Even though i try to keep my iPhones as good as new the time came when my brother managed to break the back cover of the device. Now what i want from you is to tell me if i perchase an OEM back cover (this) will the cover be thicker or have any minor difference from the one we have on our devices ?
thanks

Well no apple store where i live so no any other option..actually this back was always a problem-.- even from the beginning the cover didnt make a good contact with the stainless steel.you could very well see through xd

i will buy this. Hope it is like the original one (no thicker,cheaper material etc)
the inside of that back cover does not look right to me =/

I am pretty sure it is literally just a flat back with a circle for the camera, not that jigsaw looking thing in the picture

oh you know what....I thought it was a 4S and i think that looks totally different. Maybe I am just crazy and didn't pay attention when I was replacing it haha.
That must be why then :p The 4S seems to be a lot lighter coloured with less holes.

Just FYI to whoever wants to know, here is the 4S backplate:

Looks to be the same, I have used oem and other back plates. I understand you want piece of mind. Order it and make sure you get the write screwdriver for your iPhone.

thanks everyone for your replies. I do have a screwdriver cause i replaced my home button a few weeks ago. The only thing i want from this product is to not be thicker like i previously read. Because i have some cases that won't fit it if the phone gets fatter lol
