Apple makes the iPhone thinner and lighter at the expense of a better camera and third antenna = sacrificing function for form.
Apple makes the iPhone heavier and thicker in order to include a better camera and third antenna = also sacrificing function for... function?
Clearly, this is the wrong way to approach the issue. Form is function. Weight and size are functions of an industrial product. Like it or not. You can prioritize different aspects of design but you can't have your cake and eat it, too.
