Yeah lord knows why. A 5 inch screen @ WVGA that's gonna look pixelated Design is not Samsung's forte at all. Now Nokia well all their new phones look good and look different from each other

I agree. If we look at the PC monitor market we can see that 27" monitors with a 1920 x 1080 resolution are selling well compared to the more expensive 2560 x 1440 models. The price is of course the most important factor here

Sammy would not have sold so many millions of phones the last couple of years if people didn't like their design As for the Nokia it seems to me that the N9, Lumia 800, Lumia 900 and the Lumia 920 doesn't look different from each other

People go for Samsung performance & software rather than design imo. Nokia previous generation of Lumia looked similar but not the latest bunch. Samsung have been looking the same or just bland and plain designs for ages

I like Samsung's designs, very slim, simple and clean, the GS3's design grew on me.
The Galaxy Grand is for those who want a huge screen at a budget, although i must say the screen res is awful, should have been qHD (540x960) not WVGA.

WRT Nokia, i have to agree with rikken, Nokia's WP handsets all look like a N9 in a variety of sizes, the 820,710 and 610 are the only ones that truly stick out for me.

If you think this is big then take a look at the 6.1-inch Huawei Ascend Mate
