Top critical review
Don't. Just don't.
on 30 October 2012
This was ordered at the launch of the iPhone 5 when not too many bumper cases were available. It's now been replaced by a much better case (Speck PixelSkin HD) that was on back-order. These are my experiences of using it for a few weeks as a stop-gap:
Not too many. It made me feel like the phone had some protection & my kids liked the smooth silicon back. But then...
* It attracts dust horribly. Put it in a jacket or fleece pocket & it will come out covered in dust (Not so with the TPU case I had on my iPhone 4). Not great for taking photos if you have to re-fluff it first!
* Poor fit. The sides are floppy, allowing dust into the sides & back. Compared to previous iPhone4 case & its replacement, the Cygnett did not live up to its name - definitely NOT a SecondSkin. This is not a case I would trust to protect my phone if dropped.
* The screen protector was just awful: the earpiece/front camera cut-out was very badly aligned & the front button cut-out was an incomplete slot. Very poor & replaced when I got the new case.
All in all, I think the review title sums it up: there's better out there for the same money.
