Today I am checking out the DryIce iPhone 4 case from id America. This case is a hard plastic case with a soft touch outside that should offer lots of protection. Read on for all of the details on the id America DryIce case.

Specifications

The DryIce case I am looking at today is the frosted version of the Ice case also available. The case is made in two pieces and clicks together over the front and back of the iPhone 4. It ships with front and back protecting films and leaves controls and ports open. You can get the DryIce case right now for $19.99.

In Use

The DryIce is a cool case that has a translucent frosted plastic. The outside of the case has a bit of a soft touch finish to it. The frosted looks of the case are very nice and I think the frosted design might show less dirt and scratches over time than the clear Ice case of the same design. The port on the side of the case for the volume buttons looks to be large enough to support the iPhone 4 from Verizon and from AT&T.

The case is thin enough to dock the phone without removing the case on some docking stations and clocks. All of the ports and controls are easily accessible with the DryIce case installed. The camera takes photos just as well as it did before the installation of the case.

This DryIce case is made by id America, the same company that did that Gasket case I looked at earlier this week. The DryIce also ships with scratch protection films for the front screen and for the back. The films are thicker and a bit harder to install and get air bubbles out from under than some of the thinner films that adhere better.

The good news with the scratch films is that the stiffer design means you can pull the films off easily and reposition them if they aren't aligned correctly. The film kit comes with a cleaning cloth and a small squeegee to get the bubbles from under the film. I found it worked better to use my thumb than the little squeegee though.

The case is made from a polycarbonate plastic that promises a thin design, but lots of protection for your device if you drop it. The front part of the case is raised slightly from the screen to keep your iPhone off the screen if you put it on a surface face down. The frosted coating on the DryIce case I am looking at is actually a thin coating of silicone material.

Verdict

Pros

  • Easy to install
  • Offers good protection

Cons

  • Scratch films can be hard to install
 

Conclusion

The DryIce case is a very nice little case that offers good protection fro your iPhone 4 and looks good too.
