Case-Mate Tough Xtreme iPhone 6 Case: A Review

Although I was excited about getting an iphone 6, I was more excited about ordering a case for it.  After all, the case is where you get to show off your own taste and uniqueness!  The possibilities for what design and artwork you can have on your case are endless!

For those of you who are interested I ordered the Sugar Pattern Skulls from my Zazzle store.


I wanted a heavy duty case because I am a klutz and drop things all the time! It actually took me a while to decide what case to get. On my iphone 4, I had a Speck Candy Shell and thought about going the Speck route again since it did such a great job of protecting my last phone. However, I also wanted a phone case with one of my own designs and yet one that would offer a good deal of protection. After some thought and research, The Case Mate Tough Xtreme iPhone 6 case seemed like it could do the job!

The case comes in two pieces. The design is printed on the back on a hard smooth material and the front is a screen protector. The two pieces snap together to form one case.

  The printing also came out beautiful!  It’s colorful and vibrant and looks very close to what I had in mind when I made the design.

  When I ordered my case, I some how missed that it came with the screen protector part.  The screen protector has both its pros and cons.

The pros are it prevents my screen from getting scratched up.  (A big plus considering I tend to just throw my phone in my purse with a million other things.)  Another pro is most of the time, it prevents my screen from becoming gross from things like natural oils on my fingers and such.

  Now I say most of the time because, I have had from time to time things get caught under the screen protector.  I’ve also found that the screen protector also makes it hard to use the touch screen sometimes. It seems that you have to jam your finger down hard or it doesn’t always respond when you slide your finger across.  Usually not a major problem, but it does interfere with my Scramble with Friends games!

  Over all,  The Case Mate Tough Xtreme iPhone 6 is a great case and fits my needs.  On a scale from one to ten, I would rate it an eight.
