Results: Glass back on the LG G6, yay or nay?

LG hasn't been shy about experimenting with the materials on its phones. It went from a faux brushed metal finish on the G3 to a leather back on the G4, then went full metal with the G5. Well, the latter sparked a bit of controversy, since the manufacturer used a bit too much primer for the paintjob and the G5 didn't feel as cool as you'd expect a metal flagship to feel. But still — there was no lie there.
For one reason or another, LG's 2016 flagship wasn't well-received, so it makes sense that the smartphone slinger could try some different ingredients in the recipe. Would a glass sandwich be one of them? Possibly — but rumors are just that. Still, we thought we'd ask you — would you like to see a glass-backed LG G6? Here's how the votes tallied up!
Glass back on the G6, yay or nay?
Yes, I love glass sandwiches!
I guess, as long as it looks and feels nice.
No! Stick to metal, LG.
No! Go back to leather, the G4 was cool.

I really like the look and feel of the G5. No matter what everyone else has said. It's partly why I bought it. The Samsung Galaxy S7/Edge is too much glass. Too much to worry about. My Nexus 4 was glass front and back. I like to keep my phones pristine so I either skin them or case them. Or both. If LG would have made the "Friends" available I would stick with the modular design. I like having a removable battery although I don't need it. Batteries wear out over time. So being able to do that gives it more value in the long run.

Glass sandwich all the way. To this day, I feel that the iPhone 4/4S and Galaxy S6/S7/Note family of devices are the sexiest phones in history, due to the sleekness of the design. I really hope that this trend continues for a long while, and that other major OEMs adopt it.

Aluminum. Don't care what you call it, that "glass" still looks and feels like cheap plastic."Glass" is not a premium build material IMO.
