When we asked what materials you want Apple to use for the back of the next iPhone, an all-metal backing won with 39 percent of the vote, followed by a glass backing like we saw on the iPhone 4 and 4S. Since the aluminum casing can't shatter like glass, it seems obvious why it is the top choice.
Plastic earned the fewest votes, only 6 percent, but if recent rumors are true, we could see a lower-end iPhone 5C with a colorful plastic backing.
