    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,

    "Apple had to make extra space in the slim phone to fit the components in... buy a case and make your phone fatter to hide the lump"

    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?
