The latest iPhone cases for work and workout

Craig of That Dapper Chap reviews iPhone cases available from The WT Factory Shop for business and for working out.


Mobile phones are everywhere, every one has one and they all look the same. So, how do you make yours stand out? How do you inject some of your style into your accessory and give it some personality? With a cool case, that’s how!

The Lux Box Case, a classy edition to your iPhone

The Wonderful Things Factory have a range of phone cases to suit every aspect of your lifestyle. I opted for the real wood veneer case priced at £38.00 ($55.00 or 49Euro) it’s a good price for a classy piece of kit. It fits like a glove and looks really sharp and sophisticated.

The wooden veneer Lux Box Case

The team really liked this case. “it’s unusual to have a natural product like wood” said katy. Sam commented that “It’s really classy compared to a lot of tacky plastic cases that are out there, with cartoon characters and the like. This is a very grown up case”

The case is relatively easy to remove and replace when you need to, with a bit of practice. It’s a very snug fit so it does take a bit of work to understand the best way to remove it. I find that taking the top left corner out followed by the right corner works, you can then slide the phone out. It clips back in super easy.
You might ask why you’d need to remove the phone from the case, well I’m about to explain!

If you’re a runner like me or you go to the gym and record your workouts on the various Apps there are, you’re going to need your phone. This is where the SlimClip case comes in. Okay, it’s not flashy and it isn’t going to win any prizes for materials or aesthetics. But what it will win points for is practicality.

Available in a variety of colours this handy case clips right onto your shorts and you’re good to go. Priced at £27.00 ($40.00 or 36Euro) it’s handy to have around. When I run I use the Nike Running app and always held my phone in my hand while running. I was always worried about tripping and either dropping my phone or simply smashing it on the ground as I attempted to break my fall. Now I don’t have to worry!

Super slim and simple, the SlimClip Case

Clipped on and ready to run. SlimClip stays in place

The brand claim that you can ‘Run, Bike, Hike & workout’ I wouldn’t recommend swimming however;). I was a bit dubious about it’s ability to remain in place but I found that it you tie your shorts well and then clip the case on, it won’t move. The first time I used it I didn’t tie my shorts and simply relied on the elastic. Bad move! The phone bounced around and my shorts did start to fall down. Not something you want!
