I used to look more at the price to something else when I buy a hull (when you buy a smartphone at €700 told it already spent enough like that, finally me in any case:D), and so I use Chinese to maximum € 5 and many shells often even less than that…) But, even if it is better than not to have at all, when I see the quality, I can not help wonder if they protect really my precious toy, so I jumped at the chance when I had the opportunity to test a hull Otterbox anti-shock in order to compare a product"white" and this brand recognised for its reliability.
Package contents and advice on components:
-The packaging itself is nice and very pro (small metal handle on the top of the box); It does not serve much, certainly, but personally it always makes me happy to receive items in packages that do not low-end especially an article at this price ^^-a screen protector + small cloth to clean the screen before placement-l A protective hull, in two parts:
–a flexible synthetic rubber part to place first
– a rigid part polycarbonate in place after the flexible part
(I was afraid to force so that it goes well but I had to insist).
The whole weighs 63g. > Flexible part has covers that cover the buttons volume, ignition, and openings for loading and headphones, everything is so well protected from dust. Access to the pen is left free. > The rigid part is thick, it feels when you take in hand the phone there is a little extra thickness, but material offers a good grip, which is rare with one hand given the size of the phone. However it slides well when you want to put it in his pocket, which is an important thing in all cases in which ^^ already for me had hulls anti-shock hard to make it fit in my pocket or the pocket of my bag so much material gripping the surrounding tissue :-/. With regard to the protection of the phone thanks to the shell, difficult to judge in practice (my dedication during the tests will not go up to swing my phone on the ground, still eh must not push: D), but due to the thickness of the solid part and the fact that everything is well coated (soft part "eats" a little more on the edges of the screen that other hulls already tried (, and absorbs shocks), it inspires a feeling of confidence and quality.
This shell is even prettier in real than in photo (I took the color "glacier" but it is also available in black), access to all the buttons remains very convenient (I had just a little trouble the first few minutes to press the center button because of the BO Rd of the hull that goes back a little on the screen but it was made very quickly), she holds in hand, in short she left to stay a while on my phone, I recommend it without hesitation and realize thanks to this one that the quality it pays and that it Worth putting the price to protect our smartphones!
