Amzer Crusta for Apple iPhone 6 Plus UnBoxing & Installation

As you will know from my previous posts on cases and protection fro my phones I am generally speaking a fan and user of tough cases, the OtterBox Defender, OtterBox Preserver and Griffin Survivor would normally factor in my top 5 cases.  Although one lazy Sunday morning a Facebook advertisement for an ‘Amzer Crusta’ case appeared on my news feed.  It was being marketed as a tough case with a build in tempered glass cover (front and rear) thus maintaining the feeling and a lot of the looks of a ‘naked’ iPhone.  The obvious exception being the large bumper round it!

I was intrigued enough to look closer and although Amzer as a brand didn’t appear to be overly familiar in the UK it did seem to have a good customer base in the USA, which seemed to be fairly positive.  So I ordered one.

That video was made mid November 2014 and it is now 30/12/2014 and I can confirm that the case still looks as new, there isn’t a single scuff or mark on it. The screen is still crystal clear as is the rear backing. One noticeable change is ‘film-marking.’ I have just made that word up but basically the invisible shield and the clear tempered glass rear of the case don’t work perfectly together, it leaves a film like appearance underneath the tempered glass. This is common when two shields come in contact with each other and to be honest the effect is negligible to me.

The camera is completely unaffected by the case and all in all this is a quality bit of kit I will have no problems buying again, or more likely buying a new different coloured bumper. I mention in the video a little dust got under the scree, well it is still there but again it now effectively unnoticeable.

The TouchID Sensor works perfectly.

This is a quality case and well worth looking at if you are looking a tough case. The one element it will not protect from is water so if that is an issue for you you would have to try elsewhere.
