    Do these exist? Do they make ones that actually cover the camera lens/sensor/flash? The reason I'm interested for one is purely cosmetic.

    My idea is to use a vinyl sticker on the back then apply the glass protector over it. I think it could look great ... as if the sticker design was a part of the phone.

    I've searched around but so far no luck. The glass back protectors usually have huge cutaways over the camera or around the apple logo (ughhh)..

    I can imagine that covering the flash with glass can produce internal reflections on the camera, but has this been established? If I had a spare swatch of GlasT or other material I'd do an experiment.

    The alternative is if I can find one that has very small cutouts. But I might ditch the whole idea entirely if it's not possible to cover the camera.

    Does anybody know of a glass back protector without cutouts?

    Thanks.

    I'm serious.

    I don't think it's going to be that slippery.

    FWIW I'd use a bumper with it so the back won't get all scratched up from normal use. The bumper would provide some grip.

    And how would a glass back for iPhone 5 be any different than an iPhone 4?

    It wouldn't be any different. The iPhone 4/4S is slippery, especially when the phone is cold, which makes the glass so smoooooth.
