In response to a YouTube video singing the praises of glass and metal phone bodies, I wrote the following: I'll probably get hated on for this: I prefer plastic cases because they take a beating better. Metal and glass are more fragile. I really don't understand those that feel glass & metal are positive things. Phones have always been plastic, they are utilitarian devices, not jewelry. But the younger crowd seem more interested in show than function. When enough users get their glass and metal devices damaged, I expect (and actually hope) that the tide of consumer opinion changes and we go back to more durable plastic cases. Am I the only one that sees the benefits of plastic?
