If you’ve been reading recently, you know I don’t have an iPhone. But I have a family member who does; we share the whole painstakingly-agonizing-over-every-purchase gene, so I thought he’d be the perfect person to write this Snugg iPhone case review for you, my lovely readers. We’ll call him Homme Frugality. I may just have him back round these parts in the future. Thanks, Homme!
We all know how much money a smart phone costs. That’s exactly why most people decide to protect them with a case for the duration of their use. While some find the need for a bulky case with lots of protection, I was looking for something that kept the sleek look and dimensions of my iPhone 5. The Snugg Ultra Thin case, after a few weeks of use, proves to deliver just what I wanted.
Snugg’s Ultra Thin case comes in a large variety of colors (I chose Sky Blue,) and even in bamboo or a clear plastic (to make the case that much more discrete.) There is a lot of coverage on the back and sides of the iPhone 5, which is a good thing for a gorgeous phone notorious for chipping and scratching. The case easily snaps in place and stays fastened, and the material has just a bit if grip to it, which is a nice touch. The phone feels as if it would stay in your hand or on a surface even better than if it were caseless.
The case barely adds anything to the functional size of the phone; it goes into and out of a pocket just as easily, doesn’t look noticeably bulkier, and adds a vibrant color to set your phone apart simply. The screen, camera, and all buttons and ports are just as accessible, and leaves room for some bulkier accessories and docks I have used.
As far as size, style, and utility are concerned, the Snugg Ultra Thin case is everything someone could look for in a compact case. At $15 on their website, the price is right, too. If one were to try to spend even less, the quality would surely not be matched. Those looking for screen protection will find clear screen protectors on Snugg’s site
