I'll agree with most of the comments here saying that this phone is ugly...
However... After looking the actual reviews from different sites, the phone does not look bad after all..
The main reason for the design is to provide efficient handling of the phone despite its very large screen... There you have it....
WELL IF YOU THINK SIII IS VERY UGLY, OTHER PHONES WOULD BE VERY VERY UGLY BY THEN...
muhammadhaniff, 04 May 2012i dissapointed this smartphone because it can use 12 mp and kill the sony xperia.yes i think you've disappointed it.
the reasons most phones are built from plastic these days is because:
1. its cheapper to repair
2. its lighter than metal
3. it more water resistant than metel

I think in terms of look HTC ONE X is better than S3. And also it's features are not that much amazing as we wanted in most rumored SMARTPHONE.
The Mali400 was pointless in the low-res SII, perfect for qHD (960 x 540), and too weak for 1280 x720. Again with the all.plastic body?
Seems like LG already has killed this phone with it's newest optimus with 2GB RAM and better screen, plus it's built of proper metall as a top of the range phone should be. And bigger battery too.
But, I'm sure this will sell much due to brand loyalty and mass marketing. The SII was also crap compared to competition, but sold like no one else.
Wow this phone is actually amazing. Better battery, pixals don't matter lol but they sure put a lot of features to camera. S2 camera rocks btw so this is just upgraded features. So far it better than htc one x and all the phones out lol I don't mind the plastic on the phone coz The S2 feels really good in my hands. So over all This phone is fantastic un everyway. Don't think the next iphone will beat this but it will match it in size and processor so just an upgraded Iphone, unless they come up without something genious rather than another upgrade :-)
Some people don't have a good taste and came here to say this is ugly. I think this is a very COOL phone, with amazing specs! The One X sales will going down, I am sure about this Samsung haters!!! In my opinion this looks cooler than the One X. I like round edge devices. It's not a brick. :P
I am sure Samsung will sell many S3 phones.
yack, what a cheap design for a phone with that kind of benchmark and expectation, i do not know what is samsung upto, till date there are only couple of phones where the design are worth out of so many models they keep on launching every week.... very poor show samsung
i will agree that it is an ugly phone but theses days its not about how it looks. its about the hardware inside and the software it runs on. come on ppl, quad core with ICS!!! how can you complain at that?
S3 haters, I respect your opinions, but if this phone doesn't meet your qualifications/expectations/standards, then don't buy it, you are not being forced to do so. Beauty is always in the eye of the beholder. Not just because you think its ugly, everybody should think so too. I am not a techy person and I believe that comparisons are very useful but which phone is better or which phone is the best will always depend on the user.
A Pathetic looking phone.. How can Samsung luanch a phone looking so ugly when everyone had high expectations,..would definatley change my brand loyalty now... COmpared to the specification the phone did not stand upto the hype it created.. a major diasapointment by Samsung
