I’m always on the lookout for different phonecases; I can have one that I really like for a while, and then I get bored and want to try something new! Back in the old days, after I’d had my first phone for a while, I was desperate for one that had changeable covers. It was absolutely the most important thing to me. It didn’t matter whether the phone was any better than I one I had, I just wanted to be able to accessorise!
Nowadays phones are phones, but everybody wants to protect their phone as best they can, considering how expensive they are to buy, so why not get a case that is pretty as well as functional? Mr Nutcase offer custom phone cases, and when they offered to let me have one for review, I was pretty eager!
As you can see, I chose to personalise my case with photos of… myself. It was only after I’d had it for a while that I really thought about the fact that I have made a case with nine photos of my own face on it. But of course, it was all about having photos of all the beautiful children in my life, nieces, nephews and one of my best friend’s baby. I absolutely love it, though I’m a bit annoyed at myself for not dragging the bottom left photo over properly. You can just spot the sliver of white that isn’t supposed to be there!
Making the case was easy: it’s just a case of dropping the photos you want into a premade collage. It really couldn’t be simpler. When it arrived, I was pleased with the quality of the photos; they are all perfect and I think it looks really good. I like the way it feels in my hand too; it feels like it is just part of the phone. I’ve already had lots of compliments on the case when I thrust into people’s faces saying “Do you like my phone case?”
I’m not sure that if I dropped my phone this case would do a sterling job of protecting it, but I find that is true of most cases, unless you have a really sturdy silicon case. Round the edge of the case is a plastic surround, which I find myself playing with a lot, there’s one particular bit on the top left hand side that I flick up and down all the time; I can see it breaking off at some point in the future, which will be entirely my fault!
This phone case, an Ultra Light Weigh Slimline for an iPhone 4, would have set me back £14.95. Mr Nutcase also offer other options for slightly more, but this one is perfect for me, and a really reasonable price. Shipping is completely free, worldwide.
