I’m very protective about my phone. It’s my lifeline – it’s a phone, camera, calendar, alarm clock, and more. I dropped my previous iPhone early in the summer and cracked the screen to the point where it was almost unusable. Luckily I was only a few weeks away from being able to upgrade, so I didn’t have to suffer too long! Since then I’ve been picky about the cases I use, and try to chose the ones that offer me the most protection from not only dropping and breaking, but also from everyday life at the bottom of my diaper bag. MAPi offers that type of protection for smartphones and tablets in their line of genuine leather cases.
I received an Altos iPhone 5 Flip Case in raspberry leather from MAPi for review. I love the color of this case. It’s bright and fun and really stands out when buried in my bag! The idea behind this case was to integrate the protection of an engineered plastic shell with a stylish leather wallet design. My phone clipped into the plastic cradle of the case quite easily, leaving all my ports free and open for use. The flip style of the case keeps my screen protected from scratches and dings. I’ve never had a flip style case before, and wasn’t sure I would like it, but to be honest, it’s fantastic. I love knowing that my phone is well protected when I’m not using it. This is definitely a great case if you’re constantly throwing your phone in your purse or backpack like I am – I love the sense of security I have with knowing my phone is so well protected. This case sells for $55 on the MAPi site. They also carry some great looking wallet style and belt-clip style cases if you prefer to carry your phone that way.
