Moshi SenseCover



Can answer and see callers’ details when closed; light; thin


Not sure about drop protection; a little overpriced



Suitable for the iPhone 5/5s, the Moshi SenseCover looks like another wrap-around case, but its unique, standout feature is right in front of your eyes.

Available in Brushed Titanium (a golden grey colour) and Steel Black (a dark grey colour), the SenseCover’s front cover features a clear plastic window, allowing users to check the date and time with the cover closed, and four horizontal metallic inlays.

These are its distinctive features. Why? Because they enable users to answer calls while the iPhone cover is closed. The four metal inlays, which Moshi calls SensArray pads, allow you to swipe to the right and accept any incoming phone calls. The window shows the details of who is calling. It’s a nifty feature that works really well.

If you already have a cover that surrounds all sides of your iPhone and requires you to flip it open whenever a call comes your way, we are sure you can understand what a pain it can be.

Another positive is the weight of the case: the Moshi SenseCover is super light. It is also very thin, leading us to believe the drop protection from this case wouldn’t be significant.

The case offers just the right amount of flexibility, it’s easy to insert and remove an iPhone, and the cutouts for the camera, Lightning connector, speakers, headphone jack and front-facing speaker are good additions.

Bottom line.

The Moshi SenseCover would be a good choice for fans of wrap-around covers, who receive a large number of calls per day or get annoyed by opening and closing their case to check the time. It’s light and thin, which both are big pluses, but we wouldn’t guarantee serious drop protection. At $59.95, it may also be a little overpriced.
