Editor's Ratings (1-5): 4
What's Hot: Very slim and light, has Lady Gaga styles.
What's Not: No protection on top or bottom of the phone, no soft touch coating.
We've looked the Torn case from LuxMobile's Lady Gaga iPhone 4/4S case collection which is an ultra slim case that has a striking design. But for the uninitiated Lady Gaga fan, the Born This Way case and the Queen case are more Lady Gaga style than the Torn case is. First of all, the Born This Way case uses one of the artist's most famous portraits as design. The Queen case has Lady Gaga's signature feather and gold jewelry design . Both cases are thin yet functional.
The Lady Gaga Born This Way and Queen cases have a very similar design as the Torn case for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. These are one-piece snap on cases made from ultra thin shock absorbing plastic material. Difference between the Torn and these two cases is that the Torn case has a very nice soft touch rubber coasting that not only feels nice in your hand but also protect the iPhone 4/4S a bit better. The Queen and Born This Way cases just have the plastic interior, though it does feel smooth. As with the Torn case, you can slide the iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S in on one side and push it into the case from the other. The material has some flexibility making it easy to put the case on or take it off.
The biggest attraction in design, at least for fans, is Lady Gagaís striking portrait on the back of the Born This Way case. The Queen has a more subtle design, but any Lady Gaga fan will recognize the peacock colored feather and gold pearls made popular by Lady Gaga. Combining a super star and fashion, the Queen and Born This Way cases are Lady Gaga fansí ideal protective gear for their iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S.
As with the Torn case, the Lady Gaga Queen and Born This Way cases are super slim. The case covers the back, sides and corners of the iPhone 4/4S, but leaves most of the top and bottom of the phone open. The cases come with film protects that you can use to cover the front of the iPhone 4 with the included installation kit. While the cases cover the sides of the phone, it doesnít wrap around the edges, so you will probably need the film protector if you worry about scratching the screen when you put the phone face down all the time.
The case offers easy access to all ports and buttons. Since the top and bottom of the phone are largely exposed, the 30-pin connection, mic and speaker on the bottom of the iPhone 4/4S, the power button and 3.5mm audio out jack on top are all out in the open. The case has a large side cutout for the silence button and volume buttons, and the cutout should accommodate both the Verizon and AT&T versions of the iPhone 4.
LuxMobileís Lady Gaga iPhone 4/4S case series did a good job at making these products unique. Fans of the artist will immediately associate the cases with their favorite artist when you see them, and they are great to show fansí support and love for the artist and for collectors alike. The case is highly functional thanks to the accessibility to all ports and buttons including the rear camera and flash. Itís an ultra slim case, though it covers all four corners of the phone, itís not for someone who puts their phone through rough treatment like serious bumps and drops. But if you only need minimum protection, the Lady Gaga cases can provide that with a style.
