Review: “Gel-Shellz” by Helium Digital

Share:

Hey all!

I hope everyone is enjoying the iPhoneInCanada.ca giveaway this month! We have a ton of prizes from a ton of very generous companies and X1Zero’s Corner will be no different!

Today we have a review of the “Gel-Shellz” made by our Canadian friends over at Helium Digital!

Gel-Shellz by Helium Digital

The Gel-Shellz are a premium silicone protection solution made for the iPhone 3G. The silicone is very soft yet thick so to offer superior impact protection, while the sides of the case have a micro texture design that provides a comfortable, non-slip grip. Gel-Shellz come in a variety of colors, however the review today will be on the Blue and Green colors and both tones provide a very attractive way to protect your iPhone 3G.

The Gel-Shellz have cut outs for the iPhones headphone jack, screen sensors, speaker/mic, dock port, camera and the Apple Logo on the back. A nice added bonus is the headphone and dock cutouts have plugs to keep dirt and dust out when not using either of the ports. The other nice little bonus offered by the Gel-Shellz are clear plastic pieces that come as part of the case.


The first plastic plug covers the Apple logo on the back but still keeps the logo visible and the second plug covers the screen sensors but since the plastic is clear, the sensors will still work properly. It is interesting to point out that I am seeing these plastic add-ons more and more on silicone cases these days and while some of you may not find them necessary, they are a nice extra to include because it helps with covering up the extra cut-outs but still keeping them protected.

Overall, I like the Gel-Shellz. I like the design on the back that surrounds the cut-outs and the design along the lower back of the case as well. Moreover, the black on blue and the black on green look fantastic especially because the black provides a nice accent to the cases and gives them a very finished look.

Now comes the fun part! If two lucky readers want to score themselves one of the cases pictured above, all you have to do is the following:

1.) Type out one or two sentences about the iPhone but with the words “Helium” and “Digital” in it (but NOT beside each other), as well as your color preference between the two cases above.

2.) Post the sentence(s) below in the comments

Contest ends Tuesday January 27 at 11:59pm.

And don’t forget! If you’re looking for this type of case, you can pick up the Gel-Shellz from the Helium Digital online store for $24.99. However, if you go NOW, you can get $5 off the Gel-Shellz using coupon code “iphoneincanada” (no quotes) during checkout!!! (Courtesy of Helium Digital!)

    While helium tends to fly away, this digital wonder is here to stay.
    iPhone, the ultimate gadget.

    A case that’s as good as the iPhone! I get a Helium-like life out of using my iPhone…and this case’s colours give me a lift too! And its non-slip grip will keep my 10 digits in place so I can stick with my iPhone’s digital greatness. Nice!

    I love my iPhone and it’s definitely brought the smartphone into the real and true Digital age (seriously, how come copycats do we have now, lol?). I wanted to win a GREEN Gel-Shellz earlier this week, which would have made me happy as walking on air, no happier, happy as walking on Helium!!!

    HELIUM is an inert gas which means it does not tend to react with other chemicals. This case however is sure to get tons of reactions from my friends after making my phone look like a DIGITAL GREEN apple.

    When I listen to my Digital music on my iPhone, I am always worried about dropping my phone. If I ever busted my phone due to the lack if having a blue case on it, I would scream in a high pitch voice, like I was on Helium.

    It is satisfying to know that someone finally came out with a cover for my digital phone that is unique in design and colour. Who knows, helium gas might have used somewhere in the making of the beautiful colours, I should check into that.

    I am entering this contest on this DIGITAL inter-web hoping to win a green Gel-Shellz in hope that my I-Phone will be as hot, and thermally-conductive as helium.

    People already took the obvious uses of helium 🙁

    When I’m feeling BLUE, I look at my DIGITAL device, also known as the iPhone 3G. It gives me the sensation like HELIUM does with the laughter and high pitched voices that I make when my girlfriend calls.

    The iphone has made a huge impact on the digital world today. Apple has really made a device that no other can compete with. But to make Apple’s device even better is the green gel-shellz case. Protecting it and yet still keeping it light as helium.

    This funky digital device, know as the iPhone 3g, is as much fun for an adult as a helium ballon is for a young kid. Hours of fun, until the hellium or battery runs out! Blue balloon please!

    The iphone makes me feel like I’ve been using “Helium”, because the high I get from using it keeps going up and up. This “Digital” device rules my life, and to win the BLUE CASE would be astronomical!!!

    As I’m typing this comment from my iPhone, hanging from 1087 helium balloons, I ponder what life would be like without the beautiful digital wonder that is my iPhone. My final thoughts unveil that the tragedy of being iPhone-less would be nothing compared to being iPhoneinCanada.ca-blog-less.

    In this ever changing DIGITAL age that we now live in it is important that we keep up with the times. As my iphone has a very thick case on it, it is very heavy. It is important that I keep my pockets on my BLUE jeans as light as HELIUM.

    I once met a fish named Kazoom
    She lived in a helium balloon
    The downside of that
    Besides her evil pet rat
    Was that her pride, her joy, her iPhone had a case that was maroon
    Now, the obvious thing to do, was buy a case that was blue
    So her digital thing wouldn’t look like poo.

    Haha, I suck. Hope I win! 🙂

    Helium is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, inert monatomic chemical element that heads the noble gas group in the periodic table and whose atomic number is 2.

    The “blackberry” is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, inert monatomic digital device compared to the iphone…. ;0)

    Blue if possible…if not, then green.

    Thanks.

    Hey I got the gel-shellz from the giveaway. One thing though- it seems they forgot to cut out the silicon on the vibrate button/switch… was it supposed to be like that, and was yours that way too?
