Re: Sleek and stylish, but maybe too slim?

Beth, one thing to remember is that the phone started out as a bunch of pieces.  Sort of like from dust to dust.

Frankly, I wouldn't mind a phone the thickness of a credit card.  Slim is in for me.

It's amazing to me to have a device with that much computing power, and the largest component is the battery.

Sleek and stylish, but maybe too slim?
Beth Stackpole   9/28/2012 7:18:38 AM
Kind of sad seeing a thing of great design beauty laid out in pieces like that ... but very interesting all the same. I haven't seen the iPhone 5.0 yet in person, but as a user of the iPhone 4 (pre Siri), I think the larger screen would be cool. I recently saw the Samsung Galaxy phone in person and that much larger screen is appealing, but I still contend the phone is not as well designed from an aesthetic standpoint as the iPhone.

On the downside of this new redesign, I've heard a lot of people saying the sleeker footprint is almost too minimalist (feels too slim, somewhat cheap). There are also a lot of complaints about the new adapter design since it means all those extra chargers, accessories, etc. won't work with the new model (unless of course you buy an adapter for your adapter--in true Apple fashion). Despite all of this, I still want one!!
