No, I don’t have an iPhone 6 yet; I won’t have one until Friday. But I do have a case for my iPhone 6. Here’s the iPhone 5s, in my current case, which is about the same thickness, next to the iPhone 6 case: I like the larger size. I have large hands, and it’s […]
“Apple has an unpleasant bulge it’s hiding. The latest iPhone 6 has slimmed down to just 6.9mm of metal in what Apple describes as a “streamlined profile,” but it has picked up one element that isn’t particularly streamlined: an ugly camera bulge at the rear. You wouldn’t necessarily spot it if you were browsing Apple’s website though. While some images display the bulge clearly, there’s a number where it has simply vanished from sight.”
I’ve noticed this in many of the Apple photos, which are actually 3D-rendered graphics. I also notice that on the iPhone 6 case that I bought – which I got from Amazon yesterday – there is a slightly raised border around the hole for the lens and flash. This suggests that the case is thinner than the height of the camera. So If I put the phone in this case flat on a table, it won’t really be flat, but raised a tiny bit by the camera.
