Hands-On with the Samsung Galaxy S III
Did Samsung buy up all the worlds cheap plastic?
Plastic =/= cheap or poorly made.
Yes there are cheap plastics, just as there are high quality engineered plastics. Not all plastics are created equal.
Metal dings and dents, glass shatters when dropped, but you just can't beat the light-weight resilience of a good plastic shell. I've dropped my GSI from over 6 feet clattering on to pavement with narry a scuff or scratch to be found. That's the kind of quality I want in a phone, and I hope that Samsung keep making their phones this way forever (at least the Galaxy S line...maybe they could do a separate line of metal phones for people that prefer the heft and feel of anodized aluminum or something...)
i was playing with my note. this girl said "is that a galaxy? i just dropped my iphone and need to talk to att for replacement". haha
The only real difference is that it's not unibody. Unibody is nice, but non-unibody means you can access the battery on the Galaxy S III, unlike the One X.
The One X also has a matte texture on the back, which I do prefer over the glossy glaze on the Galaxy S III. But that's the extent of the real differences.
If you don't mind the glossy glaze on the back, the Galaxy S III does actually have a very quality feel to it. The curved glass on the front feels very nice, actually.
