Case-Mate Carbon Fiber + Signature Case Review For iPhone 3G

Hello Everybody! Today I will review two very similar cases by Case-Mate. The Carbon Fiber Leather Shell and the Signature Leather Case for the iPhone 3G. The difference in these two? Materials. The two cases are pretty much exactly the same except one is made from Carbon Fiber and the other is made from Leather. The Carbon Fiber Case is available in black, white or silver, while the Signature Leather Case is available in white, black, red (looks more like orange), black with some strange holes, pink and green.

Otterbox Defender Case for iPhone 3G Review!

Hey guys! This is a review on the Otterbox Defender case for the iPhone 3G, and I was waiting a long time to get my hands on one of these. Their customer service is really quick at answering. Thanks to the person over at Otterbox who helped me make this review possible! Also, I definitely do not recommend this case to people who take their iPhone out a lot, because you need to perfect the built-in screen protector.

Anyway the Otterbox is made out of 3 pieces. A front piece, a back part the slides onto it, and a silicone that covers the plastic. The silicone feels really high quality, and even though the case is actually really thick , Otterbox made the Defender case feel great in the hand.

Case Mate Clear Armor Review

Hey Everyone! This is going to be a review on the Clear Armor by case-mate. Now I have just applied this armor and noticed many things about it, but I will update this post after time

First of all I would like to say that clear armor covers less than they show on their website. It covers the sides and their bezel, but only goes down the to dock connector and sleep/wake button, so basically it exposes just as much as the gelaskins, but is much harder to apply. On their website they show that it covers around the dock and sleep/wake button, but that is false, or I may have a defective product.

Application

The application process on here was terrible. It took me 2 hours, and I failed and had to throw out one of my clear armors and failed pretty miserably on the second. I got the corners down on the third hour, and was pretty much pleased, but I have some air bubbles that will not go away for sure, and the armor is kind of foggy. I will post pictures after 48 hours when Case-Mate says the armor should clear up. Also one more thing, when you are peeling away from the backing you have to sort of punch out the cutouts, which is probably what ruined my first shield. While peeling back the film from the backing, hold the cutouts out with something small like your squeegee. There is one for the camera hole and volume rocker.

Speck SwitchWay Review

Hello Everyone! Today’s review will be covering the Speck SwitchWay for the iPhone 3G , which is priced at 35$, but they are having a halloween sale which ends 11/2/08 so get it for only 17$ fast! Also, I would like to thank Speck for sending me this case, they are really taking care of me, I didn’t even ask them for this case and they shipped it out anyway.

The SwitchWay has a really strange design. It is basically for people who cannot decide whether they want to hold their iPhone vertically or horizontally. It really doesn’t make much sense to me, since you must prefer one of the other, and the case sacrifices some thing to allow you to hold it both ways.

The SwitchWay has two flaps that allow you to slide in your iPhone 3G either way. On the opposite side of the flap, there is a belt clip that allows you to hold it on your belt (obviously). The case is sort of like two pieces of material together, Nylon and “Vegetarian Leather”, which I am guessing means synthetic leather. They do a good job of stitching it together, and I actually rather like the yellow stitching they used. Also the case smells terrible, you can smell its horrid nylon stench from 2 meters away, but it luckily fades out after a day.

Accessory Review: Proporta Perfora

Hello Everyone! This is a review on the Proporta Perfora for the iPhone 3G. This review is going to be very short, since it is a basic accessory, but will still include everything you need to know.

The Perfora comes in a nice box, but unfortunately includes nothing inside other than the case. The case is a type of slide it in and fold it, and has magnetic latches. That is what frightened me, I had very bad experiences when magnets when I was small, and I don’t really want them to be near any electronic device. It has a very nice clip on the back, which is non removable but it is actually very sturdy. The whole case is made from 100% green leather, and it smells like real leather as well. The case is actually a very high quality, but has some downsides. It will not fit a case, and is not very resistant to cold weather. I found that after it was in the cold for some time the leather stiffened up and stop stretching, but you probably wont store your iPhone in such cold temperatures anyway.

GelaSkins For iPhone 3G Review!

Hello Everyone. Today’s review is for the GelaSkins for iPhone 3G. I thank GelaSkins for donating some of their skins to me. They sent me two designs, Ink Pond and Landscape XIX, as well as GelaScreens. We will be giving away the Ink Pond GelaSkin. I have used the GelaScreens and can honestly say they are nice screen protectors. Also in this review I am using my camera’s macro function so tell me if you like it!

Anyway, the GelaSkins came in this nice white, cardboard envelope. With each GelaSkin I think you get an included GelaScreen, but I am not sure. They come in very nice packaging, inside a small plastic bag and in there is a piece of cardboard with your GelaSkin. There is also a link to the website on the back where you can go to and receive your free matching wallpaper (or any wallpaper you like).

Aevoe Moshi iPouch Review

Hello Everyone. Today we are going to review the Moshi iPouch by Aevoe. I would like to thank Aevoe for donating me this case for review. They have very fast shipping (came in 2 days), and their customer support is really nice and replies quickly. The packaging that the pouch came in was really nice. I could tell these people were not joking, it really looked official. Also it is a nice cardboard packaging, so you can recycle it and do your part to save the environment. The pouch comes with the actually pouch, as well as a lanyard that you can attach through a hoop on the pouch and wear it on your neck.

Speck SeeThru For iPhone 3G Review

Hello Everyone!

Today I will be doing a review on the Speck SeeThru for the iPhone 3G. I would like to thank Speck for donating this case to me for review.

The Speck SeeThru is a slider-like design. The top piece separated take up about 3/5ths of the case. The bottom piece, which is also a movie stand, joins into the upper piece and slides its rails on an empty space and locks into place. The first thing I noticed when I got this case is that it is a scratch magnet. It scratches like crazy, in the first 5 minutes I had it, it got scuffed up like crazy, just like the silver back of an iPod. The case is transparent, and is offered in different tinted colors.
