    Default Galaxy S5's textured back. Yay or nay?

    What do YOU guys think of the S5's back?

    This isn't a thread about the overall design of the S5 (which IMO, hasn't changed very much) but more so about the textured back.

    Personally, I think it's a step up from the cheap feeling, glossy plastic present in the S4 and S3. Feels so much better in your hands. Those who used the 2012 Nexus 7 will probably get what I mean. Still a step down from the pleather back used in the Note 3, though.

    Plastic. Samsung phones are notorious for using them.

    A lot of the previews are saying it feels really nice and "premium" though...guess I'll have to wait and see

    My only complaint about the Nexus 2012 back is that it's a finger print magnet. But it does make the device feel nice. Too bad it's always in a case so...

    I've never used a case on any of my phones. Don't want the added bulk.

    You mean Samsung galaxy S4s?

    IMO it's huge disappointment. I mean i thought they would have learnt by now that such flagship phones should also feel premium in looks and in feel in hand apart from loading with zillions of features.
    Look at HTC one they look so premium. Thats by far the best looking phone IMO.

    If it has the same feel as the 2012 Nexus 7, then I'm on board. I love the grip and texture of that backing.

    Yay from me. I want to see in person though. The Black and the White look nice.

    I"m fine with the back mainly because it's soft-touch plastic. The black model but I think the stitch would of been better for the other colors at least.

    Another question;

    What do you guys think of the joke that the S5's back resembles a band-aid?

    I like it. Some colors, not so much as others, but the nexus 7esque back looks much better than the fingerprint magnet glossy plastic, at least to me anyway.

    I think it looks nice. Much better than the cheap and greasy s4. I'm hoping it feels like the note 3.

    And also they're showing multiple colors right from the start rather than getting you to buy one then releasing more colors later. That kinda stuff causes buyers remorse

    since my favorite color is gold I would go with the gold one, but I hope it will have a nice grip to it and I'm pretty sure someone would say it looks like a band-aid... so my choice is in the middle; a "meh"

    I think that considering its dust and water resistance the won't go metal, do this seems like a nice option. I like the look of the blue a lot

    TBH, the gold version actually does kinda resemble a band-aid.

    So far, I'm seeing that the dimpled back is actually getting mixed responses. I actually thought lots of guys are gonna like it.
