Umm, seriously? This is the best you could do? Forget the obvious issue (i.e. design a phone with acceptable battery life), but this bandaid no doubt has Steve turning in his grave. If Ive designed this then he might want to head over to Art Center for a few refresher courses. Seriously – this is hideous and was enough to even make me start browsing Microsoft’s site looking at Surfaces. I’m also unimpressed with the iPadPro and pencil/keyboard (I’ll write that up separately), and my artist wife nixed the 6/6s as “looks like a cheap android phone.”
It is one thing to bias form over function. This one throws both out the window and goes for a bandaid solution. The question is whether or not this is an anomaly or a new direction.
