    Very nice looking case, I just don't like how the Apple logo is vulnerable and how the chrome is quite unprotected. But for a minimal bulk/protection case, it looks good.

    i think SGP provides a clear circle film protector for the apple logo that you can apply so you can protect that.

    but yea, the chrome is basically completely exposed. Good quality case though.

    Yes quality of SGP cases is really good! I actually ordered two cases (the carbon one seen in the pics and a black plus (non gloss black, comes with 2 screen protectors).

    The normal black case has a matte type finish and seems VERY slippery in the hands, Carbon case provides some grip as the surface is not smooth but textured from the carbon fibre style weave

    In terms of protection, no impact protection at all, I doubt the case will soften the blow if I dropped it but then again not sure if any other cases would still protect an iphone from a fall unless its 2 inch thick of padding. SGP provides the logo protector for the back.

    This is a awesome case for people who want to prevent scratches to their iphone while maintaining a sleek good look

    I've gone through three of these SGP cases (plain black) and they have cracked towards the top left every single time. I contacted SGP and they said they could only replace one. My phone was never dropped or handled rough. I love theses slim cases but switched back to the incase slider.

    You're referring to the Steinheil Anti Fingerprint right? Does that have adhesive on it or is it just static cling?

    Same here that was the 1st case i bought. The 1st one has a "peeling" issue and they replaced it free. The replacement however had that same crack. You can find other people with the same complaint. Both mine did and 2 that ha friend had also. So i have seen 4 cases in the flesh have the crack. Its a molding issue, the top corner must have been like one micron(SP?) off and causes that spot to "stress" in order to compensate for the slight undersize

    Looks Like CF

    It replicates the look of CF but it's plastic. Just to let people know...
