    Default The building material of the S5

    What do you guys think the S5 will be built with? I wouldn't mind seeing a carbon fiber myself, but I think it will be Aluminum.

    Devices: Current: Nexus 5, Moto X, Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0); Retired: Galaxy S2 (Epic 4G Touch); Traded: Galaxy S3

    I'm thinking the same fake leather that was used on the Note 3. I think carbon fiber would be too expensive, and it would be hard to have a removable back if it was aluminum

    Just plastic. :-( Note 3 - grade plastic. I hope I'm wrong.

    The faux leather is something I could careless about, it shouldn't have been there and adding nothing to the look. They just need a fresh style for the GS5.

    They could use Kevlar. I'd be willing to pay a $5 premium for a Kevlar back. They'd still make a profit.

    That would be nice. The only problem I have with plastic is that it makes my hands get sweaty, then the plastic gets sticky, etc.
