Rumors have been floating for months that the next iPhone will have a 4-inch diagonal display, and new visual evidence appears to back up these claims. The two images above show the alleged iPhone 5 on the left, and the iPhone 4S on the right. Both stills are from an 84-second video from Vgooo.com, a Chinese tech site, and offer compelling evidence that Apple's new handset is longer, but not wider, than its predecessor. According to NPD DisplaySearch analyst Shawn Lee, the 4-inch iPhone 5 display will be precisely 18% larger than the iPhone 4's 3.54-inch screen, and will maintain the Retina Display's 326-ppi resolution. It'll have a 16:9 aspect ratio too.

re: iPhone 5: 10 Things To Expect From Apple
Isn't it also interesting that iPhone sales dwarf Samsung's? It's certainly a matter of choice. I was so persuaded by reviews that I switched from iPhone 4s to Samsung Galaxy S3. After having the S3 I can say "For me it's not superior to the 4s". For me the S3 is to big, the 4s display is much sharper & there is no comparison in android's to Apple's. The S3 may be superior in specs but in usability it doesn't compare. The S3 I think for the most part has it's place with gamers and the younger generation but I as I said it's a matter of choice and it's seems most choose the iPhone. I'm looking forward to the iPhone 5.

Apple's advantage is and always has been the user interface / GUI. They make it easy for people to use there devices. I have an iPhone because of iTunes, if andriod or Mobile 8 get an nice music player I'll give my iPhone to my kid. For my needs nothing else is superior about any Apple product.

Isn't this interesting because iPhones are starting to copy Samsung (still a superior product).
