Review and Giveaway: AT&T AGF Vandelay iPhone 4 Cases

As the summer heat peaks in August, it’s exciting to observe the increasing availability of iPhone 4 cases. This surge is timely, particularly as some users express dissatisfaction with the complimentary Apple Bumper they received.

TUAW has recently reviewed two AGF Vandelay cases, which not only boast a stylish appearance but also include a practical belt holster. These cases are distinctive enough to be featured in AT&T Stores across the country, and they allow the iPhone 4 to be docked while still encased.

AT&T plans to offer these impressive cases in two designs. The first option features a soft touch plastic with a micro-patterned red leather back, which I found particularly elegant.

The second option is crafted from black polished plastic with a carbon fiber-patterned leather back. Both models come equipped with a belt clip/holster, which can be adjusted to suit personal preferences.

The cases are designed for ease of use, allowing for quick installation and removal. The bottom part of the case can be detached swiftly, facilitating immediate docking. Additionally, the belt clip includes a small lock that doubles as a “kickstand,” providing a stable setup for viewing videos or engaging in FaceTime conversations.

Importantly, the Vandelay cases do not require the iPhone 4 to be oriented in a specific direction, offering flexibility in how the phone is carried.
