    Has anyone had any luck finding an inexpensive one that fits properly and has no flash issues?

    The SGP Cube I have is cut too small and creates problems when used with the flash... :mad:

    I currently have the one slick wraps has to offer and I have to say that I really love it. I posted a review on it somewhere around these forums. The nice thing is it's real leather, but that means it's a little higher priced than most ($25) but there is a 20% off coupon.

    I have the Black Leather Skin Guard from SGP. It's basically a vinyl sticker with a leather pattern that covers the back of the phone... with cutouts for the camera/flash and Apple logo. I love it. It's classy... and there's no flash issue.

    I also use the SENA Ultra Slim case. And the leather back doesn't get in the way at all.

    That looks nothing like the POS I received from Cretouch... :confused:

    The opening for the flash is much larger and it actually looks like it is cut to the correct size... :eek:

    A properly-cut piece of vinyl like that should be available on eBay for no more than $5. Anyone come across one yet?

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Thanks Babe, but I'm not a big fan of the ********************* pattern embossed on the back... ;)

    I got the Zagg Leatherskins

    http://www.zagg.com/leatherskins/iphone4.php#black-plain

    I used to have the SGP leather skin but I really disliked it. The Zagg feels more like genuine leather and there's no camera issue at all. Overtime, however, the leather tends to be pressed so it doesn't feel as spongey as when you first got it. I'm happy with it overall :cool:

    Those look nice! I opted for the SGP since it was thinner and wouldn't make the overall package too thick to fit into the Sena Ultra Thin pouch. If I didn't use the pouch though, that'd be a nice option.

    I can't tell from the pictures - is the apple logo a cutout or just printed on the leather skins?

    In my experiences they are cut-outs. To keep your logo flawless, use a screen shield underneath.

    My SGP leather back stayed on for a long time with almost no wear, until when the phone got doused with water, and then got replaced. I might get another one of those.
