Marware's C.E.O. Premiere for iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS. [$34.95 - iMore Store Link] is a horizontal case with a belt clip and top flap. Either you love that style or you hate it, but there is no denying their popularity among iPhone owners. Marware has been making iPhone cases since day one and some pretty good ones at that. What did we think of the Marware C.E.O. Premiere?
Follow us after the break!
The Marware C.E.O Premiere has the classic horizontal holster case design that covers your iPhone in a textured, soft leather with quality stitching and an ultra-slim non-removable belt clip. The interior of the case is made up of microfiber cloth which is a welcomed addition that promises not to scratch your device while it is in use.
The flap that encloses your iPhone stays closed with the help of Velcro. Though I would have preferred Marware to use magnets, the Velcro does it's job. However, when I am in a quiet room and need to get to my phone I'd like to get it out in silence rather than hearing the sound of Velcro tearing open.
The C.E.O. Premiere is designed only to provide access to the headphone port while your phone is inside. This design allows you to listen to music or take calls with the iPhones headset while you are out and about, but like all other cases of this style, no other controls can be accessed when the it's is closed. Keep that in mind if it's a deciding factor when you're looking for a new case.
Marware was kind enough to include a decent screen protector in the package as well.
If you prefer the horizontal case and can get past some of the Marware's minor shortcomings, the C.E.O Premiere as it's truly a quality case.
