Except for the part where apple kicked off this patent trolling/suing/banning BULLSH*T. The mobile industry was doing just fine until apple started acting like a spoiled brat and saying "no faaaiiiiiiirrrrrrr they cooooooppiiieed us!"

So - I guess apple customers will have the magical and revolutionary experience of trying - and failing - to send a document via e-mail from a 4.8" device LOL.

I own a 4.8" device. It's called the Samsung galaxy S3. A true Smartphone. Samsung copying apple? Guess it's the other way around.

You mean that there was a time when I supported Apple? There was.

But since then I've realized the truth - to put it plainly - Apple sucks. Big time.

If they release something with the name 5s. It will fail big time... iPhone owners are begging for something new.

if it does come out as 5s ppl will already know to wait for the 6 which would eventually be revealed shortly after

You better believe it. If they release iPhone 5S instead of iPhone 6 with a big update, then I'll be exploring other options come November.

i do believe iphones may have something new to offer this year but idk if it's enough to persuade me to get it over the next nexus device. the xperia z is a great device and the gs4 may be a good handset but i think ill eventually stick with the next nexus hopefully the x phone will end up as the nexus made by moto if not the x phone is sure to be a big contender in the mobile market for sure but again im sold on the 2013 nexus device...wish the best to the iphones tho it would be awesome if the screen size increases it will be a beautiful device indeed

If all 3 are equal to iOS in functionality, then we can still plan on doing 1/3 of what can be done on most other OS's.

Totally innovating: 12MP camera, slightly larger screen size and multiple color plastic chasis.

This is Apple not Samsung!. They would never take the chance to make a 4.8 phone. Its not their way of business. They take baby steps not a leap of faith.

False, if it is true, then huge mistake on Apple's part. One device per generation should be it. Having more iPhone devices than one would dumb the whole iOS ecosystem down, I mean iOS is boring enough, but three of essentially the same thing?

Another point is that the iPhone was meant to be the iPhone, just that. No iPhone Camera, iPhone Mini^2S, it's just silly. Leave the ultra-fragmented smartphone selection to Samsung.
