So, after the recent announcement I personally don't have many positive things to think about the Galaxy S3. But forgetting everything else about the phone, I'm interested to know: does anyone out there actually think it looks okay? I just think it looks awful myself, I'm not really sure what they were thinking.

Holding off on my opinions until the US at$t variant is shown. Theirs often look the best IMO.

Ye I agree actually, I thought the blue one would look quite cool but actually it looks like a crappy £100 phone you could pick up from a second hand shop, all though the white one just looks sublime ^.^

I don't like the brushed aluminum look. Personally, the One X and Lumia 900 are both much better looking phones.

I don't like the shape and even less the back, I like my AT&T GSII compared to all the other rounded versions. If I was in the market for a phone though I would still get it.

No, I don't like it at all. Samsung makes some great phones, but they seem to lack on the visual side of things...

When you have Apple breathing down your neck, and suing you over design issues, it seems like they designed a phone that would keep Apple off their backs.

It looks like a Nexus with hardware buttons. The phone isn't ugly.
