The next iPhone will have a 4-inch screen - we’ve heard it yesterday and we’ve heard it last year from all kinds of sources, but now both the Wall Street Journal and Reuters agree…

A bigger screen is all good but really what apple should do is focus in changing iOS. Although it is intuituve and great, it is becoming boring. I am not saying they should add widgets but maybe change the launcher and visually make changes.

I remeber 2 years ago when Android was just picking up momentum on Verizon with the OG Droid, and even a year past that. The drivign force was the apps. Android didnt seem to have quality apps, games, etc. But as of today they have almost all quality apps that youll find on the app store. So since apps doesnt add too much of a differentiation anymore, Android ICS takes over. I have the iPhone too and loved it, but the OS gets voring too fast. Now i have the Galaxy Nexus and its way better. I love the huge screen and the layout of Android ICS. But i cant wait to see what the new iPhone will bring, they shold anounce iOS6 in June i think..

I think iOS 6 will mop the floor with android. Google's OS is already behind but the Apple update will just widen the gap.

I know I shouldn’t fall for it but what the hell are you talking about? Google's OS is already behind? What are you putting in your tacos that make you so delusional?

theyd have to go big or go home. yeah apple is doing pretty well with rockin the 3.5 but a lot of android phones are getting bigger screens (note, spectrum, etc). if apple wants to keep up with the competition theyll have to up the screen.

But....but Apple already is blazing fast compared to laggy Android. How can you improve on its "magical" perfection anymore?

4 inch screen is THAT important? it's almost a year since we heard rumors about the next iPhone's screen size. stop talking about that please.

It seems that if it really happened, Apple would definitely be behind the curve on this one. But as we all know, it would be advertised as if it was another "magical" Apple innovation that has never happened before. And then we would start seeing the ridiculous lawsuits to stop anyone else from offering larger screen phones.

Wow an even bigger screen to plaster with its simple apps launcher OSI here by declare that iPhones are nothing more than advanced feature phones. My Android tablet has shown me the light! And iOS cannot compete, it is LIGHTYEARS behind. With a little tweaking, I'm pretty sure they could make Android apps that match their PC equivalents in features and functionality. As for the new iPhone, I plan on getting one, I'll be buying my buddies upgrade, and getting the largest capacity offering for $200 off, yes! But my RAZR shall remain my phone.

But since we are talking big screen, I think my 4"3 is as large as I would ever want it to be. I remember it did take me a little while to adjust to texting and browsing due to the larger size.
