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 get it

And again, I don't get it. Why is this a monstrosity?
I haven't used it so I can't say anything about the functionality but it looks perfectly fine. Sounds a lot like "it doesn't look like an iPhone, ergo it is ugly" mentality. Or maybe "Darn, it's almost deadline and I don't have an article yet".
