BookBook iPhone 4 Case Review + Hands On [Video]

In the sea of iPhone 4 cases, there’s one that will make you stand out from the crowd and that’s the BookBook iPhone 4 case from TwelveSouth. This handmade leather case resembles a book, but also doubles as your wallet to carry your credit cards and ID.

The BookBook case resembles a vintage book, to eliminate anyone knowing you’re using an iPhone 4. In a sense, it makes it an all-in-one solution for holding your wallet and phone. It’s an extremely well made case that’s lightweight and beautiful to look at. I found it to hold my iPhone securely in a snug fit (my iPhone had Wrapsol protectors on the front and back at the time; review coming!).

Although it looks great, there are a couple pitfalls. If you’re a heavy iPhone photographer, be aware there’s no cutout for the camera. Thus, you’ll have to remove your iPhone to snap any pics. Aside from that, everything else works without a problem. There’s cut outs for your headphones and you’ll be able to charge the phone without a hitch (that is unless you use a dock).

 

 

 

Still, the BookBook iPhone 4 case is one of the best looking cases I’ve seen. It retails for $59.99, which isn’t ‘cheap’ but given the quality of the case, it is worth considering especially if you’re a fan of the vintage leather look. Here is our hands-on video with the BookBook, to provide some more details into this case:

    Been thinking about this case for a while, no camera hole is what turns me the most. If I knew I could cut my own and still make it look classy than I’d be all over this. Looks great though!

    I think cutting a hole definitely would be possible but you’d want to use the right tools. I bet a drill could do the job.

    Mine is coming in tomorrow. The video on the twelvesouth website says you can pull the red tab and slide the phone up to take pics… is that not true?
