My new favorite gadget is my iPhone. As soon as it became available on my network, I happily dropped a few hundred dollars to get mine. That’s a lot of money to spend on a phone, and I didn’t dream of using it even once before protecting it with a sturdy case.
There are a myriad of options available when it comes to protecting your smartphone, but one brand in particular has received a lot of praise – Speck. I wanted to see for myself what all of the buzz was about, and my iPhone sure needed another “outfit”.
So I was delighted when the folks at Speck sent me a few iPhone cases to check out. Two completely different designs were sent, displaying the true range that they offer their customers.
The PixelSkin HD case for the iPhone4 has a real sporty look along with some impressive features. This case is a one-piece design, which was easier to get on than off. The flexible case covers the on/off and volume buttons on the phone, they function with a little extra might. I thought that was pretty neat if you’re concerned about grit and grime getting into your buttons. The teal color is a great stand-out color when I’m digging through my bottomless bag; the grid texture on the back also helps.
The Fitted Case in Tartan Plaid is more my style. This one is a two piece design that fits together well and is easy as pie to get on and off. I like that the black edging blends in with the phone itself, and the plaid back is classic and sophisticated. I also like that the buttons are uncovered.
