    Default Note 3: Faux Leather Back

    Hi Everyone.

    I am curious to what peoples thoughts are on the Note 3's faux leather back?

    Initially I was a bit hesitant expecting it to be too hard and tacky looking, however upon opening my Note 3 I instantly fell in love with the faux leather back.

    It has an almost soft but solid feel to it and it makes holding the phone comfortable with a premium feel, this has to be one of Samsung's best design features on a smartphone.

    What is everyone else's thoughts and experience?

    Completely agree with you OP. Makes for a great comfortable feeling. Also adds to the design features of the phone.

    Definitely love the un-slippiness & look of the G3's back plate. And it is not a fingerprint magnet!

    I too like the new leather like back on the black Note 3 but for some reason the white version is more like hard plastic! It doesn't have the soft feel of the black back.

    Kind of odd how a lot of reviews poke fun at the back and even criticize it yet many actual users like it. Just goes to show that critics will always try and find something to knock about whatever it is they're reviewing. The same thing applies to the plastic construction. Does plastic necessarily = cheap? Maybe to make but I like the feel of the Note 3 just fine and I too am a fan of the back. It feels pretty nice to me. I don't think I've even seen a white one to check out the back on but I'll be sure to check that out if I do.

    Some people complain "it's plastic" or they want to hide what carrier they are with and stuff like that but I like the faux leather look...even though mine is covered with a completely clear transparent tpu case...I didn't mind the look and feel when it was "naked"

    T mobile has the leather back and it's soft. Real nice.
    Mine is the plastic. It's alright I do prefer the leather one I saw!!
    I agree that at least it's doesn't show fingerprints!

    I liked it so much I immediately felt the need to preserve it with an Otterbox Commuter.

    I like it a lot. At first I thought it was going to be tacky, but when I got the phone I liked it. It gives the phone a more premium look and it feels better in the hand.

    I have no real problems with it. Being textured, I think it feels a bit nicer than the smooth plastic backs of previous phones I've had. I actually use a Samsung S View cover now, and it has basically the same kind of feel. The edges can be a little hard if the press against softer skin, so I try to avoid doing that, but overall it's fine, too.

    I'm also a fan. I think it gives it a more premium look and feel. It goes great with this phone. Im not however a fan of the S5's new "dimpled" back.

    Back cover is not bad, Commuter is what I have on mine too. Same case model for my Note 2.
