Slim and minimalist, ShopSystem cases protect your iPhone without being noticed

What if you protected your iPhone without enclosing it in a gigantic block of unsightly plastic? This is what ShopSystem offers you, a French firm specializing in iPhone cases of unparalleled finesse and sobriety.

Unsightly scratches, broken screens or backs, chipped corners: many smartphones bear the marks of our daily lives. And again, we are only talking about small cosmetic inconveniences… Because all it takes is a fall or an unfortunate shock for everything to stop. The slow degradation, or the premature end of our smartphones, is not inevitable, however.

There are many ways to protect these useful and expensive devices, especially when it comes to iPhones. And if “paying attention” already seems like a first step in the right direction, it is not always enough. Fortunately, there are many players on the market whose vocation is to help you protect your smartphone. ShopSystem is one of them, and the least we can say is that it takes its job to heart.

ShopSystem, what is it exactly?

You probably don’t know ShopSystem and yet: this company based in Lyon is currently the leader in the segment of thin protective cases for iPhone in France. Founded in 2008, ShopSystem has adopted a simple philosophy based on two pillars.

The first, and arguably the most important, is to ensure that smartphones are protected as effectively as possible. A task that the team of in-house engineers tackles every day by developing materials and processes capable of withstanding the vagaries of everyday life.

The second is finesse and elegance. ShopSystem makes it a point of honor not to alter the design of Apple products by creating thin and sober shells. You won’t find an imposing logo or garish colors here, but products that follow the lines of the iPhone. Better, ShopSystem systematically takes into account the latest advances from Apple, such as MagSafe, and guarantees that its shells do not interfere with their use.

ORIGINAL: all the know-how of ShopSystem in a shell

The ORIGINAL case perfectly illustrates the philosophy of ShopSystem by offering almost invisible protection to your iPhone. And that’s not an empty word: this high-quality polypropylene shell is only 0.33 mm thick. A second skin that protects your device from daily wear and tear (dust, scratches, friction) and light falls.

Better still, this shell includes additional edges around the screen and the photo block to prevent these elements from coming into direct contact with the surfaces on which you place your phone. A way, once again, to minimize the risk of scratching.

The ORIGINAL shell is available in 5 colors (blue, white, intense purple, space black and total black), including four semi-transparent which reveal the Apple logo. Offered from 34.99 euros for an iPhone SE, it is sold for 36.99 euros for the different models of iPhone 14.

PHANTOM: transparency above all

The PHANTOM shell, on the other hand, takes up the main features of the ORIGINAL, and offers similar protection. However, there are a few notable differences, the first being that this is a completely transparent shell, which allows you to always enjoy the color of your iPhone. Better, the manufacturer guarantees that this hull does not yellow, even after several years.

It is also a shell a bit larger than the ORIGINAL, even if we remain on an extremely thin protection with 0.44 mm thickness. The edges at the level of the screen and the photo unit are again present, for effective protection against light shocks and scratches. To avoid spoiling anything, ShopSystem has given this shell an oleophobic coating which notably helps to avoid unsightly fingerprints.

The PHANTOM shell is offered at the same price as the ORIGINAL, i.e. 34.99 euros for the oldest iPhones (from iPhone 8 to iPhone XR), and 36.99 euros for the most recent models, including the iPhone 14.

What other products does ShopSystem offer?

If the ORIGINAL and PHANTOM cases are the flagship products of the ShopSystem catalog, these are not the only references offered by the manufacturer. Looking closer, it is possible to discover two additional shells (Dana and Invisible), as well as tempered glass screen protectors.

Lakewhen DANA

This shell made of Nylon TR90 and polymer alloy DynaShockP is designed to provide optimal protection for your iPhone. Its thickness of 1 mm, its reinforced corners and the increased protections around the screen and the photo unit allow it to easily withstand shocks and scratches, but also drops up to 3 meters.

This great classic from ShopSystem stands out for its thinness (0.77 mm) and its minimalism. Transparent, it comes to protect your iPhone without altering its design, and offers complete protection, button, cameras and screen included.

Tempered glass protections

Whichever case you choose, the screen is still exposed to bumps and scratches. In order to protect it, ShopSystem offers you its ultra-resistant tempered glass protections (9H hardness index). Perfectly adapted to iPhone screens, they are extremely thin and in no way interfere with the use of the telephone thanks to the compatibility with the Haptic Touch functionality.
