    It is still plastic... I like the phone but the lack of quality in buildings materials are notable.

    Not a fanboy, I love Andriod but even with Samsung they have to make an effort to make better phones, the iPhone is NOT the best choice for some people but it looks even like a piece of jewelry in the details.
  4. Everybody has different tastes. It depends on what features are important to you. Going with either iOS or Android won't hurt. Heck, if you want something totally different, go with Windows phone.

    As long as you're satisfied in the end with whatever purchase you made, you're a winner!

    I like this smaller screen.. I wish they retain the quadcore...

    because this phone targeted for entry-level or mid-level unlike his big brother, that's why you'll see lack of build quality and lower specs for reducing production cost..

    Uhg. Why does it have to be friggin white? What's wrong with black? Not everybody wants an ugly white phone. I don't even care for "pebble blue" but I'd get over it. To me, white just doesn't look good. I don't know why...I can't explain it. Every time I see a white phone I just want to punch a baby :p
  8. I agree in this aspect. I personally own the Samsung Galaxy SIII, love its features and all. But it does feel cheap because of the plastic design. I would love to see Samsung use aluminum or other polished metals for more protection and better feel.

    Nevertheless, a GREAT phone.
