So wanna see whether it looks better with it off than half on.
I would like to see the front too.

The chrome part that is shiny becomes matted also, you know bezel part which feels it's skin was removed and some are not and shiny, this method save my gs2's bezel that is degrading and makes it look new , although i didn't put some tapes on the screen so my screen protector has all the scratches from the sand paper xD, anyways just bought new screen protector and it feels really new.

Any pics? Would love to see it. I just got my sgs2 and when it gets some scratches I would like to apply the mat finish. But worried how the chrome bezel will turn out.

so many users want to see how the chrome bezel looks when it is matt

i have tried it with the sponge trick

after 3 hours of work i get a brilliant result.

I decided to "sponge" away the chrome cause my phone drop a lot of time and i have black scratches on the chrome bezel.
