    Iphone 5s was amazing by looks only , iphone 6 has bigger screen , better features ... But curves ?? I dont like curves and lines at back .. Some say its antenna .. Where was antenna in 3gs ? Iphone 4 ?? Were the antennaless phones ? Obviously not ... Its just design and i am not liking it #

    Is it possible that apple may drop minor but redesigned iphone this year ?

    As iphone 5s had new color .. Touch id ring , dual flash ...

    Can they remove lines from back of iphone ? And less curves .. Specially curves at edge of screen ..

    The curve does give a better grip. I'm sure apple put a lot of thought to their new design. I do feel like sharper edges would give the phone a cooler look, but I'm sure sooner or later, apple is going to redesign their phones again. They are always changing their phones for the better.

    I'm of the opinion that the 4/4S/5/5S were much nicer designs.

    Metal has a way of obstructing cellular and wifi signals. Keep in mind that iPhones didn't get metal backs until the iPhone 5.

    And no, there will almost certainly not be a redesign of the body.

    No but that doesn't mean that Apple is going to redesign for you and others who share that opinion.

    Anything's possible. Is it likely? Given history it seems doubtful. Why would Apple go through the hassle and expense of redesign just because some people "don't like curves"?

    I like those curves. I always found the 4 uncomfortable. The 5 was better, and the 6 feels great in my hand even though it's wider. I imagine the 6 in the width of the 5 would be very comfortable.

    Think of steering wheels. There's a reason they are rounded.

    I quite liked the design of my 4S. I would like to see Apple forget about "thinnest" and start focusing on a beefier battery.

    Antenna bands doesn't really bother me. I can't decide if the 6 or 5 is the better looking. As for antennas on older models. The 3GS had a plastic back with a shiny metal band/antenna going all the way around the front. The 4 had a glas back with a metal band/antenna going all the way around the sides. The 5 had a metal back but glas at the top or bottom for the antenna. The 6 ditched the glas and uses plastic on the back bands.

    The i4 and i5 felt like the build justified the premium price tag. They just looked and felt so much nicer than any other phone out there. I can't say that about the i6 sadly. The round edges, protruding camera and thinness just make it look like a cheaper product. It doesn't have anything build-wise over some of the top of the line Android devices now, and the look/feel doesn't wow me.

    Those antenna lines look dreadful and spoil what is otherwise a very attractive handset

    Just make another 4" phone or one no bigger than the 5s with less bezel and thinner and I'll drop my 128 six plus like a bad habit.

    Yeah, I would prefer to have the iPhone 5 shell, with my 6 plus size and hardware. Better grip, less worry of bending, looks more distinctive, and not ambiguous like the 6, no protruding cam lens.

    I still use the iPhone 5S. Every time I look at an iPhone 6, I see this:

    Hate the camera sticking out and hate the lines even more.

    The 5S and 4S remain the best iPhones Apple has produced.

    5S was the best design, we just need that design but a 4.7-5inch screen. :cool:
