Do you like the iPhone 5's alleged new design?

0. phoneArena 11 Sep 2012, 02:17 posted on

We see all kinds of iPhone mock-ups every year, but they have never been so consistent as what we've seen during the last few months. It's like everywhere you look, there's this iPhone prototype with its taller and thinner body, and back side made of metal and pieces of glass/plastic for the upper and lower ends...

It's okay, but it's still too similar to previous versions. I like the looks of the Razr Maxx HD a lot better.

Yeah I agree, its just okay. It definitely isn't ugly, but let's keep hoping this isn't it. Back in May, Johnny I've (the chief designer of Apple for those who don't know) said that "What we’re working on now feels like the most important and the best work we’ve done." If he was referring to iPhone, this can't be it.

It's possible that Apple has orchestrated a massive amount of misdirection this time around just so they can gobsmack us with something truly good, but that would've taken a lot of resources and cunning. And hate to say it, but I don't think Apple really has a strong grasp on marketing like they did before Jobs passed away. Their commercials have ranged from silly and more than a little misleading (the Siri commercials) to just plain stupid and insulting (the Genius ads).

Yeah I like pictures 3 & 5. The white doesn't look too good. But why does it look like there's two different designs for the black models (like picture 3 vs 6)? And in some pictures of the white model, the mid-section has a grey shade and in others it looks like yellowish. If I was to make a bet, I'd say these are all fake...but maybe that's just wishful thinking, lol.

The new design looks good, but I'm not crazy about it. I even hate to think that I will see the same design around for a year or two (for iPhone 5S). But I wouldn't mind using one as long as it runs Android. LOL. I'm very much happy with my SGS3.

I have my GS3 running CM10. The alleged iPhone 5 with iOS 6 will seem like a toy in comparison.

Has anyone considered that maybe two glass bars on the back of the iPhone 5 are maybe symbols od two empty 88 px screen bars when using old apps?

(of course, I think those glass bars are also for contact with surface, to protect metal back from scratching - that's why they appear elevated on leaks and mock-ups)

Now that's an iPhone! The design is really impressive and looks a lot better than my galaxy S3 :( . With a retina display, quad core A6 processor, awesome camera and a premium metallic body, this iPhone has great potential! I am not an iFan but I Cannot deny the fact that this phone looks better than any phone in the market ( NO SARCASM INTENDED). also, the design is better than the iPhone 4S. Am sure the HD video playback would be great too!

Where are you getting your stats from. No one said anything about a quad core. Id like to know your sorces.

for me the 4's proportions are better, the 5's looks narrower and contrasting back breaks overall solid feel. Seems that Apple didn't put much effort to design the "5"
