5 beautiful iPhone 4S cases

5 beautiful iPhone 4S cases
It is not a secret that most cases out there will add protection, but will also ruin the look of your iPhone. And that's a pretty high price to pay, considering that the iPhone 4S/4 is a real marvel of modern tech, in terms of design. However, did you know that there are actually some offerings that will not only protect your iPhone, but will also elevate its sexiness to a whole new level? Well, guess what – we tried hard to seek out some of the most appealing iPhone 4S/4 cases for you, and ended up with this selection of 5 uniquely-cool models right here. Let's check them out!

ION-Factory PredatorZero

Did you know that carbon is the new black? Looking at the PredatorZero by ION-Factory, we are certainly willing to agree. Available in various colors to suit every taste, the PredatorZero combines real carbon fiber with glossy polycarbonate to achieve one head-turning effect.

Price: $69.99

monCarbone Midnight Black

But just in case you are now over all that “I-want-people-to-notice-me” stuff, but still appreciate high-quality materials, then you'll most probably appreciate the monCarbone Midnight Black case as well! This one's all about carbon fiber, and none of the polycarbonate found with the PredatorZero. Minimalistic and classy, subtly elegant, even quietly brilliant, if you will, is the formula behind the Midnight Black.

Price: $49.99

Case-Mate Facets

It's now finally time to leave Carbon world and head for the jolly land of plastic. Ohh, don't be blue – plastic can be cool too – just check out this beautiful iPhone 4S/4 case by Case-Mate, called Facets. Available in Purple, Clear (transparent), White, Red and Black variants, the Facets case won't wait for a second chance to transform your iPhone into a jewel of a phone.

Price: about $39 (£24.99)

ION-Factory NouveauArt

If there's a ladies' case, we can't imagine anything more suitable than the NouveauArt by ION-Factory. Striking you with its unorthodox looks at first, we must admit that the more we're looking at the NouveauArt, the more we fall in love with it. Both the gold and silver color variants will immediately get everyone in the vicinity notice you.

Price: $35.99

Pinlo Consize Metal

Do you miss the characteristic aluminum back side of the original iPhone and the premium feel it had? Yeah, we know - glass is certainly cool, but good-old aluminum is a whole other story. The good news is that if you want, you can bring those old times back with the Pinlo Consize Metal! Having a real aluminum outer casing and a triple-layered polycarbonate inner one, the Consize Metal manages to be both premium and ultra-light.

Price: $35

Why do iphones have the sickest cases? That is my only jealousy, your case is better than mine.

Agreed. I never use a case but when I got my gf her Nexus yesterday she couldn't find anything she liked between either the corporate Verizon store or Best Buy. Kinda sucked because the entire time there is a huge wall of iPhone cases she would love to have right in front of her face... at Best Buy they actually only had ONE Nexus case and it's all black.

Where in Africa? Cos we have smartphones here, iPhone 4S is available on all 5 Networks here (well I'm not sure if Virgin Mobile is selling it) Lol, pls don't tell me you're one of those people who think we (Yes I'm from South Africa) have lions as pets and we don't have high rise buildings. Typical American I guess (Not all Americans).

i am from europe, but good try to pull out some stereotyp arguement. in places where they don't have water and food they certainly have macbooks iphones galaxy nexus's and so on.. i just wanted to remind you guys to be thankful for the things that have been given to us instead always to pick out negative things.. and btw.. paying for apple prodcuts is mega stupid .. i don't say that the apple products suck.. but spending money on them is actually really retarded..

Yeah i'm well aware, i've been to Mexico four different times to build houses for people less fortunate than I am. Regardless, I want a nice case for my girlfriend's Nexus and it sucks they don't make them like they do for the iPhone. :P

Did some digging, check this out:http://www.accessorygeeks.com/samsung-galaxy-nexus-plastic-cases.html There are some nice ones in there. Maybe not NouveauArt nice, but still pretty decent and suitable for girlfriends. :)

Android phones are a very small market for any particular body style compared to the iPhone, so the mass market is not there to produce cases and make $$. That's another great thing about the iPhone - tons of high quality cases, not just junk from Hong Kong.

Very good point. I was wondering yesterday what the reason would be for not making as many cases for Android but that makes perfect sense. Bummer. Maybe i'll start an Android case company!

That's not a bad idea as Android is a huge market it's just spread out over too many devices to make money in the case world. Gamble on 3 devices and you might make some dough. But which 3? They change every 3 months.

So let me see if I get this (and I know I do) - by having only one model (or is it 4?) you get case manufacturers to pay attention, because they don't have to make so many models of cases, they can count on high volume for a particular model, and they know the consumers will buy them. And even if you're making a very, very good or exceptional Android phone, because there is competition, and there are so many different Android models, you can't count on the same volume for any one of them, so as a case manufacturer, you just don't make them. And the people that want cool toys for their toy will buy iPhones because they can get cool toys for their phone. Doesn't this sound self-perpetuating? That is capitalism, but if someone figures out how to respond to the range of Android models, and makes really cool cases, they should do well. I have never spent that much for any of my phones, all the way back to before my Treos, through Windows phones (some with sliding keyboards, which are tough to case) and up to now, but then again, I don't consider the phone an accesssory to show off, so I'm probably not the target market. All I ask for is something reasonably protective of the phone, and not ugly. My white EVO 3D is wearing a mostly clear, medium-hard gel case with kind of a white argyle pattern on it, so it doesn't even show up very well, and that is just fine. How is it " That's another great thing about the iPhone" - this has nothing to do with the phone itself. I don't have anything against Apple or the iPhone, and might even have one some day, but let's face it, this is a product of Apple marketing and not inherent in the device.

These cases are expensive as all get out. Stick with dealextreme, focalprice or Ebay. IMHO. You can find some cool cases and save huge.

Yeah, these are some really nice cases...but $69 for a case??? I do hope ION-Factory NouveauArt makes a few Android cases as well. These two demos are really sick!

I bought Ion4 case from Element Case for my 4s. I thought it was a little expensive at $50. But, last weekend my dog pulled it out of my hand and it phone was literally flung to a tile floor 4 feet below. It bounced twice. The Ion4 case saved it. The phone did not have a scratch. It may not look fancy, but I'm keeping case on my iPhone from now on.

Never been much of a case guy myself. Phones are made to work best without a case. Unless it's an iPhone 4, which doesn't work without one.

I'm thinking the reason they have so many for the iphone is because the phones design stay around for a while,w/ android & wp there are so many different models costantly being released that companies would rather make cases for the iphone but here are a few sites that have some cool gear & don't forget amazon they have a great selection & low prices:www.elitextreme.com/ www.handhelditems.com/
