Review by Jordan Trimas
The iFunner iTur is a hard-shell iPhone 4 case that incorporates a wallet compartment, in which you can store a few credit cards and your ID, accessed through a hinged door. But is it really funner than other cases? Nope.
It’s a great concept for those who want to leave their purse or wallet at home when out at a bar, especially now that the iPhone is becoming something of a digital wallet itself.
But if you a persnickety consumer like me, you’ll find that the iFunner is a poor wallet replacement and offers mediocre protection for your cherished iPhone.
Problems in design and construction — the door is at times difficult to open, and other times opens too easily — and cheap-feeling materials (it feels like the same kind of brittle plastic used to make those model airplanes) combine to leave me with worrisome questions: Will my credit card be there after I finish talking on the phone? If my phone takes a half-foot drop, will it still work?
It’s also pretty bulky.
At $45, this case has many improvements to make before I’d consider slapping it on my iPhone.
