I want to know what it would look like if you did this with a black phone. I know it would be also like a mirror but, how would the phone completely look?

In all honesty would probably not look good. Only the surface is anodized, and this is what holds the colour, so if you rub on it with emery paper or sandpaper you will go through this surface to bare aluminium below it. Only way I could see this looking good would be if you were able to "feather" the colour to make it look like a big worn area on the back of the phone.

That's looks so awesome!

Also this must've been said a few times already but I'm in a bit of a hurry. It feels warmer in your hand because the surface of the phone is much smoother now than what it was before. In other words there's less air caught in between the phone's surface and your hand/fingers and since air really isn't a good conductor of heat..
