If these pictures end up the final retail production product, then no iPhone 5 for me.

A lot of iPhone users say that lol. I hated the way the iPhone 4 looked when the pictures leaked, I hoped with all my might that wasn't the final product, and when it was I thought no way in heck I'd like to own that weird looking iPhone. Ended up getting it and for some reason now I think it's one of the sleekest looking phones in the smartphone market. Maybe that will be the case for this upcoming iPhone too

I agree. Even though I'm not a fan of matte surfaces on my phones, I hope I'll like it as much as I like the glass on my iP4. I kind of feel like it's not as elegant though with that two-tone back...maybe I have to watch the video more.

I think it'll be very nice, and feel very solid as the midframe and rear cover are now one piece. The black anodizing looks pretty cool and reflects light in an interesting way - sometimes it looks more black, sometimes it looks kind of silver. I hated the 3G/3GS because they felt cheap, the original iPhone felt solid and expensive, and so does the iPhone 4/4S. This phone will also feel very solid and cool to the touch, not cheap and plasticky.
The only thing that really turns me off is the screen is only a little bit bigger and would have fit perfectly with the 4/4S height if they'd shrank the top and bottom part of the bezel down a little. Instead, the bezels are the same size and they've made the phone extra long. I think it might look kind of weird being extra long and skinny. A lot of phones have bigger screens than this and a smaller bezel, I think a smaller bezel looks better. I also carry my iPhone in my pocket and it's already annoying enough when it goes sideways, it will be extra annoying if it were longer.
Unless it has some really compelling new features that are impossible to get on the 4S, I'd probably prefer to just get the 4S instead of the 5 on dimensions alone since I've always liked iPhones for their compactness.

I agree with the weird back color, I'd hate that.
