I had to return mine because it kept creating a white wash when I used my flash. Tried everything but it kept reflecting off the transparent glass.

You have to install a flash diffuser... Sw-box sells them. Most back plates dont come with these equipped

This is my transparent backplate on my 4S.. I don't really like the chrome, but it's whatever. Most of the time you can't even see the apple logo since there's such a glare on it lol

I also had trouble getting it on. Took a few tries, and one screw would go in on both sides, but the other would only go in on one side. It was strange..

And yes, this one has the newer metal screw posts. I know you said you wanted one without logos, but just in case, it's from CNN.cn

whats this flash diffuser about? that one from the ebay link doesnt have the ring for the flash, unless thats the diffuser?

the one from ifixit is completely bare so i might spend the extra money and get that one. wouldnt want to take the chance with a $6 one from ebay

These look great. I'm going to order one of these later today!
