Specifications

The iFrogz iPhone 4 Luxe Lean will fit the AT&T and Verizon iPhone 4 smartphones. The case is very slim and comes in multiple colors for $24.99. The case is made from polycarbonate and protects from impacts and scratches.

In Use

I like to keep a case on my iPhone 4, but I don't like to have a case on my smartphone that adds tons of bulk to the device. Fat cases make it hard to get the phone in and out of my pocket. I also don't like that some of cases on the market have grippy surfaces that catch on my pocket making it hard to get out. Fat and sticky cases are particularly irritating when I am driving and try to get my iPhone out of my pocket.

The iFrogz iPhone 4 Luxe Lean is a very thin and slippery case that comes in and out of the pocket easily even when sitting down. The case is designed to work with the Verizon and the AT&T iPhone 4. It has cooling grates on the side and it looks really nice as well. The case leaves all of the ports and buttons exposed.

It's also thin enough that I can dock my iPhone 4 with the case on using my alarm clock dock. Some cases are too thick to allow the iPhone to be docked without removing the case first. The outside of the case is a soft touch plastic. I suspect that it may show scratches pretty badly after a while. Most cases made from this type of plastic do.

I like that the back of the case is solid, I have another case from XtremeMac that is very similar to this the iFrogz iPhone 4 Luxe Lean, but the XtremeMac offering has a circle cutout around the Apple logo. That cut out allows dirt and debris to get inside the case leading to scratches.

The case is offered in green, white, red, pink, light blue, green, grey, dark blue, and black colors. The variety of colors is very nice and allows the user to customize the phone to their personal style. The case presses onto the iPhone and is easy to install and remove if needed.

Verdict

Pros

  • Easy install
  • Good looks
  • Thin

Cons

  • Might show scratches
 

Conclusion

This very nice, thin cases will protect your iPhone and adds little bulk. I like cases such as this that are easy to remove form your pocket when sitting or driving.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
