Despite Ozaki's continued and offensively wasteful packaging -- layers of cardboard, plastic, metal chains, holograms, and so on -- iCoat Dynasty for iPhone 4/4S ($30) is a surprisingly interesting case. The frame is made of soft TPU rubber, and includes coverage for the Sleep/Wake and volume buttons, while the backplate is hard plastic. The outer face of the case is designed to look like brushed metal, and features one of three playing cards: either the king, queen, or joker. It has a large camera hole that is akin to those we've been seeing from Speck and other companies recently, plus a fold-out kickstand that somewhat resembles the one on Luxa2's PH3 Metallic Stand Case. This one, however, is narrower, rests at a more acute angle, and is much easier to fold in and out.


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.
