First, the requisite trumpet-blaring disclaimer: I received this Be Pure iPhone 6 case free, for my honest and unbiased review.
I gave the case to my husband for his iPhone 6. I still have an iPhone 5. If it ain’t broke, don’t shell out additional cash to fix it just so you can say you have the newest one… ridiculous. The Joneses called – they want their 1950s post-war economy attitude back.
Anyway, bonus points for presentation: The “nice” black box makes it look like you care what I thought of the box, and I appreciated that in a way that made me wonder why I was appreciating a cardboard box. I digress: It was the sort of box in which you’d expect a higher end tie or wallet to be packaged which we thought fit the product well – it seems like this puppy is targeted at men (although I know quite a few pink and cat-print hating women, myself included, who would prefer to use a mostly plain black case like this one).
The case fit onto his phone securely, which was great since that’s exactly what it’s supposed to do. (SCORE!) It was easy to snap onto the body of the phone, stayed on well, and retained the sleek profile of the phone without adding unnecessary bulk. It says it is scratch-proof – seems like it would be difficult to intentionally scratch it if I tried, so I’ll take their word on that without intentionally ruining the thing. Although, I have to say it’s tempting when you say I can’t possibly scratch it. The metal parts get smudged with your fingerprints, so you’ll probably end up wiping it off a lot – but I guess that’s what they make pant legs for. 😉
The one weird thing that happened: When we tried to remove the case again, we were terrified we were going to break it. It felt like it wouldn’t easily pop off without potentially getting damaged, so we were consciously trying to be super gentle with it. Eventually we were able to take it off of the phone and neither the phone nor the case was damaged in the process. I guess you just have to get used to using it. I’m glad it’s his – I’m rough on my things and I’d probably snap it like a twig.
