I just got my iPhone 4S a couple days ago. I had the 3G so it was a nice improvement. My 3G had a screen protector on the front, and on the back a BSE skin. It was to me a great combo. I am a person who carries his phone in his back pocket and I have never had a problem. New phone, glass on front and back. I left the Apple store with the phone and a Speck Candyshell in black with grey. I had it opened and put on the phone for LESS than 2 minutes and rubbed it on my tshirt to get a smudge off and bam, scratch. Anytime I touched the back there were more of them. I like the protection but not how the back looks. in 2 days it is completely full of scratches. The camera area is always full of dust which drives me nuts. if I hadn't been recommended this case by the the Apple Geeks I probably would have read the reviews and made my own decision on whether to buy it or not. I won a Otterbox Defender from eBay and I am sure it will be way to bulky for me. I want a very miminual case, great of the pocket and doesn't show every little scratch. Is there a case like that out there? Thanks.
