Take for instance any of samsung's recent phone (s3, s4, etc) while the feature list may be awesome, when holding them in the hand because they are so thin and so light they feel as if they are going to break, I've had an S4 in my pocket before too and it feels almost as if it wasn't there.
Because all these phones are so light they feel rather cheap. Personally I'm an android person myself, however when apple released the iPhone 4 is was astonishingly impressed with how solid it felt, heavy, thick, and it *felt* reliable.
Why are all these companies trying to move to making all their products feel like cheap chinese toys, instead of durable reliable devices.
Something else I was thinking about is why hardware buttons are being phased out, at the moment I'm on the Xperia Arc and I love the fact that I can physically click the home button when something goes wrong, it feels reassuring, I'm not saying I want qwerty keyboards to come back however, having a few physical buttons makes a phone feel bold and well rounded, instead of just being a screen.
I'm planning to upgrade to the Xperia ZL within the next week and the reason I chose so was because it has a dedicated hard reset BUTTON, so just encase the software goes funny, I can be reassured that I'll still be able to get my phone working, or at least off.
