Forget the White iPhone 4… Here is the Blue iPhone 4

By , May 18, 2011

All this talk about the white iPhone 4 might have gotten you a little desensitized about it, no? Besides, why would you want a white iPhone 4 when you can have an even rarer deep blue iPhone 4?

As you probably have guessed by now, this is not an official color offered by Apple, but a conversion kit straight out of China. Not only this kit is original, I think it’s gorgeous as well, but it obviously depends on your tastes…

This kit contains the following:

  • Front panel with deep blue chassis (lens with digitizer, LCD display)
  • Back panel (back lens with camera lens, diffuser)
  • Home button

Since you’re going to have to change the LCD display, it’s probably suggested that not just anyone give this a try.

If you don’t like blue, check out this site. For about $150, you can get the same kit in various colors.

What do you think?

    No thanks. With my luck I’d fiddle with it and ruin my iPhone, then I’d be out of the $150 AND Apple won’t help me out so I’d be out of an iPhone, too!

    Would be nice if there was a better video actually showing you how do install the kit. Buy overall I think having a different color like this would awesome.

      Got to iFixIt they have really good step-by-step HowTos for disassembling and repairing iPhones.

        Agreed I have changed many 3GS cases with ifixit. I have an all White 3GS and a silver one.

    So fu****g nice!!!

    Does anyone know the quality of this? Primarily the screen I suppose…

      It’s pretty nice. Not OEM quality: No oleophobic coating, viewing angles aren’t as good.
      The touchscreen is just as responsive. I recommend purchasing a home-button ribbon from ebay first, as you will destroy the OEM home button when trying to replace with the blue one.

      I purchased this kit as a replacement for $50 on ebay after shattering my screen. I love it.

      The blue looks sick!

    typo in your second paragraph :)

  • Burge

  • minhaaj

  • SSV3NOM316

    Does any one know what theme that is?

    With the icons set close, and that interesting animation when swiping through springboard?

    • http://bayour.com Turbo Fredriksson

      What THAT what you picked up on!? :)

    • Eric

      The swipe animations is called barrel. It’s in Cydia. The grouping could be either gridlock or iconoclasm. Also Cydia

      • N1ghtW0lf

        you’re right about barrel but wrong about the gridlock or iconoclasm , its neither ,, its shrink from the same dev of barrel “the allmighty phoenix dev :D ” the guy makes AWESOME tweaks , take a look at music controls pro , google phoenix dev cydia

  • MALdito

    It looks awesome!!! At this point though, I’m just gonna wait for the next gen iPhone 5 (or 4S), and then hopefully they jump on that ‘bus’ and make color conversion kits for that one as well.

  • ddr

    That looks sooooo awesome!!

  • Ivor Biggun

    A blue phone, it looks absolute shit, how tacky !!

    • Ryan

      agreed. poopy color

  • Toad!

    Im worried its a scam webiste… :/ i mean its from china not to be racist but almost iphone color change from china were scams so untill proven otherwise i might stay away

  • Wirehedd

    I think it’s a bit of an overshare by the videographer to show that he has a tube of “lotion” on the desk near his computer as shown in the reflexion on the phone’s screen at the 2:37 mark of the video. Why would someone need anything like lubriderm at a computer desk? Hmmm. :)

    Aside from that, the kit looks great and I am now considering one myself.

    I wonder if the blue color affects the use of flash, like the original white iPhone?

    This is rather old. We do this in my shop all the time. Been doing it for 6 months at least. Blue pink red yellow

  • Dick Fontaine

    It’s looks nice enough on the video, but lots of things look nice enough until you see them in hand

  • Will

    Forget the blue one and specially the white one ! I got the red one ! Hehe. I ordered my kit from http://www.zeetron.com. And it’s legitimate . The parts feel oem . I’m happy with my red iPhone !

  • Bugizzle

    The site is legit. I order that exact same one and i ordered a pink one for my pink for my girl a few weeks ago…fits perfectly. Looks really orginal…The only thing is that it will cost u $30 for shipping…

  • CPAmember

    I have replaced the LCD screen on my 3Gs. And it turnedout to be way much harder then the video. So replacing the LCD just to change the colour of iPhone 4 is notworth it to me.

  • Bugizzle

    Replacing LCD on 3g or 3gs is way easier then the 4, but 4 is easy as well its just that theres more screws involve. Shouldn’t take no more then 15-20 mins!!!

  • John

    What is that theme????? its so nice!!

  • http://www.appulize.com Maciekish

    Actually, since the LCD is included you dont have to pry your old one from your old device, just lift away the entire front panel and drop in the replacement = easier.

  • Lynda

    pretty cool but why not just buy skinz instead – then you can change colors as your mood desires – my preference is Chromatics from Phantomskinz. I do like the transparent kits though!

  • Jips

    I’d love a blue iPhone since it’s my favorite color and unique… If it didn’t mean I’d have a big chance of messing up my warranty.

    • N1ghtW0lf

      not just a chance ,, but more like you are GUARANTEED TO mess up your warranty :) , do you think apple won’t know you lifted off the original digitizer and/or LCD , even if u replace the original b4 going to the store !! naahh dun think so :)

      • http://www.trenpennrepairs.com Jj

        Actually. They have no idea. I’ve changed mine from stock black to white then red the back to the original oem black. And they have no idea. I took it back and exchanged it cause the eat speaker started acting up. They gave me a brand new one with out so much as a second look.

  • MeMo

    Once they make those for the Verizon iPhone I will be ALL over it!

  • svnelvn

    are these oliophobic like the original plates? i don’t want any grippy screens

  • http://www.mod-gadget.com Albert

    Nice what he did, but the white iPhone looks better and the Black iPhone looks better than both.
