Re: 'Rich Corinthian Leather'
Android has a -very- cohesive guide nowadays for things like app icon sizing, colors, etc at: http://developer.android.com/design .
Samsung, back in the days of the Galaxy SII, copied Apple pretty heavily, especially regarding icons. These icons were already pretty ugly, but as Samsung has 'evolved' them (most likely due to the desires of their legal team and not an actual designer) , they just became even more mismatched.
Icons are just the tip of the iceberg. You have things like a messaging app that's terrible (text is -always- too large), a gallery app that's terrible (can't hide albums), and quite possibly the worst calendar app I've ever used (that can mercifully be replaced by the stock Android app.)
