Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Several of the things mentioned in other reviews are completely true:
- It does get sort of greasy-feeling after extended use. This can be alleviated somewhat by removing the case and washing it in soap and water, but it will end up having a somewhat oily, somewhat rubbery feel almost all the time.
- The corners are bulky, probably bulkier than you would expect from these pictures. That said, I've gotten completely used to it, and I'm ultimately thankful for the excellent amount of protection the corners provide.
- The rubbery material does cause resistance when you are placing your phone in your pocket.
- It can cause your phone to wobble when set on a flat surface.
I have stuck with this case because of it's utility, and because it is attractive (manufacturer offers an assortment of extra colors at their website; I recently bought "wisteria purple" and "jungle green"). While cards add extra bulk with each added card, I've been using the case with three cards comfortably, though trying to stuff any amount of cash in is a good bit more trouble than it's ever worth. The rubberiness is such that I can place the phone on most surfaces and know that it isn't going to slide off; under normal driving conditions, I place it on my sloped car dash and leave it there, and it doesn't move. Likewise, my cards are held in place very firmly, and they have never fallen out unintentionally, not once.
There are some compromises, namely in the feel of the phone if you are used to holding a naked iPhone. But frankly, I have grown comfortable with differences and have even grown to like many of them (I rarely feel like I'm going to drop my phone). If you are excited about the utility of the case, and you have a color combination that you like, these pros may outweigh the cons for you, as they certainly do for me.
Also, I wanted to mention that when the manufacturer messed up my order, they were very quick to make it right, basically sending an apology with a bunch of their other products for free with expedited shipping.
The rubber does get stuck in my pocket, though. That is my only complaint.
- Easiest case to remove. Useful when I had an olloclip lens that had to be slipped on directly over the iPhone's camera or the first version of Intuit GoPayment card reader with a short audio jack that wouldn't work with a case on.
- Great at protecting the phone. Have dropped phone hard on concrete from a truck that sits high probably 5+ times. No scratches or dings. The rubber is very cushioney and definitely absorbs and disperses the shock. Better than many cheap hard cases that just transfers the shock back into the phone and screen.
- Rubber offers the best type of grip. And I always slip my pointer finger under one of the bands and it acts as a finger loop (and credit card / money / business card holder).
- The grip from the rubber that is great, is not good for putting or pulling out of your pockets.
- After a year and half, the rubber is starting to tear at the seams or joints. But I did get on sale from Wal-Mart for $8. Have gotten money's worth.
