Cygnett UrbanWallet Slim iPhone Case Review

Cygnett UrbanWallet Slim iPhone Case Review

With every new iPhone iteration, the screen seems to get larger while the phone seems to get thinner. Part of the appeal of the latest iPhone (the iPhone 6s at the time of this writing) is the thinness of it. So why would you then carry your phone around in a bulky case?

For those who are looking to protect their phone but keep the iPhone 6 or 6s’ slim design, there is the Cygnett UrbanWallet slim iPhone case.

Slim and Convenient

The appeal of the UrbanWallet case is obvious — it means you won’t have to carry around a beefy phone case and it can replace your wallet. For me, this resulted in carrying one less item in my pockets, which is much more comfortable and less cumbersome.

It is easy to see how the case would suit the needs of all types of people. The wallet case’s two-in-one design makes it ideal for taking to bars and nightclubs, beaches and just a quick run to the grocery store. You won’t have to fumble through a stuffed wallet or purse to find your phone, ID or credit cards.

The main goal is convenience, and the case achieves this without shielding your phone’s screen and adding too much extra girth to your slim iPhone.

Design and Durability

While the thin design of the UrbanWallet case looks elegant and feels comfortable, the downside is that guarding your phone comes secondary. The design is brilliant in terms of aesthetics, but your phone could be more vulnerable during drops or falls. Granted, it offers more protection than no cover at all, but it does not offer any protection of the screen or hold down a glass screen protector.

That being said, I dropped my phone a short distance from a table to the floor a few times while the UrbanWallet case was installed and no damage was caused to my iPhone. The case wraps around the corners of the phone to protect the edges from scratches and dings, which is where these flaws typically occur.

The case has three slots for cards, and each is tight to the case’s base. Depending on which card slot you use, cards slide about a third to a little more than halfway in.

When setting your credit cards into the wallet, any doubt that the cards will stay in is immediately erased. The slots wrap a tight grip around your driver’s license and credit cards to secure them. Card slots don’t get loose with use, so the case is built to last.

Since the slots are so tight, you won’t be able to fit in any extra cards. Have only three slots may not be good enough for some, but I found that carrying my license, debit card and a credit card was sufficient. However, the case feels more comfortable with less cards.

My phone felt nearly identical without the wallet case than it did with it on, but once you put cards in, it feels a bit different in your hand. If you have a card in each of the three slots, the cards sticking out may create a weird sensation when handling the phone. You may feel your grip on the phone isn’t as good, but this rarely gets in the way. At no point did I feel like ditching the wallet case because of issues of comfort.


The Cygnett UrbanWallet slim iPhone 6/6s case is the perfect blend of design and functionality. Unlike many phone wallet cases, there is no bulky cover or folding design that hides your screen.

It helps users get rid of pocket or purse clutter, but it doesn’t quite protect your phone the way a durable traditional case does. However, it achieves its two-in-one goal by offering three card slots, and it does this without compromising Apple’s sleek design.
