It doesn't look great but this hyperbole needs to stop.
Exactly. It's all getting a bit silly now. We get it, it's out of line with what Apple usually brings.
I think Apple invites it though. They have these insane glamour-shot-type videos of all of their products, talking about their meticulous attention to detail. When that's what you hang your hat on, it begs for people to make a much larger deal about small flaws.
That and some people just like to overreact for the sake of attention.
This incessant bleating just makes me second guess this industry - yes, I know for every obnoxious loudmouth in our field there are a dozen shaking their heads, not interested in buying into it.
I've had my gripes about Apple in the past (and yes, would choose a Droid over an iPhone any day for a bunch of my own reasons), but it has mainly been because they were sticking to the same approach for so long. They're trying some new things like letting us see a version of iOS before it's completely baked, and making different versions of a phone; and now people are losing their shit about them releasing something different.
This is the first version of iOS that I have ever taken an active interest in, and being uninterested in the previous versions meant that I just didn't pay them much attention - way less less effort than being an ass. Can we please as an industry grow up a little, and stop whinging because a company are trying to make a thing? I'm not going to buy one, but my wife totally will.
the entire case is a design flaw. boom roasted.
It's like a Boston Market up in here with all this roastin' going on.
It'll be worse in real life, without the FCC info photoshopped out.
The back of your iPhone will be obscured by your hand most of the time, so who cares.

Glad I'm not the only one who noticed this!
