quote: The S4 is certainly a bad one.
quote: The fake leather grain plastic on the new notes is even worse. It just looked and felt cheesy.
quote: but real wood paneling looked great.
quote: That doesn't change the fact the standard back panel is hideous.
quote: Weather leather or wood, if you are not going to do it right, don't bother doing it at all.

quote: Whenever I hear people rant against the polycarbonates on the Galaxy S phones, I'm convinced they are mentally retarded shills. It would be a shame if they went with an all metal unibody and there was no longer a way to quickly and easily peel off that back cover and swap in a new battery. I hate the false perception going against the Galaxy build materials and all the mouth breathers who mindlessly feed into it.

quote: Like I, and others, have pointed out, you take this WAY too personally.
quote: You have so much emotionally invested in your phone choice
quote: I am gonna go out on a limb and say you are single because living with someone who has to always be right and belittles anyone who thinks differently would be hell. I doubt many women would tolerate that attitude for long.
quote: Ok, terrible was too strong a word. It doesn't feel solid. While the phone isn't really flimsy, it gives that impression when you hold it.
quote: Adding a bit to thickness and weight would not be a problem.
