What's wrong with plastic? Why would I need a phone made from metal? And why they are making phones so "durable" to last for 10 years if they release a new one every year which every trademark slave must buy just to stay in trend?
I have one of these your called plastic garbages from China - a Huawei. After 2 years it has a minor scratch on display and some impact marks on 2 edges from falling on concrete floor,once even from 2m height. And I'm not carrying it in foamed protective case,but just in pocket,I use it in work (I'm electrician,renovating appartments etc) - not just as a communication device,but also as flashlight or viewing unaccessible areas using camera. And the plastic garbage has survived all the abuse,so why bother making it from some "expensive" metal?
