    Anyone using this case with their iPhone 5?
    I got it today and everything is great except that its moving a small amount inside the case. Kinda worried it'll scratch my iPhone, but it isn't moving all that much.

    Anyone else?

    I have one. Mine fit snugly... I wonder why yours isn't.

    I switched mine for a Speck Candyshell because I didn't like how big the hole was for the camera, but that was the only issue I had with that case.

    The big camera hole from Speck is to help prevent camera flash reflection showing in the pictures. Job well done by Speck.

    I don't mind the size of it on Speck, the Griffin Reveal's is about twice as big and the case was snug but not tight like the Candyshell, so I would see dust and dog hair and things that would drive me up the wall.

    Hmm.. Well thanks for the reply. I'll take it back to best buy tomorrow and see if I can exchange it for a new one and see how that one fits.

    I don't really mind the big camera hole.

    I was going to get this case as a substitute for the Belkin equivalent. However, I noticed that the difference between the two was that the Griffin one seemed like a cheap, flimsy bumper with cheap plastic attached. The Belkin one seemed more durable and well made. This case is just to "Get me by". Waiting for the iPhone 5 lifeproof and/or otterbox reflex.

    Are you referring to the Belkin Grip Candy?

    Well I just got a replacement one and it's snug, so it seems to be just the other one that was loose.

    Haha! Sorry for delay in response (haven't checked the forums lately)

    I got the Belkin View case. There are some poor reviews bc the clear part scratches, but I didn't mind as I already had the expectation it was not scratch proof.

    Glad to hear that the replacement case is working for you!!

    Not the best pics as taken on my ipad and not easy to get the scratches in the light.

    It isnt a "bad" case but the clear back doesn't look good once scratched so I use a variety of none clear ones which look better

    Wow - looks just like mine! I like the Reveal case, but the back plastic looks awful. I like a very thin unobtrusive case. Am now using the "free" one I got from ZooGue. Its not bad, but not great.
