I'm sorry but those bands/lines on the back look ugly as ****. I think the iPhone 5 managed to make these much more esthetically pleasing...

Most people have cases on their phones and never really see the back of them so who cares if it has those separators

the circular LED flash light still confuses me.

But after seeing what iOS 8 is capable of and what developers can do with it, I'm super excited to get back to iPhone!

Do you guys really think that the thickness of those breaks is an aesthetic choice?

There must be a technical reason behind their thickness. Maybe they act as a shock absorbent and will sensibly reduce the chances of breaking the screen when dropping it on the corners?

Why do people always get confused by the circular cutout for the flash? Every time they post a leaked image we get this kind of comments...
It's getting tiring, do you really think they wouldn't be able to put a dual flash in a circular hole instead of a pill shaped one?

Dear Jesus, please don't let those breaks be real. I wanna be sad to put a case on, for the beauty of the thing, not feel like it's necessary to cover it up.

Those breaks coupled with the fact that it's likely to have an inferior resolution to many of the Android phones coming out these days, makes for a less than exhilarating launch.

Yeah, I'm still getting one, cuz Android software annoys me. Just saying...

The design's definitely growing on me. Even the antenna breaks at the top and bottom look quite good now!

I love how thin it looks and I like the curved edges. Always disliked the hash sharp edges of the iPhone 4 and 5 series.

However it looks kind of ugly with those huge antenna breaks - this isn't the level of elegance and refinement you expect from an Apple product.

I doubt Steve would have approved. Hopefully it's just a pre-production part to throw off competitors.

Really, really, ugly.

Such a lame design, and those thick antenna breaks ugh. Guess I'll be keeping my 4S for another 2 years until iPhone 7 comes out

If you look at the part where the battery goes you can see that it will be substantially bigger!

Bigger Battery = Better Battery Life!!!

That's not the power button that moved, it's the new placement for the secondary lightning connector and home button combination! /s

I don't understand why the antennae breaks are visible as a unique material on the outside but the inside looks like solid metal.

On a serious note, that thing looks sexy as hell. I'll take the 5.5" in 128GB black/gray/slate/whatever. Thanks.

They said that about the 4. And people got used to it. I still don't understand how people are so reactive to design aesthetic. You're going to put an ugly-ass case on it anyway, what does it matter?

Any gains will be (at least partly) offset by the extra power draw from the larger screen.

This may be a lighting problem, or the part didn't yet receive all the necessary polishing, but this shade of gold looks quite horrendous compared to the current one on 5s.

Maybe it's just me, who knows.

I don't think Jony had anything to do with this design - they probably gave the job to the interns.

Jony's spending his time designing the next generation of revolutionary devices, such as the iWatch. Phones are pretty boring for him.

The antenna is integrated into the part.

I don't think the antenna breaks will be that thick. Also the lines aren't even in the picture, this is probably an early prototype or a dummy for case makers.

Do you have confirmation from Apple?

I feel like I've heard those words before... Oh right, I hear them every time images are leaked of a new iPhone. Yes, including the 4.

Those antenna breaks look so awful... Like the clean cut on 5/5S. But seriously..... Apple spends so much money on R&D. Why can't they figure out how to get rid of those? -.-

I honestly have moved from eager leak-seeker to feeling sorry for Apple. We basically know what the whole iPhone looks like 3 months before launch. It's like someone spoiling your surprise birthday gift for a friend.
