      buy cheaply..

      I bought this case over a year ago for my 3GS. I found it for £20 off Amazon and am happy with it so far. Other than the usual wear and tear it has protected my phone from a few drops on to concrete and held up well.
      As with many cases , it does the give the phone a slightly bulkier feel, but on the other hand makes it easier to grip in comparision to the 'naked' phone. I have seen this case for more money online, I would shop around and maybe get one on Ebay If I were you and not spend more than £20.

      The only clear negative I can tell is that you get what you pay for, it does not exude the quality feel of some other cases out there so it really depends on how important your phone is to you. I wouldnt buy this case if I had just bought a Iphone 4 for example.

      3/5

      Once I got my iphone and I realised the impact it had on my bank account (I bought it on a bit of an impulse!) I realised that this was something I was going to have to look after and I needed something to protect it from scratches and breakages - especially as I've seen a lot of broken smashed screen iphones!

      I looked around for a case for a while but I wanted to get one there and then and so didn't want to buy online. I got this one from Currys and I now realised I paid way over the odds and I could have got it cheaper online. I paid about £15 and it was on clearance from about £30. This was a while ago though and to be honest I don't regret buying it. If you want one though, try Amazon and some online places as it can be got for much cheaper!

      The phone case is solid plastic so it provides adequate protection for the phone. It has a sleek design and it has rough plastic which is good because it gives you a grippy surface for when you're holding the phone. The cover is black like on the picture and it so it really fits in with the phone but it doesn't really give you the opportunity to plaster your personality over the phone like some people like to.

      The case comes in two parts which you slide over the phone and these fit the phone really well, and it is snug so the two parts don't start to come off in pocket or anything and they only come off if you really pull at them.

      A nice feature of the case is that the edge sits few mm's above screen, so if you drop phone onto flat surface it protects screen without but it does make it a bit bulkier in your pocket and there is no need for a separate screen protector which could affect the screen clarity.

      The chunky design of the case means that it's sturdy but can make phone feel bulky. When you take case off you'll be surprised at how small and sleek just the phone is and it is a shame that the case takes away from the design of it a bit.

      Apart from the chunkiness of the case, the only negative thing about the phone is that there is a part at front bottom which is really thin and therefore vulnerable to damage. Mine just snapped at one end, and then I caught it every time I put it in my pocket and eventually it broke off. This is annoying when I spent a lot on the case because I expect it to last and not break and now it has a sharp edge which is annoying.
      Overall this does protect my phone well and it is still in great quality underneath it is just a shame it broke on me.
