The white iPhone 5 looks like a piece of jewelry.

I skipped the 4th generation, but I am still going to say the iPhone 4.

The black iPhone 5 is far and away the prettiest iPhone so far.

The iPhone 4 (and 4S) is a distant second.

I like the look of the 4/4S but I think the 5 looks nice too. I haven't had a chance to handle a 5 that's out of the case though. I may or may not prefer it.

Hehe! I love these reactions!^^ take a deep breath and slowly exhale.
But seriously, how can u say the 5 makes the 4 look ugly?? I know everyone is entitled to an opinion, but c'mon...there is not one "fugly" aspect to the 4's design. Its arguably the most beautifully designed device in the (short) history of devices.

With a name like yours, seems like you'd admire the 'cheap plastic looks and feel(s)' of the iPhone 5/iPad mini...no?

Right there with ya. I've been a bit nostalgic with a couple of our 'older' iPhones. I managed to hang on to one of our originals, the iPhone 3 and a 3GS. I'm going to keep 'em. My wife is still enjoying her 4s...I love the '5'. It's an engineering marvel IMHO. Not sure why people like 'plasicphyte' find the design so 'tacky'. It's anything but.

I guess it sure makes you happy that the folks in charge of design are in charge of design!

IMO, Apple has done an incredible job updating the design, keeping it fresh, shaving weight, adding power and continued improvement of the aesthetic bar. Other manufacturers have a long LONG way to go to match the iPhone in any of these factors. iOS itself is subjective. The build quality...objective. It's hand's down the best designed mobile communications device in history. Every iteration of the iPhone trumps the other manufacturers offerings. Nokia has approached the design finesse of Apple...no one else has come close.

I would have to say the original iPhone or the iPhone 5. Both great in different ways.

The iPhone 5 is clearly the best-looking. And that's not a matter of opinion; it's a fact!!!

As the starter of the thread I was trying to gather statistics but you guys have just managed to confuse me.

There is not even a trace of general consensus regarding what I can pick to be topping as the nicest iPhone.

Each one has its own design cues that makes it great. I honestly couldn't pick but I would say 5 is the best so far. Before the 5, 4 was great because its a major redesign. But as great the 4 is, 5 made it sexier and sleeker. I love both the glass and aluminum myself so I'm torn.

In hindsight, adding a poll may have helped with this.

This thread really should have a poll.

My fav is the iPhone 4. I loved my iPhone 4 and thought it had the perfect dimensions, weight, and look. I have an iPhone 5 now, but feel its slightly too tall and light. The aluminum on the back of my iPhone 5 also has worn down so much more quickly than the glass back of the iPhone 4, which looked perfect after two years of use.

Have to say IPHONE4 at its time. It was a true marvel of technology and an unbelievable work of design genius.
