iPhone Silicon Cover
Advantages: cheap, effective, hardwearing, wipes clean
Disadvantages: Offers minimal protection to the screen
I am very much of the opinion that most times you get what you pay for and to be honest I did not have that many high hopes for something that only cost £1.
I am pleased to report that this phone cover is one of the best covers I have ever had. The cover that I bought was white, which in my opinion looks very retro and suits the iPhone perfectly! The cover itself is silicon, having tried different covers I found that the silicon one was the best as the material itself is very flexible and soft.
The case design is very impressive and it did not hinder me from using the touch screen functions on my phone. The cover was very easy to slip onto the iPhone and this is extremely handy as sometimes you need to take the cover on and of for changing the sim card. I found no hassle or problems with doing this and as far as phone covers go, found the cover extremely easy to use.
I do not feel that the cover distorted any communications that I made on the phone and I was perfectly able to hear callers speaking to me and they could hear me speaking clearly to them. In my opinion this element is very important when choosing a phone cover as there is no point in having a cover on a phone that takes away from any of the functions that the phone already performs, and this cover certainly did not take away from any sound or speech.
Another important element for me when choosing a phone cover is the protection that it affords the phone. My iphone itself cost me nearly £400 so I did feel a bit guilty buying a £1 cover for it, but when I initially got the phone I purchased a hard cover that cost me £40 only for someone to call me and the phone vibrated off the table and the cover smashed!
You would think that this incident would have taught me a lesson, but since then my iPhone has bounced off the table, fell out of my pocket and been knocked out of my hand, in my opinion along with the durability of the iPhone itself, the silicon cover was the only thing that saved the phone from getting scratched.
The only drawback that I can possibly find with the iPhone silicon cover is that, as the iPhone is a touch screen phone, the screen is not covered by anything, and the cover itself is an open cover.
However, if the iPhone is on a flat surface there is a lip of a couple of millimeters, around the screen offering it a slight bit of protection. If you are buying this cover, I would suggest that when you are putting your phone into your bag or pocket to be careful that you do not have change or keys or anything near the phone that will scrape the screen of it as it will not be protected fully by this cover.
The silicon cover protects the back of the iPhone fully and just slips on like a soft glove. I have taken the cover off my phone on numerous occasions and to be honest I was worried about the cover stretching out of shape as it is a tight fit already. I cannot see any difference in the cover since the day I bought it and it does not appear to have stretched at all.
I would certainly recommend this phone cover to anyone who has recently purchased an iPhone and totally give it 5/5, if you can get it for a quid in the pound shop its even a bigger bonus!
However, as I already said the only concern that I had about the product was that I just had to be careful that I did not accidentally scrape the screen with anything.
