corner is not bent lol just the standard plastic it came with. also there is pixel on the screen that is blue, not noticeable unless your on a black screen.

as you can see a bit of scuff marks on left side. and i had no magnetic screwdriver so i spent a good hour trying to put those tiny corner screws in and i failed.
and u can see the back cover screw is missing as well. but its really not that noticeable. just put a bumper on it and is good as new.
took me like 3+ hours since i noticed i folded the lcd cable in half when i went to connect it to the mobo. had to undo everything. same thing happened again but with the antenna cable that is on the speaker dock. also i took out all the side screws for the metal frame. so i leanred my mistakes. need a magetic screwdriver for sure. and i already ordered 3 more white sets for cheap.

just rub a screwdriver on a strong magnet and it will be magnetized.

As crthnsn says ----
However, you don't need a strong magnet, any magnet will work. You are just polarizing the atoms of the screwdriver towards the tip. Just slide magnet along metal of screwdriver from handle end, and slide it off the very tip in one smooth motion. Repeating this will strengthen the magnetic pull of the screwdriver somewhat. It will usually last a long time, probably months. If you want to undo, just slide magnet the other way.
Now every screwdriver in your toolbox is a magnetic screwdriver.
