Invellop Prime Series Dual Layer Case Review

Think Twice

This Invellop case for iPhone 6 has two layers: a black TPU core and a colored plastic shell. Reviewers say the fit isn't secure and the functionality is poor.

The Invellop Prime Series Dual-Layer Premium Armor Hybrid Bumper Cover (starting at $9, Amazon) is made for the iPhone 6. It has a two-piece design, with a hard outer plastic shell and an inner TPU core. The inner piece is black and the outer one comes in an array of color options: black, blue, green, gray, brown, orange, pink, purple, and silver. Beveled edges and a small raised ridge around the front of the phone promise screen protection.

However rugged the case looks, some reports about the fit and functionality are troubling. One Invellop case review posted on Amazon says the phone slides and slips around in the case and another echoes that the phone feels like it might bounce out of the case if dropped. Other dismayed Amazon customers have found that this case breaks after a short period or after only one drop, according to reviews. Several users view this as an acceptable temporary solution but not a case that would stand the test of time or protect the phone through any degree of use and abuse. There's no mention of a manufacturer's warranty for this product.

While it certainly has an attractive price tag, the Invellop case doesn't seem worth the risk. Reviews suggest that the iPhone could fall out, the ports and buttons may be compromised, and the case itself is prone to damage.
