    As much as I love Case-Mate and their design, their Pop! case is horribly flawed.

    The rubber that they use on the case easily rubs off like an eraser!

    An inside shot of the case. As you can see the edges that come in contact when putting the phone into my jean pocket or laying it on the table rub away and turn into a rubber shaving.

    So if you are deciding to buy this case, don't. Before you say that I had used the case for a year, or beat the phone up, I had used the case for a week until going back to radioshack to TRY to get a refund, apparently when the case looks this beat up they can't refund it. Also, It was for my new 4S and I treated it like a baby. Kinda pissed :mad: Sticking with my bumper!

    I'd contact them and get a replacement, looks like a defect in the material during manufacture.

    I don't think its a manufacturer defect, my friend picked up the case after me and its starting to rub off also. Looks like Case-Mate decided to go with some cheap rubber. Any1 else have this problem?
