Why are people crying around about the headphone jack so much? i would really like the answer haha. do people like the cable in the way of the screen? the auminum anodized backplate looks pretty slick and it'll be way more durable than glass. idk if this phone is too nice to put in a case or if it's beauty is worth a high dollar case to protect it. i really hope this is the iPhone 5.

I skipped the 4S as it was a waste to upgrade from the 4. Been waiting patiently for the next iPhone. If this is it...goodbye Apple it was fun while it lasted.If I can't mod it...I don't want it.

Ever since that rear panel 'leaked' I have been unable to believe that Apple would go with such a design. It looks *awful* with that two-tone back plate!!!
Also, it isn't a very radical redesign from the iPhone 4/4S. It's just longer with a different, uglier back plate, a new dock connector/grille and a different border that connects it all. It's practically the same form factor as 4/4S just longer and with minor design changes. I expect a little more from Apple when the next iPhone is finally launched...or we see a working version a la Gizmodo 2010

I really don't see why people are whining about the headphone jack being moved. I find it incredibly annoying to use my iPhone 4 with headphones while charging since I have things sticking out of both ends of the phone. On top of that, what's the big deal of moving it to the bottom? Instead of the cable sticking out of the top of the phone, it sticks out of the bottom. BIG DEAL.

Reading this makes me laugh. People talk as of apple is a new coming company that happens to magically have billions of dollars. Come on please I'm not a apple fan boy I'm A technology addict and you know what just sold my galaxy s3 on eBay I just can't stand android simple but that's me after 6 months they start slowing down like crazy. Anyway I doubt apple will make such product, it might look similar but at the end of the day it will sell it will
Be a simple and powerful product that will outsell htc and Samsung AGAIN. The graphics and speed on ios devices are good enough and at least even a 3GS gets a update to ios6 mm how many android devices got ice cream sandwich before a new one got thrown in the air again. LoL think people think.

How will Europe handle this? Don't they require a standardized plug there?

I don't know if this is a good point or not, but the front of that screen looks grey like the 3G or non retina screen. My iPhone 4S has a pitch black screen, which shows the quality. What do you guys think?

I think it's not an actual working phone but a mock-up made of available parts (as clearly stated in the article's title). The screen isn't even actually attached as it will be in the final product, it has no digitizer but is simply the front glass sitting on top of the frame with something under it to support it. That's what I and every other thinking person thinks (sorry you were left out of that group.)

I think it looks pretty nice. 16:9 screen? Yes please, FINALLY if it's true! I also carry my phone in my front pants pocket, upside down, so that my thumb is near the home button when I pull it out of my pocket. So having the headphone jack on the bottom means I can still carry it upside down with a headphone cord coming straight out.
Different dock connector? Big deal, if it really is changing, everyone is already making adapters and new components. Worst for me is I'd have to get a new cord for my Pioneer car stereo, and I'm sure they're already making that.
I'd be willing to bet almost everyone saying "If this is the new iPhone then I'm done with Apple" blah blah blah will all be one of the first in line to buy the new one. You watch and see.

I think it looks really good. I'll definitely be getting it.

Design wise it might be the iPhone 5 but things like the color and such are probably different. Since when has a "leaked" or purported iPhone picture ever looked exactly like the final product???

they should seek similar design to the iPhone 3G/3Gs's curved design. Replace the plastic band and volume controls with metal like the iphone 4's, add the improved cameras and internal hardware (cpu, storage etc..). and make it thinner than the 3G/S of course but i always thought the 3G/S's were the most comfortable to hold.
