GMYLE Hard Case Metallic Color, a Sony Xperia Z2 Case Review

Looking for an inexpensive way to protect your Sony Xperia Z2? Still want to be able to access the magnetic charging port and the lanyard holes? The GMYLE Hard Case Metallic Color Sony Xperia Z2 Case may be the case for you. Best of all this case is under $7.00! Here’s our video review.

GMYLE is a new case company to me, and I only came upon them when I was searching Amazon for an inexpensive Z2 case; I’m surprisingly impressed.

Sony Xperia Z2 Case


This is a “shell-style case”. That means you won’t get drop or bump protection, but you will have a lawyer of scratch protection. Add a tempered glass screen protector, and you should be good to go… So long as you don’t drop the phone on concrete.

Perhaps best of all, unlike some other cases for the Z2, the GMYLE Hard Case Metallic Color Sony Xperia Z2 case has a cutout so the magnetic charging port will still work while the case is on.


  • Easy access to all buttons, controls and ports without removing the case
  • Not easily fade in color or shape change over time
  • Protects your device from scratches, bumps, and dings
  • Easy to install – just snap on to your device
  • Slim-fit and never make your device looks bulky

  1. Say, is the case made of a cheap sort of plastic, or does it seem more dense and substantial? I’m curious as to how it’ll hold up over time.
