  Best budget case around!!

| | See all tycoon00's reviews (2)

Okay so I've had this case for 8 months now. To start with, let me clarify, if you pay more money you will get a better quality product. But, for 10 pounds this is a bargain.

The pro's:
It fits properly, needs effort to remove so your phone won't fall out even if held upside down.

While it retains its colour, it looks much more expensive than you know it is.

Even after the tab falls off (i tug quite hard and that did take its toll over time, but did last 6 months) it still works, you just need to shake it. In my opinion I prefer the case without the tab anyway.

The con's:
As I said, the tab did come off and if that appeals to you you need to face up to the fact you may need to buy 2/3 of these over a 2 year lifespan of the phone.

The colour has now faded slightly, but it's more the black fading on the areas the metal edges of the phone are.

Verdict:

I think this case is ideal. It's cheap. This means if you lost the case or damaged it, you won't be kicking yourself, like you would if you spent 40+ pounds on a designer one. It's a no frills, protective leather case which makes putting it in your pocket no bigger than if it was just the phone in there. Also, some reviewers have said buy screen protectors, there really is no need. the felt like material on the inside is really good, my iPhone is still in pristine condition.

  Excellent Quality Snug Fitting Case

This is the second Exspect Case (3GS & 4) I have purchased and have been very impressed with the quality of the Case, the leather is really good quality and smells lovely, it is a very nice snug fit and fits the iPhone 4 like a glove adding very little extra bulk. Managed to pick this up off Play.com for a fiver delivered so well impressed, was tempting to get a spare at that price.

  Excellent while new

Great case for the first 6 months, but myself and three others i know with this case have the same issue once it gets a little old it stretches and in my case my phone fell out while holding the case in my hand. Dropping the phone out of the case defeated the object of having a case.

Really nice product otherwise but be prepared to need to replace the case during the life of the phone.

  Great at the price

At the GBP6.99 I paid this gets 5 stars. It doesn't add much bulk and fits perfectly. Better than anything I saw in the Apple Store.

At the RRP of GBP19.99 I'd expect slightly better leather. Feels tough enough, but looks a bit too much like the plastic case that came with my Blackberry Curve. Smells like leather though, and imagine it will wear nicely.

In conclusion, you can buy this with confidence. I'm tempted to also get the brown one before the price goes back up.

  Great value case

Having got used to slip cases on other recent phones, I was determined to find a decent one again for my new iPhone4. This one fits the bill perfectly - phone inserts snugly, but is easily and safely removed via pull-tab, and it feels solid and well-built yet keeps a low profile. Slight downsides - doesn't give an appearance of a high quality leather (though doesn't look or feel cheap either), and the pull-tab doesn't retract itself inside after use as I've see others do, but at such a low price-point, it is still brilliant value!

  Nice case

Very nice case...snug fit...no scratches...pull cord to get your iphone out...exactly what I wanted...A*

  Good price, decent product...

I think this is a good price for a decent product, real leather and it looks well made. My only issues are the fact that the whole top of your iphone is let exposed (which is a given really, with any slip case), but anyway, with buttons and the headphone jack exposed I just feel that it could have been better designed. I don't feel my iphone is particularly well protected in this case - but it's good enough until the free case comes!

  Good case

This is a really good case, nice snug fit with good quality leather.

The back of the case has a pull tab which allows you to get the phone out quite quickly. I would reccomend you get a screen protector for both the front and back of the phone if your using this case, as without this you will more than likely end up scratching your phone taking it in and out of the case over time.

Overall I would reccomend the case as it is stylish cheap and simple to use. If you dont want a plastic box or silicone phone condom covering your beloved Iphone 4 this is the case for you!

Superb quality, real leather, touch stitching, snug fit, and adds little extra bulk. Great protection for your iPhone 4.
