Not for me, but I do use a screen protector underneath and I heard that helps fill the "gap" and rid any rainbow effect, so I can't confirm otherwise.

Love the case. The only thing I don't like us that the sound quality isn't so great. Anyone consider taking off the dust protection tape? Other than that, the case is beautiful! I'll post pics soon.

Removed sticker where speaker is, sounds 10x better now. The only issue with the case is the speaker on top. They use black tape. When you remove the tape, you see that there are some areas where the light shines through. I'll add done tape tomorrow to fix that. All in all, it's still real nice. Pictures to follow..

I had some sound quality issues with calls. Where is this tape located? Do you have to unscrew the case to take it off or can you do it while its on? Thanks for the initial impressions and pictures

You need to take the case apart. When you look at the underside of the glass, you'll notice a piece of tape on the top where the speaker is. You can simply remove that tape and it will only make the speaker (headset) open to the front. Like I said, you will notice a few clear spots when you remove it, but you could always reattach a small amount of black electrical tape if you want. I have a black iphone, so it's not noticeable when the case is on. I have to say that once the tape was removed, the case is the best I've had to date and I have had all of them; lifeproof, element case, rokform, otterbox and speck. This is by far the best!!!

----------

If you look at my Pic 3, you want to remove the tape on the backside of the top speaker (headset).

Thanks for the info on timeframe
Awesome pics and thanks for the heads up about the tape.
I for one appreciate everyone's picture uploads and info on this thread. Mine has been in transit almost three working days now so Im hoping it gets over here to Toronto in that 6-7 day timeframe too.

Just a little rainbow. You can make it a little bit less by loosening up the screws on the sides. I will be trying an anti-glare (matte) screen protector. Right now I have a standard clear screen protector on. I believe that using the anti-glare will help. I will let you know...

Case is already falling a part. As you will see in my pics, if you take the case apart more than a few times, the female end of where the screws go in, have come off. This is not indicative of a quality case. I have requested a new case. I hope this doesn't happen for all of you but if you look at the pics, I don't know how it won't happen to the rest as the screw seats are not physically molded into the plastic body...

I'm sorry. They actually came off the top of the case. See pic. If you look at the others, they are barely attached.. Notice the 2 bottom ones are missing. I thought it was the female end, but after looking more closely, the top frame is made poorly!
