Body Glove Satin and Dropsuit Review – iPhone 6s cases

Body Glove mobile has made some of the grippiest cases ever for the iPhone 6(s+)

 


Body Glove Satin and Dropsuit Review – Nothing special about these cases except for the oddities

Today we’re going to review the Dropsuit and Satin by Body Glove. Unique features of these iPhone 6 cases are the textures on the case which significantly improves the handling of the iPhone. The textures are also a double edged sword as the iPhone feels a little too different during our usage period.

For our Body Glove Satin and Dropsuit Review, we’ve given the Dropsuit a score of 4 Eh’s out of 5 and the Satin 4.1 Eh’s out of 5. Both of these cases score below the average Mobile Reviews Eh score for iPhone 6 cases, so be warned. Find out what we think are the best cases for the iPhone 6 here!

Design – These cases are pretty grippy

BodyGlove Dropsuit and Satin Review - Lots of texturesIn terms of design, the Satin is quite thin. One of the selling features on Bodyglove’s website is the fact that it slides into pockets easily. We made Aaron wear the tightest jeans he could fine and he’d have to agree.

The Satin itself isn’t rubbery but has enough to texture to keep it on the table without sliding around like crazy. This is a big difference between another case we’re testing right now, the Symmetry for the Galaxy S7. There are many edges on the case, and they feel sharp. The sharp edges improve the handling but are quite noticeable in your hand, and we found it to be a little annoying.

The Dropsuit is larger than the Satin, and the textures on the case are much more pronounce. It’s thicker than the Body Glove Satin but doesn’t have terribly sharp edges. Handling of the iPhone inside the case is quite nice as the bumps on the edges of the case improve handling. However, the Satin does handle better because of the sharp edges.

Both of these cases are “anti-microbial” which is something we thought was funny/neat. We take our devices into some disgusting places, so if you’re a clean freak, these cases might be for you.

Protection – Not much from a company that has lots of products that go into water

BodyGlove Satin Review - Sharp edges along the caseRegarding protection, neither of these cases are drop-rated though Body Glove does say they are shock absorbing (most cases are). They don’t come with a screen protector, but both have edges that will keep the iPhone’s screen off a flat surface. The Dropsuit, being the larger case, does have a larger lip than the Satin. Both cases fit the iPhone well which minimizes dust issues.

Functionality – The case fools you into thinking you’re pressing your iPhone

BodyGlove Dropsuit Review - Sleep button hasslesIn terms of accessing your iPhone inside these cases, the only gripe we had was with the Dropsuit. On the sleep/power button side of the case, there is a raised bump that is part of the case design but protrudes right above the sleep/power button. There have been several times where we will try to push this part of the case to try to put the iPhone to sleep. It’s a small annoyance, but it’s something we felt was worth mentioning.

Other than that, both of these cases offer great access to your iPhone. Cutouts are large on both cases though the ones on the Dropsuit seem almost comically large. There are no issues with screen access though edge to edge screen protectors will not play nice with the Dropsuit.

Again, for our Body Glove Satin and Dropsuit review, we gave these slim iPhone 6 cases a score of 4 Eh’s out of 5 for the Dropsuit and 4.1 Eh’s out of 5 for the Satin. Have questions? Please ask them on our Google+ page or our Facebook page or our About Us page.

    The drop suit survived a 50 ft dop in a YouTube vid, for what it’s worth. Thanks for the review, keep up the great work.
