“CapsuleRebel” by SwitchEasy Case Review and CONTEST!!

Hey all!

Thanks for tuning in to another edition of X1Zero’s Corner. You may have noticed that I am posting earlier this week. Well, that is because I have so many free giveaways that I cannot possibly do this once per week! Read on!!!

Today’s post will be a case review and give-away of THREE �CapsuleRebel� cases from SwitchEasy.

�CapsuleRebel� case by SwitchEasy

Recently I began using some iPhone 3G cases from SwitchEasy and among them are these new �CapsuleRebel� cases. The case is a little different than what I am normally used to as the case is made of two parts; a polycarbonate exo-skeleton and a polymer inner shell. In other words, a hard plastic shell case.

The �CapsuleRebel� case covers the entire back, sides, top, and bottom of the case leaving holes open for the camera, the headphone jack, the sleep/wake button, the silent switch, the dock connector, and speaker/microphone. The entire front of the case, including home button, is fully exposed however the package does come with a screen protector that can be applied.

After the case is on the iPhone 3G, it is a really tight fit. Since the case is of the plastic type, it does add a little bulk and weight to the iPhone 3G, but if you were you to drop this case, the iPhone 3G would be completely fine…assuming of course the drop lands the phone on the case sides.

After using the case, almost everything about it works pretty well. The only one thing that bothers me is the case is tough to get off. Since the case comes in two parts (an inner and outer shell), the inner shell is really easy to put on, it almost just slides onto the phone and then you snap on the outer shell. However, when you try to take the outer shell off, it feels as if I could almost break it if I pulled any harder. Plus, the outer shell has these clips that snap into place quite good and taking them off is a hassle I found, but during the whole process there was no damage to either the case or the iPhone 3G, so that’s a plus in my books.

Included with the package, among the screen protector, is a polishing cloth, a universal dock adapter, a dock connector plug protector, and video stand. I’m going to stop for a second and let you re-read that list of extras. WOW. I was sold after the polishing cloth and screen protector, but with this case you get a dock adapter so its dockable, a dock connector plug protector so you can keep dust and stuff out of the pin connectors, AND a video stand. Some of you may be wondering what the video stand is. Well, if you have ever seen the iPod Touch you will know what I am talking about but it is a little plastic stand that the iPhone in this case rests in horizontally so that you can watch videos without having to hold your phone! TOTAL WIN!

Overall, I really like the �CapsuleRebel� case. It provides a hard shell protection that is actually quite stylish, and that boatload of included extras just sells itself. I give it a solid 9/10.

The �CapsuleRebel� case can be purchased from the SwitchEasy online store for $24.99, however I am giving away the three pictured above TODAY! Read below to find out how to win!

    Wow, I’d love to put one of those on my wife’s iPhone. She is accident prone and has dropped the poor phone a couple times already. Thankfully, it landed on carpet… but, it is just a matter of time.

    The soft leather and zagg shield won’t help it like a hard plastic one will.

    I’ve had this case for a few weeks now. Everything works well except for 2 issues I found:
    1. I had issues with applying the plastic screen protector thing. I had two many bubbles or whatever for me to be happy with it. I actually screwed up the first one and then tried the 2nd one and messed it up too. I’m sure it’s my problem – I was rushing to try the screen thing and messed em up. I had some other static screen type thing on that I didn’t want to remove so perhaps this is why i had problems putting their screen protectors on.

    2. and probably more importantly iIMO, the hard plastic does allow for headphones to be plugged in. But I find that my plugs/extension cables were too big to fit properly. The iPhone headphones fit fine. But for anything else I ended up using the mini-extension things people needed for the first iPhone (like the things that the 1st gen iPod shuffle sports case comes with). I’m thinking maybe trying a little dremel on the headphone hole of the case with it to make it a little bigger.

    Other than that, the case has been good! No complaints.
    And after a few weeks of use, I can pretty easily slip the phone out of the case if I need to. It’s not as hard as it was in the beginning. It takes a little effort mind you so the phone won’t just pop out on its own.

    I find the case good, light, and easy to use.

    Will it work with a zagg invisible shield because i have one getting shipped to me?? I just want to know if it wont be too tight to fit them together?

    at first i have only wanted the invisible zagg protection because i took really good care of my iphone and my other old phone but since my girlfriend came back from her trip, she’s alway playing with it. I pray each time and hope she doesn’t let it slip and fall on the floor which did happening a couple of time with my old motorola razor. I really think this capsulerebel will be able to protect my sweet iphone 3g against my girlfriend :)
