    Rhino Shield just sent me out some PlayProof cases for the iPhone 6s Plus to review and I was really quite impressed. I loved their Crash Guard bumper, so I had high hopes for the PlayProof and they were certainly realized. The case is ridiculously thin and light and comes in a huge number of colors and patterns, and like the Crash Guard, it is supposed to protect your phone up to a 11.5 ft drop. The only thing I don't like so much about the case is its exterior texture. To me, it is kind of slippery. But I tend to love grippy cases!

    Pros:
    * 11.5 ft of impact protection. Wow. Just wow.

    * Amazingly thin and lightweight.

    * Tons of great designs and colors to choose from.

    * Good protective lip around screen.

    * Reasonably big port openings should work with most third party cables.

    * Fits iPhone 6s Plus like a glove.

    * Matte exterior seems pretty scratch resistant.

    * Nice fit and finish.

    * Reasonably priced at $24.99 (plain) and $29.99 (patterned).

    Cons:

    * Matte exterior shell does not offer very much grip. Then again, if you drop your phone in this case, you are probably OK!


    If you'd like more information, here's my YouTube review:



    Thanks!

    Do you think the case would be compatible with a Cinder style screen protector? I understand the Rhino Shield Bumper works with it.

    No, it's not. Not enough room. You would need a screen protector that isn't edge to edge.

    I just ordered the PlayProof in Dark Blue. After watching Kristin's and Aaron's review, I'm excited.

    For Black Friday, they have $5 off the first 1000 orders of the PlayProof.

    OP, can you please report whether the case is compatible with edge to edge screen protectors?
