    I'm not a fan of the camera bumps but I highly doubt they were an afterthought. My guess is the internals required a little more room and the camera bump was the best compromise. Get a case and the bump is a non-issue, plus your phone is better protected from accidental drops.

      Am I the only one who thinks this is terrible design and terrible justification? You still end up with a fat phone just with an ugly looking case on it which will trap dust and cause worse scratches.

      You'd be surprised how little scratches a case free phone has.

        This is where my initial thought was going - obviously not so much an afterthought as bad design.

        Surely they could have compromised with a 1mm thicker case for the rest of the phone, and made it all look flush.

        You're only going to be 1 of 100000000 carrying the phone around so are you really concerned about how slim and sexy it is?
