Macally Metallic Snap-on Case for iPhone 6 Review
      #47152 - 10/15/14 07:01 PM

The Macally Metallic Snap-on Case is a simple yet very functional slip-on case that protects the back and sides of the phone. It's available for both iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus and it comes in six colors including a frosty clear one. The case is easy to use and provides a better grip. The best part about the Macally Metallic Snap-on Case is its $8.99 price tag.


The Macally Metallic Snap-on Case is a no-frill hard shell polycarbonate case with metallic sheen in different hues. The case covers the back, corners and two vertical sides of the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus and can protect the phone from scratches, nicks and bumps. The case has some flexibility and it's quite easy to install and remove. Both interior and exterior of the case have soft rubbery coating that's kind to the phone's surface and provides a better grip. The case reaches just above the display and elevates the phone's display when you put the phone face down.

The Macally Metallic Snap-on Case comes in unique colors thanks to the metallic sheen. The black one has a dark gunmetal look, the red one is more an orangey red, the purple has more pink like lilac, and the gold (see pictures here) matches the gold iPhone's color well. There's also a frosty clear one without the metallic sheen; and it doesn't have the same rubbery coating found on cases in other colors in the collection.


The Macally Metallic Snap-on Case has large cutouts for everything you need access to on the iPhone 6. It has a long cutout for the silence button and volume buttons, a large one for the power button, and both cutouts give you more than enough room to operate the buttons. The case has a large cutout that leaves plenty of space around the rear camera and flash. The top and bottom of the case are mostly open, giving you easy access to the Lightning port, mic, speaker and the audio jack. If you have speakers, docks and clocks with Lightning ports and a bit more room than the width of the phone, you should have no trouble using them while your phone stays in this case.


The Macally Metallic Snap-on Case is thin and light, weighing only 0.6 oz. The case is easy to use and the rubberized coating won't peel. We like the color selection and most of all, we like the unpretentious price for a very functional and protective shell case.
