This is a really simple trick that I'm sure lots of people have done before, but as far as I can tell, nobody's bothered to actually post it online. Of course, if somebody did mention it years before and I missed it, feel free to share the link and flame me in any subsequent posts I bought an iPhone 4 this morning, but I wasn't about to shell out another $30 to AT&T for a case. I'm currently looking at my options online, but in the meantime I wanted to keep my sleek piece of hardware clean. Nobody wants their brand new iPhone 4 to get scratches like this. What I did was just leave the plastic scratch protector on the back of the iPhone. I cut off that little tab that there's for you to pull it up with so it wasn't in the way. Tada! Now I have a fancy scratch protector compliments of Apple. If you're thinking to yourself "hmm, won't the plastic affect the quality of pictures?", well I took these two photos for you. The one on the left has it on and the one on the right has it peeled back. There does appear to be a slight quality increase on the one with it off, but I think it's because I took the photo from slightly further away. Could be that it's the plastic. Regardless, I don't really see any significant change in the image quality. I would have done this for the front screen, but there's no hole cut for the home button or the speaker. Plus the nice sales associate removed it for me before I left the store.
