Maybe, maybe not. Who knows?

Did you watch the video of the SGS5 being dropped from the 2nd floor, face down? Impressive.
Screens obviously shattered, but it still works. Buy a brushed aluminium case... The phone is perfectly sturdy.... You do NOT wanna drop a HTC One from any height...

This ^^^

Plastic might not look or feel as nice as aluminium, but it's a far, far more practical substance to make phone bodies out of. It doesn't dent or scratch as easily, it transfers less energy to the more delicate parts of the phone during an impact and it's cheaper to replace if you do damage it. Especially on phones with removable back covers where you can replace that part for a few pounds and almost no effort.
