"I don't see what the big deal is," said Lauren Baker, a stout Android supporter. "I don't think that the iPhone is that hot. I think it's gotten kind of fat, actually."

The iPhone 4S, which was revealed yesterday at Cupertino, has the exact same dimensions as the last iPhone, but critics insist that the new smart phone has put on weight.

"I don't care what they say," said Graciela Mendez, who recently purchased the Droid Bionic. "The new iPhone is looking big and bulky. Plus, it's such a bitch."

iPhone detractors maintain that their feelings about the iPhone have nothing to do with their own insecurities.

"I'm perfectly happy with my Droid's body," said Karina Ruddowski, owner of the Galaxy S II. "I mean, I guess I can see why someone might be into an iPhone if you're into that small, sleek frame. That's just not my thing. I think my Galaxy's frame is more natural."
