Iphone 6 'photos' reveal sleeker, rounder device

LEAKED images, reportedly of the new iPhone  6, set for release in September, show a thinner, rounder design that is almost like the HTC One.

The images feature on French site Nowwhereelse.fr

Perhaps most notably, the phone's screen finally reaches the edges of its body, the Huffington Post reports.

The pictures match up pretty well with a leaked image found on Mac Rumors, but considering the phone hasn't even been announced yet, the best advice is to take all of this with a grain of salt.

After all, it is April Fool's Day.

A recent concept design from Sam Beckett, a British designer with a good track record of predicting what the next iPhone will look like, also forecasts a thinner iPhone 6 with a 4.7-inch screen.

But Business Insider and Barron's both reported talk of not one, but two new iPhones, one with a 4.7-inch screen and one with a 5.5-inch screen.

HTC One (M8) v iPhone 5s

HTC has released it's latest flagship handset, the HTC One (M8). But what exactly does it offer and, more importantly, how does it stack up to the competition?

In terms of size and screen quality the M8's 5-inch screen sits between the iPhone 5S (4-inches) and the Galaxy S5 (5.1-inches).

Just like the S5, the M8's display is full HD, and although on paper the iPhone 5s has a smaller resolution t's unlikely that customers would notice any difference between the quality in these devices.

The iPhone's smaller screen size does mean that it's the lightest of the bunch, weighing in at 111 grams compared to the S5's 144g and the M8's relatively portly 160 grams.

The reason the M8 weighs more though is due to its aluminium build, giving it a noticeably superior  feel to the S5's leather-mimicking plastic and putting it on a par with the iPhone 5s.

In terms of basic specs (memory, processor speed, RAM) all three devices are on a pretty even keel. The M8 is powered by a 2.3GHz quad-core processor and runs the latest version of Android, (4.4 or KitKat) and gives users the option of 16GB or 32GB of storage with 2GB of RAM powering the thing. An expansion card slot supporting microSD memory cards can also be used to add up to 128GB of additional storage.

This is all as expected really, comparing just fine to the Galaxy S5's 2.5GHz processor (with 16GB/32GB memory plus microSD) and although Apple fans may argue that the 64-bit processor on the iPhone 5S (including 16GB/32GB/64GB storage options) gives it an edge in terms of future-proof power, as with screen quality, it's unlikely that consumers will notice much of a difference.
