    As you may have guessed, this is the case I chose from the case program. I'm here to tell you about it to help with your decision if you haven't chosen yet.

    The Back:

    The back is made of a hard plastic made to look like carbon fiber. It's very thick for an iPhone 4 case. It add the main bulk of this case. To be honest, I feel like I'm holding a brick, but the security feels nice too. There is a matte sort of feel to the back that helps with griping the case.

    The Sides:

    The sides are made of a rubber-like plastic that is flimsy but a little tight when on the phone.
    The right side has nothing but the griffin logo.

    The left side has very basic buttons for volume. The hole for the silence switch is very big and easily accessible.

    The top of the case had a very wide headphone hole. I'm pretty sure any headphone will work with it. The sleep/wake button is very responsive.

    The bottom has a wide hole for the dock charger. The speaker and microphone holes are a little off center but that's not a big deal for me.

    Over-view:
    The case itself offers a lot of protection to the back of the phone with its thick plastic back. And the rubber-like sides offer shock absorption. I'd say the case is decent. But for the $30 price tag it carries normally, I wouldn't buy it. If you don't mind a thicker case and like keeping your glass back intact, this case should be your choice, but if you're looking for something on the thinner side, stay away from this one.​

    If you'll notice the thickness it adds.(last picture)

    I'm working on it. I have no camera so I had to take those with my iPhone. When I find my camera, I'll do so.

    Can you check if the camera is affected by the case?

    I got this free case out of the lot. It's the only one that looks half decent IMO.
