Product Review: The Snugg's Real Bamboo iPhone Case

The Snug Real Bamboo Wood Case for iPhoneWhen the nice people at The Snugg asked me if I'd like to review one of their products, I gladly said yes because they have a reputation for making quality tablet, phone, and eReader cases with a hard-to-beat guarantee.

For almost a year, I had been protecting my iPhone with a clunky blue plastic case, and I was ready for a more elegant choice. The Snugg makes a range of leather cases, but when I saw their Real Bamboo Wood Case, I fell in love immediately.

The Real Bamboo case is silky smooth with a semi-gloss finish and nicely rounded edges. Even Mr. BFR (woodcraftsman extraordinaire) was impressed with the quality.  Not only does the case look fantastic but it's well made down to the details. For example, as you can see in the photos, the case is made from a single piece of bamboo, so the split in the back is barely noticeable. See how the grain is perfectly lined up?

The Snugg took great care in designing the Real Bamboo case, however, and all the openings are exactly right.

I tested the recharging cord and headphone outlet and had no issues at all. I took photos, turned the phone on and off, and adjusted the volume. I even listened to a song or two without headphones and can attest that the speakers are not blocked by the bamboo.

The Snugg Real Bamboo Wood Case is easy as can be to slip onto your phone It comes in two parts that go together together smoothly. The inside of the case is covered to prevent scratching, and once on, the case fits, well, snugly!

I realize not everyone is into the look and feel of wood, and so does The Snugg. They make beautiful leather pouches in natural and fashion colors as well as more protective bright plastic covers. And don't think The Snugg is only about the iPhone. They make covers for many brands of smartphones, including Samsung and Blackberry.

I love my new iPhone case so much I've been looking at The Snugg's tablet and eReader covers. There are quite a few styles and colors available for many brands, such as the Nook, the Kindle, Nexus, and iPads. I think families would love the tablet cases that come with a headrest mount so kids can watch a movie in the backseat of the car.

If you're looking for a great Christmas present for the gadget-lover on your list, be sure to check out the The Snugg's website. There's a case for everyone in your family.

Thanks to The Snugg for giving me the chance to provide my honest opinion of one of their products.

i currently have a case made by another manufacturer and it too is padded inside for me thats key because i drop my phone a lot and that padding/lining really helps absorb the shock ... thats a nice case ..

I've never seen a wooden iPhone case and I think that one is gorgeous!

I saw thousands of iphone cases when I was at the CES in Vegas back in January, and the ones that I liked best were the various wood ones. I have a Blackberry and am looking for a case, will be heading to their site to see what they have. Thanks.

So, how about when you drop it? Does it protect well for that? My current phone case bounces and I have dropped my phone down the stairs a few times with no harm... As a result no matter how pretty other cases might look, I am hesitant to switch!

I've never seen a wooden phone case.
I reviewed an iPad cover from Snugg and loved it!
