The prospect of a large-screened iPhone 6 has customers salivating, the Galaxy S5 was also a hit
A survey carried out by ChangeWave in March indicates the biggest yet customer response to the prospect of owning a new iPhone. Out of 4,109 participants, 26% said they were "somewhat likely" and 14% "very likely" to buy the next gen iPhone 6, which was described to them as having a larger screen, gesture controls, and an updated iOS operating system at a price of $199 on a two-year commitment. What's more, the demand for a new iPhone exceeds that for the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5 according to data from previous ChangeWave surveys. Of course, a larger screen is very likely just a part of the reason people appear willing to invest with Apple.

But an upcoming iPhone 6 isn't the only smartphone that has customers excited. According to ChangeWave's data, the demand for the Samsung Galaxy S5 also overshadows demand for previous S-line smartphones. Or at least as much can be inferred, seeing as some 28% of respondents said that they will be buying a Samsung phone within the next 90 days, which coincides with the S5's launch.

Wow a large screen (4.7 inch?) way to innovate Apple. That is only 1.7 inches less than the phoine I already have.

I guess you forgot about the 5.7 inch iphone phablet lol! Dude, Apple will have all the bases covered. Even if the phablet is 5.5 inches, it will compete nicely with the 5.9 inch note 4 and 5.2 inch S6. The 4.7~is the sweet spot for most.

Apple is not releasing two phone sizes. @isprobi No one ever said anything about a larger screen being innovative so stop trolling

Just wait. Apple spins everything they do as innovative. Idiots will believe them, knowledgeable people will look at idiots like they're living in a bubble. Just like the last two iPhone releases. LOL!!!

"4.7~is the sweet spot for most." Where have I heard that before? Oh right, when the iPhone's 3.5" was supposed to be the perfect size, then subsequently when the iPhone's 4.0" was supposed to be the perfect size. Not saying you're wrong that 4.7" is a sweet-spot type of size, just hate it when people are so loyal to something that they think it can do no wrong, which you know is going to be the case for a lot of people getting the new iPhone.

Why are you quoting something from years ago by a man that is no longer living? At the time that was spoken, it was a good size for most. Things change. Hell, the Dell streak was laughed at. Now those same people that were laughing are carrying around Note type devices. Most iphone enthusiast have been wanting larger phones since the 4s days. Some have left for android for that very reason. Where are the folks who said the iPhone and ipad would fail? I could go on and on. Why are you so worried about what people are loyal to as long as you have what you want?

Innovation is not based on a larger screen size, but the acquisitions Apple has made to incorporate the technology within their product lineup.

Why is it so hard for Apple to make a larger screen phone. They act like they're trying to invent warp drive.

Bigger displays isn't just a simple take off a small screen and replace it with a bigger one, you need to start from scratch, processing, battery innovations, calibration, ram memory, a whole new portfolio of apps/games, a time frame to give developers to push their apps from mediocre ancient apple screens to HD or FHD, software enhancements, UI aspect ratio and plenty more. This is no walk in the park, if they mess up they will be bashed by every single OEM.

Wow. Now you're acting like they're inventing warp drive. If small no name white box Chinese companies can make a 4.0" AND a 5.0" phone it's not an engineering marvel that Apple does it. The only thing they need to worry about is how their OS scales to the new screen size. Big woop! Honestly Apple could release a scaled up version of the iPhone 5C and their user base would eat it up. Apple doesn't care what their competitors say they make billions off of small iterations and slow evolution. Don't make their variation away from small phones into some engineering feat.

So why can moist Android phone makers and Windows Phone makers produce new screen sizes every few months? Yet it takes Apple years.

Because they are thinking of words to describe their 4.7 screen ifruit. Like . Innovative .. Errrrr....

Because both android and wp are using snapdragon, and the main reason apple's 64 bit processor is that fast, is because of the mediocre screen on the iphone 5s.

If they make it any larger phone will probably cost around or almost at 800-900$

Even more icons to clutter the screen, sounds f****** stupid. Congratulations on being really late to the non midget screen size party

You don't understand that the icons don't matter. It's the screen usage once the app is open. That's one of the reasons people prefer iPads. Sure it's just icons but once the app opens you realize that the app was specifically designed for that screen size by the layout and placement of everything.

Wow that's so unique... So what you're saying is that iOS has the only apps with separate tablet and phone layouts and designs. iOS is so innovative, it literally has no limitations to its amazing abilities. /sarcasm So sad to see how brain washed some of these people are. They spout nonsense talking points like they're laws of physics.

Who said ios was the only one that had unique layouts? Did I? I am saying that so far, the iPad has the best selection of iPad optimized apps. Saying otherwise is just plain incorrect. What tells you that I am brainwashed? You on the other hand spread blind hate as part is you accuse others of in so many articles. Also, I have been rooting and playing with android phones since the Motorola milestone. I enjoy android and don't blindly hate it because I prefer ios. Tell your patents to upgrade their (your) phone plan early and try ios a little instead of hating for no reason. Grow up.
