Modified battery cover with kickstand
This is my second kick stand mod. I wish I could find accesories like this so I didn't have to mod one. Below is my first mod with and after market sview cover with kickstand before I could find them anywhere. The link below it is the closest I could find thats similar that's affordable that does not cover the chrome sides. If you dont have a screen protector I wouldnt recommend using any sview type cover as there is a slight chance dust or dirt can get in between and scratch your screen. Happened to me even though the s view cover was felt material inside. So I now have a tempered glass on my phone.
Sview with kickstand mod
Seidio (covers the side) and another ebay seller makes (cant find link) but they're over $25.
For everyday use I found the sview cover a PITA to have to open and close the sview to make calls, text, check email, take picture (regular mode). So I only use it when I need extra protection on the screen. So I've been using the stock OEM battery cover but I missed the kickstand and I've been looking for a non slippery battery cover with kickstand on ebay but I cant find one yet. I use skinomi skin so I can't use one that covers the sides. So I just made one for now till someone comes out with one.
Bought this on ebay for my gf but came damaged so I used the kickstand from it
Cut out the frame around the kickstand with a dremmel and shaped it. Also made it thinner so I didnt stick out so much after I glued it to the back cover. I dremmeled from the bottom and just enough so the kickstand pins are still in their slot.
On the battery cover I cut a rectangular hole the size of the kick stand. The kickstand comes off so I just taped it on the back and traced it so i cut the exact size. Also made notches on one side of the cut so the kickstand pins have a pivoting point.
Then I just glued it to the back. It still a little thick so I may shave it down some more. But so far it's holding up pretty good.
This could either be good or bad. It kinda angles the phone up a little so its not so flat but very minimal. I kinda like it since it's angled more towards me in portrait.
