    It really depends on how thin is this particular device though, if it's really wafer thin category I will be fearful to get the bigger screen version for the risk of snapping it in half.

    I have the 5th gen iPod touch, it's 6.1 mm thin and weights 88g trust me you don't want a phone that thin.

    Here's a comparison video of the 5th gen iPod touch with the alleged iPhone 6 case that is based on rumours:

    If they make the iPhone any thinner they will have to design a new type of headphone jack... Plus the sound quality from the speakers would be horrible.

    I agree with all those that state apple should keep the thickness around the same and pack in the largest battery possible. Besides the small screen the bad battery life has been my only major gripe with my iPhone. Hopefully the 6 can improve both of those issues.

    the headphone jack comment is a very good observation, had not really thought of it but I believe that defines the absolute minimum possible when it comes to thinness... because as much as Apple love to invent their own plugs and adapters the 3.5mm headphone jack seems hard to replace (No idea from the technical side, just saying that from a commercial perspective I think 3.5 is universally so prevalent and wide spread that to too many people a phone which doesn't agree with people's favourite earphones would be a dealbreaker).
    Having said that, Apple seem to feel that simplicity, sleekness etc are linked to thinness and therefore I do believe that they'll try to continue that trend, if possible. If the phone stays robust (which the new glass should ensure?) and the battery life does not suffer.. why not?

    Interesting to see we all have the same conclusion of wanting a similar thickness but focus on battery life, and for me personally Camera. The iPhone has a great camera, but when they went from the 4S -> 5 they only made it thinner will maintain the same quality. I don't think making it thinner now is worth it, if instead you could keep it the same thickness, eek out more battery life and push the camera stack forward.

    I'm currently on a Nexus 5, and I enjoy the design, it is thinner on the sides and then it curves out, overall it is thicker then the 5/5S but it feel just as thin, due to the sides. I'm all but set on getting the iPhone 6 either way, but if it offers awesome battery life that is just another big win.

    You don't want a thinner iPhone. They are thin enough as is, any thinner and you will start seeing a lot of failures due to to much flex in the circuit boards.

    We're just a going to have to see. From what I know about Apple, aside from the "death grip" issue few years back, they won't bring out a product they know won't work. We think thin phones are going to flimsy and bendable but who knows? Time will tell.

    As of right now, I like the design and the thinness of the 6.

If somebody responds to a thread you posted in poor fashion, ignore it, and the moderation team will quickly clean it up (you can always message or email a moderator at any time if you observe anything that is in poor taste/against the rules). Think back to what your parentals and teachers used to lecture - if you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all.



    Always remember that we are all unique and at different levels here - some of us are experienced Apple users and forum junkies, while others are just starting out. If you’re on the experienced side, have patience for those just joining in on the fun and be helpful. With a little patience and a little help they won’t be newbies for long. Also remember that it is our differences that keeps this place interesting. If everyone was from the same place and at the same experience level it would be boring.

    Now if that doesn't sound like a couple of kids. I think that's exactly what Taz was referring to. Let's forget it and move on. Thanks.

    Back on topic, is the iphone 6 thin as the Motorola razr (android) based on the leak?

    Keep the current thickness so when they size up to 4.7 & 5.5" phones the battery can actually you go get BIGGER and not remain the same and last even less of the day then it does now. Maybe they could actually get to a 2000mAh or bigger battery, we know they won't join the Samsung or LG party at 2800-3300mAh.
