Preserving the same name, price, and general features as the original version for iPhone 3G + 3GS, SwitchEasy's new Reptile for iPhone 4 ($29) is a faux crocodile skin plastic case available in four colors. You start by inserting your iPhone 4 into a semi-soft plastic shell that snaps together with a harder plastic front bezel frame, collectively providing top and side button coverage with holes for the ringer switch, Dock Connector port, headphone port, screen, microphones and speakers. The major challenge of the hard frame design is that it limits the size and flexibility of the top and bottom accessory ports, though SwitchEasy aids dock-style accessory compatibility by including two case-sized Universal Dock Adapters in separate black and white colors. One video stand, two headphone port covers, and two Dock Connector port covers are joined by screen film, an applicator card, and a cleaning cloth.


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.
