Great, not perfect, and a bit pricey
on October 3, 2014
I really like this case because it goes on and comes off quite easily (but it stays on without any issues). The profile is thin (not the thinnest, but pretty damn thin). The edges are raised so you can actually place your phone face down and it shouldn't scratch the surface.
My two major gripes with this product comes in the bottom half of the case and the price. As far as the lower half of the case is concerned, I wish the opening for the lightning input took adapters into account. You know how everything switched over to the lightning cable? Yeah, I wasn't about to buy all new cables because I got a new phone so I bought an adapter to keep using my old cables.
It's equally as much my own fault for not investing in the new cables, but it's a shame that most cases don't take this into consideration. I have to take my case off any time I want to charge it with one of my old cables so I've left my adapter at home so I can take my case off when I charge it at night. I've replaced my car cable with a new lightning cord so I don't have to take the case off while on the go.
This case is wonderful and basic, but that makes me really question why the price is so high. I bought it because I've had great experiences with my old Speck PixelSkin HD for my iPhone 4. Back then, it was free because of the whole antenna fiasco. I wish this case was $10 and not $20, but I bit the bullet because it's still a solid case and I had an Amazon gift card..
