I was being as gentle as possible, but if you learn how to solve the cube, then you'll be performing thousands of turns on it. Both the 3x3 and the 5x5 cubes seem to hold up a lot better than the 4x4.
I'm hoping I can find another manufacturer. I've played with 3x3 cubes from many manufacturers over the years, and some are obviously better-made and more durable than others. This isn't one of the good ones.
If you're going to make serious attempts at solving your 4x4, I recommend lubricating it with something. The cube-solving sites seem to recommend silicone spray (whatever that is). When I was in high school I'd take them apart and put vaseline in them, which smooths over the "catches" that happen as you turn rows that are slightly misaligned, and also has a slightly glue-y effect that holds it together better.
I am only writing this so you don't make the mistake I made.. I did not listen to the reviews here either
Now, about the quality of this particular cube. My problem is with the stickers. The internal mechanism, a sphere, is fine. The physical construction of this thing is great. It moves well, and is very sturdy. But the stickers are not durable. Within three days, they began to peel. I then decided to take a risk, and customize it. I took it apart, and painted each piece individually with epoxy, then I scraped the excess epoxy off the insides of each individual piece once it dried. I then lubed it with WD40 and Vaseline, while putting it back together. The result, a professional looking and moving cube. It took a lot of time, but I think it was worth it. However, that amount of work would not be necessary if Rubik's were to spend about 5 cents more on each cube and get better stickers. The quality of the stickers deduct two stars from this otherwise five star cube.
I would recomend that you look at other brands for you 4x4, like Eastsheen, or maybe a tiled cube. Or, you could purchase better stickers for about a dollar and put them on yourself as soon as you get this cube. Or you could turn it into a frankencube as I have done with mine. But except for the poor stickers, this is a great cube, very chalenging and fun, and anyone will enjoy it.

My son was so excited to receive this for his birthday. He opened it on Saturday and on Monday it fell apart as he was twisting it around attempting to solve it. Read morePublished 12 days ago by L. Hatfield
Broke within 4 days. A piece popped out while turning the cube. Very poorly made.Published 22 days ago by Angie
Fell apart withing first usage. Customer service is horrible. Not a true Rubik's Cube. It's a knock off being sold as an original Rubiks. Definitely theft by deception.Published 23 days ago by Amazon Customer
One of the pieces popped out during the first day it was being used.Published 26 days ago by Maggie
not even a minute out of the packaging and a piece pops off. Now the puzzle isn't to solve the cube but to make sure we get the pieces back together.Published 2 months ago by Andrea P.
