    do most soft TPU cases cause the G4's back to pop open when trying to remove the case?

    I have been trying this with both the black leather back that came with my G4, as well as a white plastic replacement cover that I bought.

    Both backs seem very prone to being popped open a little bit when I try to remove TPU cases from a few different manufacturers(such as Spigen) If I pry the case off very, very slowly and carefully, it's not as bad, but still causes at least 1 corner to pop up.

    I assume this is cause by the way the G4's back is designed and there's no way around it. However, I was wondering if perhaps the back on my G4 is not as secure as it should be? Has anyone else seen this "problem" on the G4?

    Yes, I think all of my cases make the back plate come off also.

    Yes. Don't use the case with my black leather for that reason. I have the gray plastic case and with that the case is good.

    I wonder if that's any worse than prying the back off with my fingers? The good thing about having a removable back is that it can be easily replaced for $10 to $20. Then again, these backs rarely break, right?

    I have a cruzerlite (?) case that I pop off and on frequently without the back cover even so much as wiggling. BB blue plastic back. Planning to replace it, though, and get a circle case (possibly Qi), because I am not happy about the edge getting scuffed when I do pop the case off and on during battery swaps.
