    I love the original iPhone. Love it's simplicity, quality, but most of all it's design. I still think the original had a better design than the 3G, 4, or 5, and when I saw the 5 I was glad to see some of the original's design had come back! Thought some that miss their first iphone would be happy to see a side-by-side of the iPhone and iPhone 5. Excuse the iPhone 4 pictures.

    The speaker grills are back. Hated them at first but they grew on me quick

    The 5 isn't even the depth of the original's backplate!

    The 5-year-old phone has some bruises but isn't the most battered thing around. Hopefully the 5 looks this good in 5 years.

    Nice pics! :)

    P.S. I never had one but the iPhone 2G looks ugly as sin compared to today's standards and the 5 ;)

    Thanks for these! It's certainly an interesting comparison. Personally, however, I think that the iPhone 5 is the best-looking of the lot, but I don't deny that the original is a technological masterpiece.

    It's nice that elements of the first design are back, while retaining the best aspects of the 4/4S.

    the 2G is the 5 except the edges so I fail to see your point here sir.
