    Wow what camera did you use for that?? I have been trying to get a pic of mine and was not able to.

    Its a defect for sure, i contacted SGP and they said it would replace the case if I could get an image emailed to them, but my camera is not "good" enough I guess. I believe the molding for the 2nd version black case (the 1st being the one withe flaking issue) the upper camera side corner is a tiny bit too small and causes a stress crack as it tries to stretch and fit perfectly. Mine is like that and i also have a friend that has the exact same issue. So in total that would make 3 of us right here.

    1st for the camera, it is a sub $100 cheap camera(canon A590is), the trick is take it outside under the sun, use macro setting, and use a manetfying glass in between the camera lens and the object.

    2nd I just receive a reply from SPG
    3rd Dunno if this is related, my initial order number from SPG is 666:eek:

    lol 666 wow that's a myth
    i actually don't know about hard cases...well i do have tried few hard cases and actually using one for now tho..
    but i like silicon cases better..switch easy color! :)
    hard case must be protective but since i don't want to lose the shape of the phone, i need to look for a thin case which will not be so strong enough against shocks. well im not throwing my phone around tho..
    Yeah you should get a replacement from them definitely

    Hopefully that replacement case won't show cracks again. It seems a lot of those "jacket type of cases" encounter cracks.

    I got my replacement today too. I want to know if yours cracks again, so please post. I will use this but not right now i really seem to like my incipio feather which is really similar but i like how it covers the bezel and gives a smoother appearence.
