Draco Design's new Draco 5 aluminum bumper case for Apple Inc.'s iPhone 5 features curved lines that look like a ribbon wrapped around a good phone. The product, which is made from high CNC milled aircraft grade aluminum, is manufactured using a 5-axis CNC milling machine. A fast check out the packaging shows an elegant casing. This review is made in order to examine the product's usability and other key features.
The situation has no screen protector, but it comes with hex-type screws. The case's right side includes a hole which allows users to use the smart phone's slot for that SIM card, while the opening based in the bottom is used for that lighting port, microphone, straight earphone plug, and lanyard. The top features a power button and another opening. The Sim slot seems unnecessary, also it affects the case's smooth design. Its shock absorbing features aim to protect the smartphone from accidental drops.
Using the product may be difficult for some users, but the installation process is fairly simple. It calls for positioning the mute switch cover around the phone's switch and aligning case to the iPhone. The casing's upper and left sides have to be pressed first, then the best and lower part. The bolts should then be screwed carefully to prevent damaging the metal.
Draco's cases for that apple iphone 4 maintained for affecting cell phone signal, however the company's current product solves this problem. An iPhone fitted with a Draco 5 was tested for signal loss in various locations, and it was discovered the casing almost had no impact on signal strength despite being produced from aluminum. Other users have reported changes in long-term evolution (LTE) reception, though.
The product is heavy, however the added protection provided by the casing compensates for that added weight. It shape is similar to Samsung's Galaxy S3 smart phone, but Draco's casing has a better metal quality which makes it more attractive. The leading part's edges don't really protect the iPhone's screen, but the raised edges found at the back provide excellent protection for that phone. In terms of ergonomics, it can be asserted the case feels somewhat uncomfortable from the skin. Users of Draco 4 even claim that the new casing's structural design is inferior when compared with its predecessor. However, it is also asserted Draco 5's overall design plays a role in an excellent user experience since it simplifies access to certain buttons. Its thinner appearance enhances the iPhone's look and feel, and how it can contain the phone firmly in place causes it to be easier to make use of.
The aluminum case, that is priced at 90 USD, will come in 6 trendy colors: black, silver, red, blue, purple, and gray. It may be considered a middle-range iPhone case in terms of its current price, nevertheless its excellent features and quality causes it to be a worthy purchase.
