Reader Review: CaseCrown Polycarbonate iPhone Glider Case

Geek Gear Review: CaseCrown Polycarbonate Glider Case

Reader dyskrasia posted a review of her iPhone case in the brand-new Geek Gear Reviews group:

This case's color is beautiful and the texture feels pleasant in my hands. It's got a matte feel and is kind of a fingerprint magnet, but you can easily rub the prints away with your hand. So far it has survived a fall off my kitchen counter without damaging the phone or the case itself. It didn't even split the two pieces apart after the fall. Minus the Apple logo cut-out on the back, this case is a little thicker than the Seidio Innocase II Surface case (which my husband chose).

The problem with this thicker material is that his earbuds' jack plug fit inside the audio jack with no problem, while mine won't stay put because my earbuds have the fatter L-shape end (and not the skinnier jack plugs like the ones that comes with Apple's standard earbuds). The jack will pop up and out of the input if I just try turning the cord while it's plugged in, which is a little annoying. (Maybe I'll take a Dremel to the cut-out, but in the meantime I'll stick to listening to music on my iPod Classic.)

To find out more about the case and whether or not she recommends it,

Another minor flaw is that the color of the case transfered onto my brand new nook cover. Now the pretty green nook cover has red traces of what looks to be the faint shape of an iPhone…

All in all, I would recommend this if you have the skinnier plug at the end of your earbuds or headphones, and watch out for that color transfer. This case is also available in Pink Diamond, White Pearl, Blue Sapphire, Black Obsidian, and Purple Amethyst and sells for $18 at CaseCrown, marked down from $25.
