    I would love to do this, but would rather have someone do it for me who knows what they're doing.

    Blue metal back from united...better quality than my red one. Camera ring is properly centered but didn't come with the flash diffuser but I transferred the diffuser from my red back.

    I just used tweezers and lifted it up.....could be easier bc it's an aftermarket back.....didn't want to chance the oem one.

    Is the flash diffuser the little black "border" around the flash? I get the flash fuzziness with the pink back so I took a look and compared it to my husband's original back (that had cracked and we replaced with a united black back which takes perfect flash photos). The only difference was the little black border so I lifted it off and transferred it to my pink back but unfortunately the fuzziness is still there.

    So I googled "flash diffuser" and found out it's not the black border thingie, lol. And it looks like the pink back has the same exact flash diffuser as my original back BUT it just doesn't work properly. Oh well.

    So my brushed metal back finally came! I love it. only took one day shy of a month to get here. Crazy...I'll never buy a part from china again. Shipping took way too long.




    One thing I can say that I noticed is when I take a picture there is a little white blow out on the bottom of the picture from the flash. For now I'll keep it on, but I might take it off if it really starts to bother me.

    They are all like that. They all screw with the camera and this is why I gave mine away. My friend said he didnt mind and after 5 days he took it off and threw it away.

    I like the GemShell but it is made out of hard polycarbonate plastic. It will look like **** soon.

    I really wish they didn't mess with the camera, because I really like the way that it looks.

    just about a month to receive ?!?!? Holy cannolis !!

    Definitely sharp looking E too bad there's the camera issue with the flash that you mentioned

    I've thought about getting a new backing for mine, but I've decided to just change out my covers with diff colors to keep me happy at this point Im totally dedicated to otterbox defenders in a BIG way

    Dude, that looks perfect!! Absolutely flawless!! I love the clear glass back. It's times like these that I wish I could ditch my OtterBox Defender for a mod like that!! Great job!!

    I'd personally prefer an aluminum or even stainless steel back for mine rather than glass. What can I say? I'm a heavy metal guitarist. LOL!!!!

    I recently saw the Ballistic case here in the TIPb store. Not that I need another ruggedized case, but I like how it looks and that it covers the Apple logo rather than how the Otterbox Defender, does not.
