SGP has always created unique cases for the iPhone 4, but they also have another signature line within their collection that creates a sense of elegance and luxury. One such case in this line is the Vintage Edition Leather Grip Case. Full review after the break.
SGP always incorporates their line of screenshields with their products, in this particular case it is the Ultra Crystal Clear line of shields (our personal favorite). They are thin and easily applied to the iPhone 4. The shields provide great clarity and feel. They alsoincorporate a small microfiber cloth to wipe down your screen before application.
Upon closer inspection of the case, there are minimal markings and logos on the case. Only an embossed signature is located on the back lower portion. The leather is smooth and soft with no noticeble flaws or markings. Even after several days of usage no visible signs of wear appeared.
The inner portion of the case is lined with a red felt textured cloth with a unique logo embossed on it. Through our usage of the case it provided great protection from marring and scratching the back portion of our iPhone 4, while also providing some shock protection.
Once the iPhone 4 is securely snapped into place, the black ring around the camera cut out prevented any sort of issues with flashback from the LED during photo taking.
The only real issue we had with the case was the deep recess that was created by the top portion of the case. It made pushing the standby/wake key difficult at times.
Overall we were quite happy with the durability of the leather and the quality of the construction of the case itself. All components to a good protective snap on type case were present (minus the difficulty we ran into with the deep recess). If you are looking for a elegant snap on type case for your iPhone 4, the SGP Vintage Edition Case may just be for you.
