I am so sick and tired of people complaining about electronics (and just things in general) being made out of “cheap” plastic. Everybody needs to take a step back and think about it for 5 seconds, before eating up all the crap Apple and HTC spew out about aluminium.
Aluminium is considered “premium” because effective marketing told you it was. An hours research (or even less) would uncover that aluminium is one of the cheapest materials a company can buy, and it is anything but premium; nor is it suitable for electronic devices.
Extensive R&D by some of the highest R&D spending companies in the world have come to the conclusion that plastic is a better (or the best) option for electronic devices. The quicker the industry moves away from aluminium, the better it will be for all of us.
TL;DR Plastic > Aluminium. It is more expensive, stronger, more versatile, more robust, doesn’t block cell signals, and is of higher quality. People (especially reviewers and fanboys) need to stop listening to extensive marketing and advertisement coming from companies who have the most to gain by misleading them. #gonzoblogger
