Pong Research, the company famous for its intelligent cases had launched its Pong Case for the iPad a few months back. The Pong Case boasts of providing the best protection to the iPad, and even boosting its WiFi signal strength, but does it do what it claims to do ? Read on our Pong Case review to know more.

Box Pack

The Pong Case for the iPad 4th Generation comes packed neatly in a good box. The box lists all the specifications and features of the case. It boasts that the case improves performance of the WiFi, and cellular connection to over 2.6 times. It also says that the case reduces health risks by reducing WiFi radiations by up to 52 %.

Box Pack

The box is pretty simple, and inside you can find the case in another paper case. As such the box is very simple and doesn’t include any fancy stuff, so don’t expect any.

Back of the Box

Installation

The Case Supports iPad 2, and 3.

Installing the Pong Case is very easy. The case comes with proper spaces for all the slots on the iPad, and it supports iPad 2, iPad 3, and the iPad 4. Once you insert the iPad inside the case, just push it a little (don’t worry, it won’t break) and it aligns properly.

Pong Case Build Quality

Build Quality

The Cover for the iPad is very sturdy, and is quite a delight to hold. The back side of the case has the WiFi and cellular network boosters at the top, and a small Pong logo at the bottom. As I said earlier, the case has all the openings for the speakers, camera, and other ports.

Back of the case is like a fingerprint magnet, and it attracts fingerprints like sugar attracts insects.

The front of the case that covers the screen looks like real leather. The build quality is pretty nice, and inside there is soft material so that you iPad doesn’t get any scratches. But yes, the back of the case is like a fingerprint magnet, and it attracts fingerprints like sugar attracts insects.

WiFi and Cellular Boosters

Performance

As the case boasted of improving the WiFi and cellular signal of my iPad, I was very excited to test it. And well, the results were quite good. The signal strength now was just a bit better than with iPad without a case on, but much better than iPad with another case. So overall, the case does what it was supposed to do, as it boosts the WiFi signal and also reduces the wireless radiations.

Protection

While you are holding the case it doesn’t seem to be really strong. But that’s all an illusion. I tried bending the case and dropping it from a height and it survived both the situations, and let me tell you this, very few cases survive when I do such things on them. So, if the case can survive this, I can definitely say that it will protect your iPad well.

Origami Stand

The cover allows you to bend it into a V sort of shape, which allows you iPad to actually stand both in portrait and landscape mode.

The origami stand of the Pong Case is something which makes it stand out. The cover allows you to bend it into a V sort of shape, which allows you iPad to actually stand both in portrait and landscape mode.

Origami Cover

The case also allows you to bend it into a triangle, and make your iPad stand on that. So overall, when it comes to giving your iPad legs to stand, hand it down to the Pong Case, and it’ll manage it anyway.

Final Take

While on the features front, the Pong Case for iPad 4 seems unbeatable, the price of over $100 is not cheap. The case boosts the WiFi and cellular signals, and also reduces the harmful radiations of the iPad, but on the other hand for an average user it certainly is expensive. But if you want something more than ordinary in your iPad case, that the Pong Case is the one to go for.
