    I added an aluminum back to my iPhone 4. It looks so much better and it gives me much more confidence and protection against drops. It looks really good with the aluminum antenna.

    Yeah 64gb and A5 that would be great

    I wish I had a miniature elephant that fit in the palm of my hand. I would pick him up and he'd lift up his trunk and stand on his back legs and say PRRRRRRRRRRRRMMMMMMMMMPPPPPPPPPHHHHHHHH and I would say yes little elephant i love you too.

    From 2G to 3G big difference. From 3G and 3GS, 4G looked nothing like the two.
    This doesn't look as classy as the iPhone 4. I like the current flat, black iPhone I am not using any protection apart from some protection film.

    I went skiing with my i4, and it is still in pristine condition.

    Yeah I've got the raised aluminum back as well. It looks like its OEM next to the aluminum antenna. Very beautiful setup. I have a feeling Apple will create something similar with a more uni-body approach like they do with iPod Touches. Its probably going to a be a pain to remove it. I don't think Apple likes that fact that 3rd party companies are developing so many custom iPhone 4 back covers.

    Not even close dude. I owned the first get iPhone and the aluminum back was extremely resilient. More so than any plastic or glass that they have used since. I'm quite fond of the current design but I've been hoping for an aluminum version for a while now.
