    Apparently it's still a possibility of a Nexus device coming. Though not sure how reliable the information was. They're saying 5.5" though. If it's that big I won't be interested. :/

    Nothing against large phones but wtf? I don't need something that big for every day use. I just want a sturdy phone with a good battery, decent camera and nice screen. Preferably a nice spec internally to go with that. I guess that's impossible...
    Well, many people are making the tough choice of getting one good portable device to do the work. So I cannot blame a bigger screen on some of these phones. Personally, I'm a smaller phone kinda guy, but I cannot knock OEMs for giving the market what they want.

    Yeah it would seem the one device for all crowd wants the large phones instead of having two devices. I personally can't fathom lugging around a 6" phone all the time. I have enough issues with the L920.

    As long as there's still at least a 5" or a bit smaller I'm happy. Just needs to meet my simple requirements. Who knew getting a new smartphone would be such a pain. I guess this where Apple thrives. At least you know what you're getting with them.

    Has there been an announcement for that? To me the perfect upgrade for the Surface would be the ability to use WP apps. That would increase it's appeal immensely. Either that or run Windows apps. They need to sort something out for that thing.

    The next iPhone is not 5.5". It's 4.5". Which is a good size.

    I thought threshold was another 2-3 years away. That's quite some time to have a product hanging around that not many people buy if you ask me.

    For me, I like smaller phones because on my crowded commute I use my phone alot for music, to check public transportation time schedules, etc. Now I wouldn't mind a 5", or use my Z Ultra as a daily driver, but I'd be on those phones a lot less in public.

    That is where a smart watch has appeal. If I can get notifications on my wrist, I'd keep my large phone buried in a pocket.

    Not quite. It may be a 4.7" regular and a 5.5" phablet. Personally, if they made iPhones at each of those screen sizes: 4" for the cheap model, 4.7" as the flagship and 5.5" as the phablet, they would do just fine.

    A few pages back I linked to an article that had leaked pics of the phone. It's larger both ways. I think it adds a row of icons.

    I stand corrected. I only heard of the 4.7. I didn't realise they were bringing out two sizes.

    So that's the rumoured date. Find me an official statement and I'll believe it. Were talking about MS here. Keeping a date isn't their thing.

    Just reporting the rumors. It actually makes sense for them to offer both those screen sizes. If priced correctly, that can eat into the lower end and phablet market. Apple has nothing to offer screen size wise between the iPhone and the iPad mini, so some sort of phablet there can hit Samsung hard.

    Steve Jobs has wanted to kill that home button for years so I wouldn't be surprised to see iPhones go completely gesture oriented with no physical button on the front within the next few years. Guess that's behind the thought of the sapphire displays. Put that on a 5'5" screen and an Apple logo on the back and it will sell like hot cakes.

    it will be insanely overpriced.

    Yet some knuckleheads will stand in line to buy it, some people will sell body parts and virginities to get it, tech sites will sing its praises to the point you wonder if it can cook, clean, wash dishes or mow the lawn with all that hype. And all the snobs, and yuppies who get one will thumb their noses at non-iPhone users.

    Apple at its finest...

    It was quite personal, but that's not the matter. I was explaining how I look forward to something because every aspect of it is great, but then I realized that with these high expectations disappointment is never far, so I thought it's better to keep it to myself ;-)

    I feel insulted :P

    I can imagine that it will be expensive though. The 4.7 inch model in the same price range as current iPhones and the 5.5 inch model 100 $ more is my guess.

    You mean kinda like how you fawn over the idea of busing a new iPhone and when you do, still talk about missing things about the 8X you still like? 😏

    If i called you an iSheep (which you aren't), you'd have had every right to get your knickers twisted up.

    It is amazing to see knuckleheads camp outside an Apple store for days to get an iPhone. I saw it in person a few times and had to wonder if those people were employed. You remember the guy who paid homeless people money so that they could camp out in line so he could get iPhones from the Apple store and resell them and jacked up prices?

    All this for an iDevice? Sad and shameful, i say...
