As one of the cases offered by Apple as part of its iPhone 4 Case Program, Incase's Snap Case for iPhone 4 ($35) is a clear or smoke black hard shell with a separate plastic video stand in the package. The shell protects the iPhone 4's back casing and sides, leaving its top, bottom, face, and side buttons exposed. Incase calls out the ring around its rear camera hole as specially designed to avoid glare when shooting photos, an issue with some early iPhone 4 cases. Notable is the fact that the smoke version of the Snap Case is matte-finished rather than glossy, and really very handsome by comparison, matching the black iPhone 4's casing extraordinarily well.


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.
