Draco Design Draco IV Aluminum Bumper Case for iPhone 4 Review


As you guys can already tell, I am a case fiend.  Let’s face it, everyone has an iPhone and there is nothing like standing out from the crowd with a case nobody has ever seen.  The look on their face when they ask “Is that an iPhone?” is just priceless.  This is where the Draco IV by Draco Design comes in.  Its very similar to the Element case company that makes the Aluminum Bumper cases for the iPhone 4 and 4S.  Draco Design is a company from Japan that has brought their Deff Cleave Bumper Case to the US in the brand of the Draco IV.

The Draco IV is made out of a solid piece of aluminum.  The finish is about 90% matte and 10% glossy.  It reminds me of the aluminum band around the iPhone 4.  It costs about $89 and comes in a variety of colors.  The Draco IV hands down beats every single full aluminum bumper case out there for the iPhone 4.  However, Depending on your area, you might notice a drop of just one bar.  This case is not the best protection by itself.  I would highly recommend a front and back skin of some sort.

  • Awesome Design
  • The Curves feel nice in the hand
  • Good Protection
  • 1-2 bar signal loss
  • The Price $$$
  • Certain Accessories wont fit 3.5mm and 30pin dock connector ie headphones or docks.
