This guy's phone is already scratched and dented after 2 months of use, and he's still praising HTC's build quality. So HTC One owners, be sure and put a plastic case on that beautiful phone.


Did you even look at the picture before you wrote this comment? Those are miniscule scratches, something that happens with every other phone, too.

Too many people brainwashed into thinking that aluminum is a 'premium' material, when it really isn't.


You only seem to associate "premium" with indestructibility, whereas "premium" for quite a few people may mean things like looks and how it feels to touch -- I personally do consider alumium a premium material when it comes to smartphones simply because it looks and feels so much more pleasant than the various kinds of plastics that are commonly used.

I remember in the old days, when Android used to be about practicality and customization, and not about people's phones being a fashion accessory, and people treating them like jewelry. I guess we have Apple to think for that ;)


Anything that gains enough popularity will sooner or later do the same thing as long as it's physically possible.
