    "New soft-looking volume buttons being on right side of iPhone 4S can probably be attributed to the "volume button to take pic" iOS5 feature."

    Sounds inaccurate to me. Every camera I've ever used had the shutter button on the right side of the camera. If they moved the volume buttons to the other side of the phone then that means the shutter button will be on the left side of the phone which feels awkward to me. Why would Apple go against conventional shutter button placement and change the place were their customers are used to having the volume buttons?

    It might be because they'll actually be using the volume buttons as the shutter button. Or if that's not the case (which i highly boubt) it could be an issue with space inside the phone.

    No, im aware that the volume button is going to be the shutter button. Grab your phone and pretend like the volume buttons r on the right side of the phone and imagine using them to take a picture, then imagine taking a picture with the volume buttons where they r now. moving the buttons would mean that u r using your left index finger to take the picture not your right. if they leave the volume buttons where they r now then it would work out fine.

    I use the Cydia tweak Snappy to take pics with my volume button, and I use my thumb (I usually hold my phone with my left hand, as I'm lefty). If the volume buttons were reversed, I'd just use my index finger.

    I think the case is legit.

    Hold the phone vertically, and it would feel fine, would it not?

    Personally, I see nothing wrong with putting the volume buttons on the right of the phone. Seems legit to me.
