iLuv Jstyle Gala Case for iPhone 6s/6s Plus Review
      #48746 - 10/27/15 08:10 PM

The iLuv Jstyle Gala case is a combination of a wallet and a phone holder. Of all the wallet style cases for the iPhones we've reviewed, the iLuv Jstyle Gala comes the closest to function as a daily wallet thanks to the large number of card slots, pockets and a zippered coin pouch. The case holds the phone in a clear plastic shell and has a zipper closure for your wallet content. It also comes with a removable hand strap and a snap closure for the entire case. The iLuv Jstyle Gala comes in Black, Pink and Tiffany Blue; and it's available for both the new iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus.



Design

For those who are looking for a case that can function as a phone case as well as a wallet, the iLuv Jstyle Gala might fill that role. The case has two main compartments: the wallet compartment with a zipper and a plastic shell phone holder. The case is made with genuine leather and has a Saffiano texture finish that's made popular by Prada leather bags with the same texture. It's durable and weather resistant, but it doesn't feel supple in the hand. The case weighs 5.4 ounces and it has some extra room for stuffing all slots and pockets full in the wallet without making the case look bulgy. The case has strong and even stitching and both zippers have smooth action and are easy to use. The hand strap is made with matching leather, and the strap hook and the zipper pulls are made with metal. All three color options come in intense solid colors.



Features

The iLuv Jstyle Gala Case has a simple hard polycarbonate shell that's clear on the sides to hold the iPhone 6s/6s Plus. The interior of the case has only a paper lining and when the case is closed, the phone is protected on all sides. The shell case uses curved sides and tension to keep the phone securely in the shell, and it's not too difficult to take the phone out. The shell case offers easy access to all bottom ports, and has cutouts for the side buttons including the power button, volume buttons and the slider, and a rear cutout for the camera cluster. The rear cutout has a black plastic ring to prevent flash from misbehaving, and you should have no problem using any audio cables, Lightning cables and more with the phone while it's in this shell. The shell case does rise higher than the phone's front glass, thus creates a barrier between the phone's screen and the back of the wallet compartment.



The wallet compartment on the iLuv Jstyle Gala Case offers 8 card slots on the iPhone 6s version and 10 on the iPhone 6s Plus version. The bottom slot on the left is designed for your ID card and the bottom slot on the right has a cutout for the smart chip on your credit card. The wallet has two slots behind the left card flap for cash or tickets. On the iPhone 6s version of the Jstyle Gala, you need to fold the bills to store in the side pockets, but on the iPhone 6s Plus version, which is significantly longer, you can store bills without folding them. There is a zippered pocket behind the right card flap that you can use to store coins and other small items. The wallet compartment has its own zipper closure so that when you open the case to access the phone, you don't expose the wallet content. There's one more convenient slot behind the wallet - another pocket for smaller bills with easy and quick access.



Conclusion

If you're looking to store and carry your phone and your wallet content in one place, do check out the iLuv Jstyle Gala Case. With 8 to 10 card slots, 3 cash pocket, a zippered coin pocket and a phone holder, the iLuv Jstyle Gala Case can take most of your essentials securely and give you easy access to everything. The case also has a metal ring on the bottom to attach your keys to as well. It offers easy access to your iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus, for most tasks; though you might need a wired or wireless headset for phone calls instead of holding the case to your ear. We like the sturdy material and build of the case, and all color options. The only thing we suggest that might make your experience with this case better is to install a screen protector so you don't have to worry about anything scratching the phone's display.
