Review: Griffin Reveal Etch Graphite Case iPhone 4

When I received the Griffin Reveal Etch case for my iPhone 4, I immediately ripped open the packaging and snapped it onto my iPhone.  Why the urgency you ask?  Well, these iPhone 4s are infamous for being damaged easily and I needed something to help address the "antennagate" drama.

The Griffin Reveal Etch case is an attractive, solid and slim case.  Composed of a rubber/silicon casing with a beautiful graphite-patterned back-plate protecting the glass back while maintaining a good look. Personally, I'm all about low profile styling, and black is simplicity so this case is perfect in my mind.  With the case on, iPhone 4 remains slim and the rubber surrounding covers up all the aluminum accents which some might dislike (but I do, its that Vadar-like design I've enjoyed from several Griffin cases in the past.. Unlike other cases I've used in the past (for iPhone 3G), there are minimal cut outs just for the camera, silent switch, data port and headphone jack.  Because the case is made of rubber, buttons are covered but the molding is very precise so you can easily use the power button, volume buttons with ease.

In conclusion, I think the Griffin Reveal Etch has a very slick and functional case and I highly recommend anyone consider a silicon styled case to pick one up for $30 MSRP.  Since Apple is offering free cases and Griffin Reveal Etch is one of the choices, I highly recommend pick this from the free offering!

Will a screen protector be ok in this case? Most other cases I have peel of the screen protector.

I tried using a Griffin Screen protector and the bottom edge tends to get caught up against the bumper as I remove the phone in/out of my pocket. If you want to use screen protector, I would advice trimming the screen protector so it gives the bumper a small amount of margin (we are talking about 1mm here).

I have it with the Zagg invisible shield and its perfect its already trim a bit smaller than the actual screen so you avoid the cover peeling the shield from the edges of the phone.

I had a zagg protector on my 3G but tried out the anti glare gecko (matte finish) it's amazing and you can tell from looking that there is a protector on it...
