Plastic isn't bad (see Lumia, Motorola, HTC) , but Samsung's plastic is. Even if you think it doesn't look terrible (it does), it's:

-Not durable (the clear coat cracks on the lighter colors and scratches easily on the darker ones)
-Not functional (Slippery and makes it difficult to hold)
-Ugly (I don't know where you feel fake stitching or mis-aligned patterns are classy, news alert, they're not.)

Numerous other manufacturers have found a better material. Motorola found wood and kevlar, HTC has aluminum and monoblock polycarbonate, Apple has aluminum.
