The evolution of the smartphone

We know that everyone's views on smartphone design varies and can be very polarized. Some swear by the simplicity and build of an iPhone, others love the clean lines on the HTC One - and well, we all know what the deal with Samsung is!

But you have to consider not only where we are now with smartphone design but where we've come from - and where design is headed in the future.

I just spent the last hour trying to compile the major flagship Apple, HTC, Samsung and Google phones of the last couple of years. It's amazing to see the evolution of design from when proper smartphones first appeared on the scene in 2007 to now.

The way I see it is that people shouldn't get to worked up about "Oh! this just looks like the last one, Meh!" or "ZOMG that lookz futeristik likes :D". All the manufacturers have done it from over the years - both iterative and ground breaking.

Take a look for yourselves!

Seeing this what do you dear Vergers think phones will look like 6 years from now?
