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?

Its looks do matter, if you can have a good functioning phone that looks good, why settle for a good functioning phone that looks bad? Needless to say, I disagree with the video :-)

Can people seriously tell the difference between all four of them and an iPhone if they had their logos rubbed out and you were looking across the aisle of a bus?

Design is bollocks especially if they all look the friggin' same from three metres away. It doesn't matter.

Seriously, gadget geeks needs to examine their lives. Write your own obituary and think really hard about whether you would really like to be described as a "consumerist who has good design sense about a mobile phone".

Sure, I can but who in their right mind makes so much noise about such minor differences. Seriously, anyone considering the S3 a monstrosity of ugliness need to get their head checked. And get a life.

"consumerist who has good design sense about a mobile phone"


I think "good" is questionable.
