Note to Samsung: Please stick to the basics

New "designer" phone looks like grandma's wallpaper.

Samsung

It's been awhile since we've seen a phone with a particularly garish design , though maybe that's just because we were trying to preserve the one eye we haven't poked out after viewing the others. But all good things must come to an end, as evidenced by the release of Samsung's new phone for Orange Spain designed by Vittorio & & Lucchino, a maroon number that bears a distinct resemblance to Grandma's kitchen drawer liners.

The people at Samsung should really be booked for an episode of What Not to Wear because things have a way of going horribly awry whenever it tries to create a new look for its products. At least this time they resisted the temptation to add Swarovski crystals for once. There goes the other eye.>
