As a mainstream user that signed on to different wireless industry sites such as phones scoop in 2008, I had never heard anyone complaining about plastic phones until after Steve Jobs big speech of Aluminum. Even then, it has been mostly contained in tech media hubs. Having used cellphones since '88, I too, have never had a reason to complain.

Retaining my mainstream user roots, has allowed me to view the scope of outside the technical blog sites. I hear very few people claiming they want metal phones and very few are complaining about the phones they purchased regardless of plastic or metal.

In short, your view is based on personal choice and does not represent the 200 million individuals who have purchased plastic Samsung phones or countless others who have purchased plastic phones outside the Samsung field. 95% of people put cases on their phones anyway which restricts the feel and visual effects of the device that so many tech geeks fail to realize.

You like metal. A good portion of the world's population doesn't seem to be bothered by material that has been used in phones from day one and in other industries across the board.
