    I wish mine was black. If you look at the ATT Titan review video here on the site, they show the difference between black and gunmetal

    Mine does not seem plastic. If the large part of the back was plastic, why would they have different rubberized plastic add-on pieces? Much cheaper to just have a one piece and put different coatings on it. Tapping on the inside and outside sounds the same and has the same exact color.

    Why do people want aluminum or metal phones? As thin and small as the parts are, if they were aluminum, won't they be easily bent or chipped if hit or dropped? Plastics parts now a days are pretty strong and can take a lickin'.

    Same thickness plastic would snap at the same thickness of aluminum.

    Maybe they should start using Kevlar.

    Motorola Razr use kevlar. Too bad it's Android.

    I think it's carbenfiber not Kevlar. I would love to have an all carbenfiber cell phone.

    You're absolutely wrong, its not plastic. Take off the back cover and look inside the edge of the camera lens opening you'll see shiny unpainted aluminum.

    Premium devices need to have premium materials. Take Samsung for instance, the biggest gripe all across the board is that all their devices are plasticy. They are high end devices inside low end plastic casings. I personally don't care how good plastics are now a days you'll wind up with a cheap feeling and looking device. The only device I would consider purchasing that's made out poly carbonite plastic is the Nokia Lumia.

    Just make sure you face the kevlar part away from your body. That way it will stop any bullet from damaging the gorilla glass ;)

    AT&T titan. Top part is definitely metal. Bottom part with winphone logo is likely plastic.

    Who needs a Titan Big D5? I could knock someone out cold too with my ALL METAL Omnia 7 :D

    Might take a couple of whacks but still achievable. :)

    I stand corrected. :) Without seeing that shiny ring you would never convince me it was alu. It doesn't even sound like alu to me when I tapped on it.

    The way you can tell it is aluminium is when it is cold. The metal part of the back is much colder that the plastic antenna bit with the Windows Phone logo on. When it is warm, the paint on the aluminium makes it feel like plastic.

    Sounds like a mythbusters test is needed. Pretty sure the kevlar in body armor is a bit thicker than whats used in the razr though.

    general rule of thumb, if it is cold to the touch then it is metal (aluminum for phones)
