Default N9005 Black vs White Back Cover Difference?

I've read a few posts around the web that the White N9005 Note 3 has a more plastic-texture back cover and the black one feels more like leather.

I also saw a video comparison of both Black vs White and the reviewer said they felt the same.

Is it possible that the Carrier branded White Note 3 have a different texture white cover compared to the black?

I'm planning on buying an unlocked N9005 on eBay and want to get the white one. Can anyone confirm the back cover difference?

Yup it's different. I have both. International Set. Black back cover indeed got the leather look & feel. As for the white, it's just a normal hard plastic case with texture on it.

I'm pretty sure they only did this cause a soft touch white one would get dirty much easier.. My white one has a rather smooth back it seems like it'd be easier to slip out of my hand than the black one.

I've held both and the black one feels better in your hand, but in my opinion the white one looks better.

Pretty Irrelevant in my eyes as anyone who doesn't have some sort of case or cover on this phone is mental 😎😆

Yes, there's a difference. The black one has a rubber coating, the white does not.

Or simply knows how to be careful.

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

The simplest solutions are often the cleverest. They are also usually wrong.

No matter how careful you are accidents happen. I think a case is a must with this phone considering the size and cost.

There is a reboot bug OP that causes it to continuously cycle until you pull the battery. Disable wifi scanning to prevent this from happening.

Careful doesn't come into it mate unless you happen to live in a bubble , Accidents happen all to often and in most cases it wasn't your fault ...... A case is an absolute must with a phone of this size and a plastic metal look bezel ,which believe me looks crap once dropped .
Merry Christmas to all on XDA

PS And in my humble opinion the white one looks simply gorgeous when compared to the black one )
