Forgive its SD450 and lack of usb c for that reason. The real deal is Galaxy A9 Star with SD660. Trust me, it is almost a flagship.

I've always appreciated Nokia (and moto for that matter) for the ability to change covers.
With current mobile trends you can just use stickers or cases/covers.
A case that changes the device from metal/plastic to glass is cool. As I get bigger options to customize my phone.
It is a shame that Samsung cannot offer their A series with USB-type C in 2018. Samsung is busy becoming a cheap brand and Huawei will dominate here in South Africa.
Bit of a shame to see how Samsung have diluted the A-series and what it stood for. Until the A6/A6+, we could assume that an A series phone meant:
a) Glass back
b) USB-C port
c) IP67 protection
d) Fast-charging support
In all, this led to the A series being seen as a midrange flagship.
But with these phones being very similar to the more budget-oriented J series, it's a shame they've been named in the A series.

Samsung is at a stand still at best while other manufacturers are paving the way in providing new features. MicroUSB should be obsolete in 2018. Shame!
geewaiho, 19 Jul 2018I really like the metal build of the a5Meant a6
Still, the display of the A6+ is much much better than the blue tint low quality display of Xiaomi and the same with Huawei (lower and mid range of course).

I appreciate your idea, and I'm not mocking others, just that I don't think your formula would work really good.
I simply can't understand how Samsung gets more out of it's battery than others???
Google pixel running stock Android and big 3520mah battery only gets 77 hours?? Then how can this happen
Is this black magic from Samsung????
Shanti Dope, 18 Jul 2018So I guess all you want is a back glass being covered in another tempered glass??
Well there ... moreDid you just not read that this allows the A6+ to have a glass back?
I'm aware of screen protectors, but you seriously need to read everything instead of focusing on mocking others' comments.
As for me, I like to be able to go plastic, metal, glass and even leather or wood if there were such cases/covers for my phone. I like changing minor things about my devices better than changing the device itself.

The idea is to be able to transform a metal phone like the A6+ here into a glass back. Or protecting the original back while keeping glass aesthetic.
Most glass backs could be replaced for around $40-70 and apple for about $300 and up, so a $20 case with broken glass could save some money and a visit to the service center.
The specs correspond with the ~$200 price range. Who would buy this for the price Samsung is asking?
If someone will buy this phone for me, I'll never ever use a case. That back design is cool enough to show off (with smudges XD).
I want to buy J6 but it not have great camera. I want to buy J8 but it does not FHD display and fast charging. I want to buy A6+ but it does not have fast battery charging. They force us to buy S9/S9+ but I don't have budget!
They intentionally bring technology step by step on capable chipset & make more money in long run.

I don't quite get your idea, but even if I do, I can tell myself that it ain't practical; if it is at all.
Protective cases are called protective cases for a reason of their own name.
