Default Back cover design

Had a play with the GS2 yesterday in a p4u shop & it made me want the phone even more but one thing that immediately stood out to me was the textured design of the back cover. Not only does it feel horrible but it doesn't quite fit in with the otherwise lovely design of the device.

I really didn't like it at all. It reminded me of cheap some Chinese electronics. Infact when I got home I dug out a 2yr old mp3 player that I bought & it was very similar.

Still getting one though.

When i get the phone the second thing im gonna do is, glue a textured finish on there, maybe some fabric or leather make it feel classy. Should give the phone a nicer texture and change the look of the device.

First thing would be scream like a Justin b fan ?

To comment on your thoughts, there might be a after market company that will make a metallic back cover if the demand is there?

Why not just buy a case for it? I wouldn't fancy taking glue to the back of my phone.

I've had the phone for about a week now. I love the back cover!

The texture makes it easier to hold and is nice to the touch. It also makes the back less prone to scratching which was apparently a problem with the original Galaxy S.
