I was listening to this week’s Amplified podcast, and Dan Benjamin said he still used an iPhone 5s, and wanted a 4″ iPhone. I’m in the same boat. I bought an iPhone 6, and returned it, in part because it was too big. I like a phone I can hold in one hand.
I’ve heard from a lot of people on Twitter, when I tweeted about this earlier, who said that they, too, prefer the smaller phone. I have no idea if Apple will be releasing another 4″ phone – other than, perhaps, keeping the 5s in the catalog, as the cheap model – but I would very much like to see one. If not, I’ll see if I can make my iPhone last three years.
(Note: I buy my phones unlocked, so getting another year out of it is a good thing, and I don’t have to continue paying an extortionate price to my phone company.)
So what about you, dear reader? Are you pining for a new 4″ phone? Or do you think, as one friend I spoke with today, that I’m being a luddite, that Apple will never go back to the smaller form factor.
Update: Oh well, foiled again.
