ZooGue iPhone Social Case Pro hands-on
When it comes down to it, the ZooGue Social Case Pro (for the iPhone 4/4S/5) is an inexpensively priced tough case that’ll give some level of protection, but not to the point it’ll save it from severe drops. Just looking at them, they’re not brandishing any sort of style that would catch the eyes of bystanders. However, we do like how the thermoplastic polyurethane case manages to protect the smartphone from minor scratches and smudges – and maintains a very clean appearance. Furthermore, the thickness of the ZooGue Social Case Pro guards it from minor impacts too.
With its ridged sides, we like how it’s easily gripped in the hand and how it offers a very natural feel, which is aided by its rubbery like finish. And of course, there’s plenty of variety seeing that the case is available in 10 different colors. However, as we’ve clearly pointed out, there’s nothing too flashy with the looks of the ZooGue Social Case Pro. Rather, it’s the protection and $9.99 cost of the case that might attract some people to it.

I had one of those back when I had an iPhone 4, they are actually pretty nice for the amount of cash. They were flimsy out of the packaging but fit the device snugly and offered some pretty good protection, while maintaining a low profile. I wish they made cases for the One X.

Me too I got a cheap $7 for my ip5 from radio shack, but it looks cool and protects.

It's news only because it's for th iphone. No other phone gets a frection of the coverage that thing does when it comes to cases. Pretty pathetic that the biggest new is a cheap rubber $10 case LOL.
Psssst PhoneArena: companies make cases for other phones too, y'know. Maybe if you reported on them more than once evry three months the "iphonearena" comments would go down. Just a thought.

If there wasn't hundreds of different Android devices then I'm sure they would do hands-on for them as well.

The news was when these were free with coupon. I don't like bulky cases since I rarely drop my phone. This is a solid case for minimalists.

There's an appreciable level of detail in its design. I like.
