Ukulele's are not really my main thing at all so I do not have much to compare; indeed the fact that is mostly made of plastic (the parts that will be in contact with your body, due to the plastic fretboard/bottom) makes it feel sort of more artificial than we usually feel when playing a normal ukulele or a guitar. Also, plastic might make you feel the sound a bit different, perhaps more dull, but good after all.
However, I chose this particular one due to the fact that it was meant for travelling, and indeed after a trip that lasted for 2-3 weeks (in a mountain bag, not even a suitcase) I can say that I am satisfied with it.
It feels a bit smaller than a normal ukulele, perhaps due to the rounded shape of the body. Tuners keep tune quite well even for all the movement that mine experienced (switched the default strings for other ones shortly after purchasing it).
Overall a good purchase for the value, but again, keeping in mind it's meant to be practical and tough, if the idea is to have a normal one that will mostly stay at home in good conditions, I would perhaps go for something more traditional.
