    Same screen size, lose some weight and thickness and beef up battery life and memory! Perfect iPhone

    Everyone wants it to be thinner. I mean thin is great and all but theres a point where it starts getting ridiculously thin and becomes in danger of snapping. I would like it to feel solid and durable not paper thin and brittle. Thin is not always better.

    A 4" screen is simply perfect.

    I would like to see them go back to the rounded back like the 3G era phones. I thought they were way easier to handle and looked a lot better. And get rid of the glass back. Oh, and a bigger screen would be a welcome addition.

    Someone needs to work this out,

    The home button does look a little big (same screen small bod)

    I don't see the screen size getting bigger in the same "small" package. If it does, say goodbye to battery life.

    After using the samsung captivate (which has a 4" screen) I must say that the added real estate is something apple should do. Surfing the web or looking at pictures and videos on a 4" screen makes a noticeable difference. All 4 iPhones have had the same size screen and it's time for an upgrade.

    A larger screen, if they kept the same resolution, would probably mean a taller iPhone - you can't just make the screen wider without making it taller. I don't think the current dimensions of the iPhone 4 would be enough for an edge-to-edge screen. In particular, the home button would be nestling in a very small amount of space, uncomfortably close to the actual screen.

    And if they changed the resolution, they would be simply embarking down the long slippery slope to device fragmentation.

    So either we'll see:

    -a taller iPhone or an iPhone with markedly different physical dimensions to accommodate the larger screen

    -the same size screen but with the iPhone chassis 'shrunk' around it

    -a similar design to all previous iPhones

    I'm willing to bet we'll see the third option. Without meaning to be overly sarcastic or cynical, the folks over at Apple seem to think their word is gospel - who are we the public to tell them how big a screen we need? It would be seen as too much of a reaction to competitors' handset designs rather than a design decision for its own sake.

    No. I agree with you. I think some don't understand. Or just want a huge phone. I for one think the current screen size is good. Make the phone match the current aspect ratio an thinner. Oh and faster w/ the same batt life or better. Thanks Santa... Speed is always good.

    I think a 4" display would be awesome...until next year when it becomes boring and all the Android divices go up to 5". I'm glad they're sticking with the same case design. It is still the best looking phone IMHO.

    If Apple wants to keep the same aspect ratio, they will not be able to fit a 4" display in same casing. The highest they can go is 3.7". According to those photos, the display ratio looks the same. So the next model will have either the same 3.5" display in a smaller form, 3.7" display in the current form, or 4" display in a larger form.

    I will just buy an iPad 2, If I really want a bigger screen. I like the design of iPhone 4 right now. My thoughts that they should concentrate on adding those tweaks like the photoalbums

    I really hope it doesn't get a bigger screen. Bigger screen = bigger device. I have my phone at work in my pocket all day, and it's big enough.

    To the person talking about a 5" screen, do you realize just how big that is? Take a look at the Dell streak way too big for a phone. I bought one for my dad and it's just way too big. Like mentioned above it's the aspect ratio going bigger will cause headaches for dev unless the keep the same resolution, but then say bye bye to retina display. I'd like to see the a9 with a gig of memory in the same design as the 4. Just my opinion.

    Not a same size body with a bigger screen!
