    where can i find specs that list body material (don't want a phone with a glass back!)

    I had an LG VX60 that was a great phone but I had no idea the back was made of glass. it is hopelessly broken and disintegrated while i put a protector on the screen and that is fine. Don't want to repeat this mistake but unless i'm looking at a phone that I can go see on a shelf somewhere, I can't find a specification/comparison site that lists what the back of the phone is made out of. thanks

    I usually Google the phone name then specs. I always find sites that state the back material.

    I found this site that describes the phone in detail: https://www.gsmarena.com/lg_v60_thinq_5g-10103.php. Look at the section Body, then build. Hope this helps with your question.

    Good answer Serial Port. That was helpful.

    Glass backs should be outlawed. Total money grab.

    Over 20 years of phones and only one cracked glass display. I will have to respectfully disagree. My only cracked display happened because I got complacent and didn't buy a case/cover that I usually spend about $10-$15 when I buy a new phone.

    There's no practical reason for a glass back.

    You are entitled to that opinion and I don't fault you for that. I prefer the glass back as I feel it looks and feels better. I might feel different if I had multiple cracked glass-backed phones but I don't.

    Gorilla Glass backs are more expensive than plastic backs. I'd rather manufacturers spend the saved money on more RAM.
