“More.” Cases Review and CONTEST!!

Share:

Hey all!

Thanks for tuning in to another edition of X1Zero’s Corner.

Today’s post will be a group case review and give-away from more-thing.com. (Another give-away!!! You guys are way, way too lucky.)

�Ultra Slim�, �Red Magic�, �Diamond Series�, and �Color series� cases by More.

Recently I got the chance to use and test out some cases from More. I hadn’t heard of them before, so I was intrigued by the chance of being able to test some of their iPhone 3G protection solutions. The first of this batch of protection that I tested was the �Ultra Slim� Silicone case, a silicone �Color series� case, and �The Red Magic� silicone case. All three cases are pretty similar with the exception that both the �Color series� and �Red Magic� cases have a ribbed back and an exposed circular area from where you can see the Apple Logo from the back of the case. With the �Ultra Slim� case, the material is very thin and form fitting around the iPhone, so it reduces on bulk and feels really good in the hand. The �Color series� and �Red Magic� cases are a little more thick because of the ribbed design but still very form fitting.

All three cases cover the entire back, sides, top, and bottom of the case leaving holes open for the camera, the headphone jack, the silent switch, the dock connector, and speaker/microphone. The entire front of the cases, including home button, is fully exposed so you do have to be mindful of that.

After trying the cases on the iPhone 3G, they both provide a really snug fit. Since the cases are of the silicone type, they do not add bulk or weight to the iPhone 3G, but if you were you drop the phone with these cases on, the iPhone 3G would likely be damaged.

After using the case types, everything about them works pretty well. Since they are just silicone cases, and nice ones at that, I really cannot find anything wrong with them. I just want to add that I particular like the �Color series� and �Red Magic� case because as is common with many silicone cases, they block the entire back of the phone and no one knows you have an iPhone. Well, for those you need to show off their iPhone 3G, the �Color series� and �Red Magic� expose the Apple Logo quite well and I think that adds a nice touch to the case overall. It blends really well with the case and is not a over-the-top �look at me� kind of deal at all.

The second case type that I received was the �Diamond Series� from More.

The case is pretty similar to the first three however instead of ribbed backing, it is a diamond design of which you can also see the Apple Logo. With the �Diamond series�, the material is much more thick than that of the previous three cases. It is still very form fitting and because of the thickness, I would say that this case would likely survive a fall assuming the phone lands on the case sides.

As with the previous three, the �Diamond Series� covers the entire back, sides, top, and bottom of the case leaving holes open for the camera, the headphone jack, the silent switch, the dock connector, and speaker/microphone. The entire front of the case, including home button, is fully exposed. Overall, everything about it is good, but I am not a fan of the diamond design….to flashy for me, but hey, that is the style of this case. The only other thing that may bother others as it did me, is because the case is little thicker than the rest and feels as if it is made with a different material, the case is tough to get on and off. This is being compared with the previous three cases where they just came off and on with minimal effort, but the �Diamond series� will require a little bit of push.

Overall, I like them all. All four cases provide adequate protection, a form fitting design, and some nice colours to go along with it.

For the �Ultra Slim� case, I give a 8/10.

For the �Color Series� case, 8/10.

For the �Red Magic� case, 9/10.

For the �Diamond series� case, 7/10

The �Ultra Slim�, �Color Series�, �Red Magic�, and �Diamond Series� can be purchased from the More. online store, however I am giving away the four pictured above TODAY! Read below to find out how to win!

  • Harry

    I like the color series the best…as it would totally sexify my iphone, but the reason why i love my iphone is….its totally multitalented and it looks super rad when it naked (but its safer with a little protection)

    (yes I have issues)

    I love my iPhone 3g mainly for all the features, but I have to admit that Safari and iPod are my favourite. Safari gives me a desktop class browser to surf on when i’m not by a computer and iPod just speaks for itself (its majestic). I like the Case 0033 because it doesn’t fully take away the actual colour from the my iPhone. It still keeps the colour hue neutral and a little protection for my phone would always be great 🙂

    I love my iPhone since it keeps me connected to the rest of the world no matter where I am – at work, at a park, camping. I think the grey case with the logo hole (http://cdn.iphoneincanada.ca/wp-content/uploads/2008/08/case-0033.jpg) would look best on mine since it’s nice and neutral and keeps the attention away from the back (case) of the iPhone, and brings it to the front where all the action happens 🙂

    More than a month after buying my 3G, its still naked! I have a transparent screen protector though, so I’m half safe.

    I was looking at that semi transparent/white “Color Series” skin, and noticed that over the black phone, it gives an almost grey color….well well well! I am currently in the process of designing a Winterboard theme that uses transparent icons, with grey semi-transparent onset pictures, and a soft blue-grey video wallpaper. I’m going for something that is easy on eyes. I think it would compliment my theme entirely, and would blend with it almost seamlessly…anything else would be too contrasting and kill the theme.

    Oh yeah, is it “grey” or “gray”? I can never remember…..

    After reviewing the contest rules, I should add WHY I love my iPhone.

    I love my iPhone for the simple reason that it has given me a new frontier to geek out on. I have done all one can do to their computer; I’ve had every kind of Windows on it (even 3.1), any linux distro you can think of, turned it into a Hackintosh, and themed it 6 ways from Sunday. I bought an Archos 605 cause I couldn’t afford an iPhone (pre-July 11th), but that thing is a joke.

    Then the news came that the 3G was coming to Canuckland!!! Wahoo!!! That is when I became a daily creeper of iphoneincanada. I didn’t jailbreak until iPhoneFan did, and once I did, my modding needs were met. At this point I can control XBMC with my phone, I’m in process of making my own theme, and its touch screen!!! How much cooler can you get than touchscreen? I mean really…. Anyway, thats why I love my iPhone.

    Do I LOVE my 16GB iPhone 3G… not yet, I just got it a few days ago… but it’s growing on me. Nearly crapped myself the other day when I learned that it has TV out; and am looking into that feature a wee more for doing presentations. I could really use a case/skin for it though, as my 18 month old has already gotten her hands on it… and dropped it.

    I LOVE my iPhone and I use it all the time. Almost everyday my battery is at 20%. I know I will have to buy a new battery sooner or later. I almost dropped my iPhone the other day and if I didn’t catch it I would of been crying right now, and I might have bought a new one. IT HAS TO BE IN PERFECT CONDITION!! I LOVE my iPhone so much that if it was a woman I’d marry it the moment I touched it!! I fell in love with the Diamond Series case when I saw it. It is perfect, it is flashy and it has shock protection. The Diamond Series case would complete my iPhone!! To me the Diamond case makes the iPhone look better than it does stock! I know that many people are going to disagree with me, but that is just my thought about it!!

    Anyways thanks for the contest.

    Apple has the best designed and engineered devices on the planet. They are so far ahead of the curve that even new devices that are coming out are still trying to dethrone the iPhone. Even stronger is the OS and platform of the device. When you have a device that has an open SDK platform to allow developers to create hundreds of apps that users can purchase to allow them to do practically anything is nothing short of incredible!

    That makes the iPhone worth the price…and worth protecting with a strong Black Diamond case!

    Cheers!

    I love the iphone but unfortunately I do not have one because of the cost.
    I do however have an ipod touch…….what a beautie it is.
    It never leaves my side.
    I use it for surfing, music, videos, games and whatever else I can find to do on it.
    If the iphone case fits the ipod, I would love the red one 🙂
