    Does anybody know to here l get an authentic battery housing I back for the L640? I've seen some stuff on Amazon and EBay but some of the reviews have not been good and makes me question the authenticity of the housing. I'm looking to cyan.

    The only "authentic" one I've found is the flip cover from the MS store. It's hit and miss with those Amazon and eBay sellers, which I came to find out when purchasing extra covers for my 635. I bought a yellow back cover on eBay for my 640, but the buttons are too flush with the cover, making them next to impossible to use. Haven't bothered trying again yet.

    Yeah, I had the same experience with the green cover. Never again. I believe that the ones that use only the OEM colors are a little more legit.

    As for the authentic flip cover, it adds slightly more bulk and made the phone uncomfortable to use. Removed it the other day and put on the original casing. If there is a good back cover, authentic or not, let us know.

    I believe that @Sedp23 has mentioned seeing them before in the physical MS store, blue, orange and black.

    Also Jack Neill has purchased from this person before and he said that it fit just fine: For Nokia Lumia 640 Housing Battery Back Cover Rear Shell White | eBay

    If you search lumia 640, you can find the black, blue and orange covers too in their shop.

    That house looks unofficial on those images. The "Microsoft" font is too bold. The original has thinner letters.
