Please do one article about slimer, more beautifull ones as well. I don't want such a fat case on such a filigrane device.

They're the largest phone manufacturer in the world, outsell Lenovo, Huawei, Xiaomi, HTC, LG & Sony combined, and articles about them (and Apple) bring in the most ad revenue. Considering nothing is free, it's understandable why they run so many articles on them. Simple equation. Talk about the brands most people care about, and get more clicks. More clicks=more eyes on ads.

Wouldn't that defeat the purpose of drooling over the build quality and design?

I typical just buy the S-Vew flipcovers from Samsung. They offer very little to no protection. I like it for the features it offers.
