To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
It came in perfect shape, not broken or anything. But the magnifying side of the mirror is very difficult to use. You have to hold your face 1-2inches away from the mirror, or everything is upside down. Therefore, it's not very useful because the mirror is so close to your face.
Everything about the mirror, shipping time, packaging, appearance, added touches like a cloth wipe and tweezers was a nice touch. My only disappointment was that it did not meet my expectations of a 20X mirror. I have a 20X in a different model and the magnification was completely different.
This is my first Amazon review, even though I’m a diehard Amazon customer. I just had to let the world know that after buying 2 of these mirrors over a 2-month period, I’m convinced that the plastic bending hinge that enables the mirror to stand is not at all durable. It breaks off even with gentle usage and then the mirror becomes a useless handheld mirror. Save your money and find a folding mirror with a metal stand rather than plastic. I ended up buying the standing mirror on Amazon which is 2-sided but doesn’t collapse. It’s lighted and won’t break. I love it but you have to have room for it.
