When Ballistic Case kindly agreed to send me out some of their iPhone 6 Plus cases to review, I had very high expectations as to the quality of the cases I was going to receive. I’d had Ballistic cases in the past for previous iPhones and had been quite impressed. Fortunately, those expectations were easily met, and in fact, exceeded. Both cases that Ballistic sent me were absolute winners. The Jewel case, that I am reviewing here, is a clear case that offers the user a (mostly) slim profile, a grippy material, and 6 foot drop protection. Nice package indeed! Now, I say that this case has a ‘mostly slim profile’ because it is pretty slim all over, except for the corners, which flare out considerably. This is a signature design aspect of Ballistic’s cases and I suspect it works very well to protect your iPhone. Corners are a major weak point on most phones and by protecting the corners, Ballistic protects the screen as well. At any rate, the big corners of this case aren’t really that noticeable because you are generally holding the case in the middle, rather than on the corners, so you don’t notice them as much as you otherwise would.
1. Great grip! This case is highly non-slip.
2. Nice protective lip.
3. Fits the iPhone 6 Plus very well, but is quite easy to get on and off.
4. Clear case really shows off the beauty of your iPhone 6 Plus.
5. 6 foot drop protection!!
1. Corners are kind of big 🙂
2. Grippy material does attract lint to some degree, but it isn’t that bad.
Conclusion: I love this case. It shows off the beauty of my iPhone 6 Plus and and makes it feel secure, and I just like the feel of it in my hand. The Ballistic Jewel is a winner!
The Ballistic Jewel for iPhone 6 Plus retails for $19.99 and can be purchased directly from Ballistic, as well as on Amazon and at other retailers:
