    Hey guys finally got this after 3 weeks of waiting.

    fit is great has all the same stuff as the apple on on the inside.

    metal mounting brackets not plastic like what was said before.

    all my picture tests havent shown any difference in quality with and without flash.

    cant comment on the scratchproofness.

    simple quick install.

    also got the dock from them has a great feel and weight for 5 bucks.

    i hear the back may slide down a little bit and cause vignetting on the top, any issues with that? does it feel oem?

    it looks OEM for sure.

    as for feel the camera lens in a little lower than the backplate so you can feel a difference there slightly. which will save it from getting scratches. for the feel other than that feels perfect to me though i have had a sgp leather white skin on the back of mine for over 4 months.

    also with the sliding down i haven't experienced any of that i tried to push it down after you said that and it wouldn't budge. maybe they had the screws too loose or too tight?

    Looks pretty good for $18..

    was it easy to remove the original backpanel?

    i don't see how plastic screw brackets would work since the threads are so damn tiny on the screws. i would guess they would but i have no clue.;

    what is the difference between that 18 dollar one and the more expensive one on sw box? there has to be some reason they are charging more for the other one, maybe the glass is higher quality or something like that.

    I recently bought also a backplate from sw-box but the holes for the 2 screws are too big. The screws can never be tightened. Recently put my iphone into a new sleeve and the backplate came right off, together with those tiny screws...

    Put the orginal backplate on and emailed sw-box, I'm curious to see their customer service..
