I bought two types of cases for the iPhone and here is what I think of them:
It’s one of the prettier silicone designs in the store. The case doesn’t add too much bulk to the phone. The cut-outs are positioned well. The buttons are covered which added extra protection. The button covers are protruding so it is not hard to figure out where to press. It actually made it easier to press the buttons. The screen protective cover only covers the screen area and doesn’t extend to the black areas. It does the job though and touch sensitivity is not affected too much. It was also easy to put on. The case is loose though. And over time, it gets even more loose. It is true that the case easily comes off when taking the phone out of pants pocket. Over time, the case easily comes off when phone is taken out of my purse too. Because it is loose, dirt easily gets inside. When you take off the case after a few days, you’ll find the back of the phone dirty. The bottom part of the case (below the home button) is thin and sometimes get caught with other things. Right now I’m sticking with hard shell cases until I find a silicone case that fits well. I’m currently using the Griffin Wave case.
The case looked very chic. It has this smooth finish that feels great to the touch. However, since it is made of plastic and no rubber grips, it is more prone to slippage unlike its silicone counterparts. The case fits the iPhone well, but not perfectly. Dust can enter the case and settle inside. The installation is a bit difficult. Due to its interlocking curved sides, it is very possible to scratch the surface of the iPhone while installing the case. You also need to apply a little strength to install it. The clear protective cover for the iPhone screen is thick and affects the touchscreen sensitivity a little bit, but it works. I decided to not use the Griffin clear protective cover and use the one from Belkin (above) instead.
