I bought the shell together with a IPS LCD V4 in order to avoid trimming anything.
First thing, ISP is bigger than the screen hole, so you need to trim it.
Then the power led is misaligned with the shell and screen lens holes.
What annoyed me the most is that the A and B buttons are bigger than the shell holes, this means, when you press them, they don't come back to it's original position.
First off lets get this out of the way, THESE ARE WHITE SHELLS THAT HAVE BEEN PAINTED. Second, the paint finishes such as (matte, gloss, pearlescent, etc.) vary from color to color. I bought one pearl blue and one pearl red and the difference is night and day when it comes to the finish, they shouldnt even be listed as the same product. At first I was a little shocked that they were even painted since it was not mentioned in the product description. This could be a problem down the line since a painted shell could easily chip off and leave an undesired white mark beneath it so scratches will be more noticeable than with a solid colored plastic shell. The pearl blue looks close to the picture almost like a metallic blue but the red is where they really messed up it should be called "matte red" not "pearl red" since there is nothing pearlescent about it, I reached out to customer care and no efforts were made to correct the situation Chris just told me that yes this is infact how they are supposed to look and that matte and pearl are categorized as the same in their products, which is even more surprising cuz.. i mean just look at the picture, how can you call these both "pearl" blue/red when they are two completelydifferent things? I have nothing against a matte finish i might even prefer it at times but how is anyone supposed to know thats what they are getting when its listed as "pearl red"
Shell looked awesome but the Buttons didn’t fit and got stuck when pressed.
Love the shell!
Don’t hesitate to get this thing. It’s dope.
