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!

    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.
