Considering that all the high-end android phones have at least a 4.5 inch screen (with some at more than 5 inches), Some people will still think that a 4.3 inch screen is still too small. Frankly, Apple should just skip to iphone 6 and give it a 6 inch screen.:D

And others think 4.5" is too big.

History would suggest against a screen size change for an 'S' model.

As I've said before, I don't care if they make a bigger one eventually, just keep a current model the same size as 5, please.

4.3" is what size my HTC Evo had, 2 years ago.

4.3"? MY GOD! Apparently Apple is looking to compete with the Samsung Galaxy Mega! Talk about keeping up with the tech trends!

Nope, not buying this story

Lot of sales are made at Xmas.
It just lengthens their selling season (frenzy).
But a release delay would be suicidal.

Have to agree with Klang on this one.

It might be possible for them to go to a 4.3 screen and keep the same form factor. There is about 1/8 of an inch band on each side if the lit screen on the iPhone 5. They would need .15 inches wider of a screen to go to 4.3 vs 4.0. It could still fit in the same size phone.

Much better rumor :)

Now if someone had started a rumor with this story, it would be believable.
?Keeping the same pixel count, of course (that would be a small drop to density, but tollerable).

It would be a great marketing feat by Apple to get a larger screen size, but not change the size of the iPhone5. Most accessories would probably not have to change.

An even bigger screen and higher resolution could be saved for an iPhone6, this would make a good compromise.

But, I do not think they would want to delay past the beginning of November.
