quote: You can look at Samsung's high end GS3, GS4 and Note2's for good examples of how NOT to do plastic. Samsung's plastic is cheap and slippery.
quote: So why doesn't anyone else use metal and glass, other than HTC? Because glass cracks and metal scratches more easily than plastic. Very few iPhones are used without a case, hiding the metal-and-glass, so aesthetics are moot. The cases provide added protection against shock, something metal and glass does NOT do.
quote: You must be clumsy or just another Samsung shill.
quote: I just find it funny how tech junkies hate on Apple's design choices.
quote: The truth is, some Android users, including the fanboi army drafted and financed by Samsung themselves, started most of this.
quote: But this kind of tech-elitism is not what the Android crowd should be all about.
quote: I happen to agree with him, because he's right. Plastic simply has better overall properties, from a materials standpoint, than Aluminum for use in mobile products. It can be molded, meaning much tighter tolerances than can be made for Aluminum. It expands and contracts less. It fares better at absorbing impacts. The list goes on.
quote: Man you are such an asshole. Do you know that? I was, obviously, making generic statements for the sake of a discussion. I wasn't writing a goddamned research project. But thanks for all this worthless info, fuking nerd.
quote: LOL... That is a great tagline for Samsung phones.
quote: No other high end phones are as poorly built
quote: Samsung is catching up to Apple in its "terdery"
quote: Look at the crap they have been pulling lately...
quote: Yes, I dont mean they are falling apart and poor quality from a "needs repair" standpoint, I mean build quality as far as feeling solid and well built...
quote: I guess Samsung is just supposed to sit there and let Apple win billion dollar lawsuit after lawsuit, and endure products bans, just so they can "look good" to people like you and me? Apple started this crap, Samsung is just trying to play the game they were forced into.
quote: $20 for an adapter isn't expensive, but it is in relation to the $3.50 adapters you can buy elsewhere.
quote: If you look at even Apple's products, they start offering options only when sales start dipping,
quote: The smartphone's been done. It's the next thing that will again bring big margins.
