And we are back with another one in our series of Nexus 6 Case reviews. This time we have a swirly design, a TPU slim-line case with a bit of an ergonomic grip on the sides. As you can see, the all important “Motorola Pride” M logo is visible thanks to a cut-out.
INSTALLATION: this is easy to install and un-install. You just pull it over the sides either way, and that’s it. This is a unibody case, so it’s all simple.
PORTS: all good here as well, the headphone jack and the micro-USB port are not covered, and I had no problem with any headphone or microUSB cable I attached (including the official charger that came in the box with the phone).
BUTTONS: this is almost great. I can’t really complain of having any problems getting to the Power or Volume Up/Down buttons, but it’s not perfect. The case covers the buttons, so you get the occasional issues of this type of a design, eg if your fingers have an awkward angle pressing on the button. So of the cases I reviewed so far, I would rate the buttons use with this case as a second to the Spigen Fit.
Those ergonomic grips before and after the buttons are really good. They allow me to get a secure hold on the phone, with a solid tactile feel. It is my favorite way of an ergonomic hold of all the cases I reviewed so far.
OVERALL: I recommend this if you can find it. I purchased this (with my own money) in late 2015 from amazon.com. But as of the time of writing, this is no longer available for purchase at Amazon.
