    Makes a lot of sense for them to just be stickers consisting it's a budget device it's really just a small aesthetic change that doesn't change the fact that the DTEK50 has some solid speaker sound.

    Interesting, so the frame of the DTEK50 and the Idol 4 is different. Idol 4 has a hollow speaker hole back to have a 360 degree speaker front and back.

    Fully agree. It's never nice to see phones getting tortured and broken but it helps potential buyers out a lot to know what they getting into before they make a purchase.

    For $299 i still expected some metal speaker grills. I don't mind having a couple 'stickers' for speaker grills but the price IMO should match. Maybe $199.

    But, as you said. The speakers more than make up for the plastic covering. Still a really solid device for bending and the screen stood up to high heat.

    Except it is a $199 phone. With a $100 BlackBerry Tax.

    Not sure why you'd expect them to be metal, it's not like a metal grill is very 'premium', if anything it's a hassle as it could rust out easily or paint could chip off.
    Not to mention 299...
    Is that supposed to be expensive ?

    Makes our purchase even more worth it! And yes, I was a bit surprised with the grill sticker, too, although, it doesn't really matter that much.

    I'm not losing any sleep over your opinion. I'm just saying, you seem to be ignorant of the definition of the word "vandalism."

    Don't think so,definition of the word vandalism= willful damage or destruction of any property with no other purpose than damage or destruction of said property. No ignorance on my part,my view expressed was lite hearted and even had an emoji after it. Good night and sleep well.

    Wikipedia:
    "Vandalism is 'action involving deliberate destruction of or damage to public or private property'. The term includes criminal damage such as graffiti and defacement directed towards any property without permission of the owner."

    Findlaw:
    "Vandalism is an offense that occurs when a person destroys or defaces someone else's property without permission."
