Is Amzer Crusta the right rugged case for your iPhone 6 or 6 Plus?
Concluding three months ago in Las Vegas, Nevada, the Consumer Electronics Show, better known as CES, attracts gadget makers of all shapes and sizes showing off the latest in consumer technology. But, it’s not just the gadgets that attract the masses to this omnipotent trade show at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Case makers such as Amzer utilize the trade show to showcase their newest offerings. Case in point (no pun intended), their newest offering is the Amzer Crusta (spelled Crüsta™) iPhone 6 Plus case.
While not a household name just yet, Amzer manufactures one heck of a rugged case. Don’t allow your unfamiliarity with Amzer brand to prevent you from considering the Crüsta™ case as a viable option for protecting your treasured investment. The question you iPhone 6/6+ owners have to ask yourselves is ‘would you protect your expensive investment with this case?’ Based on our lengthy testing, we can answer your question for you with an unequivocal ‘Yes.’ We came away impressed.
The recently released Crüsta™ case offers 4 layers of military grade protection. This multi-layer military grade protection consists of the following:
- A tempered glass screen protector
- An embedded tempered glass hard shell casing
- A thermoplastic rubberized ring with textured finish
- A 360 degree swiveling functional belt clip holster
Amzer’s own Kristäl™ tempered glass offers complete edge-to-edge protection with easy installation. We came away impressed by the hardness of this glass, which ensures protection from unwanted scratches and scrapes. According to Amzer, Kristäl™ provides “maximum touch sensitivity and optically clear adhesive for HD quality.”
The case also features a 1.1 mm thick tempered glass backing along with an inner hard shell. This inner shell and outer bumper ring have cutouts to ensure no unwanted dust particles or other foreign substances enter the device’s orifices by happenstance. It incorporates precise cutouts for easy access to all your iPhone’s critical ports and buttons. All the device’s physical buttons are easily accessible and functional.
The belt clip conforms to various positions and comfortably fits on your belt or pant waist without any noticeable discomfort. The iPhone 6 Plus case even comes with a handy microfiber cloth (a necessity for cleaning any fingerprints from the fitted tempered glass.
After our thorough review, we strongly suggest this case for those who are accident prone or severely paranoid. This covers a lot of you folks. We grade this case with high marks and believe that it suits most working professionals who look for that serious mobile phone protection. How many brands boast about 6′ drop protection? Off the top of our heads, we’re only familiar with two. This level of protection comes from the “high impact resistant thermoplastic material with nano air cushion technology.” Amzer tells all “it’s okay if you let go.”
The Crüsta case is available in a wide array of color combinations, 42 to be exact. Watch the video below to see the color lineup or visit www.amzer.com/crusta. We prefer the Black on Yellow color combination as it resembles the colors of our NHL franchise Boston Bruins. The Crüsta™ case is available on the Amzer website as well as on Newegg at a cost of $45. If you’re looking to buy it for a little less, wait and check around a holiday. Amzer currently has a 20% off sale for Mother’s Day. Use Code MEMORIAL at checkout. The Crüsta™ case is available for use with the following mobile devices:
- Apple iPhone 5/5S/6/6+
