    I've now broken my THIRD back glass on my S10! I never have dropped the phone nor even bumped hard that I can recall, but for some reason the idiotic glass back is broken again and I'm tired of the hassle of replacing it. What rocket scientist came up with the idea to use glass!!!??

    Anyway, I really don't want to get a case because I bought the phone because it was so thin and sleek. So all I want to do is get a replacement back MADE of plastic, but I can't seem to find one anywhere. Does such an animal exist? If not, why not? Someone could make some easy money with this idea!

    Maybe with a battery or display... But i can't see a reason to avoid a third party backplate.

    It probably wouldn't be THAT expensive to have one fabricated from acrylic if you can't find one.

    Realistically though, the writing is on the wall. You've broken three of them, use a case!

    I'd love to have the back of my Note 10+:in plastic.
    Who wants an original phone.

    Don't care if that's the only way you can do wireless charging.
    Glass is a poor design.
    Trade ins really ain't that good.
    The folks that take your phone in on trade,
    Try hard to find something wrong with it.

    I tell them to STOP..
    GIVE ME MY PHONE BACK

    I give it to a family member or somebody.

    I can't talk take the BS.

    I wished there was a way to hold Samsung responsible for all the gladd.

    Wireless charging works equally well through plastic and glass. Glass is used simply because it's more "premium", and also more scratch resistant.

    Why wouldn't a shop closely examine your phone's condition before offering you a price?

    Samsung was offering the rebate.
    I was at Best Buy.
    The lady acted like it was gonna be her personal phone.
    I had all the original cords..chargers and box complete.


    People talk about premium phones.
    .it makes me wish.
    All premium phones start at 2500.00 and go up.

    Stick a diamond ring on yer finger and wear it.
    So you got premium.


    I'm very tired of playing with Glass gets stuck in a case..and even gets broken there.

    I guess when design a phone they don't leave options like that on the table , could be many reasons why. But agree if OP having that much of a issue breaking , a case is mandatory .

    There is a ceramic back available for the S10 PLUS which has great durability reviews. Unfortunately not available for the S10! Also, I've found a polycarbonate back for the S10 at https://www.amazon.ca/Replacement-Sa...cUvbUpU6810834

    But it only ships to CANADA! There are also other options available in 3rd world countries. How can I get this in the good ol' USA?

    I want them to be expensive.

    I have never liked things made out of glass

    I got a China cabinet full of expensive China.
    Taking up space.
    In 35 yrs its been used maybe one time.

    I just wouldn't trust it , would it keep its water resistant rating? Wireless charging?

    Plastic doesn't effect either of those things, as long as it's fitted correctly.

    I'll tell you what doesn't retain an IP rating (worthless as they are), cracked glass.

    Makes sense should work and what your saying, but any time you change something that wasn't orginally designed stuff can happen, as for ip water resistant thats a feature I like on phone for added safety measure , yes cracked glass thats out the window but I wouldn't use a phone with cracked glass and if I repaired it , be someone certified to make sure it keeps the ip rating .

    The frame for the ceramic backs is different anyway. Ceramic can still break but it is more durable.

    For the plastic contact Nufix and see if they ship it to you
