I also have the clear version, been using it about a 3 weeks and the "kickstand" just broke off yesterday.
It works great for scratches (on the screen area) not sure about the tinting. On the downside the oval button on the front makes it hard to hit the back and play buttons easily and the size of the headphone jack hole does not let you connect a 90 degree jack. (My car tape adapter is a 90 degree and it does not plug in all the way).
Overall it was a waste of $$ for me. Has anyone used the "folio" case, looks like a wallet on a chain? Looks cool and functional.
