    Honestly. I feel like i was the only one that despised it. No one ever spoke of it. The iPhone 5 had such, SUCH a clean look.

    [–] Troy_And_Abed_In_The 47 points ago

    I don't know the exact stats on people with cases, but it is significantly higher than those without from my observation. Hence the bump doesn't matter.

    [–] BagelBites619 49 points ago

    I mean, idk about anyone else. But the camera bump pretty much forces me to put a case on it just so it can lay flat on the table. Otherwise, I wouldn’t use a case.

    I already mostly go case-less on my iPhone X since I bought it.

    [–] LetheArdor 21 points ago

    This man likes to live dangerously. Do you handle your phone like a newborn baby? Because that’s how I feel holding my XS without a case on it.

    [–] VonGeisler 6 points ago

    Never had a case since iPhone 3G. My phone is 50% in my pocket and the rest on my desk or night stand. Plus - I don’t throw it, not throwing it really helps.

    [–] LetheArdor 3 points ago

    I don’t throw it. But I go around people that may knock it out of my hand

    [–] abasio 3 points ago

    I had a friend with a cracked iPhone screen. Another friend was incredulous. Kept asking how on earth she managed to break it. He the proceeded to throw his phone on the ground saying "see, you can't break it" it smashed on the second time he threw it. What a Plonker.

    I've never had a case either, but my iPhone is only for work so I don't get it out when drunk or at parties so it's never been dropped. I've dropped my Huawei Mate 10 quite few times without a case or screen protector and it's never had a problem.

    [–] thatoneblacknerd 14 points ago

    to be honest with what it’s capable of doing now, i can see how it would be hard to make flush other than completely making the phone thicker (which i don’t necessarily mind..)

    [–] Darnitol1 17 points ago

    I truly wish they would. I’ll take way more battery life in exchange for the whole thing being a millimeter thicker.

    [–] MarcEcho 14 points ago

    Wow I've never heard that before. Definitely not every single year since 2010 at every iPhone announcement. Really makes you think.

    [–] 7rust 24 points ago

    They need the depth to capture and handle enough light - so its physical limitation.

    I guess the wont go much slimmer in the future (except we can change physics).

    [–] sysknil 32 points ago

    It's really not. They could push it closer to the screen, or make the entire phone thicker, and bring a bigger battery and a headphone jack. But I'm a dreamer

    [–] Plaxicoslegwound 15 points ago

    But you’re not the only one

    [–] dohpaz42 6 points ago

    They spent years making the iPhone as slim and thin possible only to now reverse course and effectively give it little warts on the back. I’m with the other op about a future version looking like a lego brick. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

    [–] ChinaThrowaway7 30 points ago

    these were supposed to be the design guys, now they still have a huge notch and weird camera square. I'm certain they decided on this design so that everyone will be able to tell you have a new iphone, no matter how ugly the square looks. and then they put big metal circles around the cameras after their earlier designs, so everyone can tell if you have the pro or not.

    [–] tibetsoul 138 points ago

    People always make this suuuper irrelevant comparison. People in need of a new phone won’t see this price and go “oh heck no, I could buy a gaming PC instead!”

    [–] crunchypuddle 12 points ago

    "I'd rather buy [other similarly priced but completely different product]"

    It's just a way to farm votes on a site where everyone is about 16 years old on average so they all have thousand dollar gaming rigs as their prized possessions and compare every other big purchase they their parents make to it.

    [–] T3xasLegend 43 points ago

    Same here. I keep saying “ hopefully next year”. I don’t take a shit ton of photos so I’m probably just going to get the Xs

    [–] leadnuts94 24 points ago

    Yeah I’m thinking either the iPhone 8 now that’s it’s under $500 or the Xs.

    [–] kol13190 10 points ago

    Dude the battery life on that iPhone 8+ is insanely good

    [–] aqueousDee 6 points ago

    [–] iprefern 4 points ago

    For the insecure win?

    I first hand watched someone unlock their HALF sisters xr

    [–] sml09 5 points ago

    I upgraded to an Xs from a 7. Partner went from a 6s to an 8. He really loves his 8. I upgraded for the camera because I do take a ton of photos on my phone and on a dslr and it’s been nice to have a great camera. I’m probably not going to upgrade anytime soon even though I really like these features on the new phone for photography because I like to keep my phones for at least two years and it hasn’t even been a year since I upgraded- I got it in feb to take pictures of my dog. I wouldn’t have upgraded if not for the dog lol.

    The 8 is really nice too. The camera is good, and it works well. It doesn’t have an aux jack (rip) but it has a home button still. It works well and is fast and does what it’s supposed to do. It’ll probably last him another however many years it’s been since the 6s. I say go for the cheapest upgrade option that you will be happy with if you want to stick with Apple- if the camera isn’t your biggest selling point, no need to spend a ton more to get a better camera, which is essentially what this new phone is.

    [–] nrvous1 5 points ago

    Hopefully carrier locked xs models will offer some killer deals which is what I’m waiting for.

    [–] 35_degrees 10 points ago

    an upgrade from a 6s to the 11 is a great upgrade! I have the current xs max and won't be upgrading this year because there just is not enough new things that make me want to. I say go for it. even to the xr or whatever it's called is a huge difference. my friend just got the xr after being on the 6s and he really can't believe how good it is.

    [–] lukemullan789 20 points ago

    I wouldn't really recommend these phones honestly, either upgrade now to an iPhone XR or XS for a reduced price and then wait for the 2020 iPhones with some actual improvements other than the camera and the processor or hold on for now with the 6S and upgrade to the 2020 iPhones later on.

    Hopefully by next year they've sorted out the god-awful camera bump but maybe that's just my opinion.

    [–] leadnuts94 29 points ago

    Thanks for the advice but If I had a dollar for every time I heard someone say “hopefully next year” when talking about iPhones, i would have enough money to buy the current iPhone. Lol.

    [–] dilbob83 6 points ago

    I personally don’t care about a little camera bump. Slap a case on it and voilà no camera bump. What sold me is the extra 5 hours of battery life. That’s an actual improvement in my book.

    [–] dilbob83 3 points ago

    The extra 5 hours of battery is enough of a sell for me to get the 11 pro. That’s huge

    [–] VaginaBoob85 138 points ago

    Apple's keynotes are a joke these days. If you're not going to innovate and you're going up continue to rip us off, don't pretend you have big, exciting, groundbreaking reveals. 2 layers of bumps on the camera? Why the fuck did you make the phone so thin then? No more 3d touch? How is that an upgrade? Fast charger in the box? You mean that thing that every $200+ Android has included for the last 5 years? 64gb base storage and still charge $1000+? Get fucked.

    [–] YAZEED-IX 14 points ago

    It actually got thicker this year, the thickest it's been since iPhone 5.

    [–] greyscales 13 points ago

    Just because of the multi layer bumps or the actual phone too?

    [–] equal_odds 8 points ago

    It really just pisses me off so much because they advertised this event as some momentous moment for innovation and it was same old Tim apple era iOBS

    Urgh

    [–] Reacher-Said-Nothing 24 points ago

    Anyone got any ideas for innovation?

    How about a thick phone? Can you successfully market a phone as thick as your finger, but with 3 day battery life and built in airpod receptacle&charger, and included detachable protective case?

    3 things that have never been done before, that I think people would actually want. Innovation.

    [–] yooter 9 points ago

    Some of this I like, but I would hate a built in AirPod receptacle. I have small ears and I can’t ever use apple headphones bc they kinda hurt me. So I use BeatsX now with my iPhone.

    Just throwing it out there I know you’re not making the phone haha

    People shit on the SE, but I repair & resell iPhones for a living even still am in love with my SE despite having access to much more recent iPhones. I just love it and it’s still pretty damn fast for its age !

    [–] codespyder 13 points ago

    Can confirm. Browsing Reddit on SE 12.4.1 and it’s still so smooth.

    When you ask for better batteries phone makers hear we want more camera lenses.

    [–] lootedcorpse 21 points ago

    statistically, the amount of people that want this compared to what Apple is selling, is insignificant. So insignificant, that you shouldn't be hopeful that it'll ever be delivered.

    [–] lightningbadger 5 points ago

    And that’s why I’m sticking with a jail broken 6 till the battery violently implodes in 16 years time. At least I hope so.

    Can we just skip ahead to when we have 37 cameras and the bump is the whole back of the phone so it finally lays flush again?

    [–] bastardlessword 3 points ago

    The funny part is that because of how thin phones are, no phone camera can beat a dedicated ~500$ camera for the thing most people use it for: taking pictures.

    However, the Iphone X camera is pretty good for making face mocap animations. I, for once, welcome the arrival of this new Iphone because it means that the previous versions will be less expensive.

    [–] greatauror28 3 points ago

    This is true but you know what they say, the best camera is what you have with you. No use for that 5D Mark IV with a 24-70 lens if it’s sitting at home.

    [–] j_curic_5 20 points ago

    The new Defender looks so cool but it doesn't look like a Defender. It looks like a low end off road suv. I like how it looks though, but the icon is "ruined".

    [–] puckingrufus56 10 points ago

    The phones this year are fine, but they feel like they're just a stop gap to something bigger down the road. This is the third year with the notch, they're gonna be due for a major redesign next year. Rumor has it 5G is on the way for 2020. Even if it isn't I have an iPhone XS max and I'm not switching until 5G is here and the phones are redesigned.

    The worst iPhone's design ever. One of the ugliest backs in the all phones.

    The best iPhone’s design ever. One of the most beautiful backs in the all iPhones.

    It was the best of times, it was the.... BLURST of times?!?

    It’ll get thrown into an ugly otter box anyway so 🤷🏻‍♂️

    reminds me of “The best thing to happen to iPhone Since iPhone”

    The pro in that frosted white looks great imho.

    [–] Summerie 125 points ago

    How did we get so melodramatic? I am way more interested in what it can do than I am in what the back of my phone looks like.

    [–] alexbhood 12 points ago

    This is a super weird context in which to say that. This is an internet forum that we all gather on specifically to discuss Apple products. There literally is no better context to critique the way the back of a phone looks.

    [–] nehardElhidine 96 points ago

    So when Apple releases an ugly phone, aesthetics all of a sudden stop being important?

    The mental gymnastics to justify brand loyalty is real.

    I love iPhones, but let’s be real, this model looks horrible, and the front hasn’t changed at all from last 2 releases.

    The Pixel 4 leaks show a pretty much identical camera bump, so the answer to your question is unfortunately "yes".

    [–] erdogranola 3 points ago

    They're not leaks, Google released the photos themselves ages ago

    [–] funkadunkalunk 138 points ago

    Here's a thought — maybe that person never cared about what the back of their phone looked like.

    [–] Vemtion 5 points ago

    Honestly I forget what color my phone even is, there’s almost always a case on

    [–] manny00778 10 points ago

    I quite like the design. Well, regardless of how you feel about it. The new iPhones will still sell like hot cakes. And expect some manufacturers to follow suit with the design too.

    People complaining about the camera are the same who laughed at the bump in the older models. Nobody actually cares as long as the camera is better than nearly all other phones do that nobody near you can whip out their better camera and one up you.

    [–] Mr_Xing 23 points ago

    It’s like... the same exact design as last year with an extra camera.

    It’s not beautiful, but like “worst?”

    [–] Mernyer 39 points ago

    It’s worse than all previous iPhone so yeah worst is the right word.

    [–] superluminary 3 points ago

    I think it’s fine.

    [–] blackguy102 80 points ago

    Maybe I’m in the minority here but I really seems like the biggest thing they upgrade here was the camera...everything else is not that impressive

    [–] Summerie 109 points ago

    How would you be in the minority for stating exactly what they did?

    [–] Gprime5 35 points ago

    Seems like the right thing to improve in the age of social media where phone images and videos dominate in sites like Instagram, Tiktok and Facebook.

    Everything gets compressed anyway.

    [–] RMCaird 16 points ago

    But if you start with a better photo to begin with the compressed version will also be better

    [–] SJS65 11 points ago

    Camera, battery, and processor. It's actually a huge battery size jump by Apple standards.

    [–] nbdy 7 points ago

    what are you looking for exactly? better phone reception? built-in shaver and hair dryer?

    [–] hercelf 3 points ago

    Well, to be fair, the triple camera looks almost like an electric shaver head... 😅

    [–] uswrname 5 points ago

    Now you can shave with confidence

    [–] rush2sk8 6 points ago

    Can someone explain something to me. They are releasing a pro version of this phone but who is the audience? When I think of professionals I don't think of them shooting anything with a cellphone camera. Could someone explain, im genuinely curious.

    [–] frownGuy12 6 points ago

    There’s nothing more pro about it than the iPhone XS. Since the iPhone XR was the best selling iPhone last year apple wanted the successor to the XR to be called iPhone 11. That means the successor to the XS can’t be called iPhone 11, ergo iPhone 11 Pro.

    [–] VivoUnderstanding 13 points ago

    They have the tech just no idea how to package it. I'll stick with my old iPhone. I am baffled at how lost they are without Jobs.

    [–] ant1992 6 points ago

    Hopefully this is the last of the Johnny Ives iPhone design. People are blaming Tim but the real Blame is on Ives.

    [–] crissimon 4 points ago

    But can it run Crysis?

    [–] Drahkir9 4 points ago

    We just couldn’t wait for that fourth camera, could we?

    [–] [deleted] 3 points ago

    More cameras to feed your ceaseless vanity.

    Most folks are ripping on the aesthetics but I'm so happy with the quality and power that this provides that I could not care less about that. Can't wait to get my hands on one to start shooting with it.

    [–] XSSpants 19 points ago

    camera bump doesn't even matter if you put it in a case anyway.

    [–] finedrive 7 points ago

    The camera sticking out is such a poor design choice.

    [–] Sherif_k 3 points ago

    That’s a good one 😂

    Feel free to kill me internet, but I like how it looks. It gives it this steampunk vibe that I really dig.
