    That way you can use it as a mirror. They could move all the words like "iPhone", "Designed by Apple", etc. onto one of the sides of the phone. Then maybe still have the Apple logo on the back but just a black outline on the all silver back.

    You could probably just buy an aftermarket mirrored back. I replaced the black back on my 4 with a clear back.

    The iPod 5g and classic had this. It just got scratched all to hell. Why not use the front camera instead,

    Using the front facing camera would make WAY too much sense.

    Right the front facing cam isn't very hi res. If I look at myself in the silver Apple logo on the back, it's so much clearer than using the front facing cam.

    So you can apply your makeup while filming yourself? What would guys need that for?

    Also what you're looking for is called polished back.

    Seriously? Apple makes me that much money for a phone, and now I have to buy a friend to use it?!

    I agree totally with this statement! My 1st gen iPod touch looks a bag of crap because of scratches!

    but i wish they include a HD from camera in the next iPhone because i often take pictures family with my wife and kid and it's hard to do it alone with the back camera.
