Okay, seriously? This is the most excited I’ve been about a thing since I got my iPhone 4. How AWESOME is this rear panel? No more carrying a mirror. No more wondering if I have something in my teeth. Spying on people beind me? Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.
I need to know two things from you: 1) How BALLER is this? 2) Is this something you’d consider using?
Perhaps before you can answer number 2, you need to know what, exactly it is. It is a replacement rear-panel for my iPhone 4, except it’s mirrored instead of black. So basically, you take off the old panel, put on the new one and…..well, that’s it, you’re done!
Here’s a video I did where I show you how to switch the backs. Basically it’s four steps: 1) remove two screws, 2) slide back off of phone 3) slide new back onto phone, 4) put screws back in. But here’s the video, just in case (please excuse my ill-advised bangs):
So whaddaya say? You likey? While I’m not getting compensated for this post, I do work for iFixit, and I did get this panel for freesies. I’m testing it out to see how well it wears, and doing some very casual, not-at-all-scientific, totally unmeasurable market-research to gauge interest in the mirrored rear panel. Personally? I’m in love. (And NOT just because I’m vain.)
