With antennagate and we are betting there are some people still looking for a nice case for their phones. For that reason, we have decided to do a massive review of iPhone 4 cases, starting with the Case-mate barely there. Case-mate is well known for its large selection of cases available for popular mobile phones. It should be no surprise that it was one of the first companies selling iPhone 4 cases.
The Case-mate barely there case for the iPhone 4 has a form-fit design that fits right to the phone. The case itself is a piece of plastic that has a soft texture on the outside to allow for a good grip when holding the phone. The barely there snaps on the back of the iPhone to hold right on the phone without bulking it up. Case-mate says that the case is impact resistant, which is very important for a iPhone 4 case. The case covers the corners of the phone where a lot of damage can be done if dropped. It also covers the back of the phone where scratches can happen. We like that there is an opening for the Apple logo so people know we still have an iPhone 4. Barely there also comes with a screen protector sheet that can be applied to the front of the iPhone to stop scratches on the touch display.
There has been a reported problem with the antenna on the iPhone 4. This case does seem to stop the problem with reception as it covers the external antennas on the phone.
The Case-mate barely there case has a large selection of colors including black, white, pink, blue, clear, green, metallic silver, and purple. You can pick one of these up for $24.99 at the Case-mate website.
