    One of the biggest issues I have with the hardware of the BlackBerry Z30 is the silver "chin" it sports on the bottom.

    Some users complain that it's not visually balanced like the Z10 was. I however dislike the easily scratched material.

    I found myself in possession of some "sticker" carbon fiber material - and I put it to cosmetic use.

    I attached some pictures.

    This allows a balanced look, while protecting the seemingly most vulnerable area of the phone.

    If you want to make yours look the same, check out this link - DIY 12"X50" 30x127cm 3D Texture Carbon Fiber Wrap Vinyl Decal CAR Sticker Sheet | eBay
    $3.77 CAD for 12"x 50" "Black Carbon Fiber Vinyl"

    Let me know if you like it as much as I do.

    Wow, all it needed was a bit of the similarly-looking back cover material.

    Where did you get the "carbon" fiber sticker?

    This just show how different people are,... I like the silver color - much better than a dark one... also makes it easier to quickly see which side is up/down on the phone at night...

    I simply placed the sticker, with no wrap around. What's covered on mine is essentially the only trouble area I have.

    Others may wish to cover the entire outer side, however I ran out of Vinyl lol

    "Some users complain that it's not visually balanced like the Z10 was. I however dislike the easily scratched material." - OP

    This is completely subjective, as is your comment.

    I personally don't have a problem with the silver but that carbon strip makes it look better to me.

    Looks cool but I prefer the silver. A month of use, no case, still cherry. Doesn't seem too easy to scratch to me. I was only able to scratch the back with a diamond, by the way, but didn't want to take a chance on scuffing up the front by trying with different materials like I did on the back.
