    Was browsing some accessories for the Nexus and I came across this battery door that claims to be made of carbon fiber. I know a lot of you have been complaining about the battery door, do you think this would be a good replacement? It also makes you wonder what other kinds of materials they can use to make battery covers, perhaps one made out of kevlar to challenge the infamous Razr? :p Post your thoughts.

    my thoughts- what does kevlar do to help a phone?
    My answer to my thoughts- nothing, just makes it appear cooler to the public.

    Kevlar might prevent a bullet from passing through the phone, if thick enough. It would do nothing, though, to dampen the shock of impact, which would then cause your phone to fly into a million pieces.
