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 think the design will grow on you. it's just like with new generations of car designs, at first you think "that's weird" and then you get used to it. actually i thought the iphone was way too big and slablike when it came out, whereas now it's considered a classic.

anyway, this article is pure speculation and i hardly think it proves that the design is by lawyers as opposed to an honest attempt by samsung to try something a little different...

Actually I think the rounded design is made in order to slide easier into the pocket (since it's dimensions). And it reminds me of Nexus S.
