iPhone vs Android design

Interesting points, though I disagree that the iPhone design was “designed by experts with superb taste” or that “the designers of Android, and companies like HTC, which modify that operating system in different ways, don’t have the same skills.” It’s weird because I made the same change and, while it may have something to do with the fact that I switched from iPhone 3GS to HTC one instead of the author’s iPhone 4->HTC switch, I immediately noticed a huge upgrade in the visual aesthetics, UI design, and interaction design. Sure, older Android phones are ugly as sin. This is majorly impacted by the fact that Android provides bland/hideous layouts for its developers whereas Apple’s defaults are very visually appealing. Android got the message though and has created more consistent (and most importantly, beautiful) themes for its phones.
