★★★ If you like the metallic appearance of the new Apple iPhone, but fear the sound of house keys scratching on glass each time you pocket it, Cygnett could have a solution. The Aviator iPhone 4 case is made from aluminium and comes in two pieces that fit snugly around its industrial form. The solid case is lined in black plastic, to protect your iPhone’s glass rear from harm, and plenty of generous openings ensure your headphones, camera and charging port remain open for business. The main downside of this case is that its metal form can trap the phone’s heat and make it warm to touch, a nerve-wracking side-effect for heavy talkers.
