Steel and glass may look good, however telephones made out of plastic had been by no means actually unhealthy within the first place.

As any follower of the smartphone trade is aware of, we’re dwelling in an age the place OEMs are striving for all metallic and glass designs in favor of cheaper supplies, equivalent to plastic. It is a pattern we have seen from Samsung, LG, Google, and lots others, and whereas glass and metallic may subjectively be extra engaging than plastic, are these supplies actually any higher in day-to-day use?

One person on our boards shared his ideas on how he wished Google had launched an up to date model of the Nexus 5 in favor of the Pixel 2 that we at present have, and this sparked a dialogue of metallic/glass vs. plastic when used on telephones.

This is what some individuals needed to say:

The black Nexus 5 tender contact plastic was improbable, we have to carry this again. So a lot better than aluminium.

I hate that we’ve got to have breakable telephones now as a result of individuals assume plastic is affordable. Certain, it may be cheap–like the ugly shiny plastic that Samsung used to use–but it could additionally look very good and be very sensible.

I simply do not get why individuals equate low cost with plastic? A number of the most lovely and even excessive finish merchandise on the planet are made out of plastic.


Plastic appears to be the favorable materials for most individuals, however there are nonetheless some customers that just like the transfer to metallic/glass.

Meh the Nexus 5 appeared and felt low cost, I am pleased with present crop of flagships which have extra fashionable and a lot better construct than few years again.

Usually in engineering plastic is practical, not notably fashionable or excessive finish. Whether or not it is headphones, automobiles, telephones, or anything, plastic is a really pedestrian (albeit obligatory) materials alternative and nobody actually needs it on a $650+ telephone


Now, we move the query on to you – Do you favor telephones made out of plastic or metallic/glass?
