    Here you go guys, just a few shots of the case. I picked it up just now from best buy for $24.99. Total of $26.74 with tax here in florida. My overall feeling of it is that it feels and looks great. The buttons are a bit hard to press but doesn't bother me much at all now. I am waiting for a good screen protector to come out before I put one on. The back as you can see is sort of a frost appearance as previously mentioned in another review which I think seems to look quite nice.

    *Update - Scroll down to view more pictures. It appears when taking a wide picture under low light with the case on, the flash produces a wash out effect.

    I have the case too, I love it. The only problem I have is the white wash out with the flash, im hoping someone finds a workaround (cutting it?)

    hey, can you post some pics from the iphone 4's camera with both the case on and off and the flash in use. there are reports of glare bouncing off the edge of the case around the flash cutout that effects picture quality.

    What do you mean they about white wash, I just tested shooting several pics with flash and seems to look fine. Thanks for the comment btw, I love it too :D

    When in a dark room, take a pic (with flash) without the case, then with one. You will probably notice a difference.

    Try a wide shot!! The problem does not effect close ups like that.

    Your right, when shooting a wide picture with the case on it produces this white wash effect.

    For illustration purposes the first picture is with case on the the second picture is with case off.

    See the Griffin Reveal thread.

    Just run a black marker around the inside edge of the camera/flash hole.

    Love the case, picked it up last night. Has the looks of a hard plastic case, but feels more "shock absorby" safe because of the softer material. Put an anti-glare screen protector from iFrogz on the front and the phone is looking and feeling pretty slick. Not babying it nearly as much as I was all day yesterday (got the phone Wednesday morning and was super nervous carrying it around all day after all the hoopla about the back or front screens breaking).

    Common sense would be to do this with the phone not in the case...

    Not if your planning to return it.

    Just let it dry first, before putting your iPhone back in the case.

    Would not do it if your planning on using it with a white iPhone either.

    Just bought the case from Best Buy myself. I have the same one for my iPad. I am very happy with both cases.

    I love this case, but would like it even better if I could find the black version. Has anyone run across the black?

    Thanks, I think I might hold off. I might return the case. The picture problem is def real. I want something that protects the front without a screen protector that I have to install. I never put them on right.

    I know the fix works with other cases, but I understand.


    Try to find a kiosk at the mall that will put a skin on your phone for you.
