Plastic is good as shock absorption, it's also elastic, which is why it takes considerably less pressure to crack a Samsung phone screen from stress.

Plastic isn't bad, but that doesn't mean all plastics are created equal. Samsung's plastic, which suffers from stress cracks, surface abrasion, and an all-around crumminess (see Phonescoop's take on look/feel) is far inferior to that used by Motorola (which uses a kevlar weave in some cases) , HTC (which uses a higher strength polycarbonate) , and even Nokia (whose phones are chunky but finished nicely.)
