    In case anyone was interested, the back cover was advertised as "hyper skin" or some other marketing buzzword. Its just Polycarbonate with 10% glass fiber reinforcement. Still, that plastic formulation is pretty durable and there shouldn't be any issues with durability.

    feels unbelievably cheap/flimsy to me. that was the 1st comment by my friend. "wow for such a high end phone that's the cheapest battery cover i've ever seen"

    I like it. I think it is far superior to the Incredible battery cover; now that thing was a joke.

    Yeah it does feel flimsy when it is off, but man I have had mine for about a month and no creaks, same with my GS2.

    I actually love the battery cover, I hate creaks on the battery cover and hate feeling them press in, this is great.

    Its thin, but seems durable.

    The lack of creaks is due in large part to the metal skelaton, btw.

    Exactly, it's nice and solid on the Nexus, like my Eris, not like the flimsy Incredible back.
