Agreed about aftermarket parts.

However, I have no plans to 'fix' it being green/black...it's now the best looking ZVM as far as I'm concerned :)

No case could have prevented this failure. 100%...

Unfortunately I'm still living in the era of coax, RCA and VGA connectors, so until/unless I visit someone with an HDMI display, I can't really comment lol. I'll make an effort to, though.

Thanks Olley. Yeah, I figured 'handle with care' would apply to the kickstand. I can definitely see the utility in it, but it does seem breakable easily.

Li-Ion batteries are known for changing size and form, slightly, during charge/discharge. That said, the sort of experience you had seems unusual. Exactly how bloated did it become?
