cellhelmet iPhone 4S Case Review
There are many cases out there that offer maximum protection from just
about anything under the sun. While a couple of them really deliver on
their promises there has yet to be an iPhone case that offers an
accidental damage coverage along with case itself. That’s what the
cellhelmet case offers with its 1 year damage coverage assurance.
Continue ahead for the full review on the cellhelmet case and see how it
fairs after putting it through its paces.
are other cases out there such as a LifeProof or Otterbox case that
give you a huge amount of protection from drops and even water. However
the cellhelmet case is the first on the market to offer a 1 year
accidental damage coverage assurance against anything you throw its way
besides water damage. Keep in mind this is only against ACCIDENTAL drops
so I would doubt they cover anything if you damage your phone purposely
which I couldn’t imagine you wanting to do anyways.
first step once you get your cellhelmet case is to register your case
for its 1 year coverage with the included registration code card. Just
call the phone number on the card and scratch off the field for your
registration code and follow the directions to register it and your good
to go. Keep the card somewhere safe if anything should happen to your
phone you will want to have your code and cellhelmets phone number
handy. You will want to make sure you register your case with them
within 30 days of purchase to ensure you will be covered.
cellhelmet is made of a very strong and sturdy plastic material that is
unlike a plastic I have seen before in an iPhone case. The plastic is
extremely rigid and tight ensuring your iPhone and the cellhelmet will
morph perfectly for a nice fit. The entire outer of the case is very
smooth to the touch and very grippy which will ensure you hopefully
won’t have to take them up on their 1 year coverage. The cellhelmet case
is also made entirely in the good ol' USA so big thumbs up to them for
also provide interchangeable PVC backplates along with your case to
give your iPhone a little touch of customization. The backplates act as
an additional layer of glass protection as well which is nice.
your iPhone into the case is fairly easy and once in fits like a glove.
There is absolutely no room for anything to get in between your iPhone
and the cellhelmet case. This is one of the reasons I like this case so
much is that its stays so compact and tight it never bulks your iPhone
up at all like with the other super protective iPhone cases out there.
is covered on your iPhone besides your actual screen which is kind of a
bummer. Even though the main selling point of this case is that its
covered if you happen to shatter the screen it would be nice if they
somehow included a front screen protector in the design of the case to
just give you that extra piece of mind. Just because the iPhone is
covered by the insurance along with the case I don’t want to have to
take them up on that claim down the road if I don’t have to.
of your ports and buttons are easily accessible all around the phone
with no problems charging or using 3rd party headphones. The lock button
is covered with a very different design that I have not seen in another
case. The raised plastic cover ensures an easy press of the lock button
no matter the angle.
you do happen to damage your iPhone while using the case the process is
simple to get it to them for repair. Give them a call at the number
listed on your registration code paper and one of their customer service
reps will let you know what you need to get your iPhone to them. You
pay a $50 handling fee to send your iPhone to them and it will be
repaired or replaced if the iPhone is deemed unrepairable within 3
business days and will be overnighted back to you. Very good stuff from
the people at cellhelmet if I do say so myself. Considering other
insurance companies still charge more for a handling fee of sending it
to them and you don’t have to deal with monthly fees with cellhelmet
it’s a no brainer to get one instead of using an insurance coverage
I said the overall profile of this case is really outstanding. Hands
down you will not find another case that offers this much protection
with a profile this slim. The case while it may look a tad bit
uncomfortable to hold is actually not bad even after long use I got used
to the raised corners of the case and it wasn’t an issue. I can
definitely say the people over at cellhelmet are doing great things and I
hope they continue on their mission of producing top level protection
cases that offer a replacement guarantee in the slimmest form factor
possible. Go check out the several different color options they offer
and get one immediately if you’re at all worried that slippery piece of
Apple goodness could one day fall to pieces.
