The Best iPhone Case

A little back story on my iPhone case journey. I am not an easy person to please when it comes to my iPhone cases, through the different versions of the iPhone and continuing with the iPhone 4, I have gone through no less that a dozen different cases. I wanted something that looked good, protected my phone good, and was not bulky at all.

Thankfully after years of searching I have finally found my perfect case, a case that I have finally stuck with longer than a week. The perfect combination of a slim minimal look, pretty decent protection & a price that be can’t be beat.

What is this perfect case, it is the elago S4 Slim Fit.  So why do I love this case. For starters it’s about $10 bucks on Amazon and comes in about a dozen different colors, so you have a lot of choices, and for what you would normally pay for a normal case at the Apple store you could get three different colors to match your changing moods, if that's what you're in to.

Yes the case is on in this picture

Next there’s the elago S4’s incredibly slim fit, it is thin, and that slim minimal looks good on the iPhone, after all Apple products are designed to be minimal. Nothing kills the looks of your iPhone like a big hulking case, no matter what the color. The case also adds some extra grip and actually makes the iPhone better and easier to hold in your hand.

So is there a downside to this case? Kinda, depending on how you look at it, you do sacrifice a bit of protection to get the slim good looks. If you take look at the pictures I posted, there is no lip over the edge of the iphone's front screen, which means that if you dropped it at the perfect angle (directly straight down) it could still crack the screen. Whether or not that is a compromise you're willing to make is up to you, for me adding decent protection compared to having no case at all, while keeping streamlined looks was worth it. Also, the plastic of the case is not super thick, so you are not going to get the same type of protection that you would get from something like an Otterbox case.

In short, it looks good, the price is awesome, and to top it off it’s one of the highest rated case on Amazon. It's great for those that want a minimalist case design, a good price with decent protection. 

I highly recommend this case and it is the case that I have been using for the last few months! 


I hope you found this review helpful, please let me know if you have any other suggestions for iPhone cases. 


  1. hi, thanks for the useful review! I just wanted to ask what color the case/cases pictured above are.

    1. The case is the white one. However, after using if for several months while working in a restaurant, the white does seem to stain a bit, so depending on your environment, you may want to go with a darker color. I also have the Black one, and the new S2 version in silver.

  2. I've generally liked posting my shows with you and connecting from my site.Much obliged for your numerous years of an incredible administration well done! debloquer SFR

Cure EM (Erythromelalgia)

So as I mentioned in a previous post, my wife (Tracey) has Erythromelagia (EM for short). I am going to try and sum up this condition and how it has affected our lives in as short of a blurb as I can. Here it goes...

Picture from my wife's blog- i'm (not) superhuman
This condition began to show up around May of 2010 when my wife's feet would randomly swell, turn red, get hot to the touch and become extremely painful. She describes it as being lit on fire. It is actually considered one of the most painful conditions out there. It is also very rare, which is why we brought the diagnosis to our primary care doctor. And for us it was just one more problem on a long list of things that had happened to Tracey's health over the past few years.

At first the flares were fairly infrequent, and she mostly noticed them when it was pretty warm out or when she had been walking for a while. Over the past 10 months, EM has taken control of every part of our lives. Tracey now has to work…

This is healthy...No this is...

For years I've been trying to eat healthy with self admitted terrible success... And this post is not to blame anyone, because honestly I have no one to blame but myself for my mostly poor eating habits.

What this is about, is the frustration of eating "healthy"... At my most recent count I believe there is approximately twelve million different diets or ideas on how to "eat healthy"... about 3 times as many as there are actual food items in existence! For every food item it seems there is at least one diet, book or person saying it is good, and at least one saying it is not good...Or at least this is how it feels sometimes.

So my question is this, how do you choose what is actually good, how do you move past the confusion? I have read so many different books and theories, all of which sound so great while reading them, until you read the next one that is either a slight variation (at best) or the complete opposite of what you just read... and of course is just…

Panera Bread: Açaí Berry Iced Tea

Why I got it:

Had some time to kill and it looked refreshing. It is a regular fountain drink on the menu as well so it has free refills.

Cost: $1.79

Quick Thoughts:

It was inexpensive and refreshing with just the perfect hint of berry. I prefer mine unsweetened but you can add sugar if you would like.

Would I Get This Again:



The combination of cost and refreshment was perfect. I love good iced tea. There regular black tea is also very good but this was the first time I've seen this flavor here.

Where have you found good Iced tea?
