Draco Design has created the Draco 6 Aluminum Bumper case for the iPhone 6. Is it the Aluminum Bumper case for you? Find out in the full review after the break!
Draco Design has created one of the most beautifully designed cases we have ever seen. Made out of aircraft grade A6061, the Draco 6 was lightweight once installed on our iPhone 6 and felt fantastic in our hand.
Installation was a breeze with the provided tool and two piece design. Once we aligned our iPhone 6 with the rails of the Draco 6, it just slid right in without any resistance. Draco Design even included two additional spare screws in case you misplace the two provided on the Draco 6.
Our particular review unit was Electric Blue, but you can also get the Draco 6 in Meteor Black, Graphite Gray, Champagne Gold, Flare Red, and Astro Silver. The actual finish of the Draco 6 withstood wear and tear quite well.
One of the biggest features of cases we look for, especially ones as thin as this, is a lay on the table design and Draco Design did not disappoint. A 0.4mm lip is created on the back and front of the Draco 6 to prevent the back of your phone from rubbing against anything. Bumpers are also located on all the corners of the Draco 6 allowing for some shock absorption in case of a fall.
All the keys and rocker switches worked well with the Draco 6 installed, providing a good amount of feedback (also constructed out of aluminum). All the ports were well aligned and zero quality control issues were noted in our sample Draco 6 (super smooth finish).
One element of the Draco 6 design that some may have to consider are the fact that the ports are cut out small and some accessories may not fit properly (larger 3.5mm jacks or larger lightning cables).
Overall, the Draco 6 is one of the most beautiful cases we have had the privilege to review providing decent shock protection and possessing a durable finish. Now we just wish we had a matching Electric Blue case to go with our 6 Plus (Draco Design does offer a 6 Plus version here just not in Electric Blue sadly)
