lawjk, the design quotient is more than just the type of material used. It factors in many other aspects related to design from its other physical aspects all the way to software. As such, this is our findings and opinion from testing various devices.

Still, you are entitled to your own opinion of the device and that's what this section is about - a user's personal review of a product because everyone's experience and findings may vary and it’s great to share this with other readers for more viewpoints. It's not about feedback for our content. For that, you should use our Reviews Lab forum which is also mentioned at the bottom of each article:- http://forums.hardwarezone.com.sg/hardwarezone-com-reviews-lab-online-publication-26/
