I got my cringe when I first saw it. But Im putting it on the poor quality build and the color combination. The roundness gets to me in a bad way, but I think its something that will look better in person than in the images

Hahahahaha that's an oddly apt way of putting it. Perhaps the horizontal bands on the back were a result of that squishing...

To me it looks like the original iPhone and the 3G/3GS had a baby.

Looks alright, no major new design elements, but pleasant enough. I would still like a picture of the back to see if the camera is protruding.

I feel the same feel...definitely harkens back to the first iPhone. Very excited about this.

Looks like it is protruding from that top view image

I feel the same way about the roundness, to me its just really ugly. I'm also hoping that the one they show is actually beautiful and I'm getting worked up over nothing. That's why I'm really trying to hold judgement until the actual announcement, but these leaks (to me) are ugly.

I think that is only because of the strange colour combo- I think the white front panel is meant to go with the silver backing. This one should have the space grey backing. I guess only September will tell.

Scuffgate in 3..2..1..

Other than the scratch-weak metal I really love the design, it's curvy and thin. Goodbye brick-box iPhone 5s

reminds me of the original iphone. i remember buying one when it came out in 2007. it was great to get email, visual voicemail and the internet on the go. nothing has changed much since then, actually, besides faster network speed, making the devices smaller or larger, or maybe it's thinner and larger at the same time. gosh. i've since lost that phone. i think it fell out of my pocket. idk. but i am now rolling on an antiquated android phone. again, occasionally being able to connect to the net on the go. same function as it served in 2007.

This thing is looking better and better. Reminds me a lot of the first gen, which was a very solid design. I'm really hoping they keep this color combo. It'll be like having a vintage/modern iPhone!

Looks like its coming with standard "factory installed" scratches and dings straight from Foxxcon!


(I joke, surely this is some sort of pre-production model)

What's most impressive, and maybe I didn't notice this until now, is that the entire front panel is one large piece of glass, or so it seems.

The Touch ID Home button seems to just pop out from under that panel. It's not like there's a separate bezel that is the "bottom" of the phone, under the screen, like in the 5s. This iPhone (with the screen off) now looks closer to Android phones that have all screen in the front.

EDIT; wait actually all other leaks don't have this front where it's one large glass panel.. so is this what the real iPhone 6 is like or is this a fake? Hmmmm.

Not Sure

Not sure if anyone has noticed this yet, but it looks strikingly similar to the original iPhone.
