Specifications

The Trtl Stand for iPhone 4 is made from recycled plastic bottles and comes in several colors. It will protect the iPhone from damage in a drop, measures 4.53" L x 2.43 "W x 0.50" T, and weighs 0.51 ounces. The case has a stand that flips down that will prop the phone in portrait or landscape modes. You can buy the Trtl Stand for iPhone 4 now for $29.95.

In Use

The Trtl Stand for iPhone 4 comes in several colors; the sample I received is light blue. The case is designed to work with either the AT&T or Verizon model of iPhone 4. The case is very thin and adds little bulk to the phone when in your pocket. The plastic used is made from recycled bottles and is slick so the phone slides in and out of your pocket easily even when sitting down.

The big feature of this case is the little flip down kickstand on the back. The stand folds flush when not needed so you can't even tell it's there in the pocket. When you want to prop the phone up for Facetime calling or watching movies you can flip the stand down and prop the phone up. The stand will prop the iPhone 4 in portrait mode when you sit it upright. In landscape mode, you have two angles to choose from. Propping the phone with the flat side of the stand makes it stand nearly vertically.

Propping the phone on the angled side makes it stand up at a nice laid back angle making it easy to watch on your desk close to the phone. I mentioned my case was light blue; it also comes in black, white, green, and pink colors as well. The iPhone is recessed inside the case slightly when installed. That makes the case stick up slightly around the screen of the phone. I found at some angles that put pressure on the ear and could be uncomfortable after talking for a while.

Verdict

Pros

  • Easy to install
  • Props the phone up for comfort
  • Made from recycled material

Cons

  • Rough edges can be uncomfortable on ears
 

Conclusion

The Trtl Stand for iPhone 4 is a great little case that is cheap and props your iPhone 4 up for more comfort.

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.
