Two lanyard attachment details are integrated into the bottom openings. The rigid content makes certain that your lanyard will not fall out of the situation and the situation securely holds your Iphone so lanyard use is entirely secure.


The ideal side button and volume buttons have refined lifted locations for activation. The ideal side button has some texture to enable make it a lot easier to come across it with your fingers. This is the just one design and style spot I would like to see enhanced a little bit as the volume buttons are a little bit much too flush for my wants.

The frame wraps all-around all 4 sides and protrudes just a little bit previously mentioned the show so that your display screen is secured when you set your cellphone down on a desk. The within of the TPU frame has a grey liner that has notches present, probable intended to dissipate shock loads when you drop your Iphone.

The front flap is a little bit scaled-down than the again so that the front rests ideal on the edge of the TPU side bumpers of the again piece as show defense is presented. This situation also provides ten-foot drop defense thanks to the an interior shock absorption bumper.
