    Default Any way to make phone feel more 'premium?'

    I want the phone to have a heavy more premium feel, and is there a way to do this? Such as replacing the battery cover or something with a heavier one?

    Put it in a case that is made of a material you like more.

    I bought me a couple of these. Initially I thought they replace the battery cover, but it snaps onto the rear to provide some additional protection. The camera lens is now recessed which is great to prevent scratches.





    They have a brushed aluminum look and look fantastic on the phone.





    Link to all the colors:

    What's a tbolt?

    Those aluminum backs look really nice but will they effect with the signal of the phone?

    I've experienced no drop in signal strength. Reception is the same with or without the cover on.

    I don't understand. Samsung, and every other phone manufacturer, invest piles of money to trim every single gram and make the phones as light as possible. To me, light = premium! Why do you think that heavy = premium?

    To me it feels too light. I like the weight of the htc or iPhone, especially the back cover, it's so thin and flimsy

    Put a case on it. Problem solved.

    With a light phone, you can make it heavier. With a heavy phone, you're screwed. I'll take light please.

    These look pretty cool. On there website they sell a black cover with black leather insert. It is a replacement for your current batter door and not a snap on cover which has its pros and cons.

    Here's an actual battery door that should give a premium feel to it



    There are a lot of color options.

    Having a certain weight and materials can make the phone feel premium. Lightweight nor heavyweight really determines this. Just the build quality and materials. And it's no secret that the "flimsy" plastic used on this phone makes it feel less premium than other devices. Not that it's a bad thing or it's not but it's the impression you get. You can read any review of the phone and they would mention how it doesn't have a premium feel when compared to some devices like the iPhone or htc one x. Not that I agree but if it doesn't feel premium to someone then that's how it is to them. Just like a device can look nice to you but ugly to someone else.

    gs3 are getting jelly bean too though right? And yeah if I put a case on it what kind of case? Someone earlier actually posted a link to one.

    And Scorpio is that a battery case cover or the actual back cover?
