What the heck is Samsung’s problem? 聽Why can’t they make a phone with excellent build quality? 聽They make great phones from a hardware and software perspective, but I can’t get over that cheap plastic. 聽HTC gets it. 聽They used aluminum in the One S and ceramic in the One X. 聽The One Series and the iPhone 4S’ build quality puts Samsung to shame. 聽Samsung needs to stop with the cheap plastic!
Juan, to be honest with you, I think the whole build quality thing is overblown. 聽When I think build quality, I think how well the device holds up also. 聽The One X already has a build quality issue that requires customers to ship their phones in to HTC for them to be fixed. 聽The iPhone 4S, is made of glass. 聽I’m sorry, but making a phone out of glass isn’t exactly a smart move. 聽The Galaxy S3 is much more likely to survive a fall than the iPhone. 聽While plastic may not be the most expensive looking/feeling material, there’s no denying it holds up well. 聽In the end that’s what really matters.
I want to buy a new smartphone but I only have $150-$200 to spend. 聽I am on AT&T, and I have no idea what to buy. 聽When I went to the AT&T store, they were pushing me into an iPhone 4S. 聽The salesman told me it was the best phone they offered. 聽He was quite pushy though, and I didn’t want to feel pressured into something I might later regret. 聽What phone should I buy on AT&T?
Priscilla, if you are willing to spend $200, you have a few high-end choices. 聽My advice would be to wait just a little while, as the Galaxy S3 will be releasing on AT&T soon. 聽If not the Galaxy S3, I would recommend you purchase the HTC One X. 聽I would not recommend you buy the iPhone 4S at this particular juncture. 聽The phone is quite old (as far as smartphones are concerned), and a new iPhone is expected to be introduced in a few months. 聽In plain English, there are other options available that are better than the 4S. 聽If you’re going to use an upgrade, you might as well get the best phone available. 聽That phone will be the Galaxy S3.
