Exclusive, officially licensed hard plastic protective cover for the iPhone 5 featuring the iconic Atari logo inside and outside.

Who are GEAR4?

From their website:

GEAR4 is owned and managed by Disruptive Limited. Established in 2004, Disruptive Limited is independently owned and was one of the first companies in the world to launch a dedicated brand of iPod accessories. The Product Development and Marketing teams, which are based in the UK, are committed to helping you get the most out of your SmartPhone or tablet. GEAR4 has both strong speaker and accessory ranges – the culmination of our passion for music, and the desire to maximise the capabilities of your device.

What’s in the box?

The box only contains the cover (although the box has images from the classic game Asteroids all over it).

A Closer Look

On the back of the cover is the Atari logo and inside the case is a graphic representing pong – I used to love that game as a kid! No one will ever see the inside of the cover but it made me smile to think about it.

Using the Cover

The iPhone 5 slips in the cover easily and feels very stable. Removing the iPhone from the cover was fairly easy to and didn’t involve me needing a screwdriver to force it off like other covers I have tried recently.

Final Thoughts

The case comes in either Red/White (the one we are reviewing) or Green/Black – both of which look great.

The case is very sturdy and feels very secure, I am more than happy to leave my iPhone 5 in it! The cover is made of hard wearing plastic and give you access to all buttons and ports on the iPhone.

If you want a really cool retro cover for your iPhone 5, then go grab the Atari cover from GEAR4. This is now my permanent iPhone 5 cover.

The price of the cover is £19.99, so it’s certainly in line with a lot of covers, and its cool (did I mention that)?
