Claimed iPhone 6 front gets handled next to an iPhone 5s, is tougher to use with one hand (video)
An "infinitely close to the final production version" iPhone 6 glass panel has leaked out again, and from it a few things are becoming quite obvious about the eventual biggest iPhone redesign since the original was introduced about seven years ago. 

First off, as you can see in the video, one-handed usage of the new 4.7" handset will be less comfortable than with the iPhone 5s. This can be expected, and is an unpleasant side effect of large phone screens, coupled with the now-obligatory Touch ID fingerprint sensor placement at the very bottom. This is preventing Apple from the ability to use smaller bezel there, although the top one is comparatively large, too.

Decreased overall ergonomics aside, the iPhone 6 might still be fairly comfortable to operate with one hand, thanks to the very thin side bezels, and elongated shape of the handset. As you can see in the direct comparison with the iPhone 5s display panel in the slideshow below, the FaceTime camera has been moved to the left of the earpiece slit, instead of being placed top and center, which might throw off your video chats at first, until you get used to the new position. 

Last but not least, the oft-rumored "curved" glass panel seems to express itself in only a slight bend at the edges, which would match the rounded phone sides, if the leaked dummies and prototypes are any indication of the final design.

Kinda funny how theres this monsoon of "leaks" yet not once has anyone spoken about the glass. I'm looking forward to the sapphire movement, but there has been nothing. Gonna laugh, again, when the iPhone gets announced and its completely different than all these "leaks", again.

You mean like the fingerprint scanner and siri?

And then Apple actually copies the things you guys laugh at, like making the screen bigger, or let's say widgets, or 'control centre'. Mate, everyone is laughing at you.

Also you can pug it into you like the Matrix & go to iPhone 6 world! You can be a total boss there... Like Neo!

Because someone is acutally building them and selling them online from a schematic that leaked a few months ago. Now if it is the actual iP6 who knows. I usually don't start believeing until I see logic boards getting leaked.

A piece of glass is your next phone? That doesn't seem very useful.

My Nexus 4 has a 4.7 inch screen and it's very easy to use on one hand; think some are exaggerating on this new size being less comfortable.

What they're saying is that it is less comfortable than the iphone 5s. It's true that the nexus 4 and more so the the older nexii and any similar sized device is easily usable in one hand. The nexus S was sweet.
