SwitchEasy Eclipse iPhone 4/4S Case Review [Video]

Over the next couple of weeks I’m going to be trying out some new cases, so it’s the perfect time to take a look at what I’m using on my iPhone 4S right now.

It’s the SwitchEasy Eclipse. It’s a hybrid case, meaning it’s made from a hard polycarbonate material, as well as a softer rubberized material. It’s also two toned in colour, with the lighter portion being the hard portion, while the darker portion the rubberized material.

The case comes in several colours – blue, green, black, white and pink. I purchased the blue, because I think it looks really good with the white iPhone.

As with any other SwitchEasy case you get a ton of extra goodies. It comes with …

  • 2 screen shields
  • a screen shield applicator
  • 2 dock connector covers
  • 2 headphone jack connectors
  • 2 universal dock adaptors
  • a microfibre cloth
  • video stand

Here’s my video review of the SwitchEasy Eclipse.

  • look
  • durability
  • iPhone stays snug inside case
  • nice feel in hands
  • lay on table design
  • some shock absorption when dropped
  • value for money because of all the extras included


  • difficulty removing the case
  • glare from flash when taking pictures

I quickly want to mention, in a couple of weeks I’m going to have a review of the Metal Weave and the Titan series cases from Arctic Accessories.

I did a review of the Architect Stylus a while back. I’m mentioning the cases right now because if you go to the Arctic Accessories site, you can get the cases at early bird pricing. I’ve been using them for two days now, and I’m impressed so far. There’s no doubt they make your iPhone stand out. So stay tuned for the full review.
