So, what do you think is the best designed iPhone model, and why? You can pick between the original 2g and the 5s (NO IPHONE 6 COMMENTS!!!! Lol!!) :) So, whats your favorite iPhone model?

I personally love the design of the 5s the best. I like the ring around the home button, and I like the two tone back :D

I voted for the 3GS as nothing looked so good as opening that box and setting it up for the first time. I also enjoyed the overall feel. I remember thinking too at the time how much faster it was than the 3G. First white iPhone I owned.

Good memories.

iPhone 5. Metal, Black/Slate, reminiscent of the monolith from the movie 2001.

iPhone 5S. The gold one just looks badass. I've gotten plenty of compliments on my 5S. I also loved the iPhone 4 design. Man that thing was beautiful

The 5S....I'd say the 5 but you know.....fingerprint sensor looks nice on the 5S.
I like the 2-tone back so I guess you could say the 5 too because that's the phone that started that design.

Every design is hated like crazy before they come out. Look at the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5 threads that contain leaks of the phone before it came out. It's filled with "that's so ugly" "look at those ugly antenna slits" among other things.

Now people love them....hmm. I guess people can change as time changes.

I voted 5c. I had a hard time deciding between 2G and 5c but based purely on design, I think I like the 5c better. Really, though, what I'd like is a matte black 5c in 3.5" form factor. :)

Based purely on visuals, I think the 4/4S looks prettiest. I just prefer the feel of curvier phones in my hand. :p

I have two favorites, however I voted for the original iPhone. I loved the aluminum back. The other favorite was the 4, I really liked the glass front and back.

I was planning to get the 6 when my Nexus 4 conks out, but I'm bummed about the leaks of the 6's design. I really like the 5s' squared edges in particular.

I like the design of the 5, but the length-width ratio is just weird to me, Im going to say the 4/4s design was probably my favorite so far, though I could do without the silver bumper around. I would say the ratio of the 4/4s with the style of the 5 would be a beast combo to have. I like simple block-like designs. I like phones that I can sit on its side with ease :p

Also I personally LOVE the design of the original iPad. If the back were a tad bit flatter, it would be my ideal design for a tablet.

I recently got a GS4 for my job. I've been frustrated with the lack of horizontal pixels before and after Retina displays came out so I can't pick from your list. I would pick iPhone 6 if it comes out with 768 or more horizontal pixels (to make reading email and web pages in landscape possible without zooming).

As for design, I would rank iPhone 5S as second best and iPhone 5 / 5c tied for third. When (if?) you update your poll to include iPhone 6, I will happily cast my vote then.

Thanks for mentioning that. I wasn't aware of that factor.
