The Talon Hard Shell Case for iPhone 4, this version with beautiful artistic print finish, is an extremely affordable way to both protect and personalize your iPhone 4. Ally already looked at the solid color versions, and these are the same except for the artistic prints:

  • Contempo Tree, with colorful leaves on a white background
  • Midnight Tree, with bright red on pitch black, and
  • Starry Night, with impressionist swirls on a purple sky.

Compared to more expensive cases the Talon doesn't have the same level of fit and finish. The edges are somewhat rough. The plastic also isn't particularly durable. If you put it on and leave it on, you wont have any issues. If you want to take it off and put it on repeatedly, you might crack it. (Though for $15 you could buy several).

Since the case goes all the way around to the front, you can put your iPhone 4 face down without worrying about scratching your precious screen. It also goes all the way around the dock port so you might have trouble with thicker 3rd party cables like car adapters.

Overall, just like Ally said, the Talon Hard Shell Case for iPhone 4 is a great way to add fun and color to your device for under $15. It's available now from the TiPb iPhone 4 accessory store.

This case is all about looks and in that category it delivers in spades. However it lacks in the durability department. Then again, don't they say it is better to look good than feel good?
