    Just got my G3, like it so far. However, the back cover is so smooth and slick, easy to drop.
    Are there any replacement back pieces that are a bit tackier than stock?
    I'd rather not go full case, don't really care for them.
    Thanks in advance.

    Yeah, I agree, it is slick and I hate a bulky case.
    Not sure about a replacement back piece, and I know you said you don't like a full case, but something worth considering is this cover if you don't find what you are looking for. Minimal, does not add hardly any bulk, easier to grip the phone:)
    (I'm using it in conjunction with a belt clip)

    Good question! ;)
    I remember the G2 had the same problem (about the only knock I had on that phone).
    Have you thought about sand-blasting?
    Can't say I've ever sand-blasted plastic before,but,I'd say it's worth a shot.
    Worse-case scenario,a replacement battery cover can be found quite easily on AMAZON on e-Bay.

    TPU cases. They're inexpensive (under $10), pretty thin, & make it easy to grip the phone while providing extra protection. They're always the first thing I buy for a new phone.

    Hmmm, interesting!
    Made me think about Plasti-Dipping it! If you don't like it, peel it off!!
