I used to think the same thing about the build until I got one. When I use it, I'm not thinking about the image of it all, I tend to be focused on the use of it. With the cost to replace device if it is damages being on the high side, I bought a shock absorbing case to even further protect it. I'm sure Samsung could have done many things to make it look more expensive, but then it would be able to be a mass market phone, much like like Lamborghinis are very good cars but not realistic for most people. I would rather have the dollar go where more bang is noticeable to me, such as processing power, s pen stylus, battery life, et al.

I had a coworker comment it looked cheap and wouldn't survive a drop, so I asked him to do a 4 foot drop test of his iPhone 5 onto a concrete floor, and when he declined I replied that his phone didn't look like it could survive a drop test either.
