iPhone 6 Concept

I found this rather neat concept for iPhone 6, just thought I would share it as is rather impressive. I know there are a ton of concepts on YouTube, I am not promoting anyone, it's just one of the better ones I have seen...

I actually like it, and it has the 4.2 inch width to boot without widening the darn thing

Pass. Besides, that is an aluminum back glued to plastic sides. iP5 does a better job at providing an aluminum unibody.

And I guess it's just me who is annoyed by the "diagonal" sides and lack of horizontal symmetry.

I'm almost positive speakers on the back will not happen. Not very impressed with the concept, seems very dull to me.

Well it's basically the same as the iPhone 5 only thinner and a larger screen, apart from those terrible rear speakers, it's just a logical progression from the existing design, no?

I agree, this is a very good implementation of the varied materials. Now that I've had mine a few days, I've noticed the comfort level is also one of the best I've experienced.

The folks saying they aren't impressed make me smile. This is the iPhone 5 with a larger screen crammed into the same body. The only real difference is that the speakers are on back (this would be a bad idea IMO). Otherwise, same phone! I guess you're unimpressed with teniohone 5 too? If so, that's fair.

Other than the thinner bezel (which I do like), don't like the larger screen, and absolutely hate the speakers on the back. Seriously, why?

This is actually one of the laziest mockups ive ever seen of a future iPhone.

I guess they're not impressed because it isn't a very original idea, a concept should have something interesting whereas this doesn't.

I like it. Just not the speakers on lower back. I'm holding my 5 as I type this and my fingers would be covering both speakers.

to mimic others....the speaker location is atrocious. Anyone releasing a smart phones needs to realize that speakers on the back makes zero sense. That mockup looks like an iphone 5 w/ no home button. I would assume apple will always keep the home button especially now if the finger print sensor is true.

Even the iPad 4 has its speakers facing away from the user. Not good and the reason I returned it a day or so later. Having the speakers facing the user is always a smart thing to have. Other than that, I still like the concept

Somewhat related. I was watching shark tank one day and the guy was pitching a magnetic plastic piece that cupped the back off the ipad to make the sound project towards you.

Yeah, I wasn't that impressed with the iPhone 5 which is why I didn't purchase it.

The thread is called "iPhone 6 Concept." This implies the creator tried to invent something new. (Otherwise they would have called it their "iPhone 5S Concept.")

But as you say, it's basically the same thing. So, yes, it's unimpressive for someone to say "here's something new and it's the same."

Absolutely none of that says anything about whether or not we like the iPhone 5. That's a complete non sequitur.

That iPhone 6 concept looks more like a Phablet than today's phablets.

Where did I say "if you don't like this it implies you don't like the iPhone 5"? Based on precious iPhone releases, we should expect no physical changes to the next iPhone. Here, we did see some, namely in making the screen bigger while keeping the base size the same, yet it's considered unimpressive. I find that odd, for many reasons, not the least of which people saying the same thing about the REAL iPhone 5, until it was proven true. Non sequitur? Not in my opinion.

need to go to 4.5 or 4.7" before I would buy it, that being said, I do think the color options is a neat idea though, just wish we knew what iOS7 looks like, the sound of Flat design is worrying me that they will do the same thing as they did with OSX Sl to Lion by getting rid of all the colorful icons and making them all greyed out?

Boring

You're bored of iOS7 which is something you haven't seen or know about yet?
