Review: Belkin Slim-Fit Case for iPhone 3G/3GS

You purchased a new iPhone 3GS or 3G recently but you are still searching for that perfect case to protect your investment? There are so many options out there in the marketplace that choosing the perfect case can be a tough decision. Today I want to introduce yet another case that you may want to consider, the Belkin Slim-Fit Case for iPhone 3G/3GS. You can purchase the Belkin Slim Fit right here in TiPb store for the low price of $24.95. Follow us after the break to see if this case is the one for you!


The Belkin Slim-Fit is a well designed holster case that serves one single purpose, to protect your investment while it is not in use. The case is made up of high quality leather and stitching, with fabric sides and a soft lining that will not scratch your phone. To secure your phone there is a velcro flap that assures you your phone will not accidentally fall out. A nice touch that Belkin added was leaving the bottom of the case open so you can not only attach your charging/sync cable but your speaker volume will not be muffled.

Overall, the case really lives up to its name, as it doesn't add much bulk to your iPhone, even with a belt clip on the back. Kudos to Belkin.


Daily Use

I am a big fan of holster/pouch cases, and the Belkin Slim-Fit did not disappoint. Your iPhone 3G/3GS will fit perfectly into the case but not so tight to the point where you can not get the phone out quickly if you have to answer a call. The first few times you use it, it may seem like it is tighter than you'd like but rest be assured, the leather does loosen up a bit after a few uses.

The option to use a non-removable belt clip is a nice feature. And the clip itself is very low profile so if you don't wish to use it, the case still fits comfortably in your pocket.


If there are any downsides to the case, it would be that, as a slide-in holster, the Slim-Fit doesn't allow you use your iPhone while it's in the case. Yes, that should be considered a given when purchasing a holster case but it would be a nice bonus to have none-the-less.




Like most holster-type cases, the Slim-Fit only offers protection to your iPhone when it is holstered, which can be a good thing or a bad thing. It all depends on what your preferences are in a case. If you are a fan of similar cases, this one is a great deal. In the end, I can't help but like this case for what it is - the slimmest belt-clip case I've used - ever.


  • Slimmest holster case money can buy
  • Offers good protection while your iPhone 3G/3GS is not in use
  • High quality materials


  • Can not access your screen when your phone is in the case
  • Not dockable
