    If it's going to be taller only... I might consider the Android world...

    Nope. Why would apple make the 5 look like a 4? Fake China parts..
    If the iphone 5 look like that then Apple will ****ed as they would deserve to be for recycling the same design for 3 years.

    Looks like a nice screen! Loving it. Is the front camera on top or on the side? I cant tell.

    I'll be pissed. That looks horrible. I will be open to trying android again, if that's what it looks like

    Display is good enough for me. Luckily, there are no images of the rear side of the next-gen iPhone - which gives me some hope Apple might settle with an entirely different design.

    A lot of people need to prepare themselves for disappointment with this phone.

    I may have to go back to black if they are making the metal band around the side black too. that looks badass.

    I'd really consider switching to Android if the iPhone 5 is only a taller form factor. It looks retarded.

    Looks great. A four inch screen in a barely larger device, which is probably thinner too. What more could I ask for? If this is the real deal I'm ordering it new and unlocked the day it's for sale.

    It may be accurate, but that is one UGLY phone.

    I'm serious when I say, if this is the phone, I wonder if J Ive quit. There's no way he would want to be associated with this poor excuse for a phone.

    Making it taller, makes it narrow and that spells disaster.

    If that's true, then the new iPhone is taller and narrower than the previous version. Also: less space wasted on the bezel.

    Digging the black finish on the parts, too. Now make it thinner and more resistant (somehow) and it's a done deal!

    i think it is more of an illusion b.c it is elongated.

    It just looks weird and looks like it would feel weird in the hands. I can't image anything in portait mode would look right. I'm hoping this isn't the real iphone 5...

    Oh give it a rest already!

    If you wanna go Droid then hop on board now why don't ya? The S3 is a great phone so I've heard so go have the latest and greatest now and drop all this "if the new iPhone looks like 'this' or 'that' I'm switching to another platform" whining. Obviously you will not be happy with any "new" design that may be revealed.

    The rest of us will wait until Fall when the new iPhone is released.

    I happen to like the design myself and if this is it, then bring it on already!

    I know right? How many iPhone 4/4s's have been sold since release?

    And people are just going to drop Apple and RUN to android if the current design is enhanced with a larger screen, LTE, etc...

    ....riiight

    All of these parts keep adding up to the same design.

    Not sure if I 100% like it, but I'll wait until I officially see it to decide if it's worth the hate some people are giving it. :p
