Review: Samsung Galaxy Note 4 for AT&T
Still At A Loss.
I understand that these are handheld products and how they "feel" plays a certain part in purchases by some people. But, in the same principle, they are also mobile devices that are subject to almost unlimited elements of destruction and 95% of users tend to use a case on the phones. This inherently negates the "feel." All the excuses in the world don't change this fact.
As the author pointed out, you can bend the rear panel and not have it break. Isn't this important for durability? To me, this says millions on what punishment a device can...
Cost is the deciding factor in what is offered in the most functional options vs a better feel.
As it was with computers and why Apple almost failed in my generation, we decided that we wanted the most options possible...
Right now in the phone world, people are paying a premium for phones that are made with cheap material regardless if you think it's more durable. You also don't have a high perceived value when you pick up a plastic phone. At that point you're using the device like you would a car that gets you from point A to B - not in ...
So, you're saying that a Porche Carrera GT made mostly of hybrid plastic materials, is more premium than the steel that the Ford Fiesta has. Interesting. I also find the ride in my neighbor's Porche seems rather stiff(suspension) vs my Wife's Chevy Impala. The Porshe may offer a better high performance factor, but as you can see, the materials are indeed plastic. I think this only validates my point.
We must becareful when comparing.
For the price you pay on a flagship phone, it should include as many amenities as possible for the price. Not leaving out things just for the sake of pro...
The stiff feel of the suspension of a Porsche is by design and wanted by someone who is looking for performance over the comfort offered by an Impala.
The overall point being that Samsung has long had a reputation for cheap feeling phones, that while high end spec wise feel no better than a junky pantech phone and for the price we pay, case or not, many people like to have that feel of something high end as well.
I've had my variety of premium phones over the years and it was also a time that many of the best in class feature phones really felt worth the price. Two examples of my previous devices that had amazing bang for the buck and were very well made. The first was also a Samsung which surprisingly used a partial metal chassis that also had built-in stereo loudspeakers. It's covered here as the D807 but in the USA, it was a T-Mobile exclusive under the model number T-809.
best in class display for it's...
also enhances the appearance. But if u don't have the power under the hood, what good r looks? Why do u think Jags, Benz, Equss, Lexus & other high end vehicles have V-8's starting @ 385 HP+. My Equss has 429 standard. So not only does it have looks & quality, its got HP under the hood. Also quite a bit of premium polycarbonate components, same as Benz & Jags, which I have owned several of each. Few reviewers express objective opinions or actually get their information correct. Usually just there personal view. U don't sell million...
The second fallacy is that using cheaper materials ≠ durability. Samsung's cheap plastics crack as they age (especially the white ones), the silver paint rubs off, and the screens were historically more prone to cracking due to body flex (probably not true with the iP6+)
The side plastic frames on the Galaxy Note series was extremely prone to stress fractures around the buttons- even when used gingerly.
