    Default Flat Black or white iPhone (sanding)

    Searched, but didn't find anything on this... I ended up wet-sanding my phone with 1000 grit (very little water obviously). I just left it alone after that. Nice flat-black smooth texture to it now, way better than how it was before. Sanding the chrome gives it a brushed stainless steel look. Sanding it like this will not remove any of the writing on the back case (model #, etc...). it just scuffs up the gloss topcoat.

    In the past 2 days I've done a few phones for other people after they've seen mine and wanted the same, so thought I'd share.

    if you do it, don't sand the camera lens or the touchscreen (obviously). Sorry for the shitty pic, it was taken with another phone.

    Dude, take a better pic with a real camera. I may want to do this to mine because the fingerprints on the back are annoying.

    Thanks

    Or you could just dip your phone in Matt black paint
