The Jazzy Case from ingear is a stylish TPU (thermoplastic) style case for the iPhone that combines a good amount of shock and impact protection along with a sophisticated pattern printed on the back. Roll all that into a price tag that’s under $15 and you’ve got another WIN from ingear.

The Jazzy Case comes packaged with a front screen shield for your iPhone. It also includes a small cleaning cloth and a card to help you install the screen shield.

The TPU material allows the case to be easily stretched over the body of the iPhone 4. But once on it contracts to fit tightly around the phone.

On the bottom of the case you’ll find one large cutout for accessing the 30-pin dock connector, speaker and main microphone.

Along the left side there’s a decent sized cutout for the vibrate switch. The volume buttons get covered by the case by still allow for decent feedback when pressed.

On the top of the case there’s a small cutout for the headset jack and the iPhone’s secondary microphone. Like the volume buttons the sleep/awake button also gets covered by the case but still renders a nice amount of feedback when you press it.

The pill shaped camera cut out on the back of the case doesn’t restrict your picture taking in any way. I didn’t have any issues with the flash bouncing back and washing out photos either.

This case offers a good amount of lay-on-the-table protection so you needn’t worry about placing your phone screen side down onto any flat surface.

The Jazzy Case is another super value from ingear. It’s not thin by any means which is what you might expect for a case priced this low. On the contrary, this thick TPU style case has what it takes to protect your iPhone 4 from bumps and small drops and it does so with stylish pattern that separates it from all the other plain colored TPU cases on the market. Combined with a front facing screen shield this is one case TPU style case lovers should check out.

What I Liked: Four colors, inexpensive, includes screen shield

What Needs Improvement: Nothing.
