I've been a Note user since the beginning. I now have the faux note s23 ultra 1tb why is the back plastic. I spent 1700 usd for a premium device that feels cheap. Will the glass back make a come back?

@Noni45 It isn't plastic. The back of the S23 Ultra is Gorilla Glass Victus 2.

It's matte finish gorila glass victus 2. If you don't believe that it's a glass, just drop it on a cement.Screenshot_20230312_144845_Shop Samsung_1000004538_1678646925.jpg

I , personally, would prefer a back made out of a material that is not super slippery matt finish glass.  I prefer to not have to squeeze my device for dear life just to keep it from sliding out of my hand.  I put a silicone case on my S22 Ultra (which is what I have, BTW, and had to argue with people there as well that the back is glass, and not plastic) just to keep it from sliding out of my hand.  I also got a clear case to show off the fact that I got the exclusive "red" variant, but it is slippery too, so went back to black silicone!

@usermzeJaY3BsM My hands are always dry so phones are very slippery in my hands. The solution I have found is Dragon grips. You can find it on Amazon in different color and sizes. I place some pieces in key places on my phone to keep it from slipping out of my hand. I use this on my clear case so I can highlight my Lime green S23U. Also works great on the edges of the Fold to provide an easy grip for opening the phone. 

[Edited spelling: Dragon grips, not Drag grips]

Thanks for the pro tip, that sounds awesome!  My clear case has a kickstand too, so I would prefer using it, now I just might be able to!
