    iPhone 6 (4.7”) Tech Armor Case Reviews

    First and foremost I want to make it clear that this review is my opinion and my opinion only of the below products. I am not an employee of Tech Armor nor am I affiliated in any way. This post is not a promotion it is my review on products I have for my iPhone 6 that I want to share with all of you. I will be posting more reviews in the future with other products from other companies as I receive them.

    This is my first attempt at an accessory review so if you have any questions regarding any of these cases please feel free to contact me. I will do my best to answer all questions and if I do not have an answer I will do my best to get you one. If I do not have the answer to your question I will do my best to find the answer for you.

    Enjoy the review!

    - Fingerprint and Scratch Resistant Backing

    Lightweight yet tough PC and TPU materials provide durable protection without added weight. The tactile finish makes it easy to handle and reduces the chance of drops.”

    My Review

    DESIGN:
    The Active Series case by TechArmor is build well for what it is; the material used feels like a harder plastic but is still pliable but not loose fitting (it provides a snug fit). Unfortunately the case hides the beauty of the iPhone 6 itself however it does expose the stainless steel Apple logo on the back. The charging port and headphone are easily accessible, the volume up/down and sleep/wake button are responsive and have good tactical feedback. The vibrate/ringer switch is also easily accessible and haven’t noticed any issues. The active series case comes in the following color options: Black/Black, Space Gray/Black, White/Cool Gray, Gold/Cool Gray, and Pink/Cool Gray.

    PERFORMANCE:
    This case offers drop protection (as far as denting/scratching) for your phone and is yet still very thin. Out of the group of cases that TechArmor sells for the iPhone 6 I would say that this offers the most protection from dings but I’m not testing that on my iPhone 6. When laying down the phone face down on the screen the case offers some protection and keeps your phone screen from touching the surface which you lay it on directly. Long story short if your looking for a case that adds some protection at an affordable price you cant to wrong with the TechArmor Active Series case.

    My Review

    DESIGN:
    The FlexProtech series case by Tech Armor like the Active series is made with a pliable plastic material. Unlike the Active series however this case is a little more loose fitting yet secures the phone just fine. Through my use I have noticed at times materials (hairs, crumbs, dust) do get inside of the back cover of the case. These are noticed because also unlike the Active series this case shows off the beauty of the iPhone 6 with its see through backing. The charging port and headphone are all easily accessible, the volume up/down and sleep/wake button are responsive and have good tactical feedback and the vibrate/ringer switch is also easily accessible just like the Active series case. Colors available are: Space Gray/Crystal Clear, Cool Gray/Crystal Clear, Frosted/Crystal Clear.

    PERFORMANCE:
    This case offers the same drop protection as the Active series however I do believe that due to the plastic material depending on the angle this case it dropped it may damage your phone as the material is more flexible. When laying down the phone face down on the screen this case also offers some protection and keeps your phone screen from touching the surface which you lay it on directly. If your looking or a case that adds some protection to your phone while showing off the beauty of your devise you can't go wrong with this case.



    Slim Protect Product Description

    DESIGN:
    Slim Protect series case by Tech Armor is unlike the Active or Flex Protect series cases. This cases is basically a “barely their” style case. Out of the other two cases in this review this style for me personally is my least favorite from any manufacture. However if you like like this type of case I will tell you the benefits of this case.

    The Slim Protect case is made of a harder plastic (thing of Otterbox Defender Series Plastic) it is very rigid. The volume up/down, sleep/wake, and silent/ring switch are all exposed along with the ports on the bottom (headphone, charging, speaker). If your looking to protect your phone but show it off at the same time with a minimal “barley their” case this is a no brainer. The best color to achieve this in my opinion is the Frosted/Crystal Clear option. Other options available are Space Gray/Crystal Clear, and Cool Gray/Crystal Clear.

    PERFORMANCE:
    I’d say this case offers NO drop protection so be careful not to drop your phone if using this case. While it offers no drop protection it does offer protection against scratching the back of your shiny new iPhone 6. Putting my phone into this case I was honestly scared I was going to scratch my iPhone. With the curved edges of the iPhone 6 you have to push the phone into this case which causes the case to flex some and kinda snaps into place. Taking the phone out of the case is a whole other pain in itself; when I was removing my phone from the case I felt like I was either going to scratch the heck out of my phone or was going to break the case. Overall if I was using this case to show off my phone but provide scratch protection the obvious chose would be the Frosted/Crystal Clear color option. Other options available are Space Gray/Crystal Clear, and Cool Gray/Crystal Clear.


    NOTE: All cases offer protection for the screen as well as for the rear camera (even though the camera protrudes).


    Warranty: Tech Armor offers a Lifetime warranty on all the cases reviewed above and yes that means LIFETIME with no (*) at the end of that sentence. So far I have not had to try this but have seen a few users who have submitted claims and had no issues getting a replacement.

    Tech Armor Case Reviews (Active, FlexProtect, and SlimProtect Series)

    Just doing my review. I like to go big or go home when I do these things haha.

    I'll tone it done a bit though in the OP. In addition to the above review though I will be attaching actual photos of the case on my iPhone 6 in the post above.
