The iPod Touch line is a great source of information on future iPhones.

From general design to protruding camera.

It's almost like they use the Touch as a test bed for ideas before rolling them out to the iPhone a while later.

That protruding camera ring is a big of a turn off. What the hell were they thinking of?

iPhone has always, like the Mac's been design masterpieces.

But this is so so so digustingly ugly. That white band. Looks like a Wallmart phone :-( Hope it's a trick or a real bad joke.

Glad I get it for free....

I'm not jazzed up about that. I can see that catching lint and other stuff that ends up in your pocket.

Seems the 5.5" is a done deal now.

All looking good for the 5.5" iPhone. It sounds like a lot of people dislike the design... But, Apple, like they always do, will make it look sexy. The lines will probally blend with the design to create a sort of seamless design.

I don't wanna sound like a hipster, but seriously why 5.5, who in the damn world has hands that big and can still use their phone with 1 hand. What happened to small and comfortable to use after taking it out of your pocket?

What ever happened to technology having to get smaller and smaller, why are we going in the opposite direction? only to realise later that we want things smaller again because it's all too big.
Maybe that's the reason they release to versions... Many wants big phones. Apple has to follow to sell, to make their shareholders happy :-)

in the video below, which looks genuine, it doesn't look that bad - I suspect most people will get used to it!

Wait until you see the final finished product. Apple will make it sexy. The bands won't be as noticeable.

yea i like iOS but for a 5.5" i would go with a Note 4 because it is more compact for a bigger screen. I hoped Apple will nailed it, but 158mm tall ?????? it's almost the standards for 6" phablets

----------

The 4.7" is ok....i would love for a 134 tall but it's ok

The note 4 hasn't been released yet and I've not seen any rumors on it, how can you say it will be more compact, or did I miss something about the Note 4?

I hear you, but personally I'll reserve final judgement until I see the finished piece.

How cool would it be if these leaks are from decoy prototypes apple has created to mislead, and the actual iphone design will be something revolutionary different (using the parts we have seen, not the casing).
Like a painted or sintered unibody without any visible gaps, or return to the iphone 4 idea with liquid metal rims and sapphire laminated front and back glass...

Or, or ... apple may have a new trick. They started to copy what the automobile industry does to there prototypes.

I hope this is the case.
While some manufacturers do make incredibly ugly prototypes, read Toyota Supra, most on road prototypes are ugly because they hare designed to hide the design while road testing. I wouldn't put it past apple to drop a few hundred million on fake prototyping.

Note 3 has the same 5.7" so i don't think they will make it even bigger. But still 158mm vs 152mm

wow, this is the ugliest iPhone to day. I cant believe Apple choose to not make the phones 1 mm thicker to avoid the protruding camera. It is not like an additional 1 mm thickness would have any impact on the design, instead they came up with a design that is not only ugly but looks like an afterthought.
I was going to upgrade from my iPhone 5S as I really need a bigger screen, but this design is definitely no very appealing and it will make me think twice before I make a jump and upgrade - all of sudden most android and WP phones do not look half bad compare to this iPhone 6 crap.

That's what worries me. The latest iPod touch is probably one of Apple's worst designs in recent memory and it looks a lot like the iPhone design leaks. But hey, no Steve no veto it seems like.

I really hope that camera lens will pop out up to 1mm when you make some optical zoom or something

I really hope you're secretly Jony Ive, because if this gets released as it looks in all the leaks... I fear for Apple... This is their main product. Their bestseller... And if it looks like this... That's not good.

just as a reference: That means the 4.7 iPhone is pretty exactly the size of the HTC One M7 (but thinner)
