I bought the shell in clear or transparent for a white iPhone 4S. The unobtrusive casing fitted perfectly, felt good and I felt the protection as absolutely sufficient. However, I have now discarded after 8 months, I had not noticed that she obviously faded gradually. When someone accidentally (with Hard Case in transparent) put his white iPhone next to mine, the strong yellowing of the envelope was apparently - and that looks natural for white iPhone unappetizing (wash has not effected). Given the price I think it is now not so dramatic. On the other hand, you have to wonder if clear cases make any sense at all, the white iPhone is chosen quite deliberately or "yellowed" expected pretty much the opposite of being what people want, which have a white iPhone. I have now chosen twice as expensive variant of iSkin and am curious.
