Once they are modified they will. She will post pics. It takes a little time but well worth the effort...

Check back on this thread for older posts. You can see how I and others modded these cases to make them bumpers only that are indeed compatible with mods. I use mine with my mophie battery pack everyday. Then I swap it for my speaker mod when I want to. And I have the nice camera mod too when I would like to use it as well. It does take some work to modify it, but I am very pleased with the results!

Here is the case I ordered! I figured out how to copy the link. I got solid pink. It also comes in solid navy blue and solid black. But there is a purple speckled one out there also that I saw if you search “Moto z4 bumper” on eBay.

I'm buying the aluminum one and will test it out - see how much it affects the antennas.

Can anyone do a video of the modding process? Want to make sure I don't screw it up too bad...

Let us know how it works! I really hope it works well for you! It would be less work for sure! I have only heard bad about them so it would be cool if they have improved with this new Z4 model!

 

I'm still happy with mine. But out of curiosity, since the Z4 aluminum bumper has no reviews yet, I searched for the same brand/manufacturer in the Z2 or the Z2 Force aluminum bumper. Can't recall which exact model. 

 

Anyway, it has 145 reviews and 2.9 out of 5 stars. 

 

Also, here is a picture of words that came up in the reviews or something like that. Makes me nervous to try one even if mine went bad somehow. I hope these aluminum ones have improved with this new model for the Z4!

Can videos that are minutes long be posted on this thread? I'm unsure. I can sure take a video or several short ones of the process, but I don't know if it will let me post it on this thread. It's not a difficult process. But I understand wanting to see the process in video format. I'm definitely a more visual learner too.

 

Anyone know about video posting?

I ordered on as well. I had one for my Z2 and it had two issues. First was the phone antenna was partially obstructed. Weak reception areas became no reception areas. The second was cosmetic. The finish was easilly damaged revealing the raw aluminum underneath. This time I ordered the silver one. My reveiw will follow. Should have it in a week.

Ok. I can try maybe. I’ve never done a YouTube video before and I don’t have an account for YouTube. Plus I’d need my husband home to hold the phone up or something? (He works different hours)

 

I did get this nifty phone stand though on Amazon on Prime day so that possibly could work though for taking a video! No promises, but I can try to do my best if you guys are wanting a video of the process!
