When I got my new iPhone 5, I knew I wanted to get a customized iPhone case. Just about 2 weeks ago, my husband and I upgraded our phones and as always, he chose the black one and I chose the white one. The guy over at Best Buy recommended that we purchase Geek Squad Protection because the phone may “not survive a 4-foot drop”. Even with that warning, we didn’t get the protection plan because we didn’t have the budget for it. But I had to take my phone back to Best Buy twice for replacement because of a couple of issues. The third phone I got worked great so I’m hoping I wouldn’t need to bring it in again for more repairs or exchanges.
That said, I know I need to really take care of my phone. So I’m glad to have had the chance to review the customized iPhone case from Uncommon. Uncommon offers protective cases for various Apple products. They have lots of designs to choose from but you also have the option to get customized iPhone cases.
I’m not too much of a creative person so the thought of customizing was a bit scary to me. I still went for the customized option though. And I just decided to use one of my son’s photos during our vacation to Anaheim, CA last December.
I chose the Black Bezel Deflector Case for my customized iPhone case review.
As you can see in the first photo above, the case has a black lining. They also have the plain Deflector case which doesn’t have the black lining. The photo would just bleed through to the edge of the case. I prefer my case to look a bit plain (or minimalist) when it’s facing me so I went for the bezel.
The photos above show the top, bottom and side views of the customized iPhone case and you can see that the buttons and the ports can easily be accessed.
I like that the customized iPhone case fits really well. Customizing your iPhone case is very easy. Just upload a photo on the Uncommon website. You will need to create an account to customize your case so that they could save your design.
Once uploaded, your photo will be saved on your “My Images”. Just mouse over that photo and you’ll see a couple of options. Click on “Customize and Buy”. You’ll then be taken to this new screen where you’ll be asked to choose which gadget the customized iPhone case is for and which style you want.
There are a couple of other options that you can change in order to design your customized iPhone case. The photo zoom, rotation, and placement can be adjusted and you can also add some text to it.
Once you’re satisfied with your design, just click on “Add To Cart” and you’re done! You can also just save your design if you’re not yet ready to purchase the customized iPhone case.
Uncommon also has cases for other Apple products. Here’s a screenshot of the list on their website:
BUY IT! You can purchase the Uncommon customized iphone case for $34.95 to $39.95 depending on the case style you prefer at www.getuncommon.com.
