While some may believe that the iPhone 7 is a modern day marvel of design and engineering, others loathe the rounded corners and other slippery design details. Among others who think they can do a better job at designing the iPhone is YouTuber PeripateticPandas.

“I’ve been waiting for the next iconic design since the release of the iPhone 5,” he explains. “But I’m finally done waiting.”
