    Hey, about aestheticism of Apple products,
    do you still think iPhone has best design?
    personally i have Sony Xperia Z and before owned iPhones and when i put them together on the table, i dont think iPhone has better design overall
    maybe i am going to shock some people there are some beautiful smartphones from Android like Xperia, HTC One...
    what do you think guys?

    No, I still think the iPhone 4 an 4S were the most beautiful so far. In second place, I'd put the first gen iPhone.

    Indeed, 4/4S were beautiful and even if you compare it to 5/5S
    i think Apple should not substitute 4/4S Glass material for 5/5S Alu
    Yes Alu is a better material overall, lighter, sturdier... but Glass gives better appearance

    I think the HTC One is the best designed phone I've seen and held. I've yet to see the Z1 (don't have here here in the states :( )

    iPhone 5S is the best design on the market right now but I would put the HTC One in a very close second. I don't really like the design of the Xperia Z. I don't like how it feels in hand.

    In my opinion, iPhone 5s is the best designed smart phone in 2013.

    well i can tell you why Xperia Z/Z1 caught my eyes
    it simply reminds me an iPhone but for Android.
    pure monolith, simple and designed. it has its premium effect. 5/5S doesnt
    Apple never hide it, they based on Sony's know how.

    ----------

    thats ergonomic thing but we r talking about design

    well XZ is 5'', its huge phone while you can put easily 5S in your hands

    It's rather boring, but buyers love boring, just look at the sales. Four years later and they still sell. That's brand power. J. Ive has it made, just keep recycling the same design and everyone gushes over his design skill. He gets big bucks, rock star treatment & a staff to delegate to. Smart man.

    We'll I'm certain people would go for the 5S, as would I, but I don't think we should say that because [Removed by HTC One and S4 lovers]

    iPhone 5S most beautiful smartphone?

    HTC One and the 5s are the only ones with any kind of "premium build". The rest could just have easily been drawn and thought up by children!

    In fact, bar those two all the rest look near on identical... How is that a good stand out and unique design?!

    The 5s is far from boring, it's evolved, look at Porsche 911's for example, why change a formulae that works so well?!

    It is, if you take it out of a case and somehow managed to get one without any marks on it.

    How exactly is it evolved?

    I think it's the brand name. Switch the design of the iPhone with the Xperia, for example, and I bet the iPhone still sells as well just because it is an Apple iPhone.

    The HTC one in black is hard to beat TBH. Iphone 5/5s is just a shade below.

    Evolution = A natural progression.

    It still looks like an iPhone, works like an iPhone and has the build quality of an iPhone, but with improvements and nothing drastically different or OTT either time.

    Yes, but is the iPhone's evolution being unnecessarily slowed by Apple? Evolving and boring aren't mutually exclusive.

    I think iPhone 5/5s are the most beautiful phones so far.
    iPhone 4/4s are pretty close and then came, very very close, HTC ONE, the most beautiful android phone.

    Sony, huawei and xiaomi are very distant ....

    5s?

    Try the iPhone 5! It has the ONE color the 5s lacks. Black. My favorite phone.

    I waited an extra year for Sprint to get the iPhone 5, just so I could avoid the 4 and 4s.

    I find this absolutely shocking. You have shocked me with this bold, brash, irreverent assertion.
    Shocked.

    I like the HTC One, but that might be because it looks (to me) like the love child of an iPhone and a MacBook Pro.

    Add a poll and lets see which one gets the most votes. I like the design of 5S but HTC one looks good no doubt.
