Gumdrop Cases' Surf Slider for iPhone 4 ($35) is a slide-together, semi-transparent polycarbonate case for the iPhone 4 offering a form-fitting design and open access to all controls, rather than button protection; no screen protector is included for the price. Notably, the Surf Slider's closely cropped camera hole may lead to issues when using the integrated flash, and the case is so tightly tailored to the iPhone 4 that we found it a little challenging to remove. That said, we liked the smoke black colored version we received, and it is available in three other colors.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
