Some iPhone cases are stuffed with nifty, unique features and some are not. The Festival case by iLuv definitely falls into the latter category, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
It’s certainly one of the least obtrusive cases tested; its trim design means that the iPhone is only a tiny amount bigger with the case on than it is with the case off, and it allows easy access to all buttons and controls. The case is subtle and restrained in every way. In fact, from the front you can barely see it.
This does mean, though, that the case doesn’t give much protection to the front of the phone. If the iPhone was dropped face down then the Festival case will do little to stop any damage. However, the case is hard and strong and for everyday use and accidents it is protective enough. As long as you don’t drop the iPhone repeatedly on a concrete floor, the Festival case will be fine.
