Moshi's new Sensecover is unlike any iPhone case you've seen

Moshi has pulled the wraps off its latest iPhone accessory, the Sensecover, and it's unlike any other iPhone case you'll have seen thus far. The basic principle is that of a flip cover; a rear protective shell with an opening front protective cover. But with the Sensecover, you can silence alarms, answer calls and see the clock, all without opening the cover.

Lots of us enjoy the added protection of using a case with a front cover to protect our iPhones display while it's in our pocket or bag, but it's still pretty much impossible to use the phone one handed while in such a case. The Sensecover doesn't fully get around that, but it does provide us easy access to answer the phone with ease, and see the clock through the window on the front. A magnetic clasp keeps the case closed while your phone is inside, keeping it safe and sound.

The Sensecover is available starting today – you'll find the link at the bottom of this post – for $45, and is available in Steel Black or Brushed Titanium. It's only for the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s right now, too. What do you think of this one? We see iPhone cases aplenty, but rarely do we see something really different like this.

I really like this case. I wish a battery was attached. Other than tha, seems like a lot of great ideas were implemented. Lastly, great price point!

The Sensecover seems like a great accessory for those that prefer a flip cover style case.

Agreed! Considering the design in a basic rear case with an innovative front cover, I can't justify the cost. I'd pay more like $25-30.

So, even if it was the perfect case for your use ... you wouldn't buy it because of a difference in price roughly equal to the cost of a latte. Well that makes sense.

pretty sure the alarm shut off has moved too. Maybe they are rushing this out because 7.1 is poised to shit on a lot of these features.

Really? Wow! That sucks for these guys. Six years of no real change, then a bunch in six months. The risks of being an iPhone accessory maker.

This is appealing to me because I often keep my phone in my pocket or in a pocket in my purse & I occasionally worry about minor scratches as a result of it shuffling around. Plus I like the functionality while maintaining privacy.

I'm glad people are trying to come out with some cool accessories to make our time with our phones more productive. But this horrendous looking case looks like an over-priced Samsung smart case knock-off.

Is that supposed to be their commercial to encourage me spend $45?!!

Go BookBook for ALL your covers / cases needs! ;)

I feel more compelled to buy than I was expecting. Looks nice. Hopefully it goes on sale soon.

Beamed via my Moto X from the iMore Android app.

Um, can someone please explain why the vibrate/ringer toggle is covered up? I'd say that contradicts the claim on their page that "all buttons are accessible while in the case".

Looks pretty cool. A lot of times all you need to take your phone out for is a phone call. This def will keep the face oil & sweat off the screen when you're on a call.

you think this is some kind of joke you little cuntfaggot you fucker I'm going to fucking rip off your balls faggot and fuck your mother with them you little cuntfuck of a person you don't deserve to live you little cuntfuck go die in a hole you little cuntfuck

This case really is more a gimmick than anything. I just don't see the benefit. It kind of remind me of the Samsung bump that didn't bring any value. Everyone is wanting some new trick to do with there phones that we buy into these gimmicks. It's a nice case, but I can see whose calling by just raising the phone and can answer by swiping. Thanks for the review on this case!

Cool features but this design is not for me...maybe something more minimalistic however, with the cool features and maybe a battery pack included...might as well since we are adding a bit of bulk...just my wish list...
