We are not just talking about any metal. Aluminum.

Aluminum has a molecular base that can make it unstable as opposed to MPM. It is also highly intolerable of environmental elements that are corrosive to it. The first corrosive element that comes to mind is salt. What does the body expel especially through hands? Holding an aluminum phone with bare hands, will start the chemical reaction.Tarnishing, pitting and discoloration.

The other factor aluminum has is its ability for heat and cold transfer. Imagine leaving your aluminum phone on a dash in the sun. You can say hello to overheat and exploding batteries.

So now the life long argument starts. "I'll just put a case on it." Sort of defeats the purpose now of owning a phone with premium material or "feel."
