Latest Apple iPhone 5 speculation; no big change in screen size

0. phoneArena 23 Mar 2012, 16:33 posted on

iMore, which correctly called the date when Apple would announce the third generation of its tablet, has some information about the next Apple iPhone (let's hope that it is given a better name than that); among the new features will be LTE connectivity for Apple's smartphone...

This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

the exact two phones i'll be considering also,The Htc one x is looking extremely good but will have to wait on the sg3 first before a decision can be made! The htc one x i should have my hands on within 3 weeks or so so that'll be first to get a looking over

Looks like the new iphone might have little form changes again,if apple however changes the charging port than ifans the world over will have to buy all new accessories,docking stations,car chargers etc to suit the new smaller charging connector and you can guarantee Apple will have a all these new accessories available to buy with the iphone at launch with nice big price tags on them

Agreed! If thescreen was between 4" - 4.5" i would definately purchase one. I need reasons to stay an Apple customer.

Yeah, well I'm a proud RAZR™ owner and the only way I'd consider an iPhone was if it had a 5.3" screen. Otherwise, it's a G-Note for me.

And, before you say anything, if the RAZR™ had a 5.3" screen I would not consider another phone.

♥ my RAZR but, size matters !!!!

pretty much the only thing holding me back from an iphone is the screen size. I have an ipod touch and it feels like a toy, I can't imagine using the iphone as my daily phone. 4.6" may be overkill, but I don't see what's wrong with 4-4.3"

Never know, it's jus speculation at this point. I hope they increase it too, but I doubt it would be as bug as 4.5.

Right there with you. I don't buy this rumor...I don't think Apple is blind to the disappointment people had with the last iPhone. It was a great upgrade of the iPhone 4...but there are a lot of people waiting for a brand new iPhone with a larger screen and a big redesign. If Apple doesn't supply it, it will be a huge misstep on their part.

They state that in the article, "According to iMove's sources, the display on the next iPhone will be similar if not the same 3.5 inches that it always has been.".

Well well well, look at this. Another case of same old crap, different day.

Apple you silly silly fools. That is the number 1 reason why I won't go back to owning an iPhone again. Sure back in 2009 when I had the 3G, I thought it was awesome, but times have changed. I tried using an iphone at a best buy store, doesn't matter how sharp the screen resolution is when you can only see a small part of the webpage.

Lots of phones with huge screens, and all of them come with the complaint of low battery life. Smaller screen = better battery life, lighter weight because it doesn't need a huge battery, and smaller phone size for easier pocket carry. The way I see it, if you want a phone with excellent portability, then a smaller screen is inevitable. If you want a tablet, go get a tablet. I say let Apple make smaller screens.

ok sgtdumbie you clearly have no idea what you are talking about lol.
Bigger battery = better battery life. The Droid Maxx got a huge battery and it can last you 2 days without charging it. Despite it having a 4.3 inch display. The Galaxy Note can also last a full day and that big boy has a 5.3 inch display.

Look at the original Droid, only 3.7, barely bigger than the iphone and god bless it's soul it had pretty crappy battery life. The move to larger displays also mean larger device, thus giving them the chance to put in a larger battery.

lol and how long does it actually last you? My Galaxy Nexus lasts me a whole work day of 8 hours and 3 hours later when I get home. Depends on how much you use it, brightness settings, yada yada yada. The point I was trying to make is the bigger the battery the longer your device can last. So "dude" I do know what I'm talking about.
