Miss the curve of the 3GS. The boxy design of the 4 doesn't sit as well in my hand. Of course this is just my opinion. But design wise I'll take the 3 curve over the square 4

I miss the back of the original iPhone. It's still pretty cool to see someone carrying one around, except that you know that thing crawls like a snail now.

A lot of people hated the iPhone 4 when it was leaked by Giz, but I loved it from day one -- so that's what I voted for.

Really, I think I'd have to say that the next iPhone design will be my favorite. Or maybe it won't be the next one, but once they allow the screen to take up more real estate on the front of the phone, I'll be happier.

I never did care too much for the curves on my 3GS, but I still enjoyed the design. The iPhone 4 fits my personal style better. I like cleanliness, and the 4 is more efficient and clean in my opinion. I love the glass feel, just wish it was easier to differentiate the front from the back.

Agreed, although I have a screen protector on the back, so it feels slightly different than the front. Also, there's that big button on one side :D

I'm really hoping they don't go back to a plastic exterior again. Even really nice phones that come out these days feel crappy and cheap if they're too plastic-y.

purely aesthetically, i like v1 the best. If a modern variation of it were done (thinner, retina, with no bezel, etc) it would be awesome.

i really don't care for the sharp edges of the iPhone 4.

V1 for sure, that thing was so sexy, if it had legs blonde hair and called me daddy I would've never let it go.

For me, it is the iPhone 4. Even though I am not a fan of the glass on the back, I believe Apple did a nice job of designing it.

The original iPhone has got to be the best so far, the only downside was the hardware and black plastic strip across the bottom.

Same here. Hard to argue with the V1 for me - especially since at the time it was so radically different to everything else - before we had four years of constant copying by every single other vendor.

My friends have the 4 I still have my 3GS holding their phones just isn't as comfortable as mine. It's very flat and sharp, not as easy to grip like the 3 series.
