  1. Many expected Apple to release an iPhone with a larger screen but with this year’s refresh now in the history books, all sights have turned to the iPhone 6. At least one analyst now believes we will see a larger...

    Amazing! this user generated, mock up render of an iphone 6 that in no way will look like the actual iphone 6 DOES look like a samsung! its rounded-rectangular prism shape with a rectangular screen just screams samsung!

    :p

  5. Holy cow, such innovation! Surely Steve Jobs would have loved this. Here's to the new Apple commercials leading the herds of sheep to a 4.8 inch screen now being the best sized phone for your limbs to hold.

    I think they should offer the current size and the larger size. Choice is where its at. I love the size of my iPhone 5 but I would like to try a larger one just to see what I prefer. I think making the current iPhone even lighter while improving battery life would be awesome too.

    *yawn*
    Looks like an iPhone 5S with a smaller bezel to me. Doesn't matter what the next iPhone will look like. The UI will be the same as well as the home screen, just like all the others before it. Curved displays will annihilate anything Apple plans to do with the next iPhone.

    It's funny, a couple of years ago it looked like Android was trying as hard as possible to be like the iPhone. Now days, it looks the opposite :p
     
     
  12. I could hear Jony Ive now, "Beautifully, Unapologetically Bigger Screen"...!

    So true. I wonder if Samsung will sue them because it surely looks like a Galaxy.

    Old Nokia that is financially so far behind Apple, managed to make all sort of phones and fill the market with many choices, yet Apple only manages a small little screen. They basically only have 3 phones on the market and none of them have big screens. By the way I am not a WP user.

    It still won't have Total Commander and an option for decent keyboards, so sorry, it won't be for me.

    Do you really think Apple will give you choices? Apple and options are antonyms. This is how Apple functions:

    "You are my customer. You must take this phone and only this phone. You 'will' like it. Remember, we know what you want. Do not get confused with choices, especially not with other companies' standards like micro USB. We alone know what is good for you. When the day comes that we think you need a bigger phone, then we 'will' convince you to buy it. Do not worry!

    You do not need a better keyboard to type with. Those other options, like showing lower case when you are in lowercase, are unnecessary for you. Remember, we know better. Our rule is that if you have our products, you are cool. That is all that matters. And do not worry, we will take good care of your money, you do not know how to spend it anyway. If we have more money, it will be best for you. We are not thinking about ourselves, just you, our loyal servant."

    I see dissension in the ranks!!! Some iPone users want choices. Red alert at Apple!!!!

    That concept is a blatant rip off of HTC One.

    I cant stop laughing. You all keep calling it blatent rip offs of Samsung's galaxy phones or the HTC one or something along those lines- ITS A ROUNDED RECTANGULAR BOX. WITH A RECTANGULAR SCREEN ON IT. SPEAKER AND CAMERA ON TOP, SOME SORT OF BUTTON(S) ON BOTTOM.

    The vast majority of smartphones look like this....

    And to point out what you said in your first post... it's not even a real picture!

    I guess if anything it points out how conditioned we are to call a smartphone a rip off if it's just generally similar. Imagine if we did that with TVs and cars.

    I take it with a pinch of salt. I couldn't care less about the next iPhone.
     
  20. I don't care that you don't care. What is your point.

    Who cares what you care. Don't you use exclamation marks in your posts? If you don't see my point then it's obvious that you should be under supervision. Stop trolling and posting inane posts! Try doing something constructive for a change.

    I am. I am giving you advice. Going into articles to express your disinterest is a total waste of time. Don't do it anymore.

    If he's disinterested that's still his opinion. How has his opinion hurt you? Relax.
