    No. That's why I chose not to buy it.

    Ok. Never mind then. I missed that you sent this from your EVO (although why you're hanging out in an S3 forum is beyond me)...

    S3 design is about the best of all high end smart phones. It has curves, some metal design and it is thin as hell!

    We I'm one who also thinks that the design is bland and ugly. If were going to list grapes with the design, here are mine:

    - Looks like a round blob. I prefer more angled, rectangular looks. I think the One X and iPhone 4/4S looks gorgeous.

    - The home button is a poor design and far too low. The Galaxy S/S2 had better home buttons.

    - Cheap feeling, plastic body. Doesn't feel like a premium phone.

    - Faux metal band across the edge. If you're not going to use metal, don't try to pass it off as metal.

    Those are my gripes with it. I think the S2 was a far better design a d would have preferred something closer to that. I'd like Samsung to move away from their cheap feeling love of plastic. I know it's a polycarbonate material, but it feels cheap compared to the Lumia 900/One X.

    I guess what I'm trying to say is say it doesn't look and feel like the highest-end phone on the market.

    Yep. That band that runs around the perimeter of the phone is plastic with a metallic paint on it.

    Yeah I'm not a fan of that either.

    I really don't get the whole look of the 'pebble blue' phone. The inspiration was all nature and whatnot, but then they have a brushed metal look and a metallic looking band on the phone? wat?

    i thought theyd put a "metal" band around it to cure the "samsung feel" a bit but id much rather the materials were more honest. maybe il do same as the dude in "modified s3 looks waaaay better" post and sand off the metal finish. when i saw the pics i assumed it was a dark coloured metal underneath but its obv jst black plastic!

    This phones too round.. This phones too square... This phones too heavy... This phones too plastic. You can't please everyone.

    I'll admit I've picked the phone up upside down a few times but that's because it's a symmetrical shape so it's expected... But to actually press the ear piece thinking it's the home button is pretty bad. I also like the brushed metal look of the trim and rather it be plastic over actual metal... But hey, everyone has their own personal tastes and what some may like,.. others may not,,, and that's one of the great things about android, that we have choices.

    Guess everyone's taste is different. I personally love the design. What you may find bland, I find simple, sleek, and sexy. Love the gentle curvature of the phone.

    How much more can be done with cell phones as far as styling before they start to look strange?

    Personally I prefer the simple design, minimalist style is always easiest on the eyes!

    I agree with an earlier post. It depends on what device history that you have had. In my case, I came from RIM. You can't more vanilla than that. The GS3 design is much more pleasing to hold and the design cues are great in terms of the placement of capacitive buttons, homescreen button and power/volume rocker. They all function well in a more comprehensive perspective.

    Exactly. That's one of the reasons i didn't choose any of the HTC phones. To much going on with there designs. Sleek n simple is my S3!!

    Less of a fan of aircraft aluminum/glass unibody design. The GS3 rocks.

    IMO it's not necessarily bland, but lazy.
    It has 2 Gigs of RAM, how is that lazy

    I can't disagree with the OP any more, love this phone (first Android phone I have had since the OG Droid,) That I is actually going to me content with for up to a year. And I have had most of them.

    Where did you buy yours from? I bought mine from Spain and it was 600 / 700$. 940$ seems like a ripoff.
