Need a slim, incredibly tough iPhone case without the bulk? The SolidSuit is that case!
Rhinoshield SolidSuit Review – That’s it. We’ve quit reviewing cases because the SolidSuit is PERFECT
Today we’re going to do our Rhinoshield SolidSuit Review for the iPhone 6(s+). The leather version of the SolidSuit is the BEST case for all versions of the iPhone 6. It’s slim, grippy and will provide an incredible amount of drop protection for your iPhone at 11 ft.
For our SolidSuit Review, we’ve given the leather versions a score of 4.8 Eh’s out of 5. It loses 0.2 of a mark because it’s not incredibly stupidly thin, just stupidly thin and it will show wear and tear a little quicker if you’re rough with your iPhone. The Honeycomb and Carbon Fibre versions score a little lower than the leather version with scores of 4.6 Eh’s out of 5 which is the same score we gave the Rhinoshield Playproof.
If you’re interested in finding out what else we’ve reviewed of Evolutive Labs, check our reviews of the Playproof, Crashguard, and their Impact Protection screen protectors (we did a comparison with Bertha, our 200g stainless steel ball between the Impact Protection and a regular tempered glass screen protector). If you’re curious to know what we think are the best products for your iPhone, check out our “Best of the Best” post!
Design – Slim, grippy (some are) but will wear quicker than other cases
The design of the Rhinoshield SolidSuit, as similar as they are to the Playproof’s are different. The process to fuse the the different exteriors is completely different (as we’ve been told).
The Carbon Fibre version has a neat texture to it; the Honeycomb is a relatively transparent case, and the SolidSuit Leather version isn’t made from real leather which might be a deal breaker for some people who like fancy things. Evolutive Labs has told us that the fake leather is way more environmentally friendly than real leather which is important to them.
We will note that the Leather and Carbon Fibre SolidSuits have a shiny ring around the camera cutout that doesn’t exist on the Playproof’s. We don’t think it adds to the functionality of the case, but it’s something different.
Every version of the SolidSuit will start showing wear and tear after a drop which isn’t great, but the damage doesn’t take away from the drop protection it provides for the devices. The Honeycomb version will hide wear and tear a bit easier and is also the only SolidSuit that will allow you to showcase the colour of your iPhone.
From a texture perspective, the Honeycomb and Carbon Fibre versions are quite slick, so your big iPhone 6+’s are going to feel a bit like a wet bar of soap. The leather SolidSuit is the complete opposite. There’s quite a bit of texture to the case which makes it perfect for one-handed usage. It has such an excellent grip, but isn’t as grippy as our favourite grippy case the Speck Candyshell Grip.
Protection – Seriously, who would drop an iPhone from 11ft?
Evolutive Labs has been a rockstar when it comes to protection. We’ve dropped the Crashguard from 10 ft, the Playproof 40 times with heights ranging from 3-11 ft and the iPhone’s are fine. During our review period, we had no reason to doubt that the SolidSuit wouldn’t protect your iPhone from any normal drop.
Functionality – Like its almost not there
Accessing your iPhone 6(s+) inside the SolidSuit is great as there is nothing that gets in the way. The cutouts are large enough for larger than average cables and the buttons are easy to locate and press.
Accessing the screen is excellent as well, and the SolidSuit might work well with edge-to-edge screen protectors. We know that our highest rated glass screen protector, the Winnergear Topaz will cooperate with the SolidSuit. If you need a stronger screen protector, check out their Impact protection. They’ve come out with a new version that we’re currently reviewing, and it feels quite close to glass screen protectors.
