    Default Iphone 4 mid frame lacquered vs electroplated
    I think about changing my iphone 4s mid frame to either black or white, but im not sure whether to go with a electroplated or lacquered one.

    Anyone knows with which process the color wears off faster?

    I heard the electroplated mid frames have a much higher signal loss and i think white color cant be electroplated?

    I found this mid frames:
    ELECTROPLATED(black)
