Unless you’re one of those folks who has never dropped their phone—which we doubt exists—you’ll need a case. There are a million cases to pick from, but the RhinoShield SolidSuit Case is one of the best (haha). This cover is stylish, comes in a variety of colors and designs, and is robust enough to keep your smartphone safe in all but the most dire of conditions.
In addition, RhinoShield sells a 2-in-1 Wide and Macro lens that attaches to the RhinoShield SolidSuit case through a mount (sold separately). The RhinoShield environment is wonderful for travel, and we love the lens, so let’s take a look at this case.
Aesthetics & Materials
Style is unquestionably crucial when it comes to phone cases. Because you’ll be gazing at this thing for years, it’ll be wonderful not to despise it. While the original black SolidSuit case we’ve been testing isn’t very fashionable, it’s straightforward and polished enough that most people won’t find it offensive. And, if you’re familiar with our brand, you’ll see that we admire its simple, crisp vibe.
If you want to up your style ante, the case is available in a variety of colors and designs (how many depends on which material you choose for the backing). We believe you’ll be able to locate one that appeals to your personal style. If that isn’t enough, you may even purchase more buttons in a variety of colors for even more customisation and vibrancy.
And, if you really want to go all out, you may have the case custom engraved. The bottom of ours has a simple white PH etched into it (because Pack Hacker). This, along with the overall matte black case and white side buttons, lends our case a refined air that we appreciate. Furthermore, the case is rather thin, so it does not have the bulky appearance that other robust cases do.
The backing of the SolidSuit is available in eight various materials: classic, wood, walnut, carbon fiber, leather, microfiber, and brushed steel. The remainder of the case is made of RhinoShield’s “specially-formulated bespoke polymer” that is BPA/BPS-free, and the “traditional” case that we’ve been testing is entirely composed of this material.
Features & Usage
The raised lip cover that folds over the phone’s screen, offering an extra layer of protection and keeping your phone nearly suspended, is one of the case’s nicest features.
One of the most prevalent causes of screen cracking is when something hits the edge of the glass exactly right (or incorrectly). The SolidSuit case’s lip prevents this from occurring.
Of course, if you drop your phone screen-down and it immediately meets a sharp edge, you’re going to have issues. As a result, RhinoShield now provides a screen protector that can be simply applied to your screen. We haven’t tried this screen protector ourselves, so we can’t comment on how well (or poorly) it works. We prefer to live on the edge of things.
The interior of the casing has a honeycomb design for improved shock absorption. We’re not case-scientists at Pack Hacker, so we can’t explain to you why this honeycomb design works, but we can say it’s worked for us so far.
The case itself is snug and securely holds the phone. It’s a little difficult to put on and take off, but we believe that’s a good thing. A sloppy case will not help you.
Another aspect of the SolidSuit case is its place in the larger RhinoShield ecosystem. To utilize one of RhinoShield’s camera lenses, you must have a RhinoShield case (we’ve heard the lenses will fit in some other cases, but we don’t suggest it). While we haven’t tested all of RhinoShield’s lenses, we have been fans of the 4K HD Wide + Macro Lens, which captures excellent photographs and is firmly attached to the case—we’ve never had to worry about the lens slipping off. In addition, packing a RhinoShield lens or lenses will take up far less room in your backpack than packing a separate camera.
If you don’t want to use a RhinoShield lens, the SolidSuit case is still a superb case on its own.
Testing & Durability
We’ve been putting the RhinoShield SolidSuit case through its paces for the past two months. So far, our phone hasn’t been harmed by a single scrape, fracture, dent, loose wire, or other adversity. The case hasn’t survived as well, with a few scuffs along the edge of the rubber coating. But that’s the point of the case: to endure a battering so our phones don’t get damaged. While the “damage” isn’t especially attractive, it’s not a problem in terms of durability. We anticipate that the case will continue to stand for quite some time.
One vexing feature of the SolidSuit case is that it’s a little stiff at first. The cover sits tightly around the phone it’s protecting right out of the box. You can feel the gap between the phone and the case and even press it in a few millimeters or so (almost like a button). We were originally concerned that this would mean the case would fail, but our fears were unwarranted, as the case broke after around two weeks.
