Specifications

The Moshi iGlaze 4 is a very small and thin case measuring 4.6" x 2.4" x 0.4". It will fit the iPhone 4 from AT&T or Verizon. It comes in black, white, gray, red, and purple colors. The case is available right now for $25.

In Use

I dropped my iPhone 3GS and broke the screen carrying it with no case a long time ago. I decided that I would always keep my iPhone 4 in a case to better protect the smartphone. The thing I hate about cases is that they all tend to add a lot of bulk to the iPhone and make it hard to get the phone in and out of my pocket, especially when sitting down in the car.

When the Moshi iGlaze 4 showed up I could tell that the thing was a very minimalist design. It undoubtedly gives up some protection to other larger and bulkier cases for the smartphone, but it makes up for some of that loss of protection with much less bulk. The case snaps on the back of the iPhone 4 and it doesn't quite reach to sit flush with the front glass. To be honest I fear dropping it just right might have your iPhone hitting the screen on the ground. It doesn't wrap around the front of the iPhone 4 at all to offer any protection to the screen.

You will need a scratch protection film to keep your screen safe. The case comes in multiple colors and has a very smooth and nice feel to it. I like the smooth finish because it allows the iPhone to slide in and out of my pocket with little resistance. That means I can remove the phone from my pocket when sitting down without hassle.

The back of the case has cutouts for the Apple logo and the camera. All of the ports are left uncovered and I can dock the iPhone 4 with my alarm clock at night with the case on. Of all the cases, that I have used this one adds the least bulk to my iPhone. It really feels just like it does without a case installed in my hands and in my pocket. The case does come with a buffer film to help protect the backside.

Verdict

Pros

  • Easy to install
  • Very little bulk
  • Feels like nothing is on the iPhone

Cons

  • Offers less protection than other cases with more bulk
  • Screen is exposed
 

Conclusion

The Moshi iGlaze 4 is the perfect case for the iPhone 4 user willing to risk less protection for less bulk.
