I frequently changed the back panel of my iPhone 4 when I had it (you can see my review of the most expensive replacement back I tried, the Mas Design titanium back, here) but I haven’t been as adventurous with my iPhone 4S for some unknown reason. However, that is going to change soon since I saw this beauty from K.O. Gadget yesterday and placed an order (click on the image on the left, courtesy of K.O. Gadget, to see a larger version).
K.O. Gadget is only offering it up for sale for a short period to evade an inevitable cease and desist order from Apple because of the unauthorized use of the company’s logo. As I write this post, it will only be available for sale for about one day and eight hours more.
I don’t doubt that Apple protects their logo aggressively but this still feels like a bit of a marketing ploy to encourage sales. Regardless, I ordered one. And, I also ordered the light mod kit with it. I’m not quite sure if I’ll be brave enough to install it since it requires opening up my iPhone and connecting some additional wires to power the light, which will most definitely void its warranty. However, K.O. Gadget is claiming that this new and improved light mod kit is better than the first one they released late last year which earned some bad reviews.
It will take around three weeks before everything arrives but I’ll post about it once I’ve got installed and have had a little time to use it.
