The iPhone 6/6 Plus designs are nauseating. Just compare the 5s with the newer phones in this photo from Apple. Who here thinks Jony Ive should be fired?

You're in the severe minority. Something like 99% of people are commenting how much they love how beautiful the new iPhones are. And I have to agree, these are the best iPhones ever made. Scratch that, these are the most amazing phones ever made - both in terms of looks, features, and cutting-edge technologies.

Please delete this pointless thread. Haven't you already created a thread like this ? He's not going to be fired and he's not going to have his knighthood removed. Just the very fact that you posted this ridiculous thread proves how little you know about knighthood's.

They're just featureless rectangular slabs. I find them acceptable looking.

But J. Ive got off easy, there's no style, nothing like he's capable of.

Self absorbed and too important to risk getting stressed, he's probably busy resting after creating the Mac Pro.

What does his knighthood have to do with not liking a smartphone that he designed?
The original thread was deleted for linking to a Change.org petition.

Ive was knighted for "services to design," so it follows that that knighthood can and should be revoked for the egregious disservice to design that is the iPhone 6.

You forgot the option;

"I'm a moron for creating this poll"
Thanks!

I'm an Android guy and Nexus fan myself, but will admit the iPhone 4 was an amazing looking and beautiful designed smartphone. And again the iPhone 5 was another great looking phone.

But this iPhone 6, seems like they gave up on the design, it's very average, just OK. Very forgettable design. And almost looks like a poor wannabe copy of the HTC One series.

Starting to think nothing will match the iconic iPhone 4 design in terms of wow-factor at the time. This new design is just average.

The only thing I don't like is the protruding camera. The rest is acceptable but nothing to write home about.

It has a sleek, clean, and very minimalist design, which is what Apple is known for. Not sure what you were expecting.
Sorry, but no. The award for sleek and minimalistic design goes to the LG G3 this year.

This iPhone 6 just looks too big and bloated at this new size now. Those bezels, my God just hideous on these larger iPhone's. The 5.5" iPhone 6 Plus is bigger than the Note 4 at 5.7", and the LG G3 at the same 5.5" screen size as the Plus, looks significantly smaller.

Agree that the white iPhone 4 might have been Apple's best looking phone to date, and even the Space Grey rear of the iPhone 5S looks 100 times better than the rear of the iPhone 6.

Design doesn't blow me away but I don't think its that bad.

Poll is so bias and leading its only going to make you look silly as people vote for your obvious sarcasm.

Talk about over dramatics. It's a phone. It is not a tragedy. People are not dying because of the lines. Please repeat after me "It's a phone" Breathe in. Breathe out. Repeat.
