    the second one looks nice might have to purchase. anyone knows affects on signal?

    right Bowie have the truskin from luckylabs no signal decrease what so ever and it looks nice.

    I just don't like the slick feel and glossy look. scratches easy.

    Mine from SW BOX should be coming in today, great deal for only like $10. I'll put up some pics once it arrives.

    i come from the car world so carbon fiber is known to be real strong, light and adds a unique look to it. if i could only buy a true carbon fiber back plate

    I had this one when I had a black iphone 4, real carbon fiber, no imitations.

    CF is a super strong and lightweight material made out of thousands of strands. Looks bad ass when light strikes it (3D effect).

    Just got the plates today, the carbon fiber one is a whole lot better than one would expect for $10, but it's still not anything close to quality. The gold one is fresh and that's what I'll be rocking on my 4S from now on. For $10 I had to pull the trigger. http://www.sw-box.com/wholesale-iPhone-Housings-Faceplates.html

    Sorry for the huge pics, not sure how to make them smaller.

    Affect on camera?

    Do these third party backplates affect the camera on the 4s?

    Has anyone with a back plate noticed a degradation in photo quality with and without the flash? The back plate lens is more than likely inferior to the OEM plate.

    I has a real CF back on my 4S and it did a number on my RF. Lost at least a bar off the radio.

    Hmm. Sounds like it shouldn't matter unless the cover is made out of metal under the carbon fiber.
