Check out these two concepts: Apple iPhone Air, and Apple iPhone 6 Curve
Amid talk that Apple is planning on using curved glass for the Apple iPhone 6, the Cupertino based tech giant recently received a patent for a manufacturing process involved in making more responsive screens featuring a curve. Considering that both Samsung and LG have released curved screen smartphones, there is a good possibility that we will see a similar feature on the next iteration of the iPhone.

Italian designers SET Solution have produced a pair of concept iPhone models for your perusal. Besides the curved screen Apple iPhone 6c, the designers took the thin form factor from the new Apple iPad Air and applied it to an iPhone. The actual design cues for Apple's new full-sized slate come from the Apple iPad mini, and the result is a fabulously thin handset that alas, is nothing more than a pipe dream for now. The Apple iPhone Air concept is 3mm at the bottom and tapers down to 1.5mm on top and looks as though it would break if you just looked at it the wrong way. At 70 grams, it would weigh 38% less than the Apple iPhone 5s.

The Apple iPhone 6 Curve offers a dramatic curve, much less gentle than the one employed by LG with the LG G Flex. The buzz around the water cooler is that the new iPhone models will use glass that curves downward at the edges. Of course, we will never know for sure until Apple makes its annual introduction next year of the next-gen iPhone models, whether these early reports are true. In the meantime, you can check out the two concepts by clicking on the videos below.

LG makes crappy smartphones.
Note 3 is the best smartphone at the moment, and I expect note 4 to be the best for 2nd half of 2014.

Maybe iOS 8 will support widgets and themes and things will change. I like that you can set an animatet wallpaper on android wich is impossible in iOS except the apple's default wallpapers. I hope next year will be different because iOS 7 is new in terms of design to (iOS world) but needs more productivity and CUSTOMIZATION wich iOS lacks at the moment.

It will probably cost $800+ for the 16gb version because of the huge increase in screen size. XD

Apple: First, we wanted it to be as great as the iPhone 4 was. Extrodinary. So we placed an A4 chip set. We needed it to be thin and made of plastic 'cause my daughter needs a new car. And we wanted it to make it really affordable, so it starts at just $699.

5.2" 1080p with that sexy design. I'm sure iPhone 6 will be my first iPhone.

It’s a shame that Apple users can only dream while with Android it’s already a reality.

The prices don't vary that much when comparing android flagships with iphones; and for the price of those flagship phones, you're getting a lot more out of it... finally with the money you saved? spend it elsewhere; that's what an intelligent customer would do in my opinion.
