It’s a clip, a kickstand, an iPhone 4S/4 holder, and to be honest it can be used to prop up small objects using the 360/90 degree swivel mechanism. Formally it’s called the Utilitarian Smartphoen Support System by PureGear. PureGear is known for their high quality and high selection of smartphone accessories and this is no exception. The Utilitarian has an excellent build quality and offers the highest level of protection without sacrificing style. The materials feel firm, attached, and not cheap thus keeping in line with Apple’s sleek and sophisticated lifestyle. It gets an A+ in the design department.
Functionality! It’s called Utilitarian, root word utility, for a reason. The swivel belt clip allows users to clip it on their purse, gym bag, belt or just about anywhere. More importantly is the clip. It pivots 360 degrees and the kickstand 90 degrees horizontal and vertical to allow viewing of movies and other media on your iPhone 4S/4. This feature can also be used in business meetings when you want to put your iPhone on speakerphone and pivot the microphone upwards or downwards depending on preference. There are an unlimited amount of scenarios where the clip comes in handy to accommodate viewing your iPhone’s screen with minimal or no glare at all. I’ve gone into more detail in the below video review.
I didn’t spend much time on the case functionality but it works like a traditional iPhone case that allows protection with a bezel in case you drop your smartphone screen first. The rim protects and allows just enough space to save you a trip to the repair store. The bezel is subdued enough not to interfere with touching the screen, talking or texting I have found. Gripping the case is a breeze, especially when you detach the removable kickstand, so no complication there. As a side-note, the packaging also includes a screen shield and a silk-like cloth to wipe the screen. Nice touch!
Will this case hinder access to the power button, volume, and charging ports…NO! PureGear has done their research and developed an aesthetically pleasing accessory that will allow access to the volume buttons, power, mute selection, and more. Whatever the lifestyle athletic, lethargic, the average job, or a globetrotting traveler the Utilitarian Smartphone Support System will engulf your sexy iPhone with the attention it deserves even if you drop it. It will be okay…TRUST ME! So, overall it’s a top-notch accessory that is SMART. SIMPLE. SENSIBLE. as PureGear clearly states on the packaging.
