Two Minute Review of the Cygnett TubeMap Case for the iPhone 4S

Having a case for iPhone 4S is a good idea. The one time I went out without one happened to be the time I dropped it and the back shattered! I also travel in London a lot and so a case that also includes a London Underground Tube Map was something worth looking at.

Cygnett describes the TubeMap case as:

Ditch the A-Z when travelling in central London, with this scale Tube Map wrapped around your iPhone 4S or iPhone 4. The glossy, pocket-friendly case features all the city’s most famous Underground stations to plot your journey around The Capital, including Tottenham Court Road, Leicester Square, Oxford Circus and Covent Garden.

Final Thoughts

The packaging is clear so that you can actually see the case you are getting which is nice as I have previously found cases that don’t quite match the picture on the box!

Including a screen protector in the box was a good move as that is one less thing to have to buy! I found fitting the screen protector to be fairly easy and I didn’t end up with too many bubbles.

The case is very light so it really doesn’t add anything to the weight of the iPhone 4S.

The case also comes with a 2 year warranty so again a smart move by Cygnett.

The Tube map on the back of the case is easy to read and should help most people to get where they are going – especially at the moment when a lot more people are in the capital for the games (although it is important to note that it isn’t the Tube map for the whole of London, just the central part, but for most people that will be fine).

The cost of the TubeMap case for the iPhone 4S is £14.95 and is worth the money to provide protection for your expensive device! It’s also compatible with the the iPhone 4.
