    I got this case a few days ago and love it! :D The rounded corners make it look more like the 3GS. Here's a couple pics...sorry the pics are that great.

    Hopefully yours doesn't look as bad as mine does in a few weeks. After about 3-4 weeks of gentle and light use, the textured finish began coming off the black surround. It looked horrible as the painted-on texture would flake off, so I stopped using it. In addition, the fabric edges on the back start to fray after awhile. It didn't bother me, but it wasn't great.

    I thought it was good case otherwise.

    I wondered about the fabric fraying. Guess we'll see!

    Been using this case for more then a month now. The quality of Speck products have always been good. Although mine came with a slight defect. I am however, still looking forward to my Pixelskin HD that is coming through the Apple free case.

    I've had this case for a week and I finally put it on tonight, like 10min ago and goddamn I really like it!

    I had to take off my luckylabs carbon texture sides because it made the case fit too tight and in turn would cause my screen protector to bubble in the corners. I was able to leave the texture carbon back on with no issues and now u get a little carbon peek-a-boo in the camera cutout!

    the case feels good, looks good and all the openings are large enough to accommodate pretty well anything you can throw at it. Also what is nice about this case is that the inside is also coated with the same "soft touch" finish as the outside so the phone while in the case has a nice, smooth and soft place to rest.

    Hopefully it holds up long term and for me that means maybe a couple weeks at best until I move on to something else but I'm really digging this case, it just feels right and looks smart at the same time!

    case is great after the first install.

    try removing it and if you are successful, check out the lines on the side you pull it off, it is no longer as fitting as the first install.

    great case but thumbs down on the removal part.

    subesquent removal is gonna break one of the catch at the corner of the case.

    I find it quite easy to take apart and get off. Not as easy as say a slider case but it takes like a second with minimal effort and everything goes back together like it should.

    Im sure they have to have some type of return/refund if its based off faulty or defunct product parts (i.e. the finish coming off). Doubt it would fall under normal wear and tear.

    hi i just ordered this through the free case program and i would like to ask does it damage your screen protectors? I have heard cases where this case bubbles/destroy the screen protectors because it's too tight. Im a little worried since i have both the front and back protectors on.

    The front will be fine but may be too tight with the back also.

    I have a carbon back from luckylabs and I have a front screen protector and it all fits fine. The only issue was the carbon side pieces from luckylabs, they made the phone too wide and that caused fitment issues, I think the normal spectra wraps from luckylabs might work fine but anything thick like the texture wraps or any of the other thicker skins (zagg, bse etc) will probably be too thick for the sides

    I had this case and returned it a few days later. I felt it was to light for me personally. I also didn't like the exposed buttons. I'm back to rockin my Bumper now.
