If you look at this video It's all about the sides. The way everything is darker and sleeker and even more minimal. I like the aesthetics of the shape, and also the aesthetics of the taper of the roundness coming from the flatness to the sides. The materials will be the final gauge, but I like it. I could imagine feeling cool with it. Picking it up, admiring it. Most of all I love the two tone back and the metallic tone of it. It reminds me of a Michael Coors belt material. Or some high fashion elegant accessory. ..maybe Prada or something if they made a phone. The elongated thing is even more pleasant from the back because it creates a soothing ratio. I'm starting to see what they had in mind when they designed it and I'm starting to like the effect. Seeing videos is a lot more significant than just seeing still photos. The back and sides are significantly beutiful in an understated way. The glass era is over. Long live metallic-ness!!!
