RE: build quality

I am perfectly happy with the plastic back of my N10. Made by samsung. So why do they have to go and make the rest of their products feel so cheap and awful. Being metal or "precious"(?) has nothing to do with it. Take a look at say the gs3/4. One of the major gripes people have with it, is not that it is plastic, but that the plastic feels so cheap, given that they are buying a top of the range model.
Samsungs build quality has always been a point of discussion, why are you acting as if i'm being unreasonable in mentioning this?

I don't think you're being unreasonable but I will disagree with the build quality. I think that's fine but my problem has always been specs. Up until recently, that has been severely lacking. I will say these new tablets are impressive spec wise and it seems the feel will be improved like retro said. Guess we'll see how it goes. Personally, that new Transformer Duet is way more intriguing.

Well it's always been a debate, some are fine with it, other do not like it in the slightest.
We will indeed have to wait and see, but i did a little of of googling and here was one hands on opinion of the quality.
"the NotePRO’s plastic build results in the tablet featuring an unwanted amount of flex, creaking under moderate amounts of pressure. It is, however, more robust than the extremely flimsy 12.2-inch Samsung Galaxy TabPRO."
will just have to wait for a broader set of opinions, and see for myself once they're in the shops.
