Modded My iPhone 5 To Be Wht & blk (updated variations) [murged]

After posting my last video I had a lot of requests for other color variations like Black screen with a white body and black buttons etc... Here they are. Let me know what your favs are or if you think it's best to keep them the way they are.



Old thread first video

While all of you were discussing the perks and drawbacks of white/black iPhone 5's I was busy making a white and black iPhone 5, the best of both worlds. What do you think?

Wow, the dismantling part look quite difficult and looks like you spent quite some time on it.

I like the color of the white aluminium and black glass. Gives a nice feel. If only Apple sells one of these. You consider helping people to mod their iPhones?

I do help people locally to mod their phones. I this is the first iPhone 5 mod. People are concerned about their warranties so it's not typical to start doing mods for several months after a release of a phone.

Nice work, I actually think many people would have taken a "black" iPhone 5 with the bare aluminium casework as you've partly done here, I know it's what I wanted. I would have just gone the whole way with the front glass panel too.

thanks man. I have the front glass if I ever decide to go with an all black front panel. I just didn't want to go too overboard with the black.

Yeah, I know what you mean I usually prefer black on the front as it's less distracting from the screen but the overall "stealth" design on the iPhone 5 is a bit too bare for me. I definitely prefer the look of the white.

I had a similar problem designing some speakers recently which were all black and uninteresting so I mixed gloss lacquer with rubber front and just a little steel trim to liven it up a bit! These

The phone looks amazing in the back, but personally I would have kept a white home button for the phone, haha. Regardless, it looks pretty nice.

So you should also have a black & white iPhone to go with your white & black one? I'd like to see that one too.

I've always appreciated the subtle yet aggressive look of white with black details. Not a huge fan of white and chrome. But that's what modding is all about... making it look however makes you happy.

Yeah the normal black and white look great... I love them both. But I also love unique and tearing things apart.

Very nice.

Much better than years ago when people started showing off their red iPhone4's.

Thanks, I actually really liked the red iPhone 4's over most the other colors. The worst in my opinion, I have had a few people request hunting camo. As if it will somehow make it less visible to deer when you are hunting talking on the phone...

Wow no way I could have had the patients and ability to do that without a lot of "coffee" lol.

Looks nice, the only thing I dislike is the black home button. Looks a bit awkward.

Looks better than I expected. I like how the power and volume buttons are still black. Have you considered making a white one with the slate antenna band and back?

There are plenty of iPhone 5 mods, slightly less subtle than this but they're out there nonetheless.

Good job but kinda fugly IMHO. IF you would of left the white body and simply swapped front and back glass that would look good.

If the OP can dismantle a 5 like that, maybe if he's short on work Foxconn would hire him? I don't much care for the colour though...just personal taste I guess.
