To the people who hated the new design, from the leaked photos...

Now that you have seen numerous, higher quality pictures and have a better idea of what the new design really looks like, do you still hate it?

Personally, from the leaked pics, I thought it looked pretty nice, and now that I have seen better pictures of it, I REALLY like it, but I was curious if anybody had changed their opinion now that we can see what it really looks like. I'll certainly know better once I have it in my hands, but along with the new design, it also appears to be a really beautifully made piece of hardware.

I'm very anxious to get one when I'm able. I think launch day/week is going to be considerably worse than last time, and last time was pretty bad if I remember correctly.

Not only do they still hate it, they still think Apple leaked it.

People love it more when Jobs has it in his hands, rather than some reporter. He could hold a turd and some people would be tripping over themselves to own one...

I've actually changed. I thought it looked better from the leaks, and now looking at it, it looks weird, too long and square. I'm guessing when I have it in my hands my view will change though

I still don't really like the looks, but will be getting it, if only for Retina Display

Yeah, it's one of those products that doesn't photograph well. It's like the 3rd gen Nano which looked really hideous in ads. In real life it wasn't that bad.

I hated it, then it started to grow on me. Now i think it looks pretty slick!

I still prefer the first gen iPhone though. I think that was the best looking device apple has produced.

I'm still not a fan.

Maybe it's the sides. I don't mind the seams (or whatever Jobs called them for the antennas) but the thick stainless steal just doesn't do it for me.

There is also something about the back . . . I'm torn. I like it, but I don't . . . it's weird, I can't put my finger on it, but I'm just not sold on it.

(man, I can't wait to get bashed for this)

I didn't like it at first and really hoped it wasn't the final design, but now, I too think it's pretty sleek. I do think it would be perfect if they just tapered each pane of glass along the edges to give it a little less boxiness, but I realize this would probably make the glass more prone to cracking if dropped.

Well, the design grew on me. Except those round buttons. I guess I'll get used to those too. I still think the photoshop of it with the old rocker looked a lot better.

I still prefer the 3rd gen nano's shape. I just got a 5th gen and let me tell you, the 3rd gen fits in pockets a lot better and the shape means it is smaller really (the long size of the 5th makes it a lot more awkward to fit in pockets).

I'm annoyed Apple went back to the long shape.

I don't think anyone really cares, so you'll be waiting a long time to get "bashed."

I hope so, there are some threads where anyone who said a) they weren't going to get one or b) they weren't impressed with the new iPhone were reamed!

Getting it but don't like the blockiness

I didn't like the blockiness and i think I still won't like that. I like putting my iPhone naked in my front pocket and there was a natural smoothness with the old design. I think now the blockiness will stand out and I may feel forced to just get a belt case.

I didn't like the seams or the separate volume buttons. But never hated it, just doubted it's authenticity for the first couple of days.

But overall I do like it and I'm looking forward to owning one.

I was ambivalent and my wife did not like it. Now we both love it.
