Phone Cases for P9 and iPhone 6/6S

It seems a shame that virtually no phones come with a protective case as standard. Here are two offerings the first for the excellent Huawei P9 and second for either the iPhone 6 or 6S, the first called Tudia and the second Defense.

Huawei P9 case Tudia

This is a light but strong case to protect what is a very good camera phone yes the one with the dual Leica lenses.

This is my phone camera of choice and I have taken a lot of great images with it apart from it doing everything else expected of a quality phone.

When you say to a lot of case manufacturers what cases do you have for the P9 or P9 Plus the normal response is silence, so when I was offered this I certainly made space in my review schedule.

This was sent to me from the USA hence the weight being stated as ½ ounce, it fits the unit exactly and certainly will not fall off as it goes round all four sides and the back with a cutout on top for the microphone and along the base for the speaker, USB 3.1 port to charge, the second microphone and the 3.5mm socket for headphones or earbuds.

The right side has buttons that exactly cover the volume up/down rocker and the on/off button. Finally there are two cutouts on the back for the fingerprint scanner and the dual Leica lens and the LED flash.

The advantage of the case going round all the sides and just touching the front is that if your SmartPhone falls flat on the ground you should avoid damage to the screen the only time this would not help is if it fell directly onto something that protrudes from the ground like a stone and unless you have a full screen covering nothing would help in this scenario.

The covering is called high quality soft Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) rubberized gel silicone with stylish TUDIA edging at the base of the case.

The Tudia P9 case is available from Amazon in the UK for £7.99.

iPhone 6 or 6S Defense by x-doria

This item is certified to survive a 6 foot 6 inch drop onto concrete and is described as military grade, the model I was sent is for an iPhone 6 or 6S.

The frame is aluminium and has a raised lip you insert or remove your iPhone via a flip up catch that allows you to slip your iPhone into the case, then clip it shut and your iPhone is then going nowhere without the case.

The edges are rubberised to give protection to the face apart from if it lands on something sharp that is raised.

A four point illustration guide is found on the inside of the case to provide fool proof fitting and removal instructions.

The back is raised soft rubber to protect with a cutout top left for the camera and LED flash. The right side has a push control over where the on/off button is and the left side has a similar fitment over the volume up/down rocker. Three cutouts for fitments along the base and another just above the volume rocker mean everything is accessible

The Defense Lux for iPhone 6 or 6S is available from Amazon for £22.19 at the time of publication. Other colours are available.
