It was a brilliant phone for many reasons, with XDA Developers the place to g to find out how to install entirely different operating systems on it.
Gorilla glass front with a lip on top and bottom frame to protect when falling on screen like xperias, titanium frame like essential with htc 10 style chamfer, ballistic fibre curved back panel.
Someone build that.
DOCTOR FATE, 23 Jul 2017nothing beats metal, oh did you know that metal can be quite shinny and lustrous?Xperia Z3+ frame directly shot into my mind. And I think Galaxy S8 also has a shiny metal frame.
It looks like that Metal is the most important and norm for phones these days. But...what if they a phone that is "IRON"???!!!
Anonymous, 23 Jul 2017Do a poll on how much of ram for smartphone is enough. Enough: 1 or 2 GB
But more is always better cause Systems and Apps need more and more RAM over time. iOS 10 needs more RAM than iOS 6. Android Nougat needs more RAM than Android Ice Cream Sandwich. Youtube 12.27 needs more RAM than Youtube 9.2. It's the same as processing power, just not that important.
And I'm no fanboy, I'm iPhone user.
My opinion is: just put in like 8GB of RAM into high end phones and then you don't have to care about spec sheet wars, future updates etc. RAM also isn't the most expensive good.
I prefer my phone made from unibody metal, but not aluminum alloy, I want it made from high-grade stainless steel or high-grade Titanium alloy with sapphire display or transparent aluminum glass as display

I'm fine with high quality plastic as long as the battery is removable.. Metal, Glass etc have taken the removable battery away and it sucks....

But it also has a removable battery, so it's back is the last thing you'd expect to break and even if it does, you'll just replace it for a few dollars.
Mantra, 23 Jul 2017Good quality plastic. Is far better than any other Metal/Aluminium... My Note 4 is unbreakable... moreI guess you forgot how small and thick the phone is and the fact that nowdays phone a giant slab og glass on the screen instead of plastic
Frankly I prefer glass sandwich. Maybe because I have one (Xperia Z), or maybe because it looks the best out of all. All I have to say is that if you are a careful person and take care of your things, any type of material can be used.
I've had this phone since 2013 and it's still intact. While a friend of mine broke his S6 in less than a week.
Maybe metal is the way to go but it looks bad. It gets scratched and bent if you drop it. Also it seems that wireless charging is not compatible with metal phones.
Good quality plastic. Is far better than any other Metal/Aluminium... My Note 4 is unbreakable.
And it seems people who voted "metal" forgot about the indestructible nokia 3310 (made of plastic).
Metal dents, scrapes, and overheats. It also blocks the passage of the radio and why it can't have wireless charging.
Best material comes from the KEYOne.
No mention about the ceramic option which got 2nd place but the Samsung n Xperia glass got mentioned eventhough got third?????
Metal is the best. But it depends what quality metal. There are metal phones that bend easy but also plastic phones with strong body. Glass look cool but fragile. Every phone need screen protector and case to last longer.
flower, 23 Jul 2017people don't need practical phones anymore. they want to catch envy sights we don't have good... moreYea they are so lost in their false relities...It's 2017 already and smartphones are just a normal part of our lives, nobody cares how your phone looks or what it's made of...especially when you're going to put it in a case anyway. Total idiocracy.
people don't need practical phones anymore. they want to catch envy sights

HTC built superb metal phones for 4 yours straight, and that sinked them.
the u11 liquid glass is proven sell so far. People really want something shiny, not metal actually!
