Ummm yeah, I am thinking that this size might “fit” my needs better than my iPhone 6S which I find almost too large.

It’s a shame there’s no 128GB model - that’s all that’s lacking from my perspective.

My wife doesn’t want anything bigger than the 3.5” iPhone 4S. We’ll see if I can change her mind with this. She keeps complaining that Facebook crashes constantly on the iPhone 4S (other users of 4S’s also report this) which is basically her only reason for wanting to upgrade.

I used to think I did not want anything bigger than the iPhone 5. Now that I have an iPhone 6, though, I’m not sure that I’d want to go back. On the one hand, the iPhone 5 fits my hand much better so there’s less risk of dropping it when reaching for buttons. On the other hand, the iPhone 6 is actually just big enough that I don’t find myself saving articles, and even ebooks, to read later on my iPad but am comfortable reading them on the iPhone.

With the demise of 2-year contract subsidies, I will probably switch to buying phones outright. So cheaper is better too. (Who needs installment payments? Makes no difference whether the money sits in my bank account, earning no interest, or in AT&T’s and it is less hassle.)

I thought the 5S might be bigger, but a friend pulled out her 4S and the 5S is smaller in width and thickness and only a tad longer. Overall a smaller device.

The thing is the screen takes up more of the face of the phone.
The 5S is much much lighter too and easier to hold. It stores in my minute work vest pockets.

Your wife ought to go look at the new one. She might be surprised.

The 5S and the new 5SE should be great.
Much improved over the 4’s which I have a couple of as well.
And the camera… Wow!

I would have like the 3-d feature and 128 gigs, but you know… if I get one now… in a few years there will be that and more.

In the mean time… I get the benefit of a far better phone than my current 5S to use each and every day and at an ok price too.
