    One-third of smart phones shipped in the first quarter of 2014 had screen sizes of at least 5", according to Canalys. 12% had screens of 5.5" or larger.

    Why shouldn't Apple try to take some of this large-screen market?

    I think they should! I would actually consider it, based on the ridiculous factor. :D

    In my experience with both platforms, the biggest consistent gripe about the iPhone has been its screen size. All other complaints pretty much take a back seat to that. I'm sure Apple wouldn't mind winning back a percentage of those who switched platforms based on screen size. I'd jam that 5.5" puppy into my front pocket somehow. :D

    My only issue would be the current cubby hole in my car that my 5S fits perfectly in wouldn't be anywhere near big enough. I'd have to find another way, and honestly, I have no idea what I'd do. lol

    Why not use an adjustable dock that's mounted into the dash? I had one installed along with my stereo. It would accommodate a larger iPhone. That way you can see the iPhone's screen for GPS, etc. You could get a vent clip mount if you don't want to take the dash apart to install it.

    I was told 58 years ago to "put on your glasses when get up and take them off when you go to bed". In spite of that, I'm not willing to wear cargo pants 12 months a year just to accommodate an oversized iPhone. YMMV

    58 years ago I only remember someone telling my mother to push. Don't know what that was all about.
