SGP - which has the cheesy misfortune to stand for "Stylish people's Good Partner" - is a Los Angeles, CA company who's been making good cases (which are actually nice and stylish) for at least a few years now. We've looked at their products before (there's still one of these wandering around Tampa somewhere from SGP through ModMyi) and were impressed by their build quality, style, and design.
The folks at SGP sent us a new batch of one of their new lines which fit the iPhone 4 and 4S - the Linear Color Series. I've also got one of their Crystal Series here which we'll be giving away later in the review.
The Linear series of iPhone 4/4S cases from SGP are a clever 3 piece design which allows for an EXTREMELY wide array of color combinations and customization possibilities (their site says over 1400 combinations are available - you can mix and match the 3 pieces). Check out their video below marketing some of the available options.
Each case comes with three pieces standard in the box - the back plate (which marks the only difference between the Color series - where it has a color - and the Crystal series, where it is clear), the upper "bumper" or side cover, and the lower "bumper." The back plate also has a black piece telling you about SGP, which also protects your iPhone from scratching.
I found the color of the white Linear Color Series I tested on my iPhone 4S for a while matched Apple's white perfectly, and the case looked as if it was an extension of the phone itself. The overall bulk added was very little, but the phone felt sturdy and well covered. As an added bonus (which was very appreciated), each case comes with a Steinhil "Enhanced Optical Display Protector" - aka screen protector. Of course appropriate cutouts in the case were there for headphones, dock connector and mic/speaker, camera, volume buttons, and sleep buttons. All access was easy and felt natural.
The case I tested felt just a tad loose on the phone, as if it wasn't quite machined perfectly for the phone, although the visual fit was perfect. SGP cases have become known to have a quality style to them, and these cases don't disappoint in that department. Between the solid design, good protection, and added screen protector in each box, if the style matches yours, these are good cases to buy.
You can pick up any of the myriad of color combinations SGP offers at their website for $24.99 - a great deal when you factor in the screen protector in every case box. Of course, as with any ModMyi.com review we've got some giveaways for you guys as well.
