Otterbox has expanded their line of protective cases for the iPhone 4, the new Otterbox Impact Series case is a great case at a great price. Read on for more details.
Like their Defender Series case, the Impact Series case matches the form factor of the iPhone 4 nicely, it wraps the phone securely without adding unnecessary bulk. The case allows for easy access to the dock connector, which is uncovered, as well as the mute switch along the side and the headset jack. The silicone case does cover the volume up/down buttons, as well as the power button, but without impeding their function in the slightest.
The case is a textured silicone skin that wraps around the iPhone 4, it is form fitting, but still slightly stretchy. It provides excellent grip, and protection against minor bumps and abuse. I've spent some time with this case, keeping the phone in my pocket when not in use, and have not seen any deforming or stretching from this like other cases have been known to have. The case doesn't have a tacky feel that some other cases have, and doesn't pick up fuzz or lint when kept in the pocket.
There is a good bit of protection around the screen, there is no actual screen protector over the glass, but almost a quarter of an inch of raised silicone surrounds the screen, helping to protect it from accidental damage.
The case is available in several colors, including white, for those of you still pining for a white iPhone 4. The case has a suggested retail price of $19.95, I've seen many lesser cases sell for much more.
