Nobody needs Metal

by Tofuchong    Feb 24, 2014, 8:02 PM

Plastic is a win over metal in several fields, just as metal is a win over plastic in several fields.

For somebody like me, who lives in a very, very, VERY cold and very very humid environment, I don't want a metal phone. I live somewhere where the humidity is often condensing - which would spell death for a phone with a metal body.

MOST metal phones don't have user replaceable options, like SD card, Battery - this is MOST, not all. People think of metal, and strength - just get a good case for your phone, you don't need a phone with a metal body. NFC / WIFI could also be possible issues with full-body metal phones.
