    How do you feel about the decrease in weight from 4S to 5 (140g to 112g)

    A major complaint with plastic Androids is that they are light and this gives the impression that it doesn't feel premium therefore cheap. Given that the materials of 5 is glass and aluminum would you feel the same?

    Where do you get your facts?

    From 4S to 5 it is going from 140g to 112g, thats significant.

    android is light and feels cheap because the majority use plastic.

    iPhone 5 even though it's lighter it uses alumunium and glass, so it feels premium. and i'm one of those who love when iPhone becomes lighter but still uses a premium material like alumunium and glass, so when things lighter dropped, its probability to break is minimal when it's light just like ants jumping from the roof. lol
