Being a college student is rough these days. On top of homework, extracurricular activities, and final exams, there is also an unspoken rule about having the best technology affordable for you and your classes. Walk into any lecture hall and you’ll see an “Apple Orchard” of MacBooks, and so on. It’s a great computer, but we only want it because everyone else has it.
The same can be said for the iPhone 6/6s. It’s affordable and almost everyone has it. But not everyone has the same level of phone protection when it comes to the phone cases. That weird rubbery case you bought from Amazon for $5 will not last 6 months, and your phone will have a new dent, ding, or cracked screen because of it.
However, Incipio may have a solution to that problem of style vs protection. A company that makes their own iPhone, iPad, and custom cases for your devices, Incipio is a leader in the market. One of their newer releases is the Design Series, a set of iPhone 6/6s cases that protects your phone, and along with it your sense of style. The case I am using and reviewing is the Isla Foil Design Case for iPhone 6/6s.
My last review was also over an Incipio case, and I loved it. This other case is from the Design Series as well, but has a different design on the back of the case. As a side note, my mom loves this case, and I’m planning on giving it to her as an early Xmas present!
What I said in my last review holds true for this case as well; durable with a great design, but I did have a few problems with this one. The case is molded to exactly fit your phone, but at the same time is extremely rigid. It took me about 10 minutes to put this case on my phone, and I suspect I’ll have the same struggle in taking it off. Also, the molds for the volume up/down buttons and the on/off button are hard to use too, you have to put force behind your fingers in order to change the volume or turn off your phone.
Other than these slight frustrations, the Isla Foil Design Case for iPhone 6/6s is still a good case. It will protect your pocket computer and will set you off from the crowd, and at $34.99 makes a great last minute gift!
