If you don’t want to spend $50 for a case every time Apple announces a new device, you still have great options: cases with comparable quality are available for much less money if you do your research. One of the best brands for that is Poetic, maker of an Apple Watch stand we loved, and today the company has released brand new, sub-$20 iPhone 6s and 6s Plus cases called Revolution and Affinity.
They are both available to order now in anticipation of the new iPhone launch later this month. Here’s the rundown…
The two new cases are updated versions of well-reviewed products available for the previous generation iPhones, so unlike many other products available initially, we already know what we’re getting into in terms of quality.
Poetic Revolution ($19.95) is made for people who want rugged cases, offering ultimate front, back and corner protection. The case also includes a built-in stand that works in both portrait and landscape orientations, flaps to cover any openings, and a built-in screen protector for water resistance.
This case gives you complete protection from impacts, scratches, dust, water and more, yet it sells for just a fraction of the price of similar-looking cases from bigger manufacturers. Don’t think less expensive means lesser quality, however; Poetic’s killer new Apple Watch charging dock shows that you don’t need to compromise design to hit a great price.
On the flip side of the Revolution case is the new Poetic Affinity line, a lightweight, super-thin TPU case available in a completely transparent design or clear polycarbonate with black accents (as pictured above). Unlike some of the other cases in the price range, the Affinity includes a raised front bezel for scratch protection of the iPhone’s display, and reinforcements in each corner for superior shock protection. All this is built in without obstructing the see-through design.
The best part of the Affinity? You get a quality, attractive case for your new iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus without breaking the bank.
