Welcome to our Consumer Lab page. While you will find many mobile research surveys kicked off by our teams, you will also find polls and discussions created by fellow members.
You're invited to complete any surveys that are still open and by all means create a poll if it relates to general mobile preferences. If your topic only pertains to one product, please create your poll within the respective product forum.
After a period of time Consumer Lab Polls, Surveys & Discussions will be locked. They will still be viewable for historical data.

Everyone's got different taste in a phone's backside - some like it smooth, some like it grippy, and some like it rounded. For those who have their minds in the gutter, let's get back to business and talk about what makes up the perfect backside of your smartphone!
Here are a few parameters to think through:
There are many more to be listed, but this is a good start. Here's your challenge: explain what type of ideal backside you want in a smartphone. Feel free to use analogies, examples of existing devices in the market, examples of other physical products that people are generally familiar with, etc.
Here's an example of my personal taste. Personally, I don't like my backsides shiny and glossy, as this tends to pick up fingerprints too easily. I also like a medium grippy texture so that the phone doesn't slip out of my hands unexpectedly. That said, I don't like it too rubbery either, where it's difficult to move in and out of your pockets. Regarding shape, I like it slightly contoured so that it feels more natural in the hands, conforming to the natural curves of your hands or face or even pockets.
So...community, what do you have to say about your ideal backside?
