We've been reviewing wildly unique and quirky iPhone cases from SwitchEasy for the longest time. It was one of the earliest case brands to come up with some of the boldest and most inexpensive protective cases for the iPhone. One of SwitchEasy's latest and perhaps the most fascinating accessory for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is called the AirMask. Dubbed as the "world's first instant makeover kit", the AirMask is a skin-like casing or shell made out of a very thin polymer and polycarbonate hybrid that is literally skin-tight and designed to fit around the iPhone without disturbing its original curved and slim form factor. At only 0.3mm, SwitchEasy's AirMask offers 360-degree scratch protection, features seamless built-in screen protection and designed to give your iPhone a completely new colorful look from every angle. But is it for you? Find out by checking our our full review of the AirMask after the cut!Read More
For this edition of the Gadgetmac Guide we've rounded up a very particular set of minimalist cases for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Cases that that are so thin and slim you won't even noticed you're using protection. We're talking about the elusive ultra-thin class of impossibly slim cases that aren't made to offer drop protection, but are designed to make it feel like you're holding onto the bare naked body of your seamlessly rounded iPhone 6 or 6 Plus. At only under 0.4mm, all these cases have got left to offer is light protection against scratches, nicks and small dents that can be caused from normal everyday use. The goal in using such a thin case is to add a nearly indiscernible layer of lightweight protection that will not interfere with the original design of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Because no one really wants to make a big iPhone, especially the iPhone 6 Plus, even bigger. While there are plenty of slim cases on offer, we are only going to be featuring the slimmest there are at 0.4mm, all the way down to just 0.35mm thick. How slim is that exactly? To put things into prospective – as thin as an eggshell. These cases are so slim that even the back-facing camera on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus will still protrude above the flat surface of the case.
The tradeoff of course is that these ultra-thin and slim cases aren't going to provide any screen protection like an ordinary case with a lip surrounding the glass, which fortunately means that you'll be able to slide your finger off that perfectly rounded glass edge. And what iPhone 6 and 6 Plus user is going to argue with that. It's also worth mentioning that every single one of these cases is compatible with tempered glass screen protectors in case you'd like to protect the front side of your device and not only the back, sides and edges. So if you're someone that's looking for a case to keep all of that super slim all-aluminum unibody construction in mint, out-of-the-box condition without adding a single ounce of bulk, this guide is for you. These are some of the best thinnest, skin-tight cases for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and the full list is right down below!Read More
