If you bothered to check out the source material you would know that the reviewer dropped his from counter height and cracked it and he also saw one of the Google guys with his phone's back cracked as well. He explicitly states that it is too easy to crack.

Durp.

He's also an apple fan boy. Don't think that has anything to do with it do you?

well there are 3 basic solutions to delicate phones...

1. Don't build it out of delicate materials, nothing you can do about it currently but complain to the manufacturer.
2. Buy a decent case.
3. Don't drop your phone?

In the past like 8 years of me owning cell phones, I've only ever dropped 1 of them once, at the movie theater i thought it was in my pocket and let go, and bam to the pavement, it was fine... but i made sure i was more careful about that after... Simply just be more thoughtful of your device. thumb.gif

there are reasons why plexi or acrylic won't be considered.

I saw, I was just addressing someone else. I can't say much about it, giving up practicality for some sort of artificial prestige just strikes me as ridiculous. Stuff like unibody aluminum casing I can understand since it is both a "premium" material and practical, glass is beyond me though.

agreed
glass on the front; fine I get that.
Glass on the back is plain stupid. Seriously.

But what other material can you make the back/chassis of a phone with without the cost being astronomical?

glass: "fragile"
aluminium: "people complain that its copying apple blahblahblah"
plastic: "its too cheap feeling"

cork backing or Bamboo!!! Something totally different

This may be my upgrade from my SGS2 i9100, LTE be damned all I know is it crushes battery life. Ask all the new IP5 people, I've heard nothing but complaints about it now(from friends).

Scratches are my only concern. I am very careful with my phones, I don't use cases but never drop them. The only damage they could sustain with the care I give them is light surface scratching.

He's used the Galaxy Nexus as his phone of choice for the past year. You're just being stupid

No.


New basebands like the qualcomm mdm9615 have native support for LTE, making battery life a non-issue for LTE. In fact, LTE is more power efficient than 3G at this point (as seen from the graph)...it's a race-to-idle situation in most cases.
