    Default Aluminum battery door for the Verizon Galaxy Nexus (i515)

    Does anyone know if it's possible to get an aluminum battery door for the Verizon version Galaxy Nexus? Please point me in the right direction if you know. Thanks.

    I can't answer your question, but please allow me to point out the cell phones are radio devices. Metal is a conductor, and therefore affects radio waves. Sheets of metal tend to reflect radio waves. Replacing a non-metalic cell phone back with a metallic back will affect the phone's radio (cell, LTE, WiFi, and Bluetooth) performance -- possibly improving things, but far more likely causing connectivity problems. Plus, there's a good chance it will increase the amount of RF energy leaving the face of the phone.

    Something to think about with phone backs, cases, docks, stands, and car supports.

    Wasn't the first iPhone completely aluminum on the back?
