Lightweight, tight-fitting design that looks cool
The elago S4 Glide works well as a lightweight, convenient case. It’s strengths are that it adds little bulk or weight to the iPhone, it looks nice, and it has a removable bottom. It’s weaknesses are that it is made from lower quality plastic that shows smudges and scratches and it doesn’t provide adequate protection against large drops.
Overall the design is well thought out and it is made from hard plastic which is covered in a polyurethane coating giving it a sleek look.
The surface is reflective and shiny like the iPhone. The downside to the case exterior is that smudges and scratches on the case are more apparent.
There is a small seam that runs around the outside of the case that could have been removed or smoothed out. This seam makes it obvious where the case was put together which adds a cheapness to the case’s feel and look.
One of the best features of this case is the removable bottom half for docking. Many who use iPhone speakers or docks know that cases often can get in the way. Having an easily removable case bottom solves this problem.
With some audio cables the case gets in the way around the headphone jack. It fits the Apple designed headphones but other types of headphones did not fit.
The S4 Glide is a great option for protection against small accidents. It is not made to withstand being submerged under water or trampled over by horses, but if your phone falls a couple of feet it should be fine. It will do well against scratches because it covers nearly the whole phone and also comes with a screen protector to keep the front glass on the iPhone from getting scratched.
The price is set high for a plastic case that offers only minor protection. This case’s value is in how well it blends with the iPhone 4/4s glass.
The elago S4 Glide is protects against small amounts of damage and looks cool. Overall this case fits the style of the iPhone’s look, fits tightly around to provide hardly noticeable weight and protects against small amounts of damage. This case is designed for looks, light weight construction and convenient size.
