    It's small, yet classy.

    I love love love the polished aluminum apple sign inserted in the back cover.

    It is a 100% throwback to the original iPhone. Should have kept mine!

    Nevertheless, a cool feature and the reason I'm getting a clear shell case for it. Much better that the paint on my iphone 5.

    Any others like it?:apple:

    I liked the shiny edges. I am afraid that the apple logo will scratch easy and look bad after a few weeks. It's my least favorite feature.

    Minor but I really like the new volume buttons.

    Put a clear scratch guard skin on it, and you're good to go. That's what I ended up doing.

    Anyway, I definitely like that it's smaller, yet the screen size is the same.

    The diamond-cut chamfered edges - they just catch the light now and then and look really nice :)

    I never understood why they stuck with the plastic buttons for so long on such a premium device.

    Wait the apple logo is painted on, is that just Silver ones? I have the Space Grey it's away from me now but don't recall it being painted almost feels like a rubber/plastic decal

    An obvious one from me but the slimmer form factor

    Me neither. But I figured they must have had a good reason.

    I don't think so, if you look at the ifixit teardown they show a photo with the inside of the back cover....

    You can see the apple in there. Looks as if the apple is cut out of the back and filled with a different metal.

    It could still be a cutout sticker material at least that's what mine feels like

    Isn't the Apple logo a plastic window for WiFi signal to pass through?
