    Just look at the official comparison photos from the Apple website: huge antenna bands, protruding camera, generally unattractive back; ugh. What do you think?

    I'm not liking the silver back, but the front is down right gorgeous. Since I usually look at the front of my iPhone and the back is hidden by a case - no biggie for me.

    I actually like it.

    Specially against the two tone (black) of my iPhone 5.

    I don't care for the gold at all, but the space gray looks okay in my book. I love the rounded edges! I'll likely start out with a leather case, too, so the back of the phone is largely irrelevant to me as well. I do wish the space gray was a bit darker though.

    Actually, I'm a huge fan of the iPhone 6 design.
    Space Grey seems to be the best, though.

    I have never liked the leaks, same for this product. By comparison, I would choose the brick style of the iPhone 4 to 5S anytime, over that too much rounded design.

    I must say that I quite like it, front to back. I see a lot of people complaining about the lines and the protruding camera but those don't bother me. This is all subjective talk, but it's rare that Apple releases a product that's "ugly" IMO. I can't tell from the looks of it, but I'm guessing the back is a matte finish instead of gloss, which I'm very happy to see.

    Surprisingly the Space Grey might be the best looking one this time around. I'll have to wait and see them all in person first though.

    I like the new design. The Space Grey definitely looks really sleek but I currently have a Space Grey 5s. I plan on buying a gold 6 Plus and I am really excited. And this is the first year that my husband decided to get the new model phone so he will be getting the Space Grey 6.

    Not too keen on the back but hey, it's on the back! The front is gorgeous though with the curved glass, can't wait to get my hands on one.

    They are all fine except the gold one. The gold and white lines dont go that well.

    It's ok. I think you have to see it to gauge it

    Judging beauty from a distance can get you into to trouble.....trust me :eek:

    I don't think they look bad at all really. The Space Gray is my favorite. The gold doesn't translate as well with the new design and size imo.

    I really think it looks great, the only thing I wish was changed is the protruding camera lens. aside from that, I can't wait to get it in my hands.

    The space grey doesn't look very grey...wish Apple would stop cheaping out on the coating.

    Apple designs have always been understated and minimalist so no surprise here really.

    I actually like to two tone of the 5S pictured a lot. But I also like the 6.

    Yep. The antenna bands were ugly before the launch, and they're ugly still. (I was never a huge fan of the 5's glass panels either, but who'd have thought they'd find a way to make it look even worse?) A shame, because in other respects, it looks good. Anyway, I'll be buying one and sticking a case on it (which also fixes the protruding camera), so I voted 'meh'.

    I think they look good, they are just way too big. There doesn't seem to be that much change from the 5S as far as design goes beyond making it bigger.
