It's not so much that I think 'poor developers, they have to work to earn their living!' but that I think 'ffs, why is this app I use on a daily basis STILL not updated?!'.

I know they're all the rage right now but the galaxy 3/4 and Note 2 are just ridiculously large phones and look idiotic when people hold them to their ears. Their poor shoulders from the weight. Oy.. Looks like and old early 80's sitcom where they had the large cellular phone back in the day.
It's impossible to hold a Note 2 with one hand and type with thumb. For me a really dumb design with the hugeness. And if you look at sales of the Note 2 and S3/4 combined - there's no comparison to iPhone sales. iPhone kills 'em - and for good reason. The ip5 is a sensible size which, like a smartphone should, is operable in one hand.

Yes +1 on the bigger phone size. I don't want an iPad Mini either I want a bigger phone. People complain about it but if they don't want it then don't buy it. The issue is some people are tall and with that comes bigger hands. I swear I type on my iphone and if I'm not careful I hit like a thousand buttons all at once lol. I'd love a larger screen size.

All are optimized for iPhone 5.
I'm curious as to if the apps you are talking about are popular apps?

But that's comparing (the price on Amazon UK with an old iPhone 5 with the newer and vastly superior Samsung galaxy S4. That's not fair!

I suppose for some people it doesn't really matter, but it really bugs me out whenever apps are not optimised. Perhaps the situation will change due to Apple's recent 'iPhone 5 optimisation or bust' rule, or it might just mean that some of these apps will never receive another upgrade.
Doesn't matter for me in the end, though, cause I won't be buying a larger screen full stop. I can hardly hold my iPhone 5 with one hand as it is, nor does it easily fit in my trouser pockets (and no, I am not some skinny jeans wearing hipster, I am just a small woman ). I don't begrudge anyone their jumbo phone, though, so long as the smaller iPhone won't become the 'budget phone' we've heard rumours about.

I swear, this moronic arguement will never end! Think and look just a little bit before speaking. I know it's a new concept, but trust me it can be done. Here's a comparison between the iPhone 5 and the HTC One, with a 4.7 inch screen. THE DIFFERENCE IS MINISCULE!!!!
I know sometimes it can be hard to fit your iPhone 5 while you're wearing your girlfriends skinny jeans, but trust me. Carrying around a bigger screen phone is easily done.

I must be the only person in the world that thinks 3.5" is enough. I like Android, Jelly Bean 4.2 is actually pretty darn good. I've thought about switching, but any half decent Android phone these days has at minimum a 4.5" screen. That, and the fact most Android phones have sub-par cameras, is making me stay with the iPhone 4S. I even feel like the iPhone 5 is just too darn long. I had hoped they would find a way to shrink the top and bottom bezel to keep the footprint of the 4S when they went to the bigger screen, but it wasn't mean to be. I do have an old HTC HD2 running Android 4.1 that I use on occasion when I get bored. It has a 4.3" screen, and it's a beast. Too long and wide for permanent use, IMO. I also manage to type better on the 4S or an old backup Droid Incredible (the original w/3.7" screen).
I would definitely be interested in a new 3.5" iPhone if it weren't cut down on features/power like today's <4" Android phones. Android phones today under 4" are a joke, sporting technology that was current 4-years ago and sold in blister packs for prepaid.
I'm not even a small woman or skinny jeans emo kid. I'm a big fat baggy jeans wearing man.
