    I didn't see a thread for this. However, if there actually is a thread will you mods close this one?

    The iPhone has seen a lot of iterations, with each having their own unique design (minus the S series, in which those have very little different design choices). What would you say is your favorite design, and why? Was it because of the form factor, screen size, one handed use, etc.

    I have only had an iPhone 4, 4S, and 5S. Between the three of those phones, I really like my 5S. The screen size and form factor are perfect and are what I would really like to see in the rumored iPhone 7 mini.

    Despite myself not owning a 6 or 6S, I already know I am not too fond of the design. My twin brother had a 6 Plus, and I purchased my mother a 6S 4.7 inch. Both of the devices definitely are fantastic in how they run, but both feel slippery and are harder to use due to size. I'm a guy with big hands, and even I find the 4.7 inch screen on the 6 and 6S too large and cannot use it one handed more. Heck, my favorite example of one handed mode is with my 5S. I am able to reach all corners of the screen with either hand, walk, plus hold and sip coffee in the other. Besides that, the 6 and 6s are not too nice looking. Due to these factors, the 6 or 6S are not for me...but I am glad to see that my mom and my brother love it.

    This thread comes up every month or so, but I'll gladly answer again. iPhone 4 was the best, hands down. I want Apple to return to glass back and front. For those that drop their phone, check out the iPhone 5C.

    Or, grab a tempered glass screen protector and a good case.

    Personally, I don't want to see a glass front or back again. Smudge city, even if you keep it in the best protection and clean it. The 4 and 4S do look quite nice when smudge free though.

    However, metal ftw.

    For the 4-inch phones I thought the iPhone 5s was the most beautiful one. Not the 5, but the 5s. And only because with the space gray model, which looked fantastic this way.

    However, my all-time favorite iPhone design is the 6/6s. Mostly the 6s, because of the Rose Gold model. I love that color so much, I think it fits perfectly with the design itself.

    I agree. I never had one but every time I get to hold one I'm blown away. The only thing that could surpass it is a completely sealed all glass wirelessly charging iPhone. Maybe someday.

    The iPhone 5 has to be my favorite device design. I still remember when I first got it. So light, slightly bigger screen, deeper black colorway, and the OS was fast.......

    I like the glass front and back of iPhone 4, the slate black colour of iPhone 5 and the screen size of iPhone 6 (4.7) lol.
    Casted my vote solely based on design and not screen size etc for the iPhone 4.

    Gold 5S. The 5 design was superb, and the gold ring around the home button on the 5S added a bit of elegance to it.

    First choice is the 5s. My second choice would be the 6.

    I'm stepping ahead on this one. If the iPhone 7 looked like this, it would be my favorite design. The latest designs have been boring.

    Ive had the 3GS, 4, 4s, 5s, and now 6s. Of all, the 4s is still my favorite. Couple it with Apple's bumper and it was an awesome phone. Sure, all others since are better and more powerful, but I love the glass back and still prefer the old 3.5" screen vs today's monsters.

    The silver iPhone 5s is still the nicest looking iPhone IMO, followed by the black iPhone 5.

    I might have a different opinion on the space gray iPhone 5s if the back glass matched the color of the aluminum.
