Accessory manufacturer Qmadix has hit the market with a set of three new iPhone 4/4S covers that vary in price and design but should appeal to a wide variety of iPhone owners. In this post, I'll take a quick look at the Qmadix Bezel Slide-On Cover (US$59.99), the Metalix Snap-On Cover ($29.99), and the Vibe Flex-Gel Cover ($24.99).
Bezel Slide-On Cover
As you might expect from the premium price on the Bezel Slide-On Cover, this lightweight and minimalist case is machined from aircraft-grade aluminum. It's similar in size and shape to Apple's original iPhone 4 bumper, protecting only the aluminum rim of the iPhone from scratches.
Since the aluminum isn't flexible or stretchable, Qmadix had to figure out another way to install the Bezel. The top of the case simply slides on after the iPhone has been inserted into it, and locks to securely hold the phone in place.
The Bezel comes in black, gold, gray, purple and red. The review unit, in black, added a nice touch to a black iPhone 4S. There are strategically placed pads on the inside of the cover to make sure that it fits snugly, and I found the Bezel to be one of the more solid "bumper" type covers I've tested.
