unusable once I got used to the 4.3" of my HD7 and SII. This is quite a personal choice, of course, and there's no right or wrong, but it's clear there is a demand for larger displays.

I consider the iPhone a mobile device, something thats small and easily carried the trade off for this is screen size. Ive tried 4" and 4.3" and a lot of them are simply too big. Adding a larger screen is really only going to affect the spec sheet, i don't think it will add that much to a mobile device.

I have a 5.3" mobile phone and I have never really seen a point in having a smaller phone. Movies are simply awesome (I actually prefer it compared to my shitty laptop screen), internet experience very good (no need to zoom in landscape mode), PDF reading perfect (again, no need to zoom in landscape), gaming very good, and all that without a slightest compromise in mobility or comfort.

Of course, YMMV, that's why it's always good to have a choice.
