  • iSkin Solo FX, Best of Both Worlds (Giveaway Ended)


    iSkin is a company dedicated to making great accessories for all kinds of Apple consumer products. They’ve got some really neat stuff in the stable, and the latest one is the “Solo FX”.

    iSkin Solo FX gives you the best of both world - both the nice glossy look of a hard case, and the complete shock protection as soft cases. Unlike most of those soft silicone cases, this case's material doesn’t attract lint at all.

    My first impression of the case was it looks beautiful! It's pretty similar to one of their other cases, the “Solo”, but the FX comes in a variety of vivacious colors and beautiful designs embossed on their backs. A perfect ‘party outfit’ for your iPhone 3G!

    Like most cases out there, this one has some common design issues. First of all, the major issue with the case is it is much harder to press the home button and volume control buttons due to the "hard" material, which acts as a big barrier. Another common problem is the vibrator switch, which is easy to push down but needs much more effort to be pulled back up. Even the camera cutout is not of the perfect size, which makes it look a bit off. Another issue with the case - which could be taken as a favorable factor as well - is that it really grips to the jeans and could be difficult to take out of the pockets. Other than that, no major issue exist.

    If you are looking for a sleek case that can give you shock protection as well, look no further! You might consider having a look at the Speck Candyshell as well, which is a tough competitor to this case. For those of you looking to buy one, get it directly off iSkin for 32.99$ - a bit overpriced but still fair for most - not to mention that you also get a mirror screen protector included in that price though no squeegee. The color range includes translucent purple, translucent red, translucent orange, translucent blue and translucent green.

    But if you really want to try your luck before spending the money, iSkin is generously providing ModMyi with 3 extra cases for a GIVEAWAY! These can be shipped internationally, so everyone gets a chance to participate. The rules are pretty simple and any one that doesn’t follow simply won’t qualify to win one.

      Anybody know if this case on the phone fits as snuggly in a switcheasy vision holster as the incase slider does?
      Sorry for those words, just deleted them.Can you do the same from your quote? And, dunno about switcheasy holster but they sell some revo clip which works nice as of what i know.

      I've had the case since the first day I bought my iphone I have the green one. One thing I must say is be careful of the color you choose because the color is not exact they are still nice but not what you might expect. I love the case though no scratches or anything. I will agree with the vib switch tho can be a bit of a pain to move it back up but isn't impossible...The Mirror screen is nice it stop ppl around you from viewing your screen but can be a pain when outside and the sun is shining you cant really see the screen. Other then that its a great case

      Looks like a great case , but looks arent everything . I'd like to have a Porsche also , but it doesnt serve any purpose except being a chick magnet.
      I think a case should not cost as much as or more than a digitizer screen . I mean I think they could sell alot more of these by lowering their price . I bought a leather(imitation) case and a silicon case that I use together for less than half that price . I am very happy with it and it keeps my phone from getting scratches and from damage from a drop .
      To each his own .

      A really nice case is the Mophie Juicepack Air. I love it. Not only a really nice case, but it has a built-in battery and any extra juice is great.
