    I can put past the power button on the side, and the weird antenna bands, but the camera ring its ridiculous! Are we in the Middle Ages or something? I would like to be able to put an iPhone on a flat surface it be stable.

    Unless you carry your phone naked.... the camera ring appears to be a non-issue.

    I usually carry my iPhone naked. But with this protruding camera, I'm going to have to put a case on the beauty!
    I'm scared I'll rip it off or damage it somehow. Might be different once I get it in my hands though. Must start case shopping!!!

    Do I hear snark in your tone? Why wouldn't I consider an iPhone? Apple is my #2 choice behind webOS, and after seeing the cases, I'm going to get a leather one.

    Awww, she's cute.
    That protruding ring is interesting and different from what we're accustom to from Apple.
    Humm, I wonder if this will be "corrected" in the 6s

    I agree with OP, don't like the camera sticking out. But I will still buy it. They should have made the casing as thick as the camera had to be and just filled up the extra space with battery.

    I would prefer to have some sort of ring that would protrude only if you wanted, using some sort of electromagnet system

    WebOS? Ha ha ha! Really? PS4 is my #2 behind turbo graphics 16. My God you're hangin on for dear life. But enjoy. I had palm pre. Worst phone ever. Didn't regret getting rid of it for a second. I was stupid for not paying the early termination fee

    Question for all future Iphone 6 owners..

    4s, 5, 5c/s, 6 / 6 + all have the same 8mp camera. That's 4 years with the same mega pixels. We're you expecting a mega pixel bump with this launch or are you still happy with the camera?

    I know mega pixels does not mean a better but it still help when zooming and it does feel silly that someone with a 4s who doesn't know much about cameras can say "well my 4 year old phone has the came camera as yours"

    Not bothered at all. I've had all the iPhone's with 8MP cameras and the photos have been noticeably better on each.

    Check out Apples web site:

    Apple - iPhone 6

    Scroll down a bit where Apple is bragging about how worthlessly thin the new Iphones are. Then look the side profile picture. Apple has photo shopped the ring right out of existence. LOL. I guess they found it objectionable too.

    Now, imagine if they had just made the Iphone .02mm thicker, made the camera flush and used the extra space for more battery! Can you say Iphone 6S?

    How often do you look at the back of your phone? if you rock a case then you're fine. I get the comment though, it seems odd for a company that strives on perfection do have a camera ring protruding. I was hoping that the reason its protruding is that Apple had some type of camera-lens lined up that would attach to the ring.
