We need colours!

Android needs colours. I’m looking at the HTC 8X and Lumia 920 and I am so jealous.

This is a simple design differentiator that would immediately catch consumer attention but most makers have yet to realise this. Samsung just slaps colours onto their handset… no thought, no aesthetics, just paint pink and white onto their galaxies and call it a day. Moto is usually just black and white too. The new LG Nexus? Yeap, standard issue black and white too.

Seems like everyone is intent on just aping Apple :/

In my book, only Sony has been doing it well. HTC is much improved too, the 1X series was black/white but at least it was well-designed. Other than that, there’s nothing much else. Maybe its a US thing? You guys can’t help but follow the standard iPhone black and white?

I know some boring business folk have a jihad/crusade/inquisition against colours. That’s fine… just release colours alongside the usual ones! Look at the Lumia series, colours everywhere but a black one to go with the stiff suits.

I don’t know. I love Android but this year, I’ll probably get the Lumia.

Unless Google surprises me with a yellow Nexus or something.
