The Nokia battery cover is sleek with a matte finish, providing a good feel in the hands. This is perhaps the first mobile phone where fingerprints have not been a main issue. This is truly an excellent achievement by Nokia.
The back covering also has the lens cover which is as stylish as the slider itself, with no such issues as reported on the N97′s. Around the side of the lens wrap is the Active Kickstand which is very firm and sturdy. If you expected a frail bit of plastic you were wrong. Nevertheless, it does look quite long-lasting. Twitching the kick stand out will activate any application you want as it has an active sensor.
