I just received my white Desmay Slight for my phone. Overall I have to say that I really like the case! It offers protection around the side and back while retaining the sleek form factor of the iPhone. A few things to note: all buttons are easily accessible, though it would be nicer if the cutouts for the volume and side switch would be more precise (this is to accommodate the iPhone 4 as well), the Desmay logo on the back has already rubbed off, and the color of the case is a slightly cooler white (in color temperature) compared to the white of the iPhone, but its not really a big deal.

Here are some pictures of the case on the phone:

Looks much better than the "clear" one that I have on my white iPhone, which looks much more grey/brown.

Can you take a picture of the back of the iPhone?

here is the picture of the back:



yeah, I do wish the cutouts would fit the buttons better, and I'd imagine it would look more "centered" on a 4 vs a 4s, but it doesn't bug me too much any more

It doesn't bother me at all. If someone notices I want to know why they're looking at my phone so close :D

The openings for the mute and volume buttons looks horrible. They could have done a better job than that.

Just a quick question about his Desmay Case, does it scratches antenna band?

That's what I was thinking. I have a Switcheasy Nude that is the same style case and the cut outs are really nice and they fit the 4 and 4S nicely. This look looks almost like it was stretched or something. Not cute at all!

For something that is suppose to be pecision cut I have 2 issues:

1. The button cuts are all to high. Its SO obvious I dont know how they could have missed it.

2. The case does not fit aound the 4S fully. I can squeeze the left side and get a click.

I reported it to them, but I am sure the mold wont be changed as its the same one for all the colors. Disappointing but I still use the case.

Anyone have a suggestion on this type of case with better hole alignment. The Pinlo Slice 3 is better but leaves the entire bottom exposed.

I am also thinking of getting the white desmay....does anyone know if the white will discolour over time? and is it washable if it gets dirty?

You certainly can rinse it off. The only reasons I can see for discoloring are UV exposure or heat.

I have the knockoff version if this case that i got for $5 from eBay. Its and looks the same as this case. Kinda glad I didn't pay $30 for it. Btw getting a shield for the back and sides is the equivalent of getting this case. Since theres no issues with the band, why bother?

Thanks a lot. It does look like the volume buttons are hard to access tho.
Don't worry, the case I received is not the one in the picture which is why I suggested to put in "4S" into the search which means it'd be the newer version. The case I received is absolutely identical as the OP's just that I went with frosted black.
