yes, agreed. The bigger screen is not a big selling point for me, and that applies to either the S3 or the iP5. I like the smaller/more portable form factor personally. I understand there is a world of folks who want bigger screens, just not for me.

As far as faster processor. The dual core A6 in the iP5 benches faster in spec tests, but I am not sure that will translate into any eye popping differences in real world use.

I always found the dual core A5 cpu in the iP4S to work just fine for all my needs and I believe that some of the demands I put on it were fairly strenuous (e.g. high bit rate, realtime recording). never balked on me once.
