The difference between all the iphones is that it is either stretched verticaly or horizontally or just smashed with a hammer to make it thinner. For God sake, change the UI.

Changing the UI is not enough, they have to make iOS more powerful with better multitasking support.

No he said ahead, if apple wasn't so controling, and wanting it "There" way instead of the "Peoples" way it would be so much better ten folds. But right now I work for a phone company and I have experianced both worlds of Apple and Android there both good but until apple picks there game up Android is a WIN!

Android did rip off iOS. We stole multitasking, turn by turn navigation, the notification system, and last but not least, geometric shapes. How silly of me!

Android had folders first, FREE turn-by-turn navigation for years (iPhone just got it with iOS6), Android had the notification pull-down first and it is still much better than iOS's, Android has REAL multitasking like on a PC, unlike iOS where the iPhone is so weak it can only pause apps. Geometric shapes? Are you high?

Looks odd with the screen stretched so vertically now, but not enough horizontally to balance it.

Agreed on the UI, it's stale. iOS is the only UI I can think of that's 5 years in the making and basically the same since it was released (appearance wise). Time for them to move out of their comfort zone and make some changes. Just because you're raking in the money doesn't justify hanging onto something so dated.

The problem is if they change the UI they lose tons of people who are too dumb to use anything else.

Oh I guess you're a genius because you use android?

Studies show android users don't even know how to use basic stuff like wifi. They also show Apple users are more educated and make more money.

iOS users wouldn't either if it didn't pop in their face every 10 seconds that they try to use data

Images are gonna be so stuffed on this aspect ratio. I can't imagine why anyone would buy an iPhone anyway

I think that design will be similar, but in my opinion this prototype is fake!

I think it's real, that's what Tim Cook and Co. can do w/o SJ's guidance.

It's clearly not real.

Apple would never release a device like this, as we have all seen there were many prototypes before the original design.

They will most likely release something that makes everyone go WOW because that's how they roll.

I'm an android user, so I am not trying to go all apple worshipper on you, but that phone right there doesn't make sense.. Why they would just elongate the "perfectly" sized iPhone with its 4:3 ratio.

"Because that's how they roll"???

Like when we were all WOW'd by the 4S?

I agree that the phone there doesn't make sense, but I don't think we're going to be "WOW'd" just because it's Apple.

I also think it's perfectly within the realm of possibility that they will simply elongate the "perfectly" sized iPhone... why? Because people will still buy it.

4:3 ratio limits the size of the screen b-c it will make the phone too wide. there are too many consistent and detailed evidence to say it's fake.

Actually the samples are well built and the only disapointment is lack of innovation, or Wow factor in your words.

yup man you are soo true but why didn't you point out that the battery indicator showed it is charging while there was no cables attached to it?

In my opinion even display is fake, it is only paper picture behind the transparent plastic.
