ZeroChroma really has a winner with the Vario Protect line of cases for the 6 and 6 Plus. I’ve reviewed the 6 Plus Vario Protect separately–it is very similar to the 6, but with slightly different dimensions.
From the front, the Vario Protect for the iPhone 6 is a very nice TPU case, with a decent amount of lip, pleasantly grippy but not too much, and carefully crafted port openings and button coverings. The back of the case is where all the magic is, however. An integrated stand is built into the case which can turn 360 degrees, allowing various types of portrait and landscape stands. In addition, the angle of the stand itself is adjustable, so you can easily move from a typing angle to a movie watching angle and back again. It is really a clever idea and is implemented very professionally in this case.
1. The stand is fantastic. Having both landscape and portrait stand functionality, as well as adjustable angles is something I haven’t seen on any other case, and the stand seems both sturdy and stable.
2. The build quality of the case is excellent and the material has a pleasant feel in the hand.
3. The case comes in a bunch of attractive colors (blue, pink, orange, clear and black)
4. The case is compatible with ZeroChroma’s proprietary armband and car mount systems, which I will be reviewing soon!
1. The stand protrudes a bit from the back of the case. The phone will lie flat on its back, however, and it doesn’t wobble when you press the home button, due to the size and positioning of the stand bulge. It doesn’t protrude very much, and the elevated section covers about half the area of the back of the phone, so the phone lies flat in a reasonably stable manner. It is something to note, but not a deal-killer by any means. Oddly enough, the slight elevation of the case caused by the stand makes it easier to pick up when it is lying flat on its back because your fingers are able to get around the sides more easily.
2. No drop protection rating is listed on this case, so the assumption is that it has not been formally drop tested. It does look as if it should provide moderate protection in the event of a drop, however.
Overall, I just love this case. The design is innovative and the stand is remarkably useful. ZeroChroma has really given us a fantastic case in the Vario Protect for iPhone 6! It is available for $39.95 from ZeroChroma’s website at:
