Ugly

The phone is ugly. While it may have some advantages over the iPhone, it is definitely not hip. Good luck Motorola.

At last?

Blimey, after 10 years Motorola bring out a good phone, surely shome mishtake!

Hmmm

It looks like a different team designed the front and the back and they couldn't agree on the size and the colour.

Nice specification, but as Brian says, ugly.

Hmm...

I probably have no sense of taste but I kind of like it actually. Probably ludicrously expensive outside of contracts though.

Looks good

I actually think it looks quite good. Almost a bit retro. It looks a bit like one of the old scientific calculators I had at school.

Ugly icons

If they look at the iPhone, he's removed the text under the icon, and evened up the icons using a rectangle format. Making for a neater more pleasing display.

I have to say Android needs a stylist, it's butt ugly.

Function over form

What are you lot techs or fashion girls? I'd take functions over form as long as it fits in my pocket, I want things that work not just look pretty. Fix the bugs not the icons!

@Function over form

"What are you lot techs or fashion girls? I'd take functions over form as long as it fits in my pocket, I want things that work not just look pretty. Fix the bugs not the icons!"

I think they should fix both and I think style and function go hand in hand.

This is a finger operated device, see the talk bubble? If I press outside the bubble but inside it's bounding rectangle, am I in or out of the icon? The design makes it ambiguous.

You see how styling it as a button, you also make it clear to the user what is inside and what is outside of the icon.

A good stylist is what Google needs for that device. I've seen it several times and thought 'yuck'.

Hmmm, you is ugly!

I agree that it looks ugly, but I can't wait to end my iPhone contract and try a bit of Andriod. Maybe not this phone, but in 6-8 months something better is bound to come along. Things have come a long way since WM5, but I'm not sure it has always been in the right direction. iPhone may be the current sweetheart, but it'll never last.
