One of the best – Protective Back Case for iPhone 4 - Silver Reviews

posted by tgan7825 on 01/09/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
- it offers amazing protection without affecting the function of your iPhone 4s. (mic, headphone jack, chargers, camera, speakers and buttons all work fine)
- silicone inner layer with built in raised lip/bumper cushions the impact when you drop the iPhone. Also means it can rest on a table and the screen won't touch the surface.
- aluminium layer acts as a crumple shock absorber when you drop it (it crumples and crushes rather than letting your iPhone take the force, just like a car does in a crash). Even when it hits the ground hard, only the more exposed corner parts bend...doesn't crumple.
- looks good and doesn't add too much bulk to your phone.
Cons:
-Aluminium can scratch easily but, I'd rather it scratch than my phone.
- the gap for the silent switch is off centre but it is still very easy to use.
Other:
Some people may not like the dimpled texture on the exposed silicone bumper but it does give good grip
Bottomline:
Well worth the price. I am very clumsy and I've dropped my phone countless times and this case has protected it superbly. Would recommend getting a few if you're like me cause the aluminium does bend on impact.
Very small price compared to the price of repair/new iPhone 4/4s
