iPhone 4S Case Roundup

This is the awful way I shop. When looking for a slimmer and trimmer iPhone case, I looked at every alternative. This is what I found:


Splash RaveSkin for iPhone 4s

$25. This is the case my wife uses. Fantastic trimness and grippiness.

No name case off Ebay

$4 Completely cheap feel. Too Slippery.

I chose the terrible $4 no name bumper from Ebay. At $4, it is probably overpriced. The case was far to slippery for ordinary use. After a little internet research, I found a tip to help make it grippier. Rub it with a scouring pad. After about a half an hour, the glossy plastic became a bit duller and much grippier. The case also took on a green tint from the scouring pad. You know the old saying. You get what you pay for.
