Well there are currently rumours that the iPhone 5s may be different colors this time around.

Is it just me or does the new iPod Touch look nice, not the colors just the way the edges are curved and the back is all the same material and looks better than the iPhone 5, which is different at the top and bottom.

Could they make the iPhone 5s look the same as the back of a ipod touch?

I think if they do it'll be a pretty nifty phone again, I just hate the back of the iphone 5

Why are iPhones so heavy compared to other phones? I was amazed when I felt my friends Samsung Galaxy 2 and another mates SG3 (months ago), I now own a HTC 8X since a couple of weeks and ditto, waaay lighter than my iPhone 4!

Why?

A combination of higher quality materials and I'd suspect Apple thinking heavier items give a more premium feel, which is often true.

Agreed. The one thing I don't like about the iPhone 5 is how light it is. It just doesn't give the same quality impression as the 4 and 4S.
Even the Lumia 920 is at the sweetspot for weight, imo.

now that i think about it, the one thing i like about the rock case i use on my phone, Samsung Galaxy S III (Amazon) It adds just enough weight to make the phone not feel like a flimsy piece of plastic (which it is not it is actually a rather sturdy phone)

I highly doubt it personally. I think if there was a 5s it would just be faster, much like the ipad 3rd to 4th gen change. I think the major changes with sizes and colors would be on an iPhone 6.

When I saw the commercial for the new iPod, for a moment I thought it was a Lumia commercial.

What other phones weigh less than the iPhone 5?

The iPhone 4 is two and a half years old at this point. The current iPhone on the other hand weighs less than all of the other phones you've mentioned, including the brand new HTC 8X. Just saying... :)

The Article came from BGR with this lovely piece from a Market Analyst "iPhone 5S’ to reportedly launch by June with multiple color options and two different display sizes"

A few things from this. He's looking at stocks to watch for his investors and yet mentions that Apple has been in decline. Sounds more like a rallying call to me to say "we don't suck. it's all Apple's fault".

Yer I'm hoping the new colors rumour is true, I want to upgrade my iPhone 4, but I don't like the 5, because ofthe chipping at the sides and thw two tone back, which looks minging.

If it can just look like a slightly thicker iPod touch, then sold
