Acase Superleggera for iPhone 4 Case review

Acase Superleggera iPhone 4 case reviewThe Acase Superleggera is a polycarbonate case to protect your iPhone 4 and your iPod Touch 4G. The iPhone 4 case was sent to me in 3 different colors (Black Diablo, Clear Ice Cube, and the Orange Sunset) but feel free to pick a color that you like should you decide to get this case. There are 12 different colors in total when this review was written (Black, Silver, Red, Pink, Blue, Clear, White, Gunblack, Orange, Green, Sky Blue, Golden).

Colors aside, let’s have a closer look at Acase Superleggera for iPhone 4.

The Acase Superleggera for iPhone 4 is an ultra slim (0.7 mm thickness) and tight case. It covers the back and the side of the iPhone 4:

It’s lightweight so it doesn’t add any significant extra weight to the iPhone 4 which is important since you’ll be carrying it around every day. The case is also a tight fit case – you need to press the phone into it to fit it in. I find that it’s not hard to pull the case off but you don’t want to do it frequently as it may damage the case for doing it too often.

The case, thankfully, does not cover the buttons (such as the volume and the power button button). The audio jacks and other ports are left exposed too. The back of the case has a quite large cut-out for the camera and the flash. This is a good design as some other cases cause problems with the iPhone’s flash due to a tiny hole’s design.

Gripping on the bare iPhone 4 is a bit hard and quite slippery. On the Acase Superleggera, grip is much improved, thanks to the polycarbonate material. It’s also anti-fingerprints, so you don’t need to waste your time wiping your phone with a cloth (which is what I do normally since I’ve been using the Apple’s bumper case). No matter how hard I try, there is no single print ever make it to the body of the case.

The packaging also comes with a screen protector (and the tools to apply it) so if you just got your iPhone 4, getting the Acase Superleggera is like having a complete package to protect your iPhone 4 altogether. The case itself is pretty sturdy and will definitely protect your phone with ease.

Overall, you will get nothing better with the price you are paying for the Acase Superleggera cases. You get a nice and slim looking case, complete with a screen protector. Although the screen protector is pretty standard, it is enough for most iPhone 4 users unless if you want to keep your iPhone 4 on the same pocket where you are storing your keys. You might then want to invest in a more exotic screen protector.

There are plenty of colors to choose from and overall I’m pretty pleased with the case: it’s lightweight, slim, anti-fingerprints, gives a better grip, and very affordable. You can probably get a higher material case with more money, but for $15 including free shipping, you really cannot ask for much more than this.
