    Yes was thinking the same thing. Could look good. I like that matte black look of the Z10. They should promote the look like a high end black matte and carbon fiber sports car.

    I thought he stated in his video that the chin is metal bit painted over in the metallic color.

    I don't think it's metal. Putting the antenna in a plastic "chin" is a long time trick of smartphone makes only finally broken by the HTC one..maybe the silver sides are painted metal but the chin is most def plastic from what I can see

    So do we know if that chin is metal or plastic yet?

    Great looking device, anyway. GS4 and HTC One are ugly to me. This is pure class. Though I still think this style of phone is silly (phablet).
    Painted metal. Watched a video on it and the owner had dropped the phone and the paint chipped off exposing a black metal underneath.

    The side just above the USB and HDMI ports doesn't integrate very well - I think it's part of the back cover, but it still doesn't line up nicely.

    The HTC one is probably my favorite Android phone from a hardware design POV. I think I prefer the looks of the Z10 to the Z30, not a fan of the painted bottom nor the front glass that wraps around at the top. But if they're going for SGS4 looks then they might be successful with this device.

    If the Z10 had a bigger screen in the same form factor, it would look very sleek. I like how the Z30 doesn't leave a lot of dead unused space above the screen.

    I'm happy with the Zed's screen size. I wouldn't be able to reach the top left corner with my thumb when holding in my right hand if it was any bigger. Bigger isn't always better

    The use of the Braun-style/dieter rams speaker grills seem a bit cheesy to me. Kind of like a miniature leica camera that shoots 16mm. And I'm not on board with the inlays on the rear of the phone.

    I mean, it's better looking than most electronics on the market, but I think the taste level is wanting. The average consumer goes: look at those Dieter Rams inspired speaker grillls...brilliant industrial design! I prefer originality to derivitism. And I think Apple was a bit more editorial with their hardware design (similarly inspired by Braun), though not immune to criticism.
    This average consumer says "who the he11 is dieter rams?"
