Originally released exclusively at AT&T and Best Buy stores, iFrogz' Luxe Original ($30) and Luxe Lean ($25) cases for the iPhone 4 are stylized hard plastic shells with open access to all ports and controls: Luxe Original is a two-piece, sometimes two-tone case with a metallic finish and soft touch body, while Luxe Lean features the same finish and body but is a one-piece snap-on shell with perforated sides and no front protection. Finally, the newer SoftGloss ($30) is a TPU case featuring a radial pattern and clear-to-solid color gradient treatment on the back, available in several colors. Each of the cases is sold at a significant discount over the MSRP, with SoftGloss sometimes going for as little as $10.


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.
