It's harder to work with aluminium therefore making it more expensive to make for phones, especially in a uni-body design. Since when does being more expensive mean it looks and feels more premium anyway? It's purely subjective.

Plastic price is around 3.5 $ / Kg
Aluminum price is around 2 $ / Kg
So aluminum looks feels and is more cheap than plastic.
All samsung phones are sooooo ugly, sooooo boring, soooooo full of specs without personality. Quantity but no quality. I will never buy o phone like that. Grrrrrrrrr.
To be honest, HTC can't really talk. I've seen some of their HTC One devices in stores and the quality control is pretty dodgy. I've seen small gaps between the white plastic and aluminium and rough, sawtooth-like edges from the plastic. Also, you can't hate on Samsung because a lot of people still like their design and build quality even if it doesn't have that "premium" feel of aluminium.
"S4 has fallen short on everyone's expectations is in the design and build quality aspect, where the phone is significantly inferior to the aluminum unibody HTC One"
Since when a SUBJECTIVE preference of someone that has some weird fetish about metals becomes the same preference for everyone ?
I find the S4 to have a great design feel and look, the plastic from which is made from looks more premium than the aluminum cover that HTC ONE has.
So what you guys said in your article is completely wrong since people have different opinions and preferences.
The haters may say whatever they wanna say but those that like the S4 will buy it by hundredths of millions and that's all that counts.
S4 is for the ones that like it and not for the haters obviously.
I actually find HTC ONE aluminum body and design to be very ugly it's like an aluminum beer can that just waits to be smashed. LOL

According that same site:
"Almost every device is likely to break when dropped face down on hard pavement, no one can deny it. But Samsung’s devices appear to be more vulnerable to shocks than the HTC One or the iPhone 5."

One kept dropping signal and the second SGS4 the speakers busted! The volume setting was set 3/4 of the way up. Never again will I buy a Samsung phone. On the other hand my HTC one worked with no problems! Its a great phone with amazing innovation, look and power! SGS4 failed!!
jojoarmani, 29 Apr 2013If HTC One has 13MP instead of 4MP camera than it would be perfect! yawn

wh3resmycar, 29 Apr 2013pfft.. it's not like you're not going to wrap your phone in a rubber case or something.
mat... moreyou get a phone with a sweet dewign cause you want to feel it, to show it off, buying a phone, and then putting it in an ugly case is just a waste. Might as well make the phone be encased in a brick.
No, the casing and design is just as important as everything else.
