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?

Uninspiring design

From pictures, I agree this is not the best piece of design out there, but this is a phone not a fashion accessory, most of the times it's inside a pocket.
Apple and Nokia have done much better design wise, but let's compare something else.
Samsung has a huge display with more resolution and is lighter; compared to Lumia 900 it uses less volume. Even so, it has inside a considerable bigger battery. Ratio between front and screen area is very good, unlike iPhone with its face plate filled with "sweet nothing".

In the end I suppose lawyers have done a good job ;)
