    All this effort but the phone doesn't look like a iPhone 12 Pro Max 😂. I think with a flat screen replacement this would have worked perfect. BTW insane attention to details. Thumbs Up from me 👍

    Hope Hugh can also show us how to modify a Galaxy Note10+ to become S21 Ultra or even a Note 20 Ultra (not necessarily has to switch the S-Pen Slot to the left like the real deal Note20 Ultra but just to make it look and feel like a Note20 Ultra).

    It's way time America and Europe cracked down on Apple who make it so dificult to replace broken parts in the phones. The fact they don't crack down on them makes you wonder who's side they are on!

    It almost looks like every part is designed by different mechanical engineer and electronic designers have to work around it. So overcomplicated for no reason in certain ways like some cars that are not designed for repair or even maintenance items

    Wow society has reached a new level of pretentiousness with housing old iPhones with what seems to be a newer model. Also, this scares me since one could be purchasing the latest iPhone but getting an older generation instead
