Magnesium alloy or carbon fiber, sturdy yet flexible enough for rough ride
Metals tend to bend and plastics tend to crack
the tech nerd, 16 Jul 2017You shall obtain all the vibranium from wakanda xDYah gonna asked on T'challa for some of their vibranium to use for our phones. If that's the case we can now use our phones as weapons o_O
Unobtainium or Dilithium
vrvly, 15 Jul 2017Truly best is leather, but with todays phones made to survive glass is only option. Metal is c... moreThey crack so easily, if they slip out your hand,chances are you won't be able to use camera due to cracks on glass and get ready for a massive bill from service centre,better to stick with metal or premium grippy plastic(like one used on priv) and maybe leather too(never used it myself) ,but just don't think about ceramic, will be sooo easy to crack

Metal looks like the runaway winner in the poll. Not surprising in this LOOK AT ME/fashionista era we live in. I don't mind metal but it brings its own share of flaws. I voted for plastic/rubber because it just seems more practical but not in this Apple brainwashed (design/build quality over practicality) society we are in.
I like the design from BlackBerry too. The Bold 9000 and KeyOne are both materials used I like. I forget people mostly buy phones like jewelry. Not as tools. They're the tools for being brainwashed by these companies for buying the same products over and over.
Metal or plastic
Truly best is leather, but with todays phones made to survive glass is only option. Metal is cold and slippery, plastic got cheap feeling, easy to damage/get dirty. Gorillas wins for me.
Mixture that would make phones look good and durable these days even cgeap phones can give you a good in hand feel
Firstly i hate shiny phones all they do is slip off places and finger prints galore. Metal has that cold feel and seems to have an effect on signal strength. I never had a problem with premium plastic phones. They tend to be lighter no metal to affect signal and although you can get shiny plastic anything matte looks awesome, The DBrand skins in matte look great. If the rubberised plastic is used that tends to be matte has brilliant grip and can take a few knocks without any marks at all so yeah that would be the sensible way to go. And for anyone that says they dont look as good, id rather have a rubberised body than a cracked back glass one.
I'd like Wood too much, same for the leather, even maybe brushed AL/metal, Ceramic sounds cool too.
Smart people think rationally and chose plastic.
Metal is cool but only suitable for non-overheating devices. Else, you'll feel the heat. I don't care much about wireless charging but glass phones looks and feel nice in hand despite their vulnerability
Oems should use a combination of rubber and metal. Metal frame and rubber back. Rubber is durable, Grippy, and allows for wireless charging.
i dont know any one material is the be all , i have a bunch of phones including the wizz bang sculpted glass and metal ones , and they are very nice to look at , however my perfect device would be a combo of alloy chassis , glass screen and plastic back(preferably removeable ) ,
out of all my phones , my dear old note 4 which has had a beating and still works perfectly would be my pick ,
it also isnt prone to finger prints , and the bloody thing is not slippery like a fish like nearly every modern glass phone on the market .
Give me a note 4 with an 835 in it and they can stick all the pretty wizz bang phones up their jumper :) .
I love metal but love wireless charging even more so I choose glass.Hopefully wireless charging for metal phones comes soon,Qualcomm is working on it.
abdebeste, 15 Jul 2017What about polycarbonate found on the old Nokia Lumias. I remember my Lumia 1020 being tough e... moreLOL same with the Lumia 520 I bought cheap. Dropped it once, little dent in the corner. But metal is just as durable while looking and feeling more premium, even though it isn't as colorful (colored aluminum shells look hideous, I mean blue or green aluminum who wants that?)
As long as it allow wireless charging I don't care, but not cheap plastic like some recent Sony phones.
