    serves as a bumper like the apple cases but also has a sheet of thick plastic to cover the hole back
    looks great

    a bumper with a skin on the back looks better and serves the same purpose.

    i did buy this one for my girlfriend though :D

    People have been saying that because of this case + iPhone 4's flash, pictures are messed up and come out with white spots on them.

    Have you noticed anything like that?
    There is a thread somewhere in the accessory section.

    if that is the griffin reveal then i hated like it for my 3gs but hated it. i hated it because so much dust and crap would get under there and then end up scratching the back all up and putting little pits in the plastic.

    It interferes with the flash. Trust me on this and return it.

    I just returned my Griffin Reveal today because it kills picture quality with the flash.

    My local best buy only had that kind in white... WTH.

    Can you plug a normal headphone jack into this case or only the Apple one?

    Works fine so far, with 2 non-Apple headphones.

    I just placed an order for one because I love the way the case looks and I only use a case when I'm out doing something high risk like a beach or amusement park and I don't need a flash during the day. I'm not worried about scratching because I used a skin on the back too. So basically this case is perfect for me. I had it on my 3gs as well and after going through at least 10 different cases it turned out I liked this one the best.

    How so? I've got the Reveal (and my Leica skin - check out the mod!) and I'm taking pictures just fine.

    As much as I love your mod, there is a drastic difference between photos with the case on and with the case off. Someone posted their photos over on the accessory board, and they were much like mine. It is difficult to explain. Check out the photos.

    Mine came in straight from Griffin via UPS earlier today (good coupon codes on retailmenot).

    It is a great case... might could be a tad snugger, but that's my only complaint. You can barely see the back, it doesn't stick on your pocket, doesn't collect lint. Plus, it has more padding (more potential protection during a fall) than I had anticipated considering it's thin form.

    I recommend (whatever that's worth :confused:)!

    It will collect lint. Just wait. I've had mine on since Wednesday, and it is a lint magnet. Plus I hate the flash interference. :-(

    LAKERS! LAKERS! LAKERS! Boston sucks! Boston sucks! Boston sucks!


    Anyways, the Griffin Reveal for 3G/3GS sucked and unfortunately so does this one. Return it.

    Haven't found either to be a problem -- pics are fine and not a lot of dust and junk yet. Appreciate the warnings though and I'm going to hang onto it for a few more days just to be sure. I actually really like it so far!

    This. All that clear plastic will absorb the flash and create a white spot around the lens.

    This is probably why the Bumper is what it is. An LED flash and a clear case simply will NOT work.

    I suspect the Reveal will be recalled at some point.

    I'm exchanging mine 2day as well. Nice case, but can't and won't deal with the flash issue.

    Yep, I had this for my 3GS. AFter awhile, it will collect lint and dust and make your phone look butt ugly, and possibly scratch it.
