    I might have to replace the housing for a used Q10 and want to know if there are others that have done the same and could speak to the quality of the replacement materials.

    Was the replacement frame metal like OEM? Or plastic? (it's hard to find that information)

    Were the back pieces the OEM glass weave? Or something else?

    Was there a quality difference with the OEM keyboard and replacement?

    Was thinking of replacing the black frame with the silver/stainless frame but I read that all of that color are plastic. Is that true?

    Thanks for the replies!

    That's the review that made me post the question on the forums whether or not all replacement parts are plastic or not

    The black replacement part is indeed made from metal....

    The silver replacement part is plastic that has been spray painted...

    The keyboard should be similar although there might be a difference in "shine".... I've bought about 4 keyboards and they were slightly different in shiny-ness....

    One thing to consider... the middle plastic frame holds the speakers... I've bought several where the sound is distorted... rattling at higher volumes... so make sure to set your volume to max when you put the phone back together

    Thanks for the DIY tip, if the frame is that bad I'm strongly considering to do the stainless frame on the black weave backing

    Its not plastic. Its metal too. Only the piece near the keyboard is painted plastic. Its in the black Q10 the same.
