Keep a clear head with the Bounce iPhone 4 case with Pong technology. It is the only technology proven by FCC-certified laboratories to reduce cell phone radiation while maintaining full signal strength. A paper-thin strip deflects radiation away from your head, leaving you with a slender, stylish case with more protection than ever. The Bounce redirects your cell phones electromagnetic energy away from your head. Once redirected, the radiation quickly dissipates and poses no threat to you or those around you. It is proven to reduce hotspot (EFI) radiation by 85%, and overall (SAR) radiation by 60%. The case itself features a silicone design with easy-to-grip ridges. It is a protective case for both your phone and you.
Top Customer Reviews
My first two cases were both made of TPU, not silicone: a Belkin Grip Vue (free from Best Buy after 20% off and redeeming Reward Zone points) and a Griffin Motif (free from Apple's iPhone 4 Case Program). Of the two, the Griffin was superior to the Belkin because the phone's volume buttons were much easier to press through it. With both cases I really liked the TPU material because it has a best-of-both-worlds combination of softness/cushioning (like silicone but firmer) and see-thru/transparency (like clear hard plastic).
Yesterday I received my Case-Mate Bounce Case from Case-Mate via Amazon. I chose black because I was afraid the lighter colors in silicone would get grimy-looking.
What I like about the Bounce:
1. The SAR Reduction - the report on Wired was convincing, especially after they first ridiculed it and then tested it and ate their words:[..] - I no longer feel the need to hold my phone an inch from my head, use the speaker more than absolutely necessary, or avoid keeping it in my pocket.
2. The included screen protector - I hadn't used one before and it was nice to have one included with the case (although I haven't put it on yet).
3. The thickness and cushioning.
4. The ease of pushing the volume buttons (even better than the Griffin).
5. The design on the back.
What I don't like about the Bounce:
1. The silicone material (compared to TPU). It's so soft that, as the other reviewer noted, the unsupported section across the bottom is too flimsy. It's a dust magnet. Its opaqueness hides the attractive back and sides of my phone. If Case-Mate could incorporate the Pong technology into a TPU case it would be a winner. With TPU the Bounce's "wafer thin technology module" might be visible through the case, but maybe that could look even more cool. In spite of the silicone, however, this unique SAR-reducing case makes it all worthwhile.
1. SAR Reduction! This is the biggest factor that led me to buying this product. Wired's 2 reviews were really convincing as they started off saying there's no proof about Casmate's claims, but then later did their own test and said it seems to be valid afterall.
2. The grip and cushion is great. Yes, it does attract more dust than some other cases, but not too extreme.
1. UGLY! I don't know about you but these types of cases seems very generic and not stylish at all. The logo in the back is alright but the wavey shape on the sides and the way they cut out the hole for the camera is somewhat unprofessional.
2. The cushion is good, but with it, it adds to the thickness of the phone enough that you will notice when you try to put this in your pocket. In addition, the grip is great, but it makes it more difficult to put in/out of your pocket. Also, the case somewhat blocks your fingers when you try to swipe past the side of your screen.
3. Price. It's pretty expensive for a case.
Overall, although it is pricey, if the SAR reduction does in fact work, it's well worth it. I'm willing to sacrifice looks for health. I got the black one.
