    With the S8 coming soon with it's 'infinity display' - you think Apple are going to blow our minds with some sort of curved/edge-to-edge display on the next iPhone?

    Considering the fact that Apple will likely be getting the displays from Samsung, it's entirely possible -- if Apple will spring for it.

    Likely to happen given the rumors. If we don't see true edge-to-edge I'm sure we'll at least see smaller bezels.

    I prefer some bezel. I like to protect my device.

    Maybe....but much of it depends on their continued vision of the iPhone. Sure Apple would like to the improve upon the iPhone while keeping it distinctly iPhone.

    I don't remember where I read this, may have been on Android Central after the introduction of the Google Pixel phones. One commentator talked about how they didn't mind the bezels. They helped him hold the phone while watching videos in landscape mode. Holding the bezels didn't cover up the screen. The Pixels have several "design cues" taken straight from the iPhone 6/7...

    They all take design queues from each other these days. There are only so many ways to skin a smartphone. Until someone invents a triangular phone they're all going to be shaped like chocolate bars with a camera in the back, a speaker and another camera at the top, and buttons/switches along the sides.

    I totally agree. How many ways can you redesign a rectangle?

    There are several industries that borrow from original creations. Movies are commonly ripped off...

    Yeah but Apple has the power to make the ordinary people believe they were the ones that invented the features that they copied from other manufacturers

    Apple has definitely created a culture. They are extremely good at marketing. Plus in the end they do make a good product. Love them or hate Apple, they make a good product have a good ecosystem.

    I'm going to say YES to the dual curved edges on the side of the device. Similar to the Galaxy S7 Edge

    I don't think Apple will go as far as Samsung and remove the home button. That's a distinct feature to Apple and I think they should keep it. I also have a feeling they will be jumping to OLED displays with upgraded resolutions

    Yes I do. I've had a chance to experience the S8/S8+ and it does look good and fits well in the hand. I'm not sure how Apple will keep its iPhone distinctiveness, but I'm sure they will come up with something.
