Cath Kidston iPhone 4 case

Advantages: Keeps iPhone secure, very cute
My iPhone is by far one of the most expensive items that I own, and it is also an item that I take out with me everyday, meaning that it gets shoved in my bag, stuck in my pocket or balanced on my knee when i'm on the bus/train. I have never really been a fan of the iPhone cases, as most of the ones that i've come across look quite tacky and common if that makes sense, and I preferred my iPhone without the case. A few months ago though after upgrading to the latest iPhone 4, I was reccomended by a guy in the orange shop to get atleast a silicone case for it as iPhones aren't the most robust - my iPhone is probably the most sensetive and non-sturdy phone i've owned. I decided to purchase a basic silicone case that was nice and discreet from Amazon, and set out in search for one. While browsing though, I came across the Cath Kidston iPhone case and I fell in love! There was only one left in stock (according to the seller, anyway) so I added it to my Amazon basket and checked out as soon as possible.
The iPhone case is widely available, it can be purchased from John Lewis, the official Cath Kidston website/in store Cath Kidston or via various websites including Amazon. The phone case comes packaged nicely, it had a clear front that acts as a window and the packaging is easy to open. This is described as a designer hard back iPhone case, and some product descriptions refer to it as a lacquered shell. The case is made of lightweight, good quality plastic which is smooth to the touch. I was quite concerned that the case would scratch easily due to the material it's made from, however i've had this case for over a month now and it's not got any noticeable scratches, it has a few very minor scratches from where i've put it on a hard surface etc, but none are noticeable unless I look very closely.
The case was easy to put onto my phone, it simply snapped into place and it fitted perfectly. It didn't cover any of the screen or the little round button at the bottom, and it has a gap where the camera goes, it was a perfect fit and it looked really neat. The case doesn't add a noticeable amount of weight to my phone, nor does it bulk it out. There are plenty of different eye catching patterns to choose from, there are the usual 'classic' Cath Kidston prints such as birds, polka dots, stars, etc and there are a few more newish patterns such as red roses, buses, cars and a few more - the choice is pretty big which I like as normally with Cath Kidston products there are only three or four different patterns for one particular item where as with this there are around 8 different designs to choose from.
I own this in the london bus design, it's amazingly cute and unusual and very vintage/indie, the colour scheme is predominantly blue with a big red bus on it along with the london eye, big ben, trees, flowers, etc. The cath kidston logo is on the side of the bus and it's also on the bottom of the case, showing that it's a genuine Cath Kidston product. I love how bright the colour scheme is as that way my phone is instantly reconiseable. As well as making my iPhone look very colourful and cute, it also protects it really well. I am quite clumsy and often drop my phone by mistake (including when i'm laid in bed holding it above my face, d'oh!) or throw it into my bag without thinking, and this case protects the phone really well. I have dropped my phone once since having this case and neither the phone or case were damaged.
I have read a couple of reviews on the Cath Kidston website of people having issues with the design coming off and complaining that the quality is poor, however I think the quality is brilliant! The case does not interfere with the sensetivity of my iPhone screen or anything like that, it simply keeps it secure. The only downside to this product is the price - the RRP is a ridiculous £24.95, however as I bought mine from Amazon I paid £18 and I was lucky enough to get it technically free with my Dooyoo Amazon voucher! Overall, a lovely, very eye catching, good quality iPhone 4 case. It's a little expensive but in my opinion it is worth it!!
Summary: A stylish iPhone case
