Hey, Mi Fans!
Earlier there was a time when phones were devices in a variety of sizes and shapes with one thing in common: they were made from Polycarbonate. Over the past few years, things have changed with phones appearing in a variety of finishes, from Metal and Leather to Polycarbonate and Glass; however, nowadays Metal Finish and Glass Finish are common and they are giving tough competition to each other.
Glass or Metal, each building material has its own pros and cons, ranging from the texture and feel in the hand, to durability and its ability to withstand the odd accidental drop. Let's see some of the details for both of them and then you decide, which one do you prefer! How's that? So, let's get started.
Metal was first adopted in mass market smartphones about half a decade ago. Nowadays, most of the manufacturer gives metal back finish to their smartphones but here some manner of aluminum alloy that's very thin and light is used because the customers love thin and light. Nobody wants a heavy phone built from cold forged steel to lug around all day.
For many, metal equals premium. Seeing an aluminum phone polished or anodized with a crisp finish does make a phone look good, so naturally, a lot of people associate them with high-quality, even if only subconsciously.
Nearly all current flagship devices not only make use of a glass panel to protect the screen but have opted for ceramic glass encasings on the back of their phone as well. There are plenty of phones with full glass backs to go with the full glass front. They can be beautiful and give a look that compliments a great design. They can also be fragile; phone screens break all too often and so do glass backs.
So which is best depends on what you look into the smartphone
