Review: iSkin Solo for iPhone 3G/3GS

Today I have for you the iSkin Solo. The Solo is a form-fitting case for your iPhone 3G/3GS that provides durable protection with bold, vibrant colors.

Solo by iSkin

The Solo is a flexible polymer case that encompasses the back and sides of the iPhone completely. This works well against impacts and scratches that usually occur on the back and sides of iPhones. The Solo is also hot/cold resistant and odor-free, both of which are welcomed features.

The silicone shell covers the volume rocker and sleep/wake button, but still allows access to them. However you do get clear access to the headphone jack, silent switch, camera, dock connector and mic/speaker.

For the front of the case, the Solo includes an ultra-clear film that is applied directly to the screen of the iPhone 3G/3GS. The clear film is touch compatible, so you can still use the iPhone touchscreen normally. The film provides protection against scratches and dust mostly. The film an optional add on that comes with the case and does not need to be applied if you choose not to.

My only issue with the Solo is that the polymer, while flexible, is on the thick side and this causes some difficulty in getting the iPhone into the case.

Overall the Solo provides good and durable protection for your iPhone while still giving you access to the needed areas of the device. Throw in the clear film screen protector and variety of high-gloss, vibrant colors and you get a well performing protection solution.

The iSkin Solo is scored a 4 out of 5.

The Solo is available from the iSkin online store in four different translucent colors (Black, Red, Blue, White) for $29.99.
