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.

It looks great! Specially on white but how did you get it done so neatly? It quite hard to do on the curve and next to the screen

I was hoping to buy a finished frame, preferably with soft touch surface, but nothing comes up on google. This wasn't a problem with my old HTC TD2. The damn thing is too slippy for my hands, and I don't want any cover case (won't fit in car holder). Any chance to find it?

I've got an S3 and I did this to my black S2, but idk if I'm going to do this to my S3 yet lol. Only had it for like a month. I did this to my S2 when I had it for like 10 months haha.
