    I like the thinness and sleekness but I think the rounded edges make it look less sexy and stylish. Is there any way they could have made it with the same squared edges as the 4/5 but thinner and bigger? If so why didn't they?

    Also, would you have preferred it was smaller than the 6? I would love something between the 5 and 6, maybe 4.3/4.4, just slightly wider than the 5 and maybe a hair taller. The 6 is just slightly too big to hold and operate as comfortably as the 4/5.

    How bout you?

    More screen... less bezel.

    Perhaps a speaker on the front face?

    I would like the 6+ to be less tall/smaller bezels. I would like both to have the squared off shape of the 5/5s.

    Honestly,there is less money in it for Apple but I think making it more durable would be nice. Using the phone naked would be cool, but one drop and it's toast.

    The only thing I'd change about the 6 series is to make the Space Gray more black.

    That's not true, I dropped my 4S plenty and only broke the back glass once.

    Less noise reduction and less jpeg compression in camera.

    Higher pixel density on the 6.

    Smaller bezels, especially sides for more of that edge to edge screen look, plus anything that could be shaved off height still allowing for touch ID of course.

    I'm not sure a 4th color is really viable, but I like the silver and white but on the 6 Plus I don't case for the white front as much. A black front would reduce the obviousness of the size. Black is slimming. Would like a black front/silver back as I don't care for the space grey back.

    I don't like where the sleep/wake button is on the 6 Plus.
    I don't mind it being on the side, but at least put it a little ways further down so I don't keep hitting the volume up and down button on the other side with my other fingers.
    I've had this phone since launch day and still can't get used to it.

    Build in magnets along the side to not only support a Smart Cover like product, but also a better way to hold the phone in cases.

    No antenna breaks (or at least less noticeable, like thinner ones), no protruding camera and maybe some water resistance to it.

    Yes less bezel, making for a somewhat shorter phone! Antenna bands really don't help make the phone look attractive to me but an Apple Case solved along with the protruding camera lens.

    After a few weeks of ownership I'm looking more at the screen, and I love it.;)

    I love the aluminium unibody. But in terms of design, the one thing I would change is having a non-protruding camera lens. I can't imagine using my 6 without a case.

    I would make my 6+ thicker, with an even bigger, better battery. The battery is amazing, don't get wrong but I just don't get the whole super thin thing. Maybe even make it a bit wider. I get that it's a true HD 16:9 display but I won't be watching movies on it.

    Even the way it is, it is by far the best phone I've ever owned.
