    Default Alternative Back Cover?

    Starting to see them pop up on Ebay and Amazon. Has anyone tried one yet?
    I'm not a fan of the blue/silver/purple but don't want a case. A matte black replacement back cover would be ideal. So far I'm finding just about every color under the sun except matte black!
    Here's an example.

    Well at 181 views and no responses, I assume no one is really interested in this but I ended up receiving this one today and it is absolutely perfect. If you're not digging the color and slipperiness of the phone but don't want a case, this works great. VERY grippy and a perfect tight fit.
    Cheers!

    The plasic one looks good.
    I have heard that the metal backs reduce signal and prevent NFC

    I also would go with the plastic one. However I have not bought anything for a new backing yet. I am sure one day that I will!

    I would LOVE to find something that had more of a rubber or soft-touch feel that allowed more grip than the stock plastic.

    I just ordered THIS. I keep going back and forth between an alternative back cover and a thin case. I'll let you know how it is.
