DESIGN AND BUILD QUALITY – DOES THESE MATTER?
From Samsung Galaxy Note III’s idiosyncratic leather back to HTC One’s aluminium uni-body, it is clear that manufacturers are flaunting their phones’ design to consumers. Should design really matter to you?
Perhaps, just perhaps, it should. That may sound blunt and harsh, but a phone’s design is not necessary for many users. Why? Because, to safeguard their highly cherished phones, many users, especially in India, buy elephantine and notso-pleasant-to-the-eye cases to withstand drops and impacts.
Hence, a big bulky case covers the phone and defeats the purpose of a phenomenal design. Those creative designers certainly do not like that. However, if you are the type who adores design, doesn’t drop phones, and is not much bothered about little scratches, investing in design does make sense for the experience’s sake.
