which he believes will resemble an upgraded iPhone 5s
Finally. I feel vindicated. I have long fingers but I simply detest big phones. What's the point of a mobile phone if it isn't light and compact? If you want a tablet, get a tablet.
People think they want choices. I want Apple to go back to having 1 iPhone size.
I'd buy it in a heartbeat. I prefer the size of my old 5 a bajillion times more than my current 6. It was easier to grip (I never needed a case or bumper until the 6) and one-handed operation was superior.
