CaseCrown Lux Glider For iPhone 5 Review

Today i'm going to be taking a look at the Lux Glider case by CaseCrown.  The company was founded by computer gadget lovers who have a drive to create high quality carrying solutions for your favorite gadgets.

The product I am reviewing for you guys today is the Lux Glider case in black obsidian.  This product is a slider style case that is comprised of 2 pieces.  The interior of the case is covered in a soft felt like material to ensure the back of your phone remains scratch free.  As you may have known, this style of case may cause issues with lifting up your screen protector.  I am using a Spigen GLAS.tR and it did not have any issues.  Your experience may vary based on the type of screen protector you're using.  In my opinion, normal static cling style screen protectors and most wet install protectors will probably bubble up with this case.

The build quality of the CaseCrown Lux Glider is awesome.  The two parts of the case fit together perfectly and essentially gap-free when installed.  The exterior of the case is covered in a soft touch material that feels great in hand.  The case is comprised of a polycarbonate material that will surely help protect your iPhone 5 in the event of a drop.  As mentioned above, this case does provide a nice amount of lay on the table protection via the raised lip above the screen.

On to the ports and controls, the top of the case has a single cutout that's nicely sized for the sleep/awake button.  The bottom of the case features one large, form fitting cutout to capture the headphone jack, speakers and lightning port.  The left side of the case has one large cutout for the volume buttons and vibrate switch.  The cutouts are nicely sized and shouldn't cause issues whatsoever.

I definitely recommend this case to you guys, just be aware of using it with a screen shield.  CaseCrown does not include a screen shield or anything else in the packaging besides the case for the $24.95 price tag.  It is available in 4 different colors - Red, Purple, Blue and Black.
