Review: Agent18 Eco iPhone Shield case

I purchased my iPhone in mid-December and have had this case on it almost since I bought it.

The case is a fairly standard slim hard plastic case you can buy for many PDA type phones out there. It comes in two pieces that slide together. At first I was a little wary of how they just ’slide’ together with no latch or real ‘click’ to seal the deal, but I’ve never had it so much as even start to come apart in my pocket or anywhere else.

The case is hard plastic, but not overly smooth and I find that I can grip the phone far easier with the case on than off. It adds just the right amount of bulk to the iPhone so that it fits snugly in your hand.
Lookwise I would have to give it 10/10. It basically gets rid of all the silver and turns your entire iPhone into a nice black, which makes it look rather unique.

My only real issue with this case is that for people like myself who keep their phone in their pocket most of the time, dust and grit can work its way between the case and the phone. It isn’t a huge issue, but if my pockets got a little dirtier for some reason or another I could see it causing some problems.

Pros:
Nice, snug fit
Sleek look
Makes phone easier to grip
Protects phone against scratches

Cons:
Dust/grit can get between case and phone
Little to no shock absorption.

I only have one too LOL You can see the reflection of my friend's that I used to take the pic. Wish I had a real digital camera around, because they didn't turn out as well as I'd like. :D

yeah, i find that the iPhone really needs sunlight (or equivalent) to take good pics. standard indoor lights generally don't cut it.

That is actually a really good idea... I have used the agent 18 eco shield ever since it came out and no matter what case i go out to buy, i always go back to this one. I love it! I am going to go home and dremel out the tree tonight and i will post photos on the site tonight! Thanks again for the tip!

Kyle, that mod looks awesome, I saw the pics in your other thread.

On another note, I've got a Seidio case coming this week, as well an iSkin Revo case.

I'm such a phone and accessory whore lol
