    some notes:
    1. the water indicator is very fragile. imagine an old sticker that's been dehydrated (crispy and breaks if you touch it). mine was demolished.
    2. truesupplier top cover is very POOR QUALITY. you can see this in the pictures
    3. attaching the top and frame isn't hard, but i'm assuming they weren't cut correctly because it was impossible to attach without the gaps.
    4. the chrome on my old phone was already peeling (near the lock key button). so if this peels, i don't really care.
    5. i chose not to get the metal battery cover because i did not want my reception diminished.

    Looks good! I see it has the same gap on the top cover as mine has. You are right, the frame and battery door are nice, but the top cover electroplating is crap and it doesn't fit worth sheeeet. You have to watch the edges too, the fake electroplating is SHARP and peels off the top cover if you pick at the edges. I guess it's a fact we have to live with if we order parts from China.

    I got the same kit, but green. The electroplate battery door is still plastic, so you could have ordered one of those too.

    thanks. i definitely did not know that, although i do like the leather anyway.

    maybe when sw-box or cnn carries chrome housings, i'll pick up a new one.

    That's the first time I actually like the use of the mirror screen protector.

    That looks good, but the top cover and bezel gaps are bad but then again we are talking about non oem parts which can be hit or miss. I reused my top cover and thank God the bezel matched the oem top cover perfectly and no crazy gaps.

    I like it...but I'm such an antismudge person, it seems like this would require obsessive wiping and buffing. LOL
