As practical as they come, this case is plain and simple but makes the iPhone 4/4S easier to grip and doesn’t get in the way of any of the buttons and sockets on the phone exterior. Uncomplicated and sleek, it clings to the iPhone like a second skin but offers solid protection against drops and bumps.

iLuv Overlay Translucent Hardshell Case for iPhone
The case comes in three block colours and is certainly unfussy; at first glance it appears to be just a piece of plastic. However, the coating on the exterior of the case makes it soft to the touch and diminishes the danger of it slipping out of the hand.

This coating does mean that the back of the cases becomes smeared very easily, but apart from that there is little to criticise here. It’s just a clean, simple case that compliments the design of the phone rather than compromises it.
