Ill preface this post by stating that I Love Moshi Iglaze cases.
end of story.
everything about them is wonderful.

However, I get bored easily and find the Moshi covers to be lacking in colours.
maroon, black and white.

So I found myself google a week ago looking at iPhone cases..
came across the Casecrown.

This is the same type of case as the moshi.
Polycarbonate case with the same exact feel as the moshi.
with 2 differences. one positive and one negative.
first, the case comes over the chrome bezel on the sides. just enough to cover the chrome.
whats neat about this is that i can lay the phone down glass first and the case gives me a mm of protection.
thats the plus.
the negative is that the circle around the Apple logo is not as perfectly centered as the moshi.
close. but not perfect. and im anal.
:)

The colours are good. I got 2 of them today, and depending upon how they wear over the next few weeks, I'll get more.

But here you go... decide for yourself.
they are 10 bucks through their site. 14 through amazon.
They come as just the case. no screen covers, no dust cloths... just the case.
but for 10 bucks... cant expect much!

I think they are neat and allow me to give my phone some needed flair!

The inside has a nice little plastic runner on each side.. protecting the polycarbonate from the back of the iPhone itself.

Thanks for the detailed review, and great pics! I second the applause of anality, I'm the same way. Although, these are so beautiful, I just might forgive it. :)

David Ciccone had good things to say about these... is there any protection on the inside of the case?

I'm not sure how I'd feel about a piece of plastic over my camera lens, though... no matter how clear.

no worries!
both the logo and camera hole are plastic free!

Well i received mines and it really does feel like the Moshi Iglaze. Its kinda hard to take off, but a little fiddling and it should come off. I got a Blue one and a Gray with a white stripe down the middle. The edges are kinda sharp so im scared that taking it off and on may scratch the phone up. The insides have no felt liner. It also covers the chrome bezels only on the side of the phone. Overall this is great for the price. Another thing that bothers me is the Gray with the white stripe has a little overspray of white paint inside the top of the case. Not noticeable when the phone is in the case but its there. I think im gonna keep using my Moshi Iglaze just because i like that a little more. This will just be thrown into my box of cases i have and probably never get used again. But if someone send me 6.00 i will ship the gray and white stripe for you to use or try out.

woops!

first drop yesterday
:*(

on concrete in a parking garage.... sucks.
landed face down

lucky i had on the casecrown though... rather than an iglaze.
the way it wraps around the front gave me just enough protection.

scratched the case and not my chrome.
im so happy i just ordered 2 more casecrowns!
blue and orange!
