A quad-core graphics chip for the new iPhone 5 is worth the wait. If your a fan of the Infinity Blade games with over the top graphics for a phone.
also 4G
[QUOTE=B!N4RY;35346790]That's pretty shit to be honest comparing to what is available to some of the Android phones. Apple must bump up their resolution to 1280x720 or higher if they want to compete, along with a screen size bigger or equal to 4.3". Also are you implying that the iPad doesn't already look like a oversized iPhone/iPod Touch?[/QUOTE] Anything over 960x640 resolution is pretty useless on the same size display as the Iphone4/4s. I can't even see the pixels by looking closely at my 4s. Just seems like a waste of processing power to add a higher resolution.

If Apple keeps the same screen size, [url=http://dcurt.is/2011/10/03/3-point-5-inches/]which they should by the way[/url], the only improvements would be moving to LG's AH-IPS panels for improved color reproduction and contrast ratio.

Apple sold record numbers with their iPhone 4S which was nothing but an SoC upgrade and a voice assistant beta. Besides, the size of the screen is irrelevant to how much it can display. The resolution determines that. The only thing increasing it to 3.8" will do is make it marginally easier to use for people with large hands. In doing so, Apple would likely have to increase the dimensions of the device that have been essentially the same for five devices.

I can easily use the phone with one hand and the higher resolution makes more of a difference than screen size. I wouldn't mind a slightly larger screen, but it isn't a dealmaker/breaker for me.

Not everyone has the same size of hands, and it's been shown through and through that people want to use larger phones than this size. I'm not saying that Apple should give up on 3.5", but they are simply too stubborn - not releasing a larger version is just shitting on your own posibilities.

The current display fits my hand perfectly (I've got pretty small hands). Right now I think the screen is PERFECT in terms of resolution and size, I'd much rather them use their resources upgrading Memory/ram/processors, or building a stronger glass for the outer casing of the phone.. or maybe even upgrading the display to look sharper and have more clarity ...and with better colour.

One 3.5", one 4.3".
[QUOTE=GoDong-DK;35566674]I'm just asking for them to make [I]more[/I] than one size. One 3.5", one 4.3".[/QUOTE] As an option I agree with you. But smart phones are pretty big. So putting them away and keeping them safe when you're out and about can be tricky depending on what you wear. I don't need a bag when I go out so normally my iPhone is in my trouser pocket or in my coat pocket. But some of my trouser don't have very deep pockets and I wouldn't want to take the risk of my iPhone being pick pocketed or generally falling out and end up breaking it or losing it. I can understand what you're saying. But we all know Apple so don't hold your breath.

That nice little circle he drew on the iPhone and S2 looks very good, but it's completely useless. Did he somehow find the average thumb length, or is he just pulling it out his ass? (Protip: He's pulling it out his ass)

I share his experience and lots of other people do. Oliver Haslam of Redmondpie also expressed his greater ease of use with the iPhone's screen opposed to larger screens on phones like the HTC HD7 and Galaxy S II. I'd also like to point out that Dustin Curtis is a professional designer, somebody who makes a living off of making easy to use products that follow good design principles. That doesn't make his opinion any more than an opinion, but he's not just making stuff up like you're implying. He's giving his views about screen sizes as an expert in the field of design work.
