Parts Origin - OEM
The term OEM stands for 'Original Equipment Manufacturer', the exact meaning differs in several industries.
To us, OEM means that the part is the same part used within your device, using the same materials and specifications.
We use the term OEM to cover many parts from refurbished, used and new components, the exact condition will be stated in the items description.
In some cases when the part supplied is made up to several components (for example an LCD assembly) the part may have been assembled by a 3rd party vendor using OEM parts meaning that consumable may differ (such as adhesive used)
Although strict testing procedures are put in place to ensure the quality of the part these testing practices and procedures may differ from the checks manufacturers use.
Any hardware supplied as OEM will not have any quality loss or loss of features and covered under our extensive returns policy.
As in many cases we dont obtain directly from the devices manufacturer, nor in some cases are we affiliated with device manufacturer in any way and they are not involved in the testing or sales process of the component we sell.
The product was easy to fit, and I was very pleased with how it looked (just like the original). However, after a couple of days (despite fitting it correctly), the plate started to lift at the corner. I heated it up again to try to make the adhesive stickier and re-pressed the back down, but it continued to lift. After emailing the customer service team, we concluded that it was just a bad adhesive on this specific sheet, and they posted me a new adhesive sheet as well as a tube of adhesive to re-secure my phone back free of charge. An excellent example of great customer service. Many companies could learn a thing or two from you. Thank you very much to Mike H.
This is the business. Perfect OEM replacement. Easy to fit too. I used a heatgun on low heat setting and two G clamps and foam matting to clamp the back to the phone. You need to heat the adhesive to get the best bond. I left it clamped like this for about 15 minutes. Job done and passed the pressure test (use service engineers menu to test pressure to make sure you preserve the waterproofing after replacing the back)
Comes as described with a glass back plate and adhesive strip. Highly recommend using guitar picks for removal of the old plate. 1mm's work well. The actual replacement is a simple swap & slot. Just peel off what's left of original glue and don't smudge anything over the camera lens. "Replace Base" stickers which the rear plate comes with can take some persuasion to take off, but warm water and soap will make sure you'll leave no marks. Overall, a good purchase.
Back cover seems identical to the old one. Delivery was spot on. Surprisingly easy to remove the old cover using the hairdryer and suction cup method, the fit the new one. Great result, i'm very pleased.
Ordered this with standard delivery and received it the very next day, perfect look and quality and took me about 10 minutes to do, well worth the money P.s I even mistakenly ordered the standard z3 instead of the compact version and was fully refunded straight away even though it was completely my fault, I would definitely recommend anyone with a cracked rear casing to just buy one and do it yourself, so easy!
Bought this as I smashed my glass, this was soo simple to do took me 5 mins to do. And I'm female so you guys out should do it in like 7 lol great quality product
The quality of this product is great. I don't know if it is a manufacturers original part, but visually one cannot tell the difference. Installation is extremely easy. the most difficult part being removing the old back as mine was totally smashed so came off in lots of little pieces. The whole process took less than 20 minutes. Much quicker and cheaper than going to a phone shop so I am very happy. Very quick delivery and well packaged.
