for some reason, this comment makes no sense to me.
Well owning a iPad has made my iPhone just serve it's first purpose, and not both. So IMO. I am happy :) I try not to speak for everybody...Choice is awesome!

I do not know about the 3.5 mm headphone port at the bottom of the phone. I have it on the touch and hate it there, it is always in the way when using docks etc. I rather prefer the placement on the current iPhone.

Why would you need to use the headphone port when your iPod or iPhone is docked? The only time I can think you would need it is if it's docked for charging and you need to listen to music with headphones and in that case, most docks have a headphone port. Either way that's a very rare occurrence.

You are correct, my listening is exclusively through headphones. And most of the port outs in docks are line level out so that you can hook it to a stereo not a headphone out.

I am sure others would not mind it as much, or can work with it (and I guess I will too, if it ends up there). I was just sharing my opinion on its current placement. I am sure someone else could provide their counterpoint as to why they believe the bottom would be best.

Anyone think they might have centered the front-facing camera to facilitate a new "3D" gesture-based UI?

I'm okay with a bigger screen now. Rumors say Steve had a lot to do with this design. Slap the word iPhone and steve and you sold me a phone.

So perhaps a gesture in front of the lens, like the sideways "hang loose" might initiate a phone call....
Or waving hand left to right may switch apps, similar to 4 finger swipe on iPad?
Interesting.

This means that a large portion of the apps in the App Store will work on day one, but that many others, especially those that use custom graphics, will have to be pillar-boxed or letter-boxed depending on orientation. I especially like Will Hains’ suggestion that the white iPhone could even receive a white pillar-box, although I’m not sure this sounds very ‘apple-ey’.
I could only see them doing this if they could get rid of the seam between the white faceplate and the edge of the screen AND they could get the color of white to match that of the face of the phone. Considering that the latter is impossible (unless they move to a completely reflective screen technology), the white pillarboxing probably wouldn't happen.

Just to be clear, I was quoting the article liked in that same post.
No way I'm clever enough to consider all the variables a new screen size would encompass... :D

More than rumors I love the analysts that always say the next iPhone will top previous sales. Thank you Captain Obvious. This is typically the only true statement that half those analysts get right among their predictions.
Well I hope it tops previous sales. It's going to be the newest iPhone! It better be more sales! :D

4" screen, 8mp camera above, better front cam, lte, better battery, new design, white again, 64gb or above, improved IOS.

That would be amazing!
