After being an Android phone user for a few years, I decided to come back to the iPhone. I went with the iPhone 6 Plus for its awesome camera, big size, and continuity between OS X 10.10 and iOS 8, along with many other reasons. I needed a new spiffy case to protect it, but something that didn’t add too much bulk. Along came Casetify for a review, so I decided to give it a try. Let’s take a look!

Casetify has a website and mobile app where you can select various style of cases for your iPhone, Samsung Galaxy S3/S4/S5, iPad, and various other items. I spent what seemed like hours on their website trying to trying to find a customization option right for me. They have some fun pre-designed collections such as holiday collection, lace, clear, sparky, and wood backed cases. If you decide to customize your case, you start off choosing from a classic snap, Metaluxe (a case with a metal corner and customized back), Metaluxe backplate, or maple-wood case. You can then upload your own photos, or connect your Instagram or Facebook photos. You can also choose from a “stamp” library of designs from Casetify itself. It’s overwhelming the amount of customization you can do!
In the end, I decided to pick a fun clear, black and white, star splatted design.
My case came in a simple cardboard designed box, with clear cover on the case and small booklet.
On the back their slogan can be seen along with a blip encouraging you to share your new case with a hashtag #Casetify.
The classic snap case I chose is 2.5mm slim, and fits my iPhone 6 Plus perfectly. The front of the case has a tiny bit of lip to protect the curved edges on the sides and corners of the phone. If the phone is placed face down on a table, it gives you a tiny bit of gap.
The top of the case leaves a gap with no protection. I wish the case just covered this little bit of the phone.
The sides of the case leave enough room for the buttons to be pressed.
The bottom of the case also leaves a gap with no protection, but it’s due to the speaker, headphone, and lighting jacks being all together.
All in all I really love this case due to its fun design and slim profile. Since it’s made of a hard plastic I feel it offers protection in case of a fall, so long that it doesn’t land face down! This particular case is more for style and design rather than protection. I do think the prices are a bit steep, but since you can customize it to your heart’s content, it might be just what you are looking for. If you are looking for something fun and stylish for your mobile device, give it a try!
