Save your face from your iPhone! Find out why in our Loopy Vibe Review!
Today we’re going to do a review of the Loopy Vibe. This is the second Loopy case that we’ve reviewed and they’ve done a great job eliminating what we thought were a bunch of weakness on their already highly rated Loopy Slim cases.
The Loopy Vibe isn’t a complicated case. It’s a TPU frame with a rubber band attached to the back but with this setup, you’re iPhone will almost never suffer a drop. The Loopy Vibe will definitely improve the one-handed usage of your iPhone 6 but more important, it will stop your face from getting punched by the iPhone while you’re lying down.
Let’s be honest know, who hasn’t done that? Raise your hand.
For our Loopy Vibe review, we gave it a score of 4.4 Eh’s out of 5. This is one of the highest rated slim iPhone cases that we’ve reviewed out of the 3 dozen cases that we’ve personally used.

Design – The Loopy Vibe is slim and well-built
In terms of design, the Vibe is one of the smaller slim iPhone cases that we’ve come across though its not as slim as the Loopy Slim. It feels well put together as its quite pliable though the glossy back is going to attract scratches over time but aren’t noticeable unless you’re really looking for them. Using this iPhone case during our Loopy Vibe review was so very awesome.
Protection – #StopTheDrop
In terms of Protection, the TPU portion of the Loopy Vibe has multiple layers, the edges of the case extend far enough for you to easily install a glass screen protector without having it sit on a flat surface. We were a little worried about the slight gap on the slim case along the bottom of the Loopy Slim but the Loopy Vibe doesn’t have that problem.
Our biggest issue for the Loopy slim, was that we felt it wouldn’t protect your iPhone when it wasn’t in your hands. The lack of coverage around the iPhone, coupled with the bulge at the bottom of the case and the low edges, meant that if your iPhone was to be knocked to the ground off a table, there’s still a chance it would get mangled. The Vibe’s design makes that all irrelevant. A drop from table height isn’t going to do much to your iPhone in the vibe.
We don’t think you’re going to be dropping it any higher given that if it’s in your hand, your finger’s in the loop and its not going anywhere. So even though this case isn’t drop rated, it will provide better drop protection than even the toughest case in our opinion.
Functionality – One-Handed usage no-matter how small your hands are
In terms of functionality, this is were the Loopy Vibe shines. Again, like the Slim version of the case, you get back both your hands. After using this case, you’ll realize how useful having two-hands is.
-if you’re trying to get your drink on while stalking your favourite review guy on Twitter, you have the opportunity to drink twice as much because you can have two drinks at once
– While eating your instant noodles with left over BBQ chicken, you easily use chopsticks while watching your favourite review guy make an idiot of himself on YouTube
– you can easily pet a cute dog while out on your coffee walk without having to put your iPhone away
– taking selfies is way easier (and safer for your iPhone!)
– walking into a pole while talking your phone will result in a safe phone (but a smashed up face)
It seems like such a simple thing but being able to do this, just makes your iPhone so much easier to use.
In terms of getting to your iPhone, ports are large enough to use 3rd party accessories, camera/flash cutouts don’t get in the way and there are no issues getting to the screen of your iPhone.
