    Just got it delivered today, applying a death grip only drops my 3g by one bar but it quickly recovers, w/o it goes to searching.

    There is a 25% off coupon for their site = SFD822TP

    * I'm not affiliated with speck etc.... But I have used the same type of case on my 3g and 3gs*

    How tight is the fit on the PixelSkin? I have one coming tomorrow.

    Does this case impact the flash - creating white out photos?

    "Not Available" : I get the add to cart button when I visit the product page.

    "How is the fit?" : Nice and snug, it fits the straight edges of the iPhone 4 real nice.

    "White out Pics?" : I didn't notice any abnormalities compared to using the flash w/o the case.

    I ordered 2 day shipping and got it next day, In my area "Chicago Land" finding a decent case at a B/M store is next to impossible.

    Only the black is currently in stock. Maybe that's the issue above.

    Glad to hear it's a good fit. Looking forward to trying it out.

    The best test is to go into a completely dark room and take flash photos with and without the case. The original CandyShells had major issues and they are redesigning them.

    Can you take photos of (NOT with) the phone with the case on it? I want to see how it looks. Speck is sending me a pixel skin to hold me over until my Candyshell replacement comes in a few weeks.

    Confirming only black is in stock atm.

    **Sorry my bathroom was the only room dark enough to test the flash, I know I need a tub of oxiclean**

    Looks like there's no glare as far as my eyes can see. It's weird they are different tinges of color though. Probably from looking at it at different angles.

    Without the case, looks kinda yellow haha.

    Can you take photos of the phone with the case on it?

    It's interesting that you'll get less green tint WITH case.

    I hope this case can be used with SGP protection kit including the sides. I want to go naked for daily use but need a good silicone skin for weekend activities.

    Hey, would you be kind enough to post a couple more pics of flash/noflash, preferably of something else other than this setting? This looks like a nice case and probably the only good one out for now, if it indeed has no flash issues.

    I have a pixelskin for my 3G and I love it. It feels strong enough to survive a fall and it feel like it won't slip from my hand. Is the i4 version tat way? Any pics of the phone with the case?
