    Apple better do something good with the next iPhone, and quick. If they don't, the competition is going to come in and destroy them. Far better rival phones are popping up left and right, such as the Samsung Galaxy 3. The galaxy s3 has faster mobile networking through LTE support, a far faster quad core CPU, a better GPU, double the ram, a larger battery, a higher resolution and larger screen, better wifi support with access to 5ghz bands, better front and rear cameras, NFC support, an SD slot that will allow up to 128Gb of memory, etc... Why any one would buy any iPhone at this point is a mystery.

    So the front and back "bezel" are at an unmatched height? Does that bother anyone else?

    I'm not sure how I feel about the two tone back. And is that a headphone jack on the bottom like the iPod Touch? That would be rather annoying :/. Looks like they are indeed going with the rumored new connector. Does it look like micro USB or is it something different?

    Not really a big fan of the non uniform back. I'd rather have all of 1 material/color honestly.

    I'm not in love with what I see here, but the truth is that it doesn't really matter since I'll wrap my iPhone in a case anyway.

    I would assume they create things like this during production...kind of like a car with weird paneling to attempt to cover up the real deal. I hope anyway.

    So is this "tall" or not? Also, why the hell is the middle section of the back a different color than the rest? Isn't Apple going towards simplifying things, rather than adding colors and seams?

    You don't understand. That design would allow your iPhone to double as a Magic Mouse.

    The two-tone does seem odd. It makes the front and back look identical (with the screen turned off).

    The headphone jack at the bottom make SO much more sense. A very welcome improvement.

    No one has mentioned the reason for the two-tone back yet. Are we seeing an extension of antennae's (as seen on the top down view) bleeding through the partially-opaque glass back?

    Somebody is getting fired with a ****** design as this, the first signs that Apple is going down-hill. The stretched simply looks ridiculous and the holes at the bottom look cheap. But wait it's posted by Mark Fackface of 9to5Mac so it is FAKE.

    I'd attribute it to the lighting and the photograph quality, honestly. The white balance of the photo is very visibly skewed toward yellow.

    If the photo was taken under incandescent, rather than flourescent, light that would explain why it looks yellow-white instead of metallic silver. (The uBreakiFix photos do look metallic silver.)

    Again, I don't understand the mismatching colors at all. Why a rounded rectangle would be sliced in half by a blocky different color is beyond me.

    Does anyone else think the large speaker holes and horrifying back plate screams "cheap"? There has to be someone else!

    The logo on the white iphone in the previous leaks were black and now they seem to be silver or white? Seems like more of a mockup based on leaks rather than an actual photo. Also, are there any dimensions on the front panel?

    Does anyone else find it strange that the apple on the white model in this photo is grayish with black iPhone letters, whereas in the previous article's picture it was black like the iPhone letters?
