I recently became the proud owner of a brand new iPhone 4 and whilst the build quality of the phone gave me little to complain about, it's fantastically made after all, I was concerned about how it would cope with everyday use. I'm not the most careful of people, I can be clumsy at times and owing a phone that costs over £500 to buy is a responsibility that I take very seriously. I'm forever picking up and putting down my phone and was concerned that it would start to show signs of wear and tear or, more likely, become scratched and battered. Due to the dimensions of the phone it isn't the most discrete piece of technology anyone could own and it soon occurred to me that I should look at buying some sort of cover for it just to give it an added layer of protection. Amazon was my first port of call and whilst searching for iPhone 4 covers I spotted the subject of this review: a clear gel silicone protective armour case which came supplied with a screen protector, reduced in price from its RRP of £7.99 to £4.79 I decided it wasn't too high a price to pay so placed my order and a few days later it popped through my letter box.
The screen protector is just that, a piece of transparent film which is applied to the screen of the phone, this is a little tricker to fix into position as there is a tendancy for it to slip or leave little air bubbles. Once in place though and smoothed out it is perfectly fine and does what you would want a screen protector to do. My touchscreen is still as responsive as it was without the protector on it and even though it could be prone to lift at the edges if handled too roughly the fact that it seems to slot under the edges of the case itself means that it should stay put for as long as you want it to. I've never experienced any slippages and now that it has been used many times since it was first introduced to my phone it simply sits in place and I forget it is there most of the time to be honest.
I like the fact that it doesn't add any extra weight to the handset, the pattern on the back is appealing to the eye and it doesn't make the phone stand out. It doesn't make my phone look cheap or tacky which I find can be the case with some other covers that are available and for me this is a discrete addition to my phone which has given me some peace of mind that scratches and scuff can be avoided. It obviously isn't going to protect the phone from breaking if dropped but I don't think it was designed to do that anyway, all I wanted was something that would preserve my phones case and screen and this is what this kit does.
