The picture below shows my old iPhone case (in pink) next to the KX case (red and black). Can you see a difference? Uh, YEAH.
The KX case offers extreme protection for your phone. It's sort of padded on the inside, but it's hard and sort of textured on the outside. It uses X-Orbing gel technology to absorb and evenly distribute kinetic energy. I can attest to this because I did accidentally drop my phone on our hardwood floors, and everything was a-okay!
The case may look bigger than my old one, but it's actually not very bulky and it's super lightweight. I also like that it doesn't just cover the sides, but it also comes up over the top edges of the phone for a snug and secure fit.
The case also covers the power and volume buttons, but it doesn't prohibit you from using them. I actually think it's easier to press the buttons through this case!
It's also easy to remove your phone from the case, if you need to, which is something I can NOT say about my old phone case. That thing was such a pain. I'm so glad to have my phone protected in the KX case. Every time I look at my phone now, I think it looks brand new!
This is available for the iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 5/5S. It's also available in a variety of colors, so you still get some customization! You can find out more information on the phone case at the NewerTech website.
