Hello all, I just got few MI3 from *******.com for 290usd per piece. Unfortunately my phone drops down on the ground today. So I disassemble it and I was surprised by cheap plastic back cover.

What do u think about it? Made xiaomi special cheap version for 50% discount sale?? Can somebody, who buy mi3 for normal price, confirm aluminum/magnesium back cover?

I am litte confused about it.

Framework!
Its not a back cover. It's the inner magnesium frame. The back cover is only hardened plastic.

Try searching on ******* or **********. But this part is not mentioned to be changed. So its a spare part used to be changed through service.
