X-Doria is a consumer mobile accessory brand and I was sent one of their stylish iPhone 7 X-Doria Defense Gear cases to review.
Upon arrival, the case was packed in a modern, stylish box which allows you to see the colour and design before opening it. This case was a beautiful rose gold colour.
The case was very easy and straight forward to fit onto my iPhone and once on it looked great and holds the phone very securely.
The case really protects my phone and despite the protection it does not feel bulky at all. At first It felt quite angular and slightly sharp after being used to previous cases with a more rounded style but the sharpness very quickly wore off and the material is such that it glides into my pocket and handbag.
I could still charge my phone and take photos with the case on, which is a big plus for me as I have had previous phone cases where I have had to take the case off before taking a photo.
After a week of using the case it has not scratched or discoloured around the edges or on the metal styling on the back.
I am very impressed by this iPhone case, after dropping my phone twice over the last week neither the case or the phone have been damaged, proving how protective it is. X-Doria describe the case as ‘Defense Gear – a full body, no bulk case‘ and it certainly didn’t feel bulky but did feel secure.
Defense Gear is a full body, no bulk case for iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, with four materials infused together for military grade drop protection, including a scientifically proven DropShield™ edge lining that hardens on impact. Defense Gear combines DropShield™ technology with hard polycarbonate, TPU and anodized aluminum. The case is engineered with enhanced corners and a 0.1 inch thick frame that provides dual layer protection and shields all angles of your device. The Defense Gear case can withstand drops from up to 6’6”. Available colours include: Space Gray, Silver, Gold, and Rose Gold.
Although the price is slightly higher than other phone covers (retailing at £24.99 on XdoriaLife.com) I do feel it is worth buying as it will save you money in the long term, as the case is built to last and you wont have to pay to get your iPhone mended or replaced if you drop it!
