    ETA: I removed the link to these cases. I recently became aware that the cases are fake. I never want to lead anyone to buy knock-offs. I was not aware that iFace was a Korean brand, but when you know better, you do better. A link to what, I believe, are the authentic cases is here:

    iFace First Class Case

    This is a very good quality case on par with the $30 and $40 cases (such as Speck and body glove) and they only cost $8.50 each. I bought them in 5 different colors so I can switch when I want.

    The back is slippery but the sides are really grippy. (The back of the phone feels just like the phone without a case.) Power button takes a little more effort to press, but no where near as mushy as an Otterbox. Headphone port is narrow, but my current headphones will fit.

    You can turn the phone screen side down and the screen won't touch the surface. The corners of the phone are well protected.

    I've tried at least 10 different cases and this one, by far, is my favorite. And did I mention the different colors...LOL.

    (Sorry about the blurry pic. I was too lazy to take it again.)

    This is exactly what I have been looking for. It resembles the Samsung or Speck case but with a much grippier side which is what I use to hold onto it, therefore the slippery back doesn't matter so much. Thanks for posting. I want every color, hahaha!

    I put this on my watch list on ebay. I have the tank jelly already and its a similar idea to this case. Ill probably buy one in the next couple of weeks.

    Cool case, but IMHO for ladies ;) For guys, you can find another similar hour-glass shape version with a more agreesive grip. Its on ebay under i.Grip Impact case (for $14.90 shipped from Korea with 2pc premium screen protector)

    Ooh. I like that purple! I may order one of those.

    ETA: I ordered one in red and on in purple. I can't wait to receive them.

    I'm a guy and really like the white iFace case. Lol. Dumb question but how can these cases have that bent shape if the phone/screen isn't curved?

    A mold with extra TPU material? I just assume its not hollow. Perhaps, Ren can comment on that?

    Btw, do you see that extra cut out in upper left corner? Apparently, Korean N2 has a tv antenna built in there. I noticed a few other cases from Korea all having cut out in the same spot. Someone pointed it out to me in another forum about tv antenna.

    How long to ship to the USA from Korea

    Most times shipping from Korea is 2 weeks. Sometimes longer.

    There is no extra cut out at the top on the iFace cases.

    I'll look out for that for when I get the iGrip.

    I did receive the iGrip cases and I don't like them. The volume and power buttons are to easy to press and the case makes the phone uncomfortable to hold.

    I prefer my cases to surround the phone and cover up the front of the phone and protect that more than the back or sides of the phone.

    Agreed that it makes the buttons more prominent- but once you get used to grabbing the phone- without touching them, its fine. . In fact. . I think it's clever they've managed to make the buttons on the case work so sensitivity with the ones in the phone. ...

    In fact for price of £10- delivered from Korea is say it's an absolute bargain! . The build quality is immense!

    Can you please take pics of this iGrip case, front, back, side?
  20. ren857

    ren857 Well-Known Member

    The iGrip case is very flat in the front. I don't recommend putting the phone face down on the table
    with the iGrip.




    The build quality is very good. It just wasn't comfortable to me.

    I just wanted to update this thread to say that I purchased the authentic iFace case from South Korea. I ordered both the first class and revolution cases and I love these cases. I love them so much, I ordered 6 of them in different colors. I'm to lazy to post pics, so here are a couple of short YouTube videos showing the cases.

    By the way, the authentic iFace cases cost about $23 and up each so if you pay any less than that, there is a chance that they may be fake.
