Apple designs no longer that good?

Yeah, besides some other recent criticisms, I’m not thinking that way.Yes the Lumia 800/N9 are brilliant little pieces, but I feel that Apple hasn’t said it’s last word.
I’m not going to complain just because one product (SmartCover, or how it’s named) failed.

Other thoughts?

To be honest only designers will notice the skeuomorphism, so we are the only people it bugs. The average user wont think twice about it, it just means a new user too the app will subconsciously feel that bit more comfortable.

To me it seems like a bit of a cop-out in terms of the design, but at the same time I fully understand that it works, so kinda respect it for that.
