Chinese manufacturers have long stood for their capacity to blast away affordable devices that might perform well but come with sub-par quality and uninspiring design...

why do you think it is heavy?

Nothing about its weight was mentioned in the article...

probably because most items made of metallic materials typically weigh more than their plastic counterpart. although the article doesn't out right discuss its weight, the photograph gives the opportunity to form our own perceptions on its weight.

Love the design, but would probably be scratched and nicked to hell within a few weeks (like the iPhone 5) I hope there are plenty of cases available.

I know they need to make this thing scratch/dent proof by making it with Zagg on it or something stronger. Otherwise it'll just live in a case and that way you might as well get a Samsung.

It reminds me of the 4th/5th generation iPod nano.

Yup, it does look like how Lumia 900/920 would have been if it were metal/aluminium, only the camera position is different.

Bet you all 500 bucks the screen would be placed in a similar way to the Lumia phones.

im sorry, all the time i see comments about samsung and that they should make aluminium bodies.
No thank you. this looks horrible.
Reminds me of like those 1950's sci-fi movie robots. big and clunky.
also think about this, aluminum and other metals transfer heat at a rapid pace.
the phone will always feel cold to your hands when you pick up, then after using it the heat will probably be very very hot to the touch. from the radios, gps and screen on .

When it comes to heat transfer, I would rather get the heat out as quickly as possible rather than keep it in. Ever see a plastic heat sink?

"but it definitely seems that more and more
companies are finally starting to realize the importance of good design, and that can only be good news"
Hope that samsung also realize the importance of good design, and good build quality, instead of churning out cheap plastic flagship phones every year..........

What does design matter if it has to live in a case? Manufacturers need to focus on durability just as much, if not more , than design.

Cool looking phone, but I have a few concerns. With that much metal, it could be prone to overheating. Also, it might be heavy which could result in it denting badly if dropped. Lastly, what was Huawei thinking naming it EDGE? Makes me think that this a 2G phone.
