Today Samsung announced two new colors for its Galaxy Note 5 that look pretty nice. But one Reddit user has one-upped Samsung by creating a clear backside for his Note 5.
Reddit user Skarface08 recently posted a photo of his Galaxy Note 5 with a clear rear cover that allows you to see the insides of the device. The process of making this clear back cover actually sounds a bit easier than you might think: Skarface08 says that he used a heat gun and suction cup to pry the back plate off, then took a razor blade to one side to take off all of the colored film. He then reattached the back cover and voila, a clear backside that still has the Samsung and Galaxy Note 5 branding.
Obviously this isn’t something that Samsung is going to approve of, but I must say that it looks pretty darn cool. And if you ever decided that this clear back is no longer awesome — which seems unlikely — you might be able to buy a replacement back cover online and then put it on your phone.
