Poll: Which is your favorite Samsung Galaxy S design?

Poll: Which is your favorite Samsung Galaxy S design?
Believe it or not, it's been almost exactly 5 years since the release of the first Samsung Galaxy S line smartphone — the Galaxy S. Announced on March 23, the S packed some pretty impressive hardware, like a "giant" 4-inch Super AMOLED display and a Hummingbird processor clocked at 1GHz.

Of course, the Galaxy S was just the beginning of what we now recognize as Samsung's most popular smartphone line. About a year later, the even bigger, 4.3-inch Galaxy S II arrived (and was then modified and released in more flavors than any other phone we know of), then the Galaxy S III, which was really a game changer for Samsung and the industry, and we rated it appropriately. The S III also brought the first non-rectangular design for the series, and the Galaxy S4, Galaxy S5, and Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, all have continued in its footsteps, refining the styling and trying to get the details just right.

All these iterations had their appeal at the time, but we definitely feel that some were more impressive than others. If we have learned anything reviewing and talking about tech, however, it's that tastes differ. So irrespective of which model we thought looked coolest for its time, it's entirely plausible for a legion of people to disagree wholeheartedly, and that's okay. At least as long as you tell us which one design was your favorite by voting below, that is!

and apple, sony, htc, lg all look different?

Don't even. It's not that easy to change the front. That woud mean extra hard work and the form of the phone also depends on the software. iPhones have kept one button because of iOS.

Sony and HTC have changed a lot since 2009. They kept most of their design since 2013, true, but not as far back as Samsung.

In what way...? Because at a distance of up to 100FT, I can still tell them apart.

S6 edge is the most beautiful Galaxy ever! It is probably the most beautiful phone in 2015 as well.

the S6 edge will probably win the design award no doubt.

I think they did something wrong with S5 design.... Galaxy S looks much better than S5 o.0

My brother had black S5 - it's not the best looking device but it's better than S4 which looks kinda cheap with glossy plastic. If you play safe with black/white option you wouldn't disappointed but if you choose those shocking blue instead i think you'd be sorry later. I find those dimple back pattern is more present on blue.

AT&T's version of the S1 (captivate) was handsome with metal battery cover and all

The S5 with its flashy chrome sides is the ugliest in my opinion. I HATE that chrome.

S4 gets the cake. It has the best screen-to-body ratio and looks the best from front. It can benefit from a change of materials though.

If they released it with a leather like back initially, it would have been received much better.

S4 Black Edition. I changed back cover with this one (faux leather) and it is looking amazing. And still working like a charm. Now I'm waiting for new to market S6 Edge on Sapphire Green with 64GB to be only 100 Euro cheaper.
