    It looks terrible. I would not recommend cellphoneshop.com / cellphoneshop.net. The camera lens and microphone cut-outs are incomplete. I paid for the Matte coating but it is more of an oil slick than anything useful. Completely disappointed.

    They refuse to make up for the poor product quality and dismissed the complaint even though I sent pictures of the skin. I ask for a full/partial refund (on the Matte coating) but in any case they want me to pay for postage despite the website saying otherwise.

    I should've looked up reviews on this company before.
    Sorry about that. Mine was pretty good quality, but I took it off because I got bored with it. What was it, $7? Not a real loss there.

    Boy was that easy. You literally just snap the back off, put the stickers on the new back, and snap that on.

    The green is such a nice lime color. It's perfect. In sunlight, it literally glows just like the green that glow in the dark/ glow under florescent lighting. Pretty wild.

    I think I want the Orange one but, It seems crazy as it's around $60-65 for everything from over seas... The white one with everything is like 1/2 that...

    I wanted to keep a backout plan, just incase I want to sell the phone at some point and the new buyer does not want to have a orange back.

    Yea, the black on the white does look good but, I will admit not as classy as the white on the back of the black phone...

    All, I did it as well: I purchased the lime green, then removed the flash/NFC from my old white cover and placed it on the green cover. Simple as that.

    Your not changing the speaker....Look a few pages back, It's pretty much the back cover, it pops right off. On it has the QI charger and NFC on it, they are like stickers that you need to replace on the other one...You can pull everything from your old one or buy new ones...

    Just look through the thread from the start, you will find everything on it, including where to buy everything depending on the color you want to change to...

    Yeah mines fine. It's awesome for everything but not having cyan yet. I just saw a HTC w8 and have to admit I was really jealous of it. I really like the on-screen keys and the always listening Cortana

    Did you use a hair dryer to remove the stickers?

    Cortana isn't always listening on the M8, at least not on mine. Though its coming to the Icon w/ Denim

    Weird because I seriously watched this happen in a authorized retailer Verizon store. It was an employee who owned the phone but since it's not a corporate store I just figured they had the update already

    Just got a new Lumia 930 with the green back -- anyone in the Michigan area want to trade backs? Because I'd like to have a black back and hopefully someone would like to have a green back, which would make it a win-win situation

    I actually am looking to do something like this when I get my Black 930. I love the black band and the contrast would be very cool.

    That looks sweet!

    That black on silver looks pretty awesome. I bought both the black and orange backs. I decided to go with the orange first. Orange is a little loud--more like safety orange--but I like that it's different.

    Here's a shot of mine with orange back--taken with my Lumia 822.

    I just ordered the white cover off ebay that has the charging coil and the NFC already on it. For those of you that have already made the swap, what did you do about the adhesive that holds the flash in place?

    Thanks!

    To bad that they didn't come out with a cyan back. THAT would probably have made me try it.

    I haven't done it myself. I read somewhere that you could just reuse the adhesive for the flash.

    Well I just bought the flash and stuck it on myself so I wouldn't know. But usually those types of things are still sticky so you should be ok. I wanted to keep my white one with everything on it because I am on the edge program so if a better windows phone comes out I'll just slap the white one back on and send it back. Then sell the green one here or eBay.

    If you want to sell your white back for say like $20 with all the "bits" on it, drop me a PM. I have a black phone and thinking about putting a white back on it...

    I'm not going to sell my white one because I'll need to send it back with the white one if I upgrade
