Re: Headline should read "Note 3 Twice as Strong as iPhone 6"
Metal bends before it breaks, plastic doesn't. Thin metal is weaker than thick plastic. News at 11!
Materials technology is at its limit when designers insist on thinner, smaller and lighter.
In the bike industry they say "You can have Light, Strong or Cheap. Pick two.".
I chose plastic too, a Moto 4G with rubber back plate. Robust is how you make it.
