Question [Q] Decent priced back?

My play could really use a new back cover. The only one's I could find are like $10 while extended batteries & backs can be found for $15 (both amazon)

anyone know where I can get a new cover cheaper?
(Veizon jacked up their prices too )








Note: Please forgive my rule-breaking because this fits here so much better than Xperia Play Q&A

Comparatively, no. If you're paying $10 for a stock battery cover, and $15 for an an extended cover and battery, then you're much better off just throwing down the extra $5 for a new battery.

That's what I was saying. I'd rather just buy a new back cover for like $5 if possible and that's why I asked. The real thing is it's in bad shape and should be replaced but it's not super urgent so I ask first before jumping to my conclusion of no and just buy the extended battery and extended battery cover for $15.

I see the Standard Battery Cover in Verizon Wireless' online store, priced at less than $4.
