Why is metal perceived as a 'better and more premium' material for devices?
>Bad for antenna design
>Dents and bends if not properly designed
>Often slippery (so you'll put a case or skin over it, so you won't feel the 'premium' material anyway)
Maybe lose a few hundreds pounds fatass
Because luxury goods are often metallic. Metal goods usually feel durable, even if they aren't in some respects. Cheap shit is often plastic. Plastic goods often feel cheap, unless they're made with dual-injection molding, which they usually aren't. Aside from that, the tactile aspects of both materials need to be taken into consideration. Some people prefer the feeling of metals to plastic.
There are ways around these issues, but they usually require manufacturers to be creative. For example, leather goods are often seen as luxury items. So the LG G4 ships with a leather backplate that, admittedly, feels pretty nice even though it's incredibly thin bonded faux leather.
>They even make bulletproot/bombproof suits lined with ceramic plates.
Those plates are supposed to crack and break.
What you want from a bulletproof vest is to absorb all (or almost all) the kinetic energy of the bullet while deforming as little as possible (so as to stop it from penetrating you). Ceramic materials are used because they have very high toughness and very small deformation to fracture.
because it comes from worn-torn genocidal nations. these countries are always the source of the most premium materials. not because of the actual mineral profiles, but because primitive/conflict regions add a sense of romance to the product.
It's just frosted tempered glass.
I actually really like the brown leather G4 - shot looks nice as fuck.
The only problem is that they didn't do as good a job with the removable cover as Samsung did on the note 4. The note 4 cover is incredible as far as its thinness and ease of removal/reattachment is concerned - it comes right off and snaps right on really and smoothly and never seems to wear down or get loose over time.
Such a small amount of carbon fiber would never break with a fall. You'd have to take a hammer to it, and even still it would take quite a bit to shatter.
