Default Battery cover

Decided to go for the S5 after all, mainly due to camera results, battery and recent reviews on screen.

However the battery cover is disgusting in all colours, has anyone seen any replacements for this, was hoping there would be some Note 3 leather style clones but I cant find anything.

No links to full cases please, never use them.

Cheers

i woulnt change it, you would lose the water protection or have a worse protection with an non original cover.

Also i believe the stock covers have antennas wires to help the signal

I agree it looks hideous in pictures, but I don't think it looks too bad in person (though the only color I've seen is the white).

My advice would be to get a case.
