    Hey Guys -

    Just got the white iphone on launch day and absolutely love it. Of course my Incase snap case didn't fit because the white iPhone is a bit thicker. Can you guys recommend a clear or frosted clear TPU / silicone case? It also should not be crazy tight because I have a power support protector on the front and don't want it to bubble up from the case.

    Thanks in advance
    @dpdesilva (for all things Apple-from a former apple emp)

    That's odd. I have the Incase snap on my white iPhone. It's a little tighter fit than on the black, but it still works.

    It's been sounding more like quality-control than anything else. Apple would never let those 0.2 mm slip.

    iLuv Flex-Gel TPU Jelly Case

    Cool, minimal case. Great fit - even for the white iPhone 4 ;)

    did you see the "straw" test picture? the white iphone is clearly thicker. Also many others have reported it to be thicker. Umm I doubt these allegations just popped out of nowhere if people didn't actually see or feel a difference in the phones. i would agree with the quality control statement. maybe some are the same size, but most definitely there are ones that are thicker. (thats NOT what she said)

    I'm wondering the same. I'm looking at the SGP ultra thin one for my wife's iphone but not sure if it fits. The current case (unknown case from a friend) I have on my black IP4 is a total SNUG fit.

    My clear Belkin Grip Vue came today, and it's fantastic. Provides protection, but you can still clearly see the white iPhone. I, too, have a PS anti-glare screen protector on my phone, and this case does not cause it to bubble. Installation is a snap -- you just pull the case over the iPhone.

    The Griffin FlexGrip seems to be along the same lines, though I haven't seen one in person yet. (I ordered the black one for my son today.) It's a lot less expensive, especially since they have free shipping. The Belkin has a slightly opaque finish -- the Griffin doesn't seem to (though the Belkin didn't seem to either on their website). (The opaque finish didn't look so hot on a black iPhone.)
