Konnet HardJAC Graffito – iPhone Case Review

Konnet HardJAC Graffito - iPhone Case Review

My favorite iPhone cases are those that are more a hard shell than a case. They take a minimalist approach to scratch protection and while they don’t offer much, if any, protection from life’s bumps and bruises, these snap-on cases don’t add much weight or bulk to the device. That’s a trade-off I’m willing to make.

The latest snap-on shell I have been reviewing is a case from Konnet. The HardJAC Graffito is a three part-system that I really love using. (Well, more accurately loved since someone took a liking to it yesterday and, as a result, it is now his.) 🙂  Let’s take a look.

There are three parts to this system. The first is the actual shell. It is made of rigid polycarbonate. It offers little or no flex (a good thing), snaps on the phone easily, and once one the phone is a tight fit. It is, in fact, tight enough that it almost feels like it is part of the phone itself. The design has a bit of texture to it. Not enough to be noticeable immediately but it does add a bit of grip to it. That’s a good thing because this case is a bit slick.

The second part of the system is a screen protector. It isn’t the highest quality screen protection I have seen but it does get the job done. At the top and bottom you’ll find the same design as is on the case itself.

The case also comes with a note about a URL that, when visited, will allow you to download free wallpaper for your phone.

In this case the wallpaper is a perfect match to the design at the top and bottom of the screen protector.

If you line the screen protector up with the wallpaper just right (I didn’t obviously) it makes a seamless design on the front AND back.

In all, while I don’t personally love the design I do love the graphic design of the case I do love the design of the case itself. That is why I was using it as my case-of-choice… until someone who liked it more came along.

What I Like:

Tight fit that wraps the iPhone in a super-protective shell

What Needs Improvement:

The screen protector is not of the highest quality

The Konnet HardJAC Graffito is available for $22.99 directly from Konnet. It is available i Pink and Black
