    Many don't care but a lot of folks do. With Apple making very nice looking devices Samsung had to start paying more attention to their own design. If nothing else the S6 is cuter than the S5.

    Once again meh. I also couldn't care less about other people's opinions on what is a good or bad looking phone either. I liked the plastic and that's that.

    Very true. As trivial as this may seem, the S3's build quality is that very plasticy stuff that drove many to complain and pushed Samsung to the design language of the S6. The Alpha is a very nice-looking device (no, it's no 5s, but still) with premium build quality and materials. It was the start of something better for Samsung. Some may appreciate that.

    I never really got the whole metal vs. plastic but the Alpha finally had a design that put it in the same planetary system as the 5s.

    Plastic can be fine when done nicely (Lumia, 5c). Trying to make plastic look like leather is ...meh. That's why LG did what they did.

    It's good that you know what you like and don't let the media and others sway you.

    On the side. Use a paperclip to extract it.

    If she seriously only texts and talks why not get a pre-paid Android or Windows Phone for under a $100 ? Then it's brand new, with a brand new battery, and brand new warranty...

    The wife wants an iPhone, so she gets an iPhone. You don't want to know what happens when she doesn't get it.

    No doubt, there is not even a discussion about it Nah, when it comes to the next toy that I want, its much easier to get her approval if she is happy. Happy wife = happy life

    Depends on her tastes. If she likes girly colors and designs, the gold with the white bezel would be nice. Otherwise the Space Gray.

    I'll go with the 6 actually. More upfront but it will last you years plus Apple Pay is worth it

    If you want a "5", get a Nexus 5. It's the best phone out there.

    The 5C is junk, do not get that for her! Get the 5S, I promise it is better.

    One of the best, and at ~$350 for the 32GB model its a decent price for what you're getting.

    My work is pushing a 5c on me to replace my BlackBerry. Normally I'd be happy but we lock them down (disable the app store) and the Xenmobile app we're using for email leaves a lot to be desired.

    Anywho, I don't think the 5c is junk, its just not a 5s.
