1.5 weeks after I bought my SGP Ultra Thin Matte Series (Champagne Gold), I went to the IT show (10th March 2011) with Yu Ming and while waiting for him, I went to the Epicentre booth and I spotted a whole room of iPhone cases! Since I hated the SGP casing really a lot.. I can’t help but went to browse thru the different cases to see if any cases fit my liking.. Most of the casings are on major discount because they are clearing old stocks.. (You will know because the camera hole are mostly key shaped instead of oval shaped)
I looked around and I bought this case! The Cygnett Frost Matte Slim case (red)! I was thinking about which colours should I get (Cyan, Purple, Red) and in the end I decided to get red since it’s a much safer colour.. heh.. Actually it wasn’t an impulse buy cos I was looking at this particular case the day before on ebay and youtube reviews and this IT show sale is super cheap! So I might as well get it and think later.. haha..
So let’s take a look at the case now..
The front view.. The case is a nice fit on the phone but it doesn’t have a “lay on the table” design.. which means that when you put ur phone face down on the table, the screen actually touches the table.. So protection wise, this case may not be that good..
This is the side view of the case.. As you can see, this case is slightly thicker than the SGP Ultrathin case and thus, the side profile doesn’t look as slim but it’s definitely not too thick either.. The buttons and mute switch are exposed but it’s not very easy to access them cos there’s a depression between the case and the buttons.. (ie. the case is thicker than the buttons)
The back view is what attracted me cos I like this translucent look! However, because of my Powersupport back screen protector.. Sometimes you will see watermark formed at the back and it can’t be helped.. It’s a tradeoff between protection and sleekness and I chose the former (also because I already purchased and stuck the screen protector on already)
Overall, I really like this case and I may contemplate on buying a 2nd one (maybe cyan) if there’s a sale going on again soon.. haha.. I really spend a lot of money on useless things nowadays..
