Let's talk about this design, shall we?
Hey all, let me preface by saying that yes I am aware these photos are speculative at best. Yes, we will all reserve judgement until Tim walks out on stage with the next iphone. But since speculation is all we have to go on, and these pics 'appear' to be more than just your average render, let's have some fun and talk about our thoughts/feelings if this indeed turns out to be the iphone 6.
It would appear they are indeed reducing bezel. It also appears they are going with more rounded sides. An all aluminum back separated by antenna bands. Also seems they are once again going longer than they are wider.
What do you think? If this were the final product, and without having the chance yet to acually place it in your hand, are you pleased with what you see?
I am torn. At what point do you sacrifice design appeal in order to try and maintain one-handed use? Judging by the pics, it is almost like looking at a Hershey's candy bar. I am trying to envision looking at video or pics on a phone that is that stretched out. But, the screen is indeed larger and I have been one of the those hoping for this. I also am torn on the rounded sides. I find the sides of the 5/5S to be striking with the sharp lines and beautiful metal look. Does anyone else look at this phone and feel a sense of the 'premium' look to be gone? Does the all metal back with antenna bands appeal to you?
I am just curious your thoughts. Not much else to talk about from a hardware standpoint since we have all had the 5S,5C,5 and beyond for quite some time. I think deep down we are looking at the next iphone in these pics, and if so, I am not sure how I feel about it.
