I just pulled out my 4s out of the case it's been sitting in for the last three years or so that I could use it exclusively as a wifi remote for my projection system while teaching. I'm telling you, I just fell in love with the design of that phone all over again.

The glass front and back...

The brushed stainless look of the frame...

The round volume buttons...

The sheer symmetrical beauty of the shape matched with the contrast of the front/back with the frame...


Of all the iPhones I've owned, I think clearly this is my favorite look/feel.

So which design is your favorite over the years?

The 5 series...I loved the black on black. Not a fan of the white bands on the 6 but will upgrade for the improved battery life and screen. I hope the 7 combines designs and stats. When the 5 and 5s gold came out, I had to have it. Now, I want a larger screen but am not entirely in love with the design of the back.

4s (because it came in white) and 5/5s (chamfered edge/thinner/elegant). 4 series looked like a Leica camera and 5 series like a piece of jewelry. I love my 6 Plus but not for its design (although I do really like the curved glass....)

Was the 5 series. The glass panels, thinner antenna lines... everything screamed luxury.

Now it is the 6 series. Despite the antenna lines, I think its the sleekest one yet after seeing the thickness of the 5 in store.

4/4S has been the highlight of the series. Then 5/5S. Slate 5 looks-wise, and general 5S reliability-wise.

4/4s, toughest, classiest smartphone design ever built. Sent from my iPad.

The 4/4S design is still my favorite. That thing was nothing short of beautiful. The black iPhone 5 and gold 5S are also up there too. Both looked sooooo damn classy. And you guys already know how I feel about the space gray 6/6+ #

What do you feel about the space gray 6/6+?

I like the iPhone 6 also because it reminds me of first gen ipod touch.

First gen and the 4.

3G was the worst. I kind of like the 5, but the tall screen looks odd.

The 6 and 6 Plus are my favorite. The curved glass adds so much to the appearance, in my opinion.

4/4S for me. Was recently looking at a coworker's black 4S and was blown away by the beauty and quality.

The 6 series is reminiscent of the original model except the 6 screen feels like egg shell. :mad:

I loved the white 4S I had, but honestly the 6 is just so much beyond any of the previous models, and it's not even close.

6, no question. Super thin, metal body, rounded edges, curved screen, sapphire camera lense and home button, huge screen. Winner.

5S-the touch ID home BUTTON puts it over the top. I miss the square edges.
