Two of our most popular how-to posts revolve around replacing the standard back cover of the iPhone 4S with more stylish (or at least more unique) offerings to distinguish ourselves from the crowds. Though we like brushed metal and colorful options, we think there's an even more stylish option out there being offered by LEAF, with their metal

Super thin and all-metal, these textured back covers are so super thin, you can even add an Apple designed bumper design around it without trouble (as shown above), since the LEAF covers are machined to fit exactly over the back. The nice thing about this option opposed to replacing the back in DIY style is these four metal back skins work as stickers, rather than actual physical replacements. No tools required except a steady hand and clean surface.

Prices range from $24.95 up to $79.95 for a limited edition 24K gold-plated metal skin edition, just in case your name is Kanye or Trump.


You might want to put this video on mute before watching, but this video from greatwhitegear.com does a good job of showing the process of applying the LEAF.
