you will be missed
I will not miss the chamfered edges. My iPhone 5 is in great condition except for some small nicks in the chamfered edge. I think it was a poor design from the start. If you remember, the iPhone 5 launch was marred by reports of the edges being damaged out of the box. I much prefer the rounded edges of the leaked iPhone 6 design.
I was just thinking about that when I looked at my destroyed edges on multiple phones.
Indeed you will be!
RIP standing your phone up on flat surfaces
Agree on the iPhone 5 front, however when they got to the 5s, the chipping and scratching is MUCH less of an issue.
What do you expect? Aluminum is a very soft metal. I am an aerospace machinist. We cut hard metals like inconel alloys daily... and we use aluminum for work holding because it is softer than the material it is holding and and will not leave tool marks on the workpiece material.
That's how they get you to buy a stand
Or a case, which almost anyone does anyway...
I'll be glad to see them gone, rounded edges are much more comfortable. My sister has a 5C and it feels so much more comfy using it than my 5s
Cool, can you reinforce my 5S to make it indestructible?
I like the chamfered edges, but yes, they are very prone to damage, and for me they also get kind of dirty and they are extremely hard for me to clean.
RIP to the straight sides on the 4/4s. I can't believe how many marks my 5s has on it given that it's been in a case the whole time and removed only occasionally when changing the screen protector.
I know right... RIP chamfered edge bruh
LULZ yup that too
uhm my 5 and 5s were perfect...
I'm surprised it's going away. I was expecting basically a smaller iPad. It makes me wonder if the iPad will also eschew them. Looking back on the iPad Air/Mini and iPhone 5/5s, will all that polishing look silly and gaudy? The "jewelery era" is what we'll call it.
My iPhone 5 had nicks on the edges when I received it new in the box, and it's gotten a few more even though I always use a case.
So yeah, good riddance.
Its ok Samsung has that now, suckers..
I don't know what people do to their phones, but 5 and my 5S are still in pristine condition, chamfered edges and all.
No, I don't use a case, I like the way the phone feels in my hand. I just keep it in a pocket by itself (no keys, change, headphones, receipts, anything), don't set it on hard surfaces, and I don't drop it. I figure if people stopped tossing their phone around like it was a lego toy, it'd hold up better?
I'll miss the chamfered edges as well, though I'm sure I'll love the 6 just as much in its own right.
I'm not a fan of the rounded edges on what we are seeing in leaks. I thing the clean cut edges give the phone a classy look.
Completely agree . . . Apple got it wrong with the 5.
I'm another one that won't miss it... makes the phone uncomfortable to hold for any long period of time.
I actually will miss them. I only have two nicks on my 5S edges, but I still think it looks great.
I guess it will feel better holding it, but the rounded edges just won't look as good IMO
Whatever this thick plastic band around the screen is, I don't think it's good.
Not by me. I bought an iPhone 3GS instead of a 4 because of that ugly metal edge. Last year I replaced the 3GS with a 5c. I would have paid 5S money if the 5S had a rounded body, even a plastic one like either the 3GS or the 5C.
I smooth, rounded body and 128GB storage will definitely throw me under the iPhone 6 bus.
Certainly not going to miss the unpleasantly sharp edges that leave your ears sore after a few minutes.
