I found this while messing around on eBay and bought it instantly. I'll post a review of it once I get it and use it for a while! I love the looks of it from the pictures!

REVIEW

I went to my PO Box this morning and i saw two bubble bags in it! My Opti-fit kit and my new case! I opened the case as soon as i got into the car and i loved the look of it instantly.

It came in one of those generic bags that you see in the mall, with a piece of plastic covering the back from scratching in the bag. It fits the Verizon iPhone 4/ and all 4s devices perfectly with the ring switch dead center in the hole. The buttons take some extra pressure to click. but if that is really an issue for you you could easily take an exacto knife to the slots and open them  up.  

It is a slim fitting case. There is not a layer in between the back of the iPhone and the plastic shell of the case (a la candyshell.)  The case has a nice texture to the side, and feels pretty good in your hand. I think i will really like this case! here are a few comparison pictures with the candyshell...

From the pictures I am guessing it will be. Around the size of the Candyshell. Which I don't mind as I have larger hands.

Nope they're both grey. Might look a little darker in the one picture due to lighting.

nope, the one is clearly black, that ain't lighting... just don't get the one that has the printed design, an optical illusion (like those sidewalk murals)

Almost forgot about the screen protector! Yes i came with one "anti-glare" screen protector... i dont need it right now, but it will be nice to have an extra one lying around if i need it.

It is surprisingly responsive (buttons), and the durability is great (dropped it a few times oops.) the ball fits (my phone) perfectly, and the feel is awesome (once you get used to a dimpled phone.)

On a scale of Fuzz - ProV1x, I give it a ProV1X!!!

This is my all time favorite case!

I have the same case. But, I cut out the plastic over the on/off button, works much nicer
