Do paper route jobs even exist anymore? I mean with all of the digital content, do people have home delivery? I live in an upscale neighborhood, and I haven't seen a newspaper being delivered in a while. And, if newspapers aren't going digital, they seem to be going out of business.

Back on topic, Apple is going to release the next iToy with a larger screen. Whether it is 4.7, 4.8, 4.9, or whatever, IDK. But it will be larger than 4 inches.

That would defeat the purpose of their "one-hand" UI. I bet if they release a 4.9 incher that would be a niche device, they will still have their main iPhone remain at 4".

Ok might be working well for you.. and other fellows who have enough hand size. As for me, and my wife, we can barely reach all over with a Lumia 925 (4.5" plus some bezel).

I plan to get a Moto X as a backup for $300 w/ Republic Wireless.

Btw, it's not a true 4.7" display due to onscreen softkeys.

Have you seen bezels on iPhone????

Compare iPhone4s to Galaxy S2- The bezels of iPhone take 34% of total phone size. Thats called waste. S2 utilizes only 21% in bezels.

Compare iPhone5s to Note 3 and LG G2- The bezels of iPhone take 28% of total phone size. Another waste of phone size. Note 3 and LG G2 utilizes only 13% in bezels.

Apple need to reduce the bezel sizes for one hand operation if they want a bigger phone.

Ever heard of off-screen swipe? Fingerprint scanning?

True, bezels are wasted space on *Android* devices.

What about all the ad banners? They don't only occupy a good portion of the screen, but also drain power from *your* battery.

Ok Mr Over smart.. The comment was about one handed operation on huge device and if it had same kind of huge bezels it defeats the purpose of one handed operation on iPhone.
Did you get it or should i explain more?

You just said it LOL! One handed use will still be in play if they still sell the 4 inch screen. The bigger phone will be for the people who want more screen. Your argument would be justified if they only released one phone with a 5 inch display.

It will still be useable with one hand because they will just "make it taller, but not wider". lol

I never expect anything good on the iPoone, no micro SD card slot, no NFC, and iPoones are always overpriced. If the iPoone 6 has a normal flagship price then I will think about it, but if it's overpriced again, then all I can say is: "Go poop yourself, Apple.".

No, I don't think it's weird. We all poop ourselves when we were a baby.

The iPhone is not so okay. What I like on the iPhone 5s is that it's compact, and the build quality is premium, and also the fingerprint scanner. That's all. If they price it right then I think that the iPhone is okay, but since they overpriced it, I don't think it's okay.

Don't know about you though, but that's just me.
