    Default My Iphone 4 Housing From Ebay
    I bought this housing from ebay and took about 10 days to receive it from hong kong. I paid about about $25 shipped. It comes in purple, white, pink, black, yellow, blue, orange. Loooks and feels very nice but the quality its not OEM. It is plastic, its basically like 3g and 3gs housing, they are good but not OEM quality. Obviously the replacing part is easy. Just rem€ove the two bottom screws and thats it. I have posted some pictures as well as video on youtube. In my option its well worth the money.

    HERE IS THE VIDEO AND PICTURES

    It may not be OEM quality, but if you drop it and break it, at least your nice and expensive OEM one is at home safe.

    Does it have the oem camera ring on it? I have heard some replacement covers dont work that well and causes light distortion on pics.

    I bet the packaging and the costs to ship this are more then the cost of the cover itself

    Still a sweet looking cover!!
    Also like to know about the camera question.

    Sorry for late reply but yea you gonna have problems with camera if you use flash because it doesn't have led diffuser...even people who spent $200 for so called oem housing still deal with this problem...bottom line is if it's not from apple Then you will most likely have problem...in my case i don't use flash much so no big deal for me..

    Could you post some pictures taken with the flash on? I'm tempted to do this but would like to see how the pictures come out to see if I could live with it.
