Polished T-Mobile G2 Battery Cover
Some members like to go deeper when personalizing their devices, even further than just software. XDA member znanoDA took a step into personalizing the body of the device itself, making a chrome polished finish for the battery cover of the G2. All started because the plastic layer started to peel, which is a problem many will be familiar with. After noticing this, he decided to use sand paper to get rid of the plastic. The finished work looked nice and shiny. The original poster mentions that he used the following materials:
- Automotive Wet/Dry sand paper
- 400-600-800-1000-1500-and finally 2000 grit
Be aware that the only responsible for making this will be you, so proceed with caution. If you have another method, please join the thread and share your experiences.

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
This month was a big one for Android 5.1.1 updates, as you can see from last week's roundup and the barrage of posts on the portal's front page in the recent past. So far we are seeing the lineup of Wear watches, the Nexus 4, Nexus 9, Nexus 10, Nexus Player, and a handfull of others slowly make their way to the latest Android. While waiting around for updates may be fine for casual users, this is XDA; we have OTA download links...
