Specifications

The Trtl Bot Minimalist for iPhone 4 comes in black, green, blue, and white colors. It is designed to work with any iPhone 4 model and has a spot on the back for up to three credit or ID cards. The case is made in the USA and will protect the iPhone 4 from damage. The case measures 4.53" L x 2.43" w x 0.61" T and sells for $29.95.

In Use

My review sample of the Trtl Bot Minimalist for iPhone 4 is the black version and it is well made and fits the iPhone 4 snugly. My AT&T iPhone 4 has plenty of space near the controls so it will fit the Verizon iPhone 4 as well. The iPhone snaps into the case and the front edge sticks up slightly over the screen of the iPhone. That means when you lay your iPhone on the screen the lip keeps the screen from rubbing directly on the surface.

The downside to that lip is that it can be uncomfortable on your ear. The square edge is not comfortable in some positions. The big feature of this case is the cardholder on the back. The holder is made from the same black material as the rest of the case. When Trtl Bot says two or three cards that is exactly what they mean. One card will not be held snugly enough by the little flaps of the holder to stay put.

Two cards will fit with no issues and when you add a third card, it gets a bit packed and can be challenging to get cards in and out of the case. After using, the case for a few days the flaps did loosen up a bit and it was easier to get in and out of the case. I found the easiest way for me to get three cards inside was to slip the third card between the top and bottom cards.

I really like this case and I can get my drivers license, credit card, and my store membership card inside the case. That means that I can travel with only my iPhone and still have all the things I need with me. I really like this case and I only wish it were slightly larger on the back so I could get four cards inside.

I was surprised that despite the protrusions on the back for putting the credit cards in the case it adds very little bulk to the device that I can feel in my pocket. I can still get the phone in and out of my pocket with little trouble even when sitting down. I wish that there were also a way to use the case to keep cash.

Verdict

Pros

  • Easy to use
  • Holds credit cards
  • Adds little bulk

Cons

  • Only holds three cards
  • Can be challenging getting cards in and out of the case
 

Conclusion

The Trtl Bot Minimalist for iPhone 4 is a very cool case that is perfect for the user that only needs three cards with them on the go. This case will let you leave your wallet or purse at home.
