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?

It's not ugly

The phone itself is not ugly, it's just cheaply made, completely plastic, which unless it's the Lumia or Ones that have a nice sturdy non-flexible feel to them, just feels cheap when compared to other phones.

The ugly on this phone is the use of another of the awful pentile displays. Not everyone can see the effect, but I can, and I would never buy one because it looks awful to me. That alone makes this a no-go.
