    I have had few types of iPhone 4 bumpers and cases and they all seem to offer different strengths and weaknesses. Here are my thoughts on this particular case:

    Pros:
    1)Increases the wireless signal by about half a bar or so. Considering many bumpers don’t offer any signal boost or even lower it, this case does a goob job of enhancing (at least not blocking) iPhone’s signals.
    2)Slim and elegant design. This case feel great and has a very slim form factor.
    3)Allows non-apple cable plug-ins. Many bumpers and cases are designed only for the Apple cables, this one is not one of them.

    Cons:
    1)Doesn’t protect the front glass (except with the vinyl plastic). Even with this case on, if you drop your iPhone 4 on a hard concrete surface you may still have the front panel completely cracked. My other $5 bumper (not case) does a much better job of protecting my iPhone 4 in all sides when dropped.
    2)Completely covers the back, so if you are using a CPU intensive application, such as Tom Tom navigation, your iPhone will overheat. This won’t be a problem for most uses and phone calls. But if you are using a very CPU intensive application, your iPhone will definitely get hot and the back cover will act as an insulatior, which will not be good for your iPhone.
    3)Scratches fairly easily. This case is designed to be soft and not hard.

    There are tons of other similar looking cases such as this and they all probably share similar flaws as this one. So if you are willing to live with the fundamental flaws, then this case is as good as any.

    So I am a iPhone fan who recently purchased the 4S. I was disappointed to learn that there was a slight external change that rendered all of my previous cases unusable, I tend to buy the slim fit cases as it preserves the profile of this phone.

    This case was a pleasant surprise. It fits the phone wonderfully and the way that the side slot for the buttons and the mute switch is cut allows it to work perfectly with the 4S. The color also rocks! I would (and have) recommended this to friends and coworkers!

    Perfect Slim Case for iPhone 4, July 26, 2011

    I have had my white iPhone 4 since it came out and I have had a hard time finding a case that wasn’t to bulky but also was a good match for the color of the phone. After looking around at other products like this such as the Incipio Feather and CaseMate Barely There. However I want something that was a soft touch and had a good color contrast for for the white. This was a PERFECT match. The “jean” blue makes a great color contrast off the white and still shows off the white iPhone enough. Very easy to hold and grip as well as fits the phone perfectly. Have not dropped it yet *knocks on wood* so I can’t comment on protection but I was more concerned about the back of the phone getting scratched up from putting it on tables and such and this protects against that perfectly.

    If you want and minimalistic case that fits the iPhone 4 great and looks good while doing it, don’t look anywhere else… get this!

    Decent, With a Few Flaws, November 23, 2011
    By

    This review is from: Apple iPhone 4s (16gb, LOCKED to AT&T, BLACK) (Electronics)

    Having the 4S for over a month now, I’ve decided to write down my opinions of the phone. Starting off, when I first got the phone, I was very skeptical because when I had read the new advancements and features of the phone, they didn’t sound too amazing to me. The first few days I had it, I was switching from my iPhone 4 and 4S. Then things started to stand out more.

    Pros:

    -It’s sleek solid build of the phone.

    -The A5 chip processor that is claimed to be twice the iPhone 4’s speed is amazingly fast and for a heavy data user, it is very appealing.

    -The 8MP camera. The new camera with much more editing features takes pictures with amazing precision. A few times I would just use my phone over my other digital cameras/camcorders.

    -Siri. As a heavy traveler, Siri has helped me with so many things. I’ve used Siri to schedule appointments, ask stupid questions, answer text messages/emails, and ask it to use the GPS to find places and help with the routes. The problem with Siri is that when in crowded places, the microphone picks up way too much of the excess noise around you and is not functional.

    Cons:

    -Battery life. The battery on the 4S is horrible! I’m a heavy user so I can only get about half a day of battery time with my phone. I have resorted to external battery cases, but the bulkiness of the case is overwhelming and sometimes I feel like I have a rock in my pocket. When my phone is on standby it seems to drain just as fast as it would when I’m using it. A few times it seemed as if it was losing almost 5% of battery life every 10 minutes!

    -Freezing. For some reason my 4S tends to freeze a lot. Now rebooting it may only take a few quick minutes and not be a bother to some, but sometimes the freezing lasts more than an hour! It may be just my model of the phone, but I’m not too sure on that matter.

    Conclusion:

    Now, the iPhone 4S is a decent phone, but in my opinion, it’s overrated. The retail price I bought it for was around $700. $700 for this phone is outrageous. The prices seem to be dropping, but if I had had the experience with the phone before I had bought it, I would not have bought the phone for any more than $550. I tried to compare the 4S with a few of my androids, but the two phones are just too different. If I had to choose between an android and a iPhone 4S, then I would probably go with the android since an android is just as fast maybe even faster, and I the price range is about $300-$600. Now, if you own an iPhone 3gs or lower and want to upgrade to an iPhone 4S, this is the phone for you. iPhone 4 users, it’s your choice. For serious phone users you may need the extra speed this phone gives. For people who aren’t so serious, the 4S is there but does not exactly stand as your top priorities.

    Great phone, poor battery life., November 13, 2011

    The battery life on this iPhone is disappointing. The features are great, it is super fast, but not being able to make it through a day without charging is unacceptable. I did the update to iOS 5.0.1 but that doesn’t help. If they solve the battery issue this would be an awesome phone.
