If you head over to Chinese websites like AliExpress or Gearbest, you will find plenty of useful and unique accessories for your iPhone. For iPhone 5s owners, one such particularly useful kit is the ”iPhone 7 mini” kit which transforms your handset into a mini iPhone 7.

These kits are usually available for anywhere between $25-$40 and transform your iPhone 5s to look like a matte black ‘iPhone 7 mini’. These kits are available in other colors as well if you are not particularly fond of black, including blue and red.

Installing the housing will take you around a couple of hours and various tools, but if you lack the expertise things can go wrong. However, as the photos posted by Reddit user “igenno” show, the end result surely would be beautiful.

As per the Reddit user, the iPhone 7 mini kit uses an aluminium that is very similar to the quality that Apple has used on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus and gives the phone a very sexy look. There is one caveat, though; the reception of the phone will degrade by at least 15-20 percent once you apply the kit on your iPhone 5s. The conversion kit also does not make use of a 2.5D curved glass which can make swiping from the edges a less than pleasant experience.

Since the iPhone 5s and iPhone SE share the same design and dimensions, similar kits are also available for the latter. If you are interested in such a kit for your iPhone 5s or iPhone SE, you can order one V.
