    Default iPhone 5 would be great, if....

    It has thinner top and bottom bezels. With that, it'll make the iPhone looks like a more modern phone.

    I could see how that would be nice. Kind of like how Samsung phones are shaped? I just put mine in a case anyways though so I don't really care how its beveled.

    imore forums would be great if...........these types of threads didn't exist.

    I kid I kid

    The iphone 5 is a great phone as it stands, with it's design being one of its most praised attributes.

    The iPhone would be great if people chose to view the device for what it is and not for what they want it to be, at least in 'my' opinion. Furthermore, that goes for any device.

    The form factor of the IP5 5 really is a marvel of design. I have a 4S in a case and if I had a 5 it too would be in a case totally destroying how great it looks but in my business I have to use a case and holster.

    That's actually a bad design. Samsung did it with the Galaxy S3 by having a thin top and bottom bezel & the screen would have a higher chance of cracking if you dropped it on the side

    Not necessarily. That's equivalent to say that the smaller corner of a roof is weaker than the middle when in reality that's the strongest point.

    Exactly if you don't like a phone then don't buy it and the one you do buy just enjoy the phone unless there's some bug that renders it useless.

    If it had a bigger screen. Widen it up a little bit so it becomes 4.3 inches. Or just give it a 4.7 1080P display.

    I agree, and I see Apple going this route one day soon.

    In the next 5 years, all phones will be only screen, barely any bezel. IMO

    The edge could be more round and the cover may be shell.

    Would it be that big of a deal to increase the screen size from 4" to 4.2"?


    Who would even notice?

    I doubt Apple wants to give developers another resolution to work with. And if they increase to 4.2" without changing the resolution then the PPI will decrease.

    Exactly! I like the size as is....to make an increase that small makes no sense.

    That sounds like a great idea, but then it suggests that you don't care if the next iteration of phone is any different. Perhaps the thread should be, "If you could be on Apple's design team, what changes would you make for the next version?" Staying with the status quo will get you nowhere fast in this industry. Just ask BlackBerry. I think one day a few years ago, Mike and Jim said, "People like our phones for what they are, and not what they want it to be".

    I think this is a valid thread and you shouldn't jump on the OP like you did.

    That is untrue. Not looking forward to something does not mean that what you have isn't great. If that were true then nothing could be considered great. Watch what happens after the new iPhone is introduced. There will be a thread "that same day" asking what do we want in the next iPhone iteration as well as the next iOS version.
    Perhaps the thread should be, "If you could be on Apple's design team, what changes would you make for the next version?"
    Perhaps.
    Staying with the status quo will get you nowhere fast in this industry. Just ask BlackBerry.
    in my opinion, RIM lacked long-term planning, innovative designs and the inability to appeal to non-corporate users. Apple doesn't have those problem and the lack of a phablet smartphone will not doom them to the fate of RIM.
    I think one day a few years ago, Mike and Jim said, "People like our phones for what they are, and not what they want it to be".
    You maybe right.

    I didn't think I jumped on the OP. Did the OP not type, "The iPhone 5 would be great if..."?

    If anyone jumped on the OP it was me. Seriously how many of threads do we need on this same topic? Perhaps the OP can either use the search button and hop on one of the other 50 threads saying the same thing..or go find the phone that already is 'great' in his/her eyes because the iPhone 5 is what it is.

    Lmao android fan boys huh? Is it that absurd that someone likes a product but could think of ideas on how it could improve and be better in their eyes. I guess if not just go buy the 4s and stick with that it didn't need any improvement. It was perfect the way it was.
