iFunner iTur iPhone 4 Case not Really Funner [Review]



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.

The Good:

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.

The Bad:

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.

    It is actually very durable. I frequently go out, and after a few too many I drop my phone and it doesn’t have a scratch on it. It’s not a case for everyone. But it is a conversation started when you’re out and about.

    The usual idea is that you would use NFC to set up the link between the two devices and then do an automatic hand over to a different protocol for doing the actual transfer of data – eg Bluetooth,iphone 5

    Um.. are you talking about this here iPhone case or that there brain surgery technique? Haha.

    and then the phone just needs a wallet with a chain and it’s totally set!
