  • Fairly new to the iPhone 5S, always used and still do the latest and greatest Android devices. Saying that I feel the new iPhone doesn't need to change it's size looks, I think it is the best made and looking device to date. Don't understand why the media is always pushing to change the size or a proven winner. Coming from using screens that are much larger I find the 5S very comfortable to use. I do think they could loosen up on other features like adding swipe keyboard. Looking at some of the great tweaks available if you jailbreak the iphone I just don't understand the reasons for not applying these great tweaks to the stock iphone 5. That has been the only complaint I and other new users have with this device. I haven't jailbroke my iPhone 5S yet but over the next few days I will, I just can not see any reasons not to.
    Go Patriots,
  • I agree with you, The size of the iPhone is right in the sweet spot of portable convenience and usable functionality for a smart phone.
    Adding additional screen sizes just complicates Apple's device ecosystem. There is greater appreciation of the diversity if iOS devices actually offering something different from each other by a discernible measure. Instead of having a ton of devices that are only 1 inch difference in size from each other. Sent from the iMore App
