I threw iOS launcher on my HTC One M7 for the heck of it. Considering that is a 4.7" screen and the size with bezels is about the same and the material it is made from, I think that is as close as one can get. The 6 is thinner though.

I dont think they could make this with less bezel. The whole components for the touchID and the optical image stabilization need that much space on the top and bottom. But personally I don't think the iPhone 6 has the perfect size. You can pretty much fit every phone in your jeans front pocket but you can't always sit comfortable with them. For the perfect size...I would say the Samsung Galaxy Alpha has the point here.

Slim jeans with a fairly large phone in the front pocket is a stretch. Possible to be arrested for "too much bulge". :)

Love or hate Samsung, the Galaxy Alpha shows how small a phone with a 4.7" screen can be and is more the size the 6 should have been IMO.

4.7" is too small. You need something over 5" to run with the big dogs.
no we don't. People aren't going to think you're really cool if you have a big phone. In fact you will look really funny if you have small hands. 4.7 to 5.1 inches phone screen is a good size. Anything larger than that will begin to interfere with your daily activities in life. If you have an iPad why not use the personal hotspot and browse the Web with your iPad?

no we don't...
Yes you do. If you are going to run with the big dogs, you need a big phone. If you get the little phone, you get to run with the little dogs. It's quite simple.

That's ok, the little dogs are cool. They're cute. But the big dogs are bigger. Nothing to be ashamed of.

Agree. The i6's case needs to go on a diet. Guessing we won't see that until the iPhone 7 though.

Jesus christ. Galaxy alpha is thinner than iphone 6 and it still manages to have removable battery.

And to someone who thought they should've bought lg g3 because of the thin bezel. Believe me. The G3 is too wide to use with one hand. I hated it.

Yeah, too much bezel. Makes me think I should have gotten the LG G3.
Unless apple adopted the Galaxy button, there's no way they can reduce bezel size and maintain symmetry that's important in aesthetics. The G3 had to increase the size of the top status bar to compensate for the amount of screen space the bottom android row has otherwise it looks absolutely retarded when that much asymmetry exists. also, lol @ wanting an LG. i've owned dozens of LG products and they were garbage, including the 2012 15" rMBP (had to get the LG screen replaced because of burn in)

Go big or go home! :D

I know some people really wanted to stay at 4" but I think they will still like their 4.7". For me it's 5.5"

Ya, but chamfered edges are so last generation.

That was me. I had tried the G3 in store and it was really too big for me too. I liked everything else about it. That's when I decided to wait for the 4.7" iphone.

Seems almost impossible to get a flagship phone these days in a 5" or less size. I guess with the larger sizes, it makes it easier to include higher end items like a larger battery and other hardware that can't fit into a sub 5" phone.
