I could not agree more with the opinion that the fine finish of the device is compromised by factory handling or workmanship. You can be Leica would not let that go out.
Having a 3Gs, I have been looking forward to the new phone and as I always have a case it may not be an issue (for me), but it is almost too beautiful to cover up. I prefer the metal finish to those plastic phones out there.
Dude, get real. You're talking about maybe a dozen phones out of 5,000,000. Their quality control is actually amazing.

All good reasons, to a degree. The problem is that Nokia's latest and greatest is not just heavy when compared to the emaciated iPhone 5 (112 g), it is substantially heavier than the Galaxy SIII, HTC One X, Motorola RAZR M, all of which not coincidentally weighing in at a bit above or below 130 g. To be precise, the Lumia 920 is 50 g heavier than the Android beasts. Does Windows Phone 8 weigh that much?

I simply think it's not a wise design choice, there is no denying that aluminum is not the most durable metal.
What qualifies you to discount my thought that he WOULD NOT agree with me?
BTW, I have a MFA in Fine Arts
Not trolling, just expressing my thoughts and asking a legitimate question.
You have a Master of Fine Art in Fine Arts? How refreshing.
Couldn't they have used coating technology from the automotive industry?
AluCeram comes to mind -> http://www.aluminium-award.eu/2008/entries/industrial/en-a6-allroad-aluminium-door-panel/
German technology though, the Chinese manufacturers most likely won't have it and I wonder about price for a small device (if it's possible to coat in bulk).
