Whether it was made the way it is, or the way you wish it to be, the GS3 is a crappy lookin' phone regardless.

Samsung, especially now after this trial, will be nothing more than a cheap knock-off Apple-wannabe who will never catch up again.

You are right. We should all only be allowed to own Apple products. Apple invented everything and therefore nothing else is allowed to be made. :rolleyes:

By the way, the iphone might as well be an antique in the tech world. Talk about a 3 year old dated design. Guess Apple ran out of ideas when they made the iphone 4, huh? I find the iPhone slow, dated, too little of RAM, not enough horsepower and with a very stale looking OS. To me, that is the definition of ugly, and being lazy with your product. I can't even stand to hold the iphone anymore cause it is so tiny and woefully inadequate. ;) Enjoy.

Yea carbon fiber wannabe in the end of the day it is still vinyls! :7 3M 2012 vinyls.

Well, unfortunately real carbon fiber can't be used. Or did you not read that part? Metal and real CF block the NFC signal, which means no Google Wallet or Isis. And real CF covers would be too rigid, causing cracking after limited use, since only 2-3 layers of cloth could be laid, before it would get to thick and heavy.
What i have is better for this application and use. The rubber will last longer and is not as slippery as real CF. And it feels better in the hand.

By the way, I used to race superbikes in the US and England. I know a thing or two about Carbon Fiber. Call it as you like, but you are not very well informed. And by the way, it isn't 3m. Cheers.

i like apple just as much as the next guy. But the last two posts i have read from you are ridiculous.
What are you gaining by trolling about how awesome apple is, all others are copies, and all other companies are copying their "ecosystem" lol on these forums?
seriously man, get a hobby.

Did you read what you replied earlier when I mention vinyls then you said it is not! :rolleyes: and now you are telling me it is some type of vinyls?! Anyways like I say no matter what it is still vinyls carbon fiber wannabe! How well do you want me to be informed about a vinyls or piece of carbon wannabe sticker stick on your back cover brah?

Anyways if I was gonna have a piece of vinyl I would go 3M instead of a so called special piece you have there! :7

Please, refrain from comment if you...

Nah, I'm just kidding buddy. I actually find funny this kind of posts. I always wonder who would say such nonsense.

Sometimes I lose faith in humanity and rational people...

Believe it or not, upon reflection, although I am not keen on the form factor as in aesthetics, the device does feel much "nicer in the hand" than my iP4 ever did, but the ONE thing I do like about the design is the color of my pebble blue metallic shining through the glass.

I would have LOVED the garnet colour... damn Canada ;)

If you don't mind, where exactly did you get the back cover? I'm looking to change mine out because I go caseless and I'm starting to notice scratches and abrasions on the back (can only be seen in direct light, but still there). I love the thin profile of the phone so a case is no go for me.

I got it from Amazon. Search for [Aftermarket Product] Brand New Blue Frame+Black Slope Pattern Back Rear Battery Cover Door For Samsung Galaxy S3

It is 15 bucks.

Owning a white GS3 myself, I gotta say I much prefer the original design to the OP's modifications. Sorry, just my opinion.

Just recently got these two back battery covers. My clear case does still go on though very snug. Im currently using the first cover without the clear case. Looks sharp on the phone imo. Both are from China and took 3 weeks to get them from This site.


This is a metal back and NFC does not work with it on.

Real leather and NFC does work with it on and it gives a better grip.
