Why not keep your new Iphone as safe as possible? If you have an Iphone 3GS, here’s the item that will ensure your phone’s safety.

Icon Slider Case (yellow/gray)

The Gray and Yellow Version of the Icon Slider Case

I’ve found the Icon Slider Case from Incase for Iphone 3GS to meet all of my needs and concerns with flying colors. I bought this case roughly two years ago and I feel compelled to recommend this particular case due to the new popularity 3GS models are getting with the cheaper price from At&T. Yes, I’ve had this case for close to two years, but it’s still as durable as the day I ordered it.

The Icon Slider Case -CL59204-B has a durable hardshell construction, interior rubber guardrails for shock absorption (perfect for the accidental drop), a minimal wall thickness of 1mm, and direct access to all device features. All the features necessary for a successful safety encasing for your phone. The added features that might entice you further is this case’s lightweight construction, soft-touch coating, and the sleek design.

The pros of this product are as follows:

  • Durable
  • Long lasting
  • Sleek design
  • Shock absorption
  • Easy, direct access to all your phone’s features

The cons include:

  • The price can sometimes be a bit high ($34.95 direct from the store down to $15.00 at amazon.com, albeit a different model)
  •  The selection of colors are limited (gray/yellow, black/white, and blue/white) for this particular model
  • The edges can scrape up and make the overall appearance much less sleek
Other cases like this, but slightly different might suit some of you better, a lot of the designs for the cover phone cases are geared towards musicians and artists (e.g. one design collection is centered around Andy Warhol). If you have a later model of the Iphone, like the Iphone 4 or Iphone 4S, Incase has a myriad of designs for those models as well. However I would say that the Slider models are the best for durability and protection. If you want something a little more bright and fun, Speck’s Candyshell collection has polycarbonate combined with a rubbery polymer for the best shock absorbency. If the price is too high, I recommend the Seidio Innocase or the Capsule Rebel case.
All in all, I think this is a good buy because of the longevity I’ve had with this product and how well it has served me. If the price is too high there are a couple of cheaper options out there, but I would recommend this case to Iphone owners.
