Plastic frame cracked within 2 weeks!
on October 12, 2012
*UPDATE* Plastic has broken off to the point of uselessness. I was outdoors when it broke and my iPhone slipped out of the case and dropped on a cobblestones, severely damaging the rear-facing camera. Now I need to go to Apple for repairs since the camera no longer functions correctly. The takeaway? AVOID THIS PRODUCT AT ALL COSTS! It will only lead to way more trouble than it's worth!
I was so excited to receive this case just a few days after ordering it! The leather is good quality for the price, and the phone fits snugly in the plastic frame. The openings line up well and I don't have any issues charging, plugging in headphones, or reaching any buttons.
My main complaint about the case is that within a week of using the case, the plastic frame has cracked in the upper right hand corner. My phone stays in the frame snugly for now, but I know it won't be long before the corner breaks off and I'm left with a useless case. I know for certain that I didn't drop the phone/case, and I'm pretty gentle with my things (especially when it comes to a new iPhone!). I didn't even try to take out the phone from the frame, so I can't imagine how it got cracked other than a) it's not the right size for the phone, b) it had a hairline crack to begin with, or c) it's just poor quality plastic.
Either way, I really question the longevity of the case (considering that I'm less than 2 weeks in to owning it and I'm already searching for another one). It might be worth it to just spend a little more for a case that'll last.
