The top-‐ranked phones are now dominated by the iPhone "look"
Summary • The iPhone popularized what is now the standard for high-‐end cellphone user interface: namely, a monolithic body casing dominated by a large color touchscreen that occupies all or most of the surface area and consOtutes the primary user interface, with a minimum of tradiOonal "mechanical" buPons. Some designs adopt this look but hide addiOonal buPons or keyboards in a ﬂip-‐out panel.
