    I just got my case and was planning on drilling out the imperfections that one of the other reviews stated. But when I got it, the case had already been redesigned to not cover the noise canceling mic, as well as the vibrate button. I was very happy with that, so just thought I would share in case anyone is hesitant of buying this for those reasons.

    First off, I love this case, but I cannot give it more than 3 stars for the following reasons.

    1. The hole that goes over the mute/vibrate switch is out of alignment and it covers part of the switch itself. I can still flip it with relative ease, but cosmetically it looks like it was poorly designed.

    2. the hole that goes over the headphone slot covers the 2nd microphone for noise canceling/video recording which could result in poor quality in comparison to an uncovered hole. I simply cut the portion out that covered the 2nd mic near the headphone slot, but it would have looked a lot neater had the case been designed with that in mind. I am attaching pictures to demonstrate what I am talking about.

    On the positive side, it is a little thicker of a case than I realized, so the phone is actually a little better protected than I thought it would be. The case also fits the phone very well, not too tight, not too loose. It is exactly the fit I would expect with a case.

    This case is exactly what I thought it would be and I love it. It is not too thick, but will still protect the phone against short drops and light bumps. The way the elements are adhered to the white base are really good and I don’t think they’ll ever come off. It may be a little funny when it looks like you’re holding a GameBoy up to the side of your head, but that’s exactly why I got it! I was very pleasantly surprised to see mine actually came with the correct branding elements under the screen (if you know what I’m talking about). I hope the copyright police don’t come after me.

    The only major problem is the hole in the case for the headphone jack is only big enough for the plug itself. That little hole on the iPhone 4 and 4S that is right next to the headphone jack is the noise cancelling microphone so it’s pretty important to keep it unblocked. I had to cut into the silicone case with a really sharp Xacto knife and make a “V” indentation for the mic. A not too terribly big deal, but I’ll knock a star off for it.
