This is what a 4.8 inch Apple iPhone Math might look like

0. phoneArena posted on 22 Jan 2013, 22:00

On Monday, it was believed that an Apple iPhone with a 4.8 inch screen would be introduced in June at the same time that the 7th-generation Apple iPhone would be unveiled as the Apple iPhone 5S; but that was Monday and the latest rumor has two 4 inch models coming this year, and a larger screened model not coming until 2014 or beyond...

iFind it sooo hilarious that the way the size of the iPhones are judged is by rows of silly icons :/

Adding one extra row for apps would be considered a major change. Yay? -___-

OMG, it looks like my lovely and lusciously huge Galaxy Note 2, except with a round Home button. Samsung should sue those "copycat, copycat, nothing but a copycat, Apple is a copycat."

I would prefer a 4 inch iphone then a 4.8. I used to think 3.5-4 was perfect but now with the slimmer phones and smaller bezeles 3.5-4.3 is perfect for me with my average/small hands. I can do 4.5 thats fine its just a tad to big. With a very small bezel maybe I could comfortably use a 4.8 inch iphone but I would prefer them to keep within the 4-4.3 and 4.5 at the biggest . I still think my iphone 4 screen size is perfect 90% of the time. Really amazing for texting and phone calls. It's a bit small for video though.

Ofcourse everyone has varrying handsizes and that changes what phone size they are comfortable with.

I agree, a 4.0" android phone made by Moto or Sony (I'm thinking iPhone 4/4s SIZED (it'll run android) would be perfect for me, but the Flagships are all huge, and there aren't really any premium smaller phones

The PlayStation 3 has the Dualshock 3 for example, Is virtually the same controller as the 1997 Dualshock and the 2000 Dualshock 2, here applies when someone says "If its not broken, don't fix it"...

But the iPhone Math the same as the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 5??? Why? I like the iPhone 4 design, but the same again, again, and again... it feels like a Deja Vu...

More and more icon rows...doesnt matter how big the screen gets because it will always look the same. If you really want to know what a big screen phone looks like, just look at almost every other phone put out last year :-). Way to be behind the times...at this point...is it your standard Apple?

Firstly, iPhone Math is ridiculous - the reality is that this has been mis-heard by someone whose first language is not English as "iPhone Math" when what someone actually said was "iPhone Max" - or it may have been that someone saw something written as "iPhone +" and took that to mean "iPhone Math".

And just adding another row of icons? I doubt it: much more sense for Apple to increase screen size to 4.8 inches and then double (OK, quadruple) the resolution to 2272 x 1280: that would give them huge bragging rights, and I believe that pixel density is doable with the vaunted IGZO screen technology. And it would be a very simple matter for app developers to simply double the resolution as they did for the 3GS to the iPhone 4. The 4S to 5 leap was tricky because of the change in aspect ratios, but the solution as above would be a great way to answer a challenge.

Maybe apple is trying to rename widgets, as an excuse to use them, then call it their own creation, apple is stuck with the icons, and all they can do is give more rows of icons.

Maybe the iphone 7 will see and extra COLUMN of icons, that would change everything again.

One extra row of icons was added because the phone became just longer, w/o any increase in width-due to a change in aspect ratio
And now since the aspect ratio is to be kept the same, increase will be in both rows and columns-especially if screen size increases from 4" to the massive(for phone) 4.8"
Still, apple have to do something with this UI, the undisputed winner of 2007 may not be the same in 2013 -_-
