Beware Cygnett Apollo case damaged my iPhone for all the wrong reasons.
This is just going to be a quick review on the Cygnett Apollo iPhone 5/5s Case. As you can tell from the title not all is well. I have been using the Cygnett Apollo iPhone case for about 8 months and it was doing the job of protecting my iPhone 5. So I thought.
So after having the case during this time I decided to remove the case and clean my iPhone. Once I took off the case I was surprised to see abrasions all the way around the iPhone. At first I was fairly confused as to what had caused this damage. After all the iPhone had been in the case since the phone was purchased. At first I though there may have been some rocks that had lodged themselves into the back of the iPhone and scratched the aluminium exterior of the iPhone.
After looking more closely at the case I could see silver marks all the way around the interior of the case. Mmmm that is strange. Once I saw this I started playing with the case and noticed when bent that there were some hard plastic spokes that revealed themselves. So the cause was found and is put down to very poor design that has essentially destroyed the exterior of the iPhone. This has pretty much ruined any possibility of resale down the line. From the photos its hard to tell but the abrasions on the iPhone are VERY deep as if someone has used a file.
This Cygnett Apollo case will “protect” your iPhone while also damaging it. Overall very poor design that has not been fully thought through, so BEWARE! If you have had a similar experience or have another Cygnett case please share your thoughts below.
