Okay, so those high-resolution renderings are out here are my takes: 1. Shape and Size The size is 4" which doesn't seem too big. I certainly do hope Apple don't jump on the boat samsung is in, with the fairly bizarre idea that bigger is better in the mobile world. Soo, I'd say that samsung might as well merge the galaxy S line and the note. But to keep it on topic, 4" should be the max. That size would be good. Although I would prefer apple to keep the 3:2 aspect ratio and reduce fragmentation. But I also see some daily weird android fans saying that this iPhone screen is too long. Haha, and their android phone uses the same aspect ratio. The shape seems to retain its sleekness by being thinner and flat. If it were teardrop, the iPhone would lose one of its core features where any orientation is okay. With a teardrop, it would feel good in portrait but very strange and uneven on landscape. 2. Materials Their use of metal as the main material is really good. I really like the way it looks. No more would a case be needed. How does anyone know that the strips are plastic? They could be ceramics. Don't draw a conclusion this early. Another thing I've seen weird android fans do. They criticize the fact that apple have used plastic even though its not a certainty and go to their 100% plastic android phones. Haha again. I guess some people just can't stand Apple's success, and find whatever fault they can.
