Recently UMIDIGI has committed to produce metallic case smartphones to offer more durable and eye-catching devices.

However, maybe not all of you agree with this concept.
So, today's question is...

Do you prefer a cheap looking and breakable plastic body, or a sturdy and elegant, full metal unibody smartphone?

Edited by Daphone at 2017-4-12 04:05 \n\nI prefer metal body, but i do wish there was more grip in the phones.
A textured body and edges would be nice, and there are lots of avenues in design with texture to explore.

Maybe laser engraving can be used, maybe paired with more mechanical approach with CNC milling for a deeper more rough pattern.

Natural organic and geometric patterns can be explored, i would not mind if my phone had a look and feel like a plank of wood that's been in the ocean for a long time, or a board / pice of wood a sandblaster have hit to remove some of the softer parts in the wood.




The slick B&O design just dont do it for me, but in this case it is more a matter of functuon over form, a phone for me is just a tool and not a fasion statement, so in general i dont care how it look.

I agree, the grip is not so good, so, after dropping my phone a few times, I had to purchase a back case. Metal is better, but a little heavier. I know it's dissipating the heat, but how about absorbing shocks? Which is better?

I think plastic is underrated. Metal feels nice and cold but the grip is not that great and also, plastic has the ability to absorb some impact instead of being dented forever. The same applies for scratches and/or paint peeling off, since you can create colored plastic.

On the other hand, metal dissipates the heat much better but then everyone complains that the device is hot and rubbish and that the burn their hands, when in fact is better to have heat outside the device rather than being concentrated in rhe inside

if they build in good quality metal is good .. heat & shock must be avoided from manufacturer problems ...  most of the branded phones using now metal body & nonremovable battery .

Metal is good, but I preffered replaceable battery, it means no unibody.

Removable battery - yes, I prefer that too if given a choice, plus dedicated micro SD slot on top of dual SIM slots.  发表于 2017-4-16 16:10

I get the feeling of vibes when i touch my Z Pro during charging. The feeling I sometimes get when power supply input is not grounded. Have posted a thread in Z Pro forum.

My preference is plastic, if it can facilitate easier access in case of repair. Metal looks good but is very slippery for me..
