    Just got mine today and its seems to be an updated version from the original pixel skin hd case. It has a bigger flash cutout and the volume and power buttons are different. Also the case seems a lot stiffer and harder. Almost feels like a different material. Also with the updated version u have to press the power button really hard in order to turn on the phone. In my opinion the original case is way better.

    Wow, the updated one looks sharp. Compared to the older one, the newer version looks more like a final product.

    Visually the newer one seems better, but of course changing what it is made of changes a lot more than looks. I have a Speck Fitted coming (in like a month :p) and they made the cutout bigger but I don't think they redisgned it nearly as much overall as the pixel skin.

    The ease in which you can press the power button on the first version is why I like it so much. No updating for me!

    That's what I picked through the case program.

    Doesn't looks so fly at the moment; looks like I'll be picking something else up… :(

    The pictures on the speck website still look like the original version (camera cutout). I wonder if they made a different (cheaper?) version for the free case program. Or if they just haven't updated the site.

    Yeah that's why I really hate the updated version. You have to really press hard on the power button. It even kinda hurts your finger. While the old version is nice and soft. Also I don't know if u could tell in the pics but the edges are more squared and the case also looks more wide than the original thus making the phone look bigger. I have no clue why they changed the original design when its was perfect. Maybe since they are giving them away they created this new version which might be cheaper to make.
