What material would your ideal smartphone be made of?

The metal HTC One and plastic Samsung Galaxy S4 have been very divisive. Would your ideal phone be made of metal or plastic? Or something else?!?

It's not what they are made off... it's HOW.

I do personally tend towards metal (Wave 3, iPhone 5, some Nokias etc), but then: some of the most solid feeling devices I have used were plastic...

In My Opinion a Phone that mostly made of glass feels the nicest (Not as if I just bought a Nexus 4), but then durability comes into question in my situation I am quite easy on phones so they seldom get scratched or get cracked which can be a problem for other users.

I actually do not mind if my phone looks used after a while. But there's a difference in how well devices age. Oddly, I find a scratched stainless steel or aluminium body less annoying than a scratched plastic case... I guess it's all down to many factors. Taste, overall design, balance, ergonomics etc etc... I found the glass of the iPhone 4S uncomfortable. Ditto the Sony Z.

And there's just no way to explain how unappealing I find Samsung's Galaxies - and I do know they are sturdy despite the plastic (in fact: because of it).
