Phil Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing, speaks on stage during an introduction of the new iPhone 5.

The iPhone 5 — the sixth generation of Apple's popular smartphone — marks yet another major redesign for the iPhone line. But is the elongated device really that appealing? What do you think?

Pictured above — behind Phil Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing — are the last few iPhone models. The original iPhone had a shiny metallic back, the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS looked virtually identical to each other, the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S brought us an elegant square design, and then there's the iPhone 5.

As you can see by the image below, the iPhone 5 looks like the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S ... but thinner and longer. It's as if someone stretched the device. The iPhone 5 is made from aluminum and glass. It's 20 percent lighter and 18 percent thinner than the iPhone 4S.
