PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Ron Amadeo argues that the SIII is ugly because it was designed by lawyers. "So there you have it. A darn-near perfect explanation of the GSIII design. Sure, it's butt ugly, but it's also 100% (well maybe 90%) lawyer approved. An amorphous, unsymmetrical blob that doesn't come in black, with a non-permanent dock and non-square icons. There's no way Apple can add this design to their Samsung lawsuit." Sure would explain how Samsung went from the elegantly understated SII to this monstrosity of a phone. Anyone out there who actually likes the SIII's 'design'? If so, care to explain why?

I don't think the design itself is THAT bad. What's really bad are the buttons. No conforming to the new UI guidelines about on screen buttons. Not even fake ones like HTC. No, they HAD to include a legacy menu button, holding the platform back.

I can see where they are coming from, consistency and all, but still, this is bad.
