Legal Five US carriers, nearly identical devices, millions and millions of pre-orders, virtually simultaneous launch - and that's just the US. The Galaxy SIII might be hideous, Samsung is still doing something right here. No surprise, then, that Apple has, once again, decided to compete in the court room instead of on the shelves: they're asking for a US import ban on the SIII [FOSS Patents link].

I don't get how SIII is hideous when it looks almost exactly like Galaxy Nexus which was praised for its original design.

It's the white that's fugly (imho). The Grey/Pebble Blue ones look alright. The limited white Nexus is fugly too, as are white iPhones. Heck, every modern handset I've seen with the exception of the N9 has been fugly in white.

I won't buy a phone if it doesn't come in white (or red, but they don't exist).

It's just Thom's lack of taste showing.

The Galaxy Nexus is also ugly in my book.

Then it has to be nice, since you dislike E-Types ;)
