"Plasticky"

by Slammer    Dec 6, 2012, 2:57 PM

While I understand the wish list for better build look and feel, I become disappointed in the overlook of the plastic material.

Rather a resin/vinyl material, it is the same material used in safety helmets. Does this make it lack durability? The polycarbonate material absorbs impact far better than stiffer material. This means it protects the cargo inside much better. Thus why they use this material. When insurance claims are made on phones, I think it is far less expensive to repair and refurbish a handset where the inner components haven't been sacrificed due to hard impact. As cars are made to absorb impact to protect the occupants. It is cheaper to total a vehicle rather than pay out very expensive health and medical insurance.

In short, a device made to be handled and risk a drop, is more relaxing to me. Yes, covers are nice. But doesn't that then defeat the purpose?

"Plasticky" materials don't bother me. In fact, I feel at ease with the design.
