Default [DIY] Matte Black Samsung Galaxy S2

Was pretty free this morning, got sick of scratches/fingerprints or cracking my brains to decide on getting which case to use to protect my phone.

Who needs a case when you can have a diy matte black sgs2. no more scratches or fingerprints. Simply unscrewed the back bezel, remove it and got some sandpaper to do the job!

Yes! More pics please

How did you control that the sandpaper don't go more than the polish plastic parts?

i removed the 7 screws at the back and separated the back housing before i used sandpaper.

i used the finest sandpaper i could find and took me quite a while to do it. Key thing is to be patient and not rush!

I think the screen can be replaced with parts off Ebay.

you are wrong. the "warranty void" sticker is not on the screws but the battery compartment so warranty is not voided somehow.

i was using the finest sandpaper i could find, 80 i think .
