Being a rather discerning kinda chap, I am rather choosy when it comes to protecting my beloved iPhone with something that is suitable for the job. I own a lot of cases and I do mean a LOT!!, and tend to change my cases on a regular basis depending on the type of environment I am subjecting my iPhone to (accessories etc).
I actually stumbled across this case in a well known supermarket and was very impressed with the design and feel of the case. Play.com are selling this for exactly the same price that I payed for it, so well done again to Play.com.
The case is made of a very sturdy type of rubber that is not as soft as other rubber cases on the market, which is a really GOOD thing, but it is quite pliable. This means that when you put it in your pocket or on the table etc it does not attract fluff, dust and lint.
The case can take a little time to put on, just be patient and ease it on slowly (I foung the best way was to fit the top of the iPhone first, being careful to sit the Silent/Ringer switch into the cutout and then easing the sides in and then finishing off on the bottom) once on the fit is absolutely brilliant with no play at all and the case allows all the functionality of the iPhone, including: Camera, Volume Up/Down buttons on the side of the phone and the Sleep/Wake button on the top through the case. The Silent Ringer switch is exposed to allow it to be toggled back and forth, but it is very well protected from any bumps etc, by being recessed.
There is excellent access to the 30 Pin Dock connector for charging/syncing etc, and the slot is elongated to allow the Mic and Speaker to be free from being covered. The case even allows the SIM Card tray to be removed with the case fitted also.
The standard Apple headphone jack fits through the case perfectly.
The case has a 'lay on the table' design and allows the iPhone to be placed screen side down onto a table if needed, without touching the screen and it covers the chrome bezel to avoid scratches.
I really can't praise this case enough and it is one that I have been in search of for a very long time to be honest, and for the price.. who can argue!
If you are looking for a robust case that does not take away the iPhones quality looks and allows full access to all of the features of the iPhone, then i would rate this case as the best rubber case that is on the market today!
Well done Pro-tec
