Question Xperia Z1s Glass Panel(s)

http://www.gottabemobile.com/2014/03...ia-z1s-review/

According to this review, the T-Mobile SONY Xperia Z1s has a glass front, but a plastic back panel...is this correct?

I thought the Z1s was the same as the Z1 with both front & back glass.
I understand that T-Mobile requested a change to the frame which are molded in plastic instead of aluminum, but nothing about the back.

Can someone confirm this?

It's glass. That's the only review that says that...I wondered the same thing.

It's hard to tell due to the ASF installed over it...could be mistaken for being plastic.
Wished that T-Mobile didn't decide to change to the plastic frame...feels less top tier.

I guess having better reception is worth it.

Yeah, I was going to say, it's for reception. And it really doesn't make a difference anyway. As long as it's not shiny plastic, I'm fine with plastic.
