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.
