Thunderwing's Matrix

parislemon:

And continuing on the Marco Arment front, he’s also predicting that Apple will indeed do a 5-inch iPhone (well, technically a 4.94-inch one):

An iPhone Plus almost as big as a Galaxy Note isn’t ideal for many people, but it doesn’t need to be quite that large to accommodate a 4.94” screen. It’s clear that other manufacturers have found designs and techniques to make larger-screened phones require smaller bezels. Apple could achieve similar results and shrink the “forehead” and “chin” even further, limited primarily by the size of the Home button and the desire to keep the forehead and chin equal height.
A 4.94”-screened iPhone doesn’t sound too ridiculous these days.

Arment’s other mockups are compelling arguments by themselves. I buy the argument, even if I’m not sure I’d buy one.

As much as I love my iPhone 4, I’m still planning to move to an Android phone sometime over the next 1-2 years anyway as Android fits how I want to use a smartphone better than iOS does (i.e. sharing to social networks and between apps is easier).
