      not sure about the tear drop shape but definitely liking the 3.7 in screen and the home button as a gesture area will be interesting to see in the end what we get

      Why would they enlarge the screen by 1/5 of an inch? It wouldn't be a noticeable difference, and developers would have to rewrite their apps for it... imagine having to write apps for non-Retina displays, current Retina displays, the iPad, and a 3.7 inch display.

      Can't say I like the shape. I personally would stick to the iPhone 4's shape/design. The beauty that you can stand it on its sides is esp. handy when taking steady photos/videos.

      when are we going to see 3D screen??? The iphone 5 is already outdated. Can we see the plan for iPhone 7? :)I don't even think about buying the iPhone 5. LG Optimus 3D just an example how far behind is apple from Android based phones.I'm done with apple for good, changing for a way better phone.

      I hate it. I wouldn't mind seeing a redesigned iPhone 5 but not if this is how it looks. It's ugly. I want my iPhone to look like an actual iPhone, not an iPod touch. I don't like the teardrop design, and I agree with drumrobot about changing the screen size. Why make things more difficult for app developers?

      The article said it would be the same resolution as the current retina display, so no rewriting required.

      The article says that it would hold the same resolution as the current iPhone 4. That means it's technically the same format as the current display, just a bit larger physically. I don't think the developers would have to redesign their apps just yet.

      I think this design is just another persons idea of what may happen, but I don't see Apple fitting all their hardware in a phone that thin. Not just yet. The next phone should have the new processor and battery, plus the two cameras, possibly a better camera on the rear. Chances are the next iPhone will be the same body as the iPhone 4.

      Interesting, how apple will adapt the battery on tear drop shape, because of the battery should a straight line of edge. I do not think they will reduce the capacity of battery to make some special shape. Because new A5 will use more power when use the graphic intensive apps.Anyway, I agree with they make thinner than before even they reduce thickness of glass or exchange with thinner back plate, so many rumors are making too tired ha ha

      I Like the home button as it is. as a button. bigger screen is nice. If they did that I doubt they would put a better resolution on it. Possible though.

      Doesn't matter how cool it looks if it isn't a 4G phone I'm sticking with my iPhone 4 until they come out with one. Apple is getting ready to get left in the dust if they don't come out with a 4G iPhone soon.

      And again one more time, The article said it would be the same resolution as the current retina display, so no rewriting required.the design is good, the panel should be in the middle

      You know the problem here is even if apple designed a phone shaped like a turd if the put an apple logo on it and called an IPhone 5 people would buy it. Cause we live in a status market and everyone wants to look hip, regardless of consequence. Sad but none the less true

      Although this is just a rumor and not true yet. But if this was to be the next generation model, I think I'm going to ditch the next generation because I hate that tear drop design and looks F*cking Ugly.I'll stick to my iphone 4. Personally the design of the iphone 4 is way much better than this.

      What a disgusting design! iPhour design much, much nicer. Defo will not upgrade no matter what the specs if it looks like this!

      Also I personally don't like the edge to edge screen at all. It is also ugly and it would be a bad move on apple if they do this.

      in real world edge to edge screen would be very nice but its difficult to be done.

      I think that is simply work of art! I have had all the iPhones ever were, and the 3G/3GS smooth shape was no doubt the best. If it simply were with metal backplate, it would have been perfect. iPhone 4 with the jagged edges is not sliding in and out of the pocket like 3, not to mention the other "issues". In the overall design concept of Apple, iPhone 4 is not in line with the rest and I hope they will bring it back with something like pictured above.

      thats a very very bad design....looks bad, i hate thats edge design even in ipad its hard to hold in the ipad . i rather had the iphone 4 design its top of the line, they need to to upgrade the speed and the memory of the iphone 4 the design is great. one thing more they need to make the iphone 5 unbreakable rather than change the design....goodbye apple need to look for a better phone and design...
