Great lens!

It's good quality and it looks great!

Doesn’t fit

Was super excited to mod my old gbc and I just got done putting it all together with the new ips q5 display and shell and was disappointed that the screen doesn’t fit properly and sticks up on one side and corner. Pretty bummed.

Thanks for reaching out! This is an issue we see sometimes when products are combined for a build but are made by different suppliers. One supplier may have slightly different measurements for their products than another. Even a mm off in specs can cause noticeable issues such as this. Please reach out to us at support@handheldlegend.com - we can send you one replacement lens to see if perhaps the one you received was just milled incorrectly and may just be defective, instead of a incompatibility issue.

Creates a weird border

Doesn’t cover the entire screen, creates a weird border. Within the shell giving it a “frame within a frame” feeling.

Thanks for your review! The lens purchased here is a Q5 lens that is only meant to be paired with Q5 LCD kits. The Q5 LCD has a larger viewing window than other IPS mods and original LCD's. You are seeing that yellow shell boarder due to the fact that shells need to be modified in the first place to utilize the full viewing window of the Q5 LCD. Please reach out to us at support@handheldlegend.com and I'd be happy to point you in the direction of the lens needed for your current LCD.

Not fitting in

Didn't fit well on my Pokemon 'Game Boy Color IPS UV Printed Shell Only | IPS Modified'. Popped it off w/ a suction cup 2-3 times to get it as best I could but no amount of wrangling could get it to sit flush. Looks trivial but annoying, I guess make sure you go with the 'pairs well' section on that case's description page b/c this is the 4th screen I've bought from HHL and this is the only one I've had issues with.

I'm sorry to hear of the issue! Please message us at support@handheldlegend.com so we may get this resolved for you.


Couldn't imagine doing a screen upgrade without putting on a glass lens. These things are well made and install effortlessly.
