This review is from: Melkco Luxe Jacka Black Handmade Leather Slimline Case for iPhone 4 / iPhone 4S (Electronics)
The product description is correct - compared to other cases for iPhone 4, this is a class act. When closed it covers the whole phone,including the connector terminal at the base; this may not be a problem to you - but it does mean, eg, that the case must be opened to connect an in-car charger, and that exposes the screen to other things you may have rattling around in the car. I think I'm being "picky" here. If you choose a sensible colour (eg black) the phone is discreet, classy and less likly to attract wandering hands. It's a snug fit but the corners are really tough and the front and back have stiff linings that seem to be strong enough to protect those areas if they come in contact with damaging objects in the event that you do drop it. Surfaces in contact with the screen and back are (like) suede. The stitcing on the cover is white which adds to the sense of quality - and reminds you to wash your hands after visiting McD's. The front flap opens downwards and can be easily swung all the way down and back up behind the phone, out of the way, to align with the back. The "hinge" that allows this is made of leather, too, and if there is a potential weak spot, this may be it - I have decided to keep mine treated with leather wax which may also keep the stitching clean. Does the case "mask" the aerial? Well, it certainly covers the bottom, left-hand, edge where the aerial is supposed to be, I think. But I haven't found a problem with signal anyway - that might be related to where I operate (the South East of the UK) or my choice of carrier (o2 - via Tesco!). And I have tested the signal with the phone in and out of the case - no difference. So, a good prodect that I bought as a temporary measure whilst I wait for my free case from Apple. But I suspect that one will have to be something really special to even get out of it's box! Buy one - it's my most pleasing purchase for a long time.
