iSkin solo High-Gloss, Streamlined Protection for Your iPhone
The iSkin solo for iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS [$29.95 - iMore Store Link] has quickly become one of the most popular slim-fitting skin cases available today. To find out why, follow us after the break!
The iSkin solo comes in 4 vibrant high-gloss colors: blue, red, black, and white. At first glance it appears the solo is just another hard plastic shell, and some might worry that it has a higher probability of scratching your phone than protecting it. But have no fear, it's actually a very soft plastic with the interior being an even softer matte rubber finish that will not scratch your iPhone.
Another perk of this soft plastic is that it's not tacky like most silicone cases out there. The biggest complaint I hear about silicone cases is the amount of dust and lint they attract, this is not the case with the iSkin solo. So, while it does provide you with is a material that will ensure that your iPhone will not go slipping out of your hands, it's also great news for those of you who put your iPhone into your pocket or purse and want to be able to remove it easily and -- lint free.
On the protection front, the solo has you pretty well covered. You get decent protection without sacrificing any functionality. Your screen, docking port, headphone jack, and camera access are readily accessible while your volume and power buttons remain safely protected. As a added bonus, iSkin includes a nice crystal clear screen protector that is equivalent in quality to the ones you can purchase separately. Will the solo save your screen from cracking if you drop it on concrete? Of course not, but it will protect your device from your typical bumps and scratches.
Overall I am a fan of what the iSkin solo brings to the table. If you are seeking a case that provides heavy duty protection, I suggest you look elsewhere but if you want a case that will provide casual protection for every day use along with a a nice sleek look, this would be an excellent choice.
