    I had enough plastic, I want aluminium. So if Samsung wraps S IV in plastic, then HTC will get my money this year. As much as I like Samsung, I feel I should get more than a squeaky plastic when I pay 700 euros.

      Well dude world is full of retarded people nowadays, that’s why I had to login and agree to your comment.
      It’s really time for Samsung to move to some non-garbage material, unlike plastic. Otherwise Note 2 is last Samsung undoubtedly, and I’m not threatening them, just saying what I’ll do.

      After the whole faulty hardware problem in the S3 and the way Samsung refused to fix (in warranty) my phone WITH the faulty hardware just because I had had the phone rooted I’m afraid I really don’t care what the S4 is made of. As it is, I’m not due to change my phone till next year anyway (I upgraded a year early last year to get the S3 but I won’t be doing that this year to get the S4). My current thinking is that I will probably get a Nexus phone when I next upgrade (and hope that it’s not a Samsung made phone!)

        Jokes on you, the latest nexus phone is Asus which has horrible QA on their devices (check out the transformer line tablets). I would never buy an Asus device again if i wasnt sure my local shop could warrenty it for me.

        I agree with you tho, Samsung has to seriously step up their game, they used to be one of the best, now im not so sure…

      when we talk about the plastic material which have some elasticity when side drop it jumps which means plastic absorb some drop force and for this reason the board and screen could survive

      my brother through his samsung touch + qwerty slider phone from bridge to concrete parking no screen damage and body occur when he check his mobile.
      This means when we develop the technology in which the plastic body could fully bounced on drop like the tennis ball then there is a success of mobile technology

    I don’t care about plastic used on the back of my phone. I ALWAYS use protection case so I don’t even see the back.
    I think build quality is very important as well as hardware and software.
    I had the BlackBerry Curve 9360 and I was extremely surprised to see that the back was made of plastic so I looked at the back of some other Blackberry model and found plastic. NOBODY is complainig about plastic on the back of Blackberry, that’s crazy, I never ever heard anybody complaining about that.
    I am not criticising anybody cause everybody is free to think the way he wants but it does not bother me to have plastic on the back.
    I had the Note I, now I have the Note II, I won’t buy the SIV because I’m waiting for the Note III. I Hope it will have the Exynos Octa, AMOLED and awesome software.

    I personally don’t mind the plastic but the material it is built of doesn’t automatically transfer into good or bad build quality. In the end, the quality and design of a phone make you want to take it and use it. I’ve been testing the Nexus 4 for a while and while the screen was not even worth comparing to the SIII’s the quality it is made of (even though out of plastic and glass too) is way superior. I absolutely hate the back cover creaking when pushing the home button on my SGS3 for instance.

    But phone design also matters software-wise. Just look at the notification bar. This is – for me – the epitome of halfhearted design work. The toggles are in Samsung’s green (like the battery icon and so on), the bar for adjusting screen brightness is in Android vanilla colours (blue) and the checkbox for switching to Auto adjustment is in green again. This is a mixtures of design philosophies and not very continuous.

    there’s something wrong here, if u have aluminium there is no over heating problem. and is the display calibrated?? because lcd has deeper blacks which could lead to hope for amoled. but i dont see of this happening because of it being so light

    Water and dust resistant would be a major selling point.

    Samsung Galaxy S4 = Snapdragon 600
    ZTE Grand Memo = Snapdragon 800

    Please Samsung, more respect! It’s a flagship device!!!

    Learn from HTC, Aluminium, not plastic.

    You have to use premium materials and the best hardware.

    I think the arguments for plastic are no longer valid today. Apple or HTC proves it with their iPhone and HTC One. Weight can be quite correct (users do not feel differences between 138g and 150g …). Then Apple and HTC proves that having a beautiful aluminum design with good signal reception system is totally possible.

    Since the Galaxy S3, I do not buy Samsung. I went to HTC. I would have at samsung when he fired the plastic! For why the wave are entitled to a better finish?

    I feel that build with Plastic will be of greater advantage. My daughter might have thrown down my phone at least 20 times and I might have dropped at least 10 times due to mishandling. I didn’t see any crack on the body of phone & can’t feel any problem in display.

    Samsung please continue with Plastic. I like it.
