    Or.....it could be a matter of preference? I want my beautiful device protected AND I want to see its beauty. A clear case accomplishes both.

    I prefer it to an Otterbox if I'm not going to be outside doing things that could damage my device. You feel otherwise. Just as valid an opinion.

    I'm sure those clear case are a big hit down at the senior center ...
    Really makes an iPhone stand out amongst the sea of "jitter bug" flip phones all nestled away in their nylon hip holsters...
    Like I said just being a friend.

    I had a raindrop hard case for my silver iPod Touch 5th gen. It was clear up top and faded into purple at the bottom. It looked awesome against the silver. I'll see if I have any pics of it after I get out of a meeting.

    I'll weigh both equally and see what I like best. As is, I love my 5S...but, I have considered the Galaxy Note in the past, in turn, I'm intrigued by the 5.5 possibility. Another thing I don't understand much is the bezel argument. I mean, it's not like it's that big. The bezels on phones have never bothered me. Ah well, takes all kinds. I'm reminded of Louis CK's rant on Conan about cell phone's and their users reaction to something taking more than a half a second.

    Like these? Two for my Z10, two for my 5c. I bet these would of looked awesome on my 5s had I decided to keep it. Wonder if a case like this would make me like the iPhone 6....

    Edit: If it does, I'm getting the 4.7. No way am I getting another 5+ inch cellphone.

    I love using my iPad Air naked. I love the feel of it. If the 5.5" iP6 feels similar I will wanna keep it naked also. Probably will get a spigen glass screen protector and maybe a skin back cover.

    Just an idea of large the 5.5" inch may be. I just wish I could see the phone in space gray/black.

    Way off topic a long time ago just because of a question. It starts with good intentions and then turns to something else. If all the writers and people that like to stir things up meaning people in the media would just wait for official announcements instead of writing because they have a deadline we would be better off talking among ourselves about our opinion and only our opinion we would be so much better off.

    Yes! Pretty much like those, only with raindrops as well. I thought I still had a pic of my iPod with that case, but apparently I don't anymore . I liked the look so much I got a case almost like it from another manufacturer for my Z10. I didn't like that case as much. It was white and clear, and the white part looked really cheap.

    That shows how much space is wasted at the top and bottom . Before I started really looking into the iPhone leads I was set on getting the LG G3. I figured that would even be pushing it as to how much I could comfortably hold. I use the G2 now and it has a 5.2" screen. I'm not thrilled at the thought of a half inch downgrade if I got the smaller iPhone...but I'm still looking forward to seeing it in action during the launch event.

    I agree with the top and bottom bezel being too big. If them slimmed it down, they could cut probably 1/2 inch off of the devices total height.

    It's pretty simple........want smaller bezels? That makes the phone thicker(which I know does not bother some folks). Want it thin, like these mockups are? Then the bezels will be larger.

    I wouldn't mind a thicker phone, if that means we will get more battery life

    I doubt a thicker phone adds battery life. It's just easier for battery makers to make them thicker. But they can flatten them out in a larger circumference without giving up life.

    Possible renders. If this was the finally product I'd be ok with it. Just want a darker color

    Those plastic outlines have now been rumored to be placeholders for glass/sapphire, so the lines won't be there any more. I agree that the mockup looks cool though!

    They could go with the stacked battery approach that both the Moto X and LG G2 uses, G2 is not very thick and has a big battery for its size.

    This makes 0 sense, if the

    This is getting better and better. Interesting though, I don't know the 5s had it over the camera.
