Russian company Clever is engaged in development of accessories for portable devices, including Apple equipment. It would seem, it is ordinary, because producers of that sort of production there is an infinite quantity, but only units in the middle of them are truly allocated. Someone uses expensive skin and offers elite devices, for example Vaja or Dublon Leatherworks, someone takes adaptability to manufacture and the unusual thoughts embodied in a finished product. Clever decided to connect an innovatorsky approach to design of covers and expensive materials. Left curiously, especially and that the most important, functionally.
Clever Carbon Cover Luxury Series cover on the 1st look looks as an ordinary slip and … actually, it and is an ordinary slip with that only distinction that it from rather technological and concerning the material most rare in branch — carbon fiber is executed, it карбон. Moreover, in the range there is a smooth glossy option and more usual for that material teksturirovanny the opaque. In the review we will study the 1st.
After a device you take in hands, to a descent you notice two things: it is indescribably easy, actually weightless, and is very thin. At all this there is no feeling certain angularity or the general hlipkost. All sides are rounded, any sharp is not present. To tell that the slip is made аккуратненько — it not to tell anything. I, frankly speaking, for the first time deal natural karbony and now perfectly I understand, for what this material is appreciated. As though also remembers plastic, but to associate a considered product with ordinary slips from polycarbonate and other analogs all the same, what to compare any aviation aluminum, stainless steel or the titan and rykhlovaty metal, like of what chesnochnitsa are made. Anonymous Chinese offices adore that to use in own cheap covers, copying unique products. Generally, Clever Carbon Cover Luxury Series makes very positive, correct reminiscence even prior to the beginning of operation.
The cover on phone simply is fixed, it is enough to enclose iPhone and a little to press down before click. Keeps firmly, does not drop out also the voobshchy looks wholly. The small thickness allows to advise a device even to fans of use of films — Clever Carbon Cover Luxury Series actually does not increase phone dimensions though it is natural, influences its external shape, but influences in the best party if you like carbon fiber.
The slip very beautifully and especially looks. It is perfectly poured on light, but at all this does not gleam, as analogs under nacre. As to luster, on the one hand, it is attractive, perfectly looks, very smooth, but, with another, bears in itself classical minuses, and concretely, perfectly collects fingerprints though the structure and color in a certain degree hide them, plus promptly becomes covered by small scratches and, completely can be, eventually there will be perceptible attritions. I will note that tsarapinka are visible only under a certain corner and it is necessary to get accustomed perfectly still, but, nevertheless, they arise rather promptly.
The price of Clever Carbon Cover Luxury Series is in borders of 1700 rubles. For opaque and glossy models cost is similar: the 1st looks more effectively, but the 2nd — is more practical.
- small weight and thickness;
- protects not only only a back and iPhone sides;
- very much the highest quality of performance, traces of punching is not present.
- rather easily soiled and rather promptly becomes covered by small scratches (glossy option).
Traditional leather панч with vertical the flipy
Clever Case Leather Shell on own design remembers the cover of SGP illuzion Legend Black considered earlier, but skin at the device which has fallen to me into hands makes more pleasant memories. On tactile feelings remembers Vaja production.
Flip leans back down, is fixed at the expense of a rigid hook, a case does not reveal and keeps rather strongly. It should be noted that such hooks can polish eventually a part of the top side of iPhone and form attritions. On the last measure so at me was with mentioned above SGP illuzion Legend Black, but there edge more rigidly and more sharply. Also, a forward part флипа myagenky (in small borders) — it демпфирует blow. Its base quite rigid to sustain even strong and sharp dot pressure (casual blow about a table corner when falling, for example).
The lower part of a cover represents the plastic slip trimmed with skin outside and something reminding suede — снутри. It is impossible to call it very narrow or small-sized, quicker, completely standard size which is not differing from such at Vaja, SGP or Zenus. Though, it is necessary to direct attention that unlike a number of rivals at Clever Case Leather Shell the plastic base on internal sides is visible. In the majority videnny skin or any substitute was me covers of that sort there.
On the other hand, Clever device often costs cheaper the competing goods, in borders of 1000 rubles. Except the snow-white option shown in pictures is also traditional dark with a similar stamping of skin.
Enough highest security belongs to pluses of that decision located снутри iPhone 4/4S, plus convenience of operation. Flip it is simple to cast away and set up to the place of one hand. In the middle of minuses I will allocate rather solid increase of dimensions of phone (plus about 3 mm by the thickness), also tangible weight.
- quite good level of protection of iPhone 4/4S;
- high-quality genuine leather;
- rather small price.
- the plastic basis of a slip on internal sides is visible;
- tangible increase of dimensions of phone.
For a dessert there was the most unusual, on my moderate look, a cover from all considered above — Clever Sticker Flip. It is own sort a hybrid from described it is sensitive earlier панча and stickers on the back panel, added with multipurpose cuts.
The device is very thin and phone dimensions practically does not increase, at all this protects both its back part, and a lobby. By the way, behind there is a cut under an apple for those who does not like to hide this known decorative element of design of production of Apple. On iPhone the unusual product keeps at the expense of a sticky layer, keeps strongly, and exactly to paste it it is possible. To unstick, by the way, too it is easy.
Owners of transparent films on the back panel of phone can not worry. With me too such remained from a previous overlay of Moshi, and it perfectly got on with a new cover. It was not torn off at all when I several times re-stuck Clever Sticker Flip, leveling it.
Lateral sides are actually defenseless, but on each side both plates of a cover a little act, in other words on an equal surface if to put phone sideways, metal the rim will be in air.
As to materials, it is what skin or, speaking more simply, кожзам. Unlike anonymous Chinese products from an imitation leather, Clever Sticker Flip does not knock down a smell of terrible chemicals. Quicker, on the contrary, it smells rather pleasantly, something is remote remembers a smell of the latest, only the unpacked equipment of Apple. It, naturally, a trifle with a smell, after all though what, even the most awful «Chinese штырево» rather promptly disappears, but a trifle pleasant.
Snutri is used an artificial material, on tactile feelings reminding suede. It myagenkiya and even a little clears the iPhone screen that in particular is perceptible, when throw back флип and see pair of fat strips on a place of cuts, and other screen is pure. By the way, these cuts there are not simply so.
For deduction флипа it is used small хлястик with a magnet. Direct attention to that fact that the magnetic fastener can influence work of the electric compass built in iPhone. Though the magnet there absolutely weak, should not deliver special troubles. At all this it firmly keeps a cover in the closed condition. Voobshchem, the design is collected such makary that having thrown флип one movement over the screen to be puzzled with placement magnetic хлястика it is not necessary, it will be pasted by the machine gun where it is necessary.
So here, thanks to cuts it is possible without opening флипа to answer a call, at all this лицезрев who calls. For the colloquial loudspeaker there the opening too is. Comfortably? Not that word, magnificently! Not how showed experiences, cut is useful to viewing of the current time, and even the audio is simple to operate a player.
Can seem that the device is shaky or will cling to a pocket of very narrow jeans. My not so very narrow and absolutely free them not to call. The whole day dragged phone in a pocket, incalculable quantity of times it from there took and pushed back — discomfort did not feel. Rigid 12-hour operation, including hit in hands of the 2-year-old kid, did not leave on a product of perceptible traces. Let’s have a look, as it will be further but while everything is excellent.
In the range of Clever there are 12 options of color design of a device, on though what taste and color. The price of an unusual cover makes only 780 rubles that is comparable with certain firm protective films. A pleasant product for small means.
- narrow and easy;
- protects forward and back panels, also partly lateral sides;
- it is simple to open and close one hand;
- multipurpose cuts;
- it is possible to charge iPhone, without throwing back флип;
