The concept of unoriginality will inevitably cause an unhealthy smirk on the face of even an ordinary user, to say nothing of the true genuine disgust of a pedantic perfectionist. Nevertheless, the modern “devil is not as terrible as he is painted” – high-quality replicas have every right to exist. This is especially true in cases where there is no original alternative that almost all users of Apple’s mobile electronics have encountered. In this article, all points will be placed above the “i” for those who have decided to replace the “native” case of their iPhone 6 with color — pitfalls and possible problems.
So what is the difference between the original case of the iPhone 6 and the non-original?

General appearance from the outside
The overall appearance of the original case for the iPhone 6 and the non-original outside is almost identical. In the second case, the plastic separating the antenna blocks in the presented case is black, however, it can be white – as on the original silver case. The joint of plastic and aluminum is pleasant to the touch. Finding the difference between the original case of the iPhone 6 and the non-original will be very difficult.
General appearance inside
In the inside of the non-original case for the iPhone 6, hidden from the user’s eyes, the differences are much more noticeable. An experienced craftsman will immediately notice a slightly carelessly filled plastic and the difference in the operation of the CNC machine. Nevertheless, these visual differences will certainly not affect the operation of the device as a whole – you can be sure of this.
Shiny border – facet – on speaker and microphone holes
On closer inspection, you can pay attention that, unlike the original iPhone 6 case, in the non-original there are no shiny edges – facets – on the holes of the speakers and microphone.
In the non-original case for the iPhone 6 there are no foam rubber seals, including one that protects the camera from dust. All of them are transferred by an experienced craftsman from the original case when replacing. The flash in a colored body in Chinese is fixed to a couple of glue points.
The holes for the buttons and the SIM card holder in the non-original case for the iPhone 6 are made almost perfectly, including facets. The buttons in them move as smoothly and pleasantly as possible – that is why you can hear the very “right” click.
The Apple logo is the most significant difference between the non-original iPhone 6 case and the original one – it can sink a little or stick out above the surface. Such defects are as much as possible corrected by the masters of EtoServis when replacing them. For many years of work of the specialists of our service center, the logo perfectly made by the Chinese has not yet been met – an exception may be only the products of the Foxconn factory, whose employees are engaged in the production of all components for the iPhone. Nevertheless, it should be noted that in the original cases for the iPhone 6 there are often such defects that can be considered the norm for such a technology for fixing the logo in the case.
The inscriptions at the bottom of the non-original case for the iPhone 6 are made similar to the original solution – they are made with a laser and contain a phone, which, of course, differs from the user. The biggest difference in the execution of the inscriptions is the font used.
At the camera hole in the non-original case for iPhone 6 there is the necessary facet, but it differs from the original color solution. There is no oleophobic coating on the glass used to protect the camera, so you will have to wipe it more often.
The dimensions of the non-original iPhone 6 case repeat the original solution by 99.98%, which is its undoubted advantage. The width of the color body is 67.012 mm – the difference reaches a negligible value of 0.017%. The thickness of aluminum is 0.7 mm – there is no difference at all, so the non-original case has the same strength and rigidity.
Thus, non-original colored cases for iPhone 6, which are used by our company’s specialists to replace them, do not have significant differences and are suitable for use – compared to the original ones, they can be rated at 8/10. However, it should be noted that non-original cases may vary significantly, depending on the manufacturer. All factory cases for replacement are meticulously checked by the employees of our service. Of the last batch received in 100 pieces, 79 were sent back – the rest were as close to the original as possible.
