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?

- is nearly all screen, no wasted space for buttons
- minimizes the non-screen part, therefore is fairly rectangular
- all edges are slightly curved, no hard edges like on the Iphone 4 or the N9
- is shock- and waterproof, no need for fugly bumpers


Conclusion: both the Iphone and the SIII are ways off perfect, but the SIII is closer because it wastes way less space compared to the screen size

Best possible phone at the moment: N9 with a even bigger screen (otherwise same size) and rounded edges at the four corners

Aren't you talking about the Galaxy Nexus or an evolution of it?
