The case is very thin, almost too thin on first examination. However this proves to be what makes this case so great in the first place. Initially I was skeptical of its durability, however I feel that the thin plastic material it is made out of makes the case very sleek and not disruptive of the phone's form and inherent use. This is not a bulky case, which is very important to me. I like my phone to slip into my pocket easily and stay there, both physically and aesthetically. This case is so thin and sleek that it doesnt make the phone really any larger by any noticeable means. This was one complaint that I had with the countless other iPhone cases I have owned in the past-they always add so much bulk to the physical footprint of the phone. This case does not.
While I was skeptical of the thin material at first, it has since proven to keep the phone adequately protected. I have dropped the phone several times since I purchased this case, both on softer surfaces (carpeting) and hard surfaces (concrete) in which the phone landed on its face, back, and corners. This case has done a fantastic job of keeping the phone protected and scratch free. The material is thick where it counts: on the corners, edges, and most importantly-on the edge that surrounds the face. This edge is critical to protecting the glass face of the phone, and this case has proven to me time and time again that the tiny (1-2mm) edge extension surrounding the face is the perfect height to protect the screen from accidental drops.Read more ›
Pros: Really nice-looking.
Cons: The one time I drop my phone in a parking lot, *yes* the phone was perfectly protected, but the corner of the case looked really chewed on afterward (that must be where it hit). It cracked, and now pieces have fallen off that corner. All those skinny bits=too fragile. Now I don't trust the case, and I have to buy a new one.
The whole point of a case is to protect the phone if it falls. Even if you are careful, gravity happens. Two months is way too short a life span for a phone case! (My old 3G case was a boring hard plastic shell that flew apart every time I dropped it. Annoying? Yeah, but that was how it dispersed the impact and protected the phone, and the phone and the case lasted forever.)
I love the aesthetics of the Bird's Nest, but I shouldn't be shopping for a new one so soon.
It did crack in the top right corner in the first 24 hours no real reason. It wasn't being put on or removed and wasn't dropped. Just bumped...
That said, this is a really good-looking case, and I haven't had any issues with paint chipping off either case, which makes me wonder if some of the reviewers are being sold knock-off cases. You will get a ton of compliments on this case, and I hang out with design people of all stripes, from fashion designers for major labels to architects, graphic designers and painters. Everyone I know has an iPhone, so the case is the thing. The only case that tops this one is a friend's whose iPhone is now ensconced in solid brass and the case is riveted together. That's hard to top, but this case will set you back many less bones and won't send you to the chiropractor.

Best looking case out there IMO. I just replaced it, because the previous one had broken (after multiple iPhone saving drops)Published on April 9, 2013 by Simon Robinson
