First Look: Elago Design S4 Breathe for iPhone 4

Updated

Clearly inspired by Incase’s Perforated Snap Case for the iPhone 3G/3GS, Elago Design’s S4 Breathe for iPhone 4 ($25) is a comparatively aggressively priced alternative that is designed for the latest iPhone model, similarly wrapping around the sides and back of the device while leaving its top, face, and bottom open. S4 Breathe notably differs from Incase’s version in including protective screen film — Japanese-made, no less — and a microfiber cleaning cloth, while leaving out the standalone video stand. Silver, white, and black versions are available, each with a soft rubber finish and a metal nameplate on the back. Though the protection offered by shells like this is limited, the rear camera hole design is one of the most interesting we’ve yet seen, and we love Elago’s packaging, which looks great and cuts down on much of the disposable waste we often see in multi-layer cardboard and hard plastic boxes for iPhone cases.
