There are rumors that the next-generation iPhone 6 from Apple — expected to arrive something this fall — will sport a screen size of 4.7-inches, and maybe 5.5-inches as well. That means it'll go from the old 3.5-inches and current 4-inches, which are now on the small side of the phone size spectrum, all the way up to middle and potentially large. From mini to maxi is broad range though, everything from easy to use with one hand to big enough you might not need a tablet anymore. That's why we asked the question — what's the perfect iPhone screen size for you? Well, here's your answer!
Turns out, as of publication time, more than half of you want a 4.7-inch iPhone 6 next the most. With over 10,000 votes counted, here's the breakdown:
Over a hundred of you took the time to elaborate on your votes as well. A lot of you fell into the happy medium camp:
Others, of course, feel like if you're going to go big, go big, especially if it would obviate the need to carry around a tablet as well.
Not everyone thought bigger was better, though. For some, the current 4-inches is still best:
Very, very few wanted the 3.5-inch iPhone to make a comeback simply because 4-inches wasn't that different:
Still others are either holding out to actually see and feel what Apple releases before making up their minds, or are trying out larger competing phones, and not always happily:
That Apple does bigger is certainly one thing. How Apple does bigger will absolutely be another.
If you haven't voted yet, go vote now and check out the other comments while you're there. Then let me know — if a the 5.5-inch iPhone had a better camera and longer battery life, would it change your mind?
