    I like the design of my Samsung Galaxy S III and its bigger screen but admit that the iPhone 5 design does look nicer.

    The Samsung Galaxy S3 is a really smart-looking SmartPhone, and I like mine a lot. ;)
    Probably more of a pocket media centre than a mobile phone, though.

    The HTC One is a very nice looking phone. I'd not own it but it is very attractive (the UI not so much though). I like the iPhone 5 as well. I like how both are much more subtle in design than some of the flashy, plasticy, gimmicky phones that are around.

    The new HTC looks amazing! I'll be in the market for a new phone in a few months and that one looks like a very strong contender.

    Here's to hoping the SG4 won't look as crappy as the SG3 though.

    i loved my S3 back then. but its plastic is amazingly simple and cheap to me.

    even Nexus 4 body and material is better looking to me..also the feel when u hold it. iphone 5 itself is a nice touch the design but still a bit boring.

    never hold HTC phones since the HD2. probably not bad.

    im currently happy with Nexus 4 design and body as a businessman.

    Yes, I am in no way critiquing the quality of Samsung phones, I know they're great. It's just that the design of them does nothing for me. But then I also feel the same about a lot of the stuff Samsung makes, including TV's and monitors. I just don't like the "soft" lines they often use, I think. All a matter of personal preference, of course.

    I think Apple, but that wasn't why I bought one.

    I like the design of my HTC 8X, the glass has curved edges all the way around the edge of the phone and the grill, it's lighter than an iPhone 5 and the polycarbonate case is a touch and a half.

    nokia ftw!

    htc makes them too curvy and the easy-to-hold way... I prefer the sharp and rare edges of say the nokia x7 that would make a great lumia flagship but the back should be flat

    I like Sony's design but design is one thing, ROM support and community support is another.

    I personally don't care about design if it's not open for modding.

    I still like my Apple 4S love the glass with the brushed metal frame. While the screen is a bit small the phone overall is the right size.

    Apple, definitely. I know this is about taste. But Apple makes his smartphones from aluminium, Samsung from plastic. :D

    HTC get my vote, love the one x nicest phone out there in my opinion. Say Samsung as well and Nokia, but not apple all their phones are to similar, I like something different. :)

    But they all look the same, right from iphone 3 to iphone 5. Why do they not consider changing the look of their devices?

    It's like a BMW M3 2005 to 2013 having the SAME body only difference is the engine/interior...
