iLuv Flexi-Clear iPad case review

The iLuv Flexi-Clear iPad Case not only adds no bulk to your iPad, it adds tons of protection as well. It comes in a couple different colors and gives you the peace of mind of knowing that if you set your iPad on a surface face up or face down, the screen nor the back will not obtain any damage.

I've always been particularly fond of silicon skins and cases for iPad and iPhone. The iLuv Flexi-Clear iPad case exceeded my expectations. The first thing I look for with silicon cases is whether or not they collect lint or dust. If a case does, I probably won't use it. This is probably a bigger issue with the iPhone as they normally end up in pockets, but iPads end up in bags, so to me, it's equally as important. This particular skin doesn't seem to collect any dust or lint.

The next thing I typically look at is whether or not the skin stretches over time while using it. I've picked up a couple cases in the past that seem really nice but after a couple weeks, they lose their form. The bad part about this is, you typically won't know unless you use the case pretty extensively. Most places offer a 30 day return period and I've always found that to be enough to know whether or not a case is going to stretch out. If it does, I typically return it.

I was extremely happy with the fit of the iLuv case. It didn't stretch at all and stayed incredibly form-fitting. I will stick it in another case and throw it in my bag. The skin provides even more protection for the iPad than a standard case alone, and also provides some grip. If you're looking for a nice silicon case to add to your iPad accessory collection, check out the iLuv Flexi-Clear iPad case in the TiPb iPad Accessory Store.

Pros

  • Doesn't collect lint or dust
  • Maintains its shape and doesn't get loose
  • Wraps around the front edges so placing the screen face down on a surface protects the screen
  • Provides firm grip on most surfaces and inside other cases

Cons

  • Doesn't provide protection for the screen outside of placing it face down
  • Will need another case to put inside a bag in order to protect screen

TiPb iPad 4.5-star rated

Help and how to editor for iMore. I can take apart an iPhone in less than 6 minutes. I also like coffee and Harry Potter more than anyone really should.

I'm not sure, as I don't have an iPad dock but I'd assume no. I do have an iPhone 4 dock and virtually all cases don't fit in them. :(

Haha Ally I do the same thing. I use a silicon case with the iPad and then put it in a zippered case as well. Then I too don't ever zip the case.
Oh well.
Thanks for the review.

Wow - that case looks really cool. The only issue I have though is that I don’t think it would protect your iPad properly. When I bought my iPad two months ago I had real problems finding a case to take it around in as I commute a lot so need one that will protect it against the hustle and bustle of the tubes. All of the ones I could find that were padded enough were boring to look at but I wanted one that was a bit more colourful and fun. After moaning about it for ages my sister told me to go to www.oliepops.com which was amazing. I managed to get a gorgeous floral embroidered one for just £30.99. The website was so easy to use as I could pay via Paypal and it arrived the next day. They currently have an offer as well where you can get 15% off anything if you use the promotional code “Issy”. Since finding this out I have had another splurge in online shopping and bought myself a handbag organiser and camera case!

This case is exactly what I was looking for. It's soft and bendy so it doesn't scratch and adds a good grip, but it's harder than silicone so it doesn't gather dust and dust and dirt and still slips easily into my neoprene carrying case. If I'm carrying my iPad without a second case I feel a lot safer with this cover on it. Also, very pretty pink color, basically as shown in the picture and very clear to see through, not cloudy at all. Recently I have got one "clumsy box" for my son. http://www.eva-product.com/Ultra-Soft-Foam-iPad-Cover-for-Kids-305.html Easy to clean and durable,the clusmy protects iPad from those everyday bumps and drops as well as those messy
and grubby hands.
