Earlier this week, we received the iFrogz Luxe case for the BlackBerry Bold 9700, a beautiful yet simple case that protects your phone from all those dings, dents, and drops that you crackberry addicts do to your expensive phones all the time, and from using it for a while now. I can definitely say that this is one of my favorite BlackBerry cases around.
Now at Smartphone Nation, we suggest all our readers and gadget lovers to use protection, and so does iFrogz. The iFrogz Luxe case for the BlackBerry Bold 9700 is one of a kind. The soft plastic/ruberish hard case is perfect for your Bold and pocket friendly. When I say pocket friendly, I’m sure you know what I mean when you have that silicon OEM case which has become a lint collector.
Now, why you ask, should we suggest using this iFrogz case? Well because it’s sleek, stylish and simple. Best of all, it’s a two piece case and the bottom is easily removable so that you can still use your BlackBerry dock without having to dismantle your phone like some cases.
Color choices for the Luxe case includes Teal, Blue, Deep Pink, Grape, Red, Orange, Green, or Iron and comes with a screen protector. The volume rocker, camera button, camera, flash, left convenient key, micro usb and 3.5mm headphone port as well as the mute and keyboard lock key and most importantly, the speaker hole have all been cut out for easy access. If you read our iSkin review of the Curve 8900 earlier, you would have noticed that the speaker hole was not cut out, leaving the phone pretty much soundless. iFrogz fortunately was smart enough to cut that out and save the hassle.
The iFrogz Luxe case fits very snug in and isn’t loose. It adds some bulk to the phone but not too much that you can’t throw it in your purse or pocket and doesn’t add weight to the phone at all. One thing that did feel different was the edge of the keyboard. It didn’t bother me too much but when pressing the P, delete, and enter along with the Q, A, and alt buttons along the side. It felt a bit weird mainly because my fingers are fat and the keyboard is small, causing my fingers to lean on the side of the case.
Overall, I like the case very much, and being a person that hates cases. That’s good. It doesn’t cover up anything and the BlackBerry performs as it should while protecting your valuable goody without loosing it’s cool look. I could definitely see myself using this case on a daily basis and if your a heavy party guy/gal. This would definitely be a case you should invest in.
The iFrogz Luxe case for the BlackBerry Bold 9700 will run you for $29.99, a small price to pay to protect your valuable phone.
