Okay shells, good color range

I mixed and matched two of these shells. They have a matte finish that isn't as premium-feeling as other brands, especially other glossy shells. The plastic is a little soft and doesn't seem super sturdy, but it's not terrible either. I had an issue with the hinge caps on the pink one - for some reason I just couldn't get the hinges in with them on. I switched to the blue caps and they went in perfectly. I do really like the color range that is available. I couldn't find a transparent/translucent hot pink shell anywhere else.

Great Shells

Great shells. Can’t be beat.

Awesome shell!

It looks so clean and the ips screen I bought fit like a glove 👍

Michael Shipman
Well made and good feel

Everything looks great, fitment is perfect with all buttons and screen. I have custom cut oem shells in the past and they are always a pain and never feel great. This was an easy drop in solution. Very happy with the purchase.

Don’t Buy!

I would look elsewhere for a shell or at least find different screws. Over half the screws included with this were stripped before I could **** them in all the way. So now my screen and board are stuck in a loosely closed shell and I’ve had no luck unscrewing them, so once I find a new shell, replacing it is going to be a nightmare. If you decide to buy this, go ahead and order new screws as well.

Thanks for your feedback! Please reach out to us at so we may look into this further with you!

Brittle plastic

After assembling the plastic around the hinges began to crack, and it likely won't be long until it is broken completely.

Thanks for your review! Usually this happens when the hinges were not inserted properly or were forced in too hard. Installing hinges can be a bit tricky. We have an article on our Wiki to help assist in a smooth install of the hinges:
