Isn’t it too cute!? It’s the iPhone 4 Hard Cover case by Kate Spade ($40), and it was a gift from El Hub for Christmas.
It consists of two separate pieces of stiff, rather slippery plastic that snap together to protect the phone. I think my previous soft silicone cover was a little easier to hold, but I’m getting used to this one now and remembering to grip it tighter.
If you’re sensitive to sound, the hard case amplifies the clickity-clack sound the phone makes when it’s set to vibrate and ringing on a hard surface, and it gives me a start every time a call comes in!
I’ve already started to notice a few scratches along the edges of the case…but they’re minor. Just something else to think about.
I adore the print and colors, though, and how the design doesn’t cover the camera lens on the back (a HUGE issue with my old case). Overall, it’s a cute case that feels tough and sturdy (albeit a little slippery) in my hands. 🙂
Unfortunately, the case doesn’t come with anything to protect the screen itself, so you might also consider getting one of these.
