iPhone 4 owner ingeniously transforms their handset into a Leica Camera
Remember how Steve Jobs compared the iPhone 4's design to an old school Leica camera? Well apparently one handset owner decided to take the daunting task of transforming their iPhone 4 into one that looks like a Leica camera. No, you're not going to spend a fortune on retrofitting the smartphone with some camera internals and parts, but instead, you're only going to simply rely on a few basic items. One MacRumors user had an ingenious idea and basically utilized a Griffin Reveal Case and a printed picture of a Leica camera. Since the rear of the Griffin case is transparent, he essentially cut the photo of the Leica camera and fitted it onto the case – while a couple of cut out holes were created for the camera and LED flash. In addition, certain spots were blacked out to make the cut out look flawless and present the iPhone 4 as a Leica camera. So if you want to tackle this easy do-it-yourself project, you can start off by buying the case and printing out the picture of the M8.

No, I'm pretty sure that this isn't news. I mean come on, I can write an article just as good... "Local individual makes his iphone sweeter than the everyone else. If your wondering how he did this, well you take a cup of sugar and poor it on your iphone."

@Sellcell who says it has to be news maybe they were just trying to show people cool things they could do to make their iPhone look more personal or interesting,they write news articles most of the time so it's not like they can't take a break from writing regular news articles to show readers something they thought was cool and besides if you can write a better article maybe you should have your own phone review website instead of going to other people's to criticize the work they do since you can do it "just as good" @trentsinmypants i agree i think thats a really good idea hahaha:)

Information about a phone on a phone website is not allowed anymore?

Ok, I'm sorry if I offended you all, "persondude11, dood, and trentsinmypants." Wait, just kidding!!! HaHaHa!!! By the way Phonearena is here to voice are opinions. I'm allowed to criticize who ever I want on here, just like you did to me. So learn to have a sense of humor, get out of you parents basement, get a girl-friend or boy-friend or maybe both if you bye, and last of all get a job. ;)
