Surface Reveal With Metal Kickstand Hands-on (Review)

iPHone 5 surface case

When you look for a new iPhone case, you consider a few things: price, durability, aesthetics, fictionality. You will likely take all of these into consideration if you want to keep your iPhone protected. Seidio’s Surface Reveal is one to consider. We took some hands-on time with it to see how well it suited our needs.

The case is very slim. This means it won’t get in the way of your iPhone usage. It has cutouts so all buttons, switches and ports are easily accessible. You don’t have to worry about flaps or covers to access your charge port. That’s always nice. There is also a cutout that lets the Apple logo show through.

This case is designed as a two piece. They slide onto your iPhone 5 or iPhone 5S, so you don’t have to fight to snap it into place as you often may with plastic cases. It easily slides onto your phone and snaps into place. It also has a felt lining along the inside of the case. This protects your phone from grit and scratches.

Also part of the case is the metal kickstand. It’s magnetic and pops back in easily when not in use. It’s ideal for watching movies or videos on your iPhone. It’s also handy for keeping it upright on the nightstand (while plugged in, if you’d like).

The case comes in three colors: Black, White and Gold. It will match your iPhone 5 or iPhone 5S.

At $34.95 it’s a fair price for a case with a durable kickstand and two-piece design.
