Waiting for iPhone 5. Forget “Antennagate”, its problems are exaggerated anyway.

I like my iPhone 4 functionality but hate its industrial design. An angle of 0.3 degrees slides the phone off of most surfaces (arm-rests, desks), as a result this phone is prone to dropping. Its symmetric design also does not allow the phone’s position to be recognized without looking at it, dangerous in the car, dark environments or other precarious situations and the source of many fumbles. The asymmetric iPhone 3 with a curved back and flat front was much better.

But it can’t beat Retina.
