I am fully aware when screen gets cut off just like in every HD video on YouTube on my iPhone 4S when I want to get rid of the letter boxes it will cut off the sides.
Yes your correct that if a video is in 4:3 on an iPhone 5 if you go full screen it will cut off the top and bottom. Fact of the matter is professional HD recordings are uploaded in 16:9 and in fact cinema wide screen standard for today is 2.40:1 which would be even wider than 16:9 resulting in letter boxing (atleast everyone that I have came across) and all the devices record in HD and are in 16:9.
But anyway I see we will have to agree to disagree. Please feel free to send me a link to any video you see this problem and I will share 10 more that don't.
I mean to argue that 16:9 is not the standard in HD is silly. The term 1080p is widely assumed as a widescreen format and would 1920x1080 resolution that is a 16:9 aspect and is the exact detention of any modern day monitor or TV.
But being a video pro as you say it. I find it odd that your argument is old YouTube videos because like me and Anthony have said (and we both have Iphone 5's) we have no came across any videos yet that were not 16:9
Again nothing but respect but even in the settings that You select your quality in YouTube it says 720 or 1080p lol.
Please review this page
This is straight suggestions from uploading video content. It states to upload in the highest resolution and if it is done in 16:9 aspect it will fit the player perfectly.
I don't see how you can further argue that 16:9 isn't the standard at least for YouTube when it's video player is in 16:9 and they suggest uploading in 16:9 or it will be letter boxed

Just cause I theme does not make me ignorant to video. It's not that hard to understand. 1080p has 1080 lines of vertical resolution. To achieve 16:9 that means you would have to have a resolution of 1920x1080.
Now you can still achieve 1080p quality at different aspect ratios, however 16:9 is the HD Standard, thus why monitors and tvs (and now the iPhone) are made at this universal standard aspect ratio.
I don't have to be a video pro to realize those simple facts that in this day and age the standard is a widescreen format at 16:9
It doesn't matter though. One post you say that me and Anthony probably don't realize the top and bottom is being cut off but for video pros its very easy to point pit but in this last post you change that point of view to anyone can see the difference.
Fact is. If the video is taken in HD then it Will most likely be uploaded as such. I find it very funny that your argument as a video pro is that all these old videos that are armature at best (because they were taken on a device that doesn't record in HD) effects you more than a video that isn't HD. Lol. Would think the lack of definition would before irritating than letter boxing
Great convo my friend. 👍

The fact remains that the majority of video posted today is still 4:3. And that video AS BAD AS IT IS, looks WAY better on a 4:3 aspect ratio phone. That's why the Galaxy S series phones are now outselling ip5.. One of the main reasons. Please read my posts carefully, bro, so you can respond to the points I'm actually making.. ..
You are 100% right - 16:9 looks AMAZING on the ip5.. But the vast majority of Internet (non professional) video on the Internet is still 4:3 and gets cut off on the ip5 screen. That's one place a 4S is superior to the ip5.. Which is where this whole discussion started. .. The ip5 isn't superior to 4S for projecting 4:3 ratio which most of the Internet still is and why most phone manufacturers still have 4:3-friendly screen sizes. On that point I am not wrong and it's easily provable. Though some people still can't notice how the top and bottom is cut off when 4:3 is playing on ip5's 16:9 screen.
Looking forward to playing with my new ip5 soon! I know I will love many things better than my 4S.. Not 4:3 video though.. Lol!!!

Also because the 5 and older phones share the same width when flipped landscape that means that the height is exactly the same making 4:3 videos looks exactly the same on both devices other than letter boxing on the 5.
Anyway my friend. Enough on this topic

All in all - the 5 is a pretty nice step forward in almost all ways. But you'll see - the 5S or the 6 will increase width. They have to. The public wants it.

Ill happily be wrong but I firmly believe this screen size is here to stay for a while.
And please send me a link to a video you tried so I can see what you are rendering too. Or type of video because seriously I saw far more title blocks on my 4s than on my 5. Lol.
I've had the larger Samsung s3 and while the size was "cool" was far to big for comfort for me

When you're Steve Jobs you can thumb your nose at Adobe because Jobs had gravitas as an innovator. Cook, as a successor, will need to please his user base first while he's getting his first 'wins' as an innovator -- IF he can pull that off.
In the mean time we will get SOME things we want: bigger screen, Flash....
We will NEVER get 'open platform' though.

Just messing with you.
There are many reasons people switch to android. A big screen I believe to be a smaller part of that reason.
The open platform is the main reason. The fact that apple can stay in competition with 1 phone vs many speaks volumes that apple has done things right.
Now maybe we will see a wider Iphone but I'd he surprised and don't really think that's the direction apple wants to go. But hey time will only tell. I don't work for apple nor study them as a company. If they go wider on the screen ill buy that too and be happy as well.

To add your comment of Cook "reacting," look at how he handled the Maps debacle, and his recent news interview. I bigger screen is most likely already in the works.
I wouldnt be surprised if in the near future, 2 sizes of the iPhone will be available. The standard and a larger version.

What I don't understand is why osx is an open platform. I can enable installing products from 3rd parties, however they lock down iOS ?
I hope one day they realize this and allow 3rd party items. Doubtful but wishful lol
