Give me function over form any day. I don't care what I look like when I'm on the phone. I don't take a glance at something and count it out just because it "looks" this way or that way. I'm more analytical, I actually base things on fact.
Rectangle screen, Rectangle phone. Makes perfect sense. It's a phone, not a sports car.
I don't need pretty little curves or shiny little buttons. Therein lies the problem, Some people like one thing, some people like another. Manufacturing something to please both of them is difficult.
People who base everything on looks would probably produce spherical drinking glasses because they "look" better despite the fact that you could never set them down, can't stack them, are harder to drink out of, and are harder to hold.
Give me a phone that works, and is durable. That's all I ask. Somehow, NONE of the phone companies can do that. They produce a crap phone, and then instead of fixing the flaws of the previous version and adding features, they simply create a new physical form with different flaws.
Name me one phone that doesn't have any of the following:
+ Fragile Screen
+ Crappy OS
+ Crappy Slider
+ Crappy Keyboard
+ Crappy Battery
+ Stupid charging port location (like on the side or top - seriously?)
