CasePics Iphone Case Review
As you can see, I was in DIRE need of a new phone case. This one had done a good job for just over a year, but it was feeling the wrath of prolonged exposure to two little girls and their grubby fingers (I swear I bathe them regularly, yet somehow their fingers remain perpetually sticky! ) Seeing my predicament, dear Brooke told me about this company called CasePics that can not only still do cases for the archaic iPhone 4 (not even the 4S, people. It’s ancient), but can also upload your own photo on the back.
So I went and checked out CasePics. I’m not gonna lie, it was a little confusing to figure out the website at first, because they had places for more than one photo, but you can only upload and use one photo per case. So I don’t know what that was about, but other than that it was super easy. They sent me a confirmation email and I was reassured that I’d only have to deal with my sad case for a few more days.
Normally, I’m not a fan of the stick-your-photo-on-everything idea, but these seemed a lot less kitschy than some others I’ve seen. And when it arrived I was not disappointed. The case is thin yet sturdy, and the picture quality is actually really great. So I’ve used it for a few days now and here’s my breakdown: it’s thin, easy to snap on, the photo is crisp and clean, and it’s pretty scratch-resistant so far. The only thing I don’t like about it, is that my phone feels a little too exposed. I’m used to the case that covers everything, so to have all my side and top buttons completely exposed makes me nervous. And the volume buttons are the same depth as the case, so it’s kind of hard to push them now. But overall, I’m really happy with it, and I love seeing my little girls cute faces every time I pick up my phone!
