Samsung talks about the advantages of plastic or “glastic” construction

Samsung Galaxy S20 FE

The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE was officially revealed and arrives in UK for 679 €. The new smartphone may not even be a top of the range, however, it does not fail by much.

We have interesting specifications, relevant features and an appealing design. Although Samsung has chosen plastic for its construction, the smartphone shows to have an immense quality for the requested price.

Samsung talks about the advantages of plastic in the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE

In an excerpt from a Samsung video, we can see the brand mentioning advantages of building the smartphone in plastic instead of building glass. In fact, they call it “glastic”. Plastic + Glass.

In fact, it is not entirely wrong, quite the contrary. Samsung says that this new construction leaves no fingerprint marks on the back cover, which serves for wireless charging and is even more resistant than glass.

In all aspects, Samsung is correct. However, I believe that the manufacturers have accustomed us badly. They gave us tops with a construction so beautiful and so uneven that it made us wish that everyone was like that. Although glass is one of the worst options for building a smartphone.

I lost count of the times I broke the back of my smartphones. When the terminals were made of plastic or aluminum, this did not happen.

I remember that Samsung has given us a glass construction at its tops since the Samsung Galaxy S6. Smartphone that stood out from all the competition at the time due to the choice of construction materials. Is it a different story now and Samsung’s future is going through Glastic?
