I don't know if this will help anyone, but I'd been wanting to make my black aws model into a white one for quite a while, now that I'd found a place that supplies them I wanted to share it with the rest of our community. Will report back on how it goes and quality of pieces once I get them.

If you're taking apart yours to swap bodies, you should try and see if there's any visual differences.

The site you linked to had 'OEM' docks but the pictured ones are just cheap generic ones and not actual OEM ones.
(They're also priced as cheap generic docks, it could simply be they're labeled incorrectly, but still)

Hopefully what you ordered is the real thing and not a copy.

will do, currently I have a black aws model and white att one so I'll have the actual dell one to compare quality with.

and yes the docks seem to be cheap generic stuff.

I would think no since they have a listing for white buttons as well, I ordered those as well as the back and battery cover.

Hmm, but they only offer 'white' (even though the pictured ones are black), each color also has matching colored buttons(?)

On a side note you can almost completely refurbish a S5 for ~$150, the only things missing are the mobo, the bezel side bumpers (the shiny plastic part) and some minor internal pieces.

Yeah I'd noticed their picture is of black ones, I'd emailed them and they assured me the buttons would be white in color. I think getting a new board to do a full refurb would be a bit difficult considering that its an aws model and last time i spoke with dell they denied its existence plus i just want a white aws streak....

I was speaking hypothetically in regards to the refurbing, it's likely easier to get a donor mobo to refurb around instead of doing a full refurb with 'new' parts.

They dont offer black or red buttons though? They offer black and red bodies but not the buttons.

Wonder how hard it would be to get a purple one, purples ones existed for prototype streaks.
