MYNUS iPhone 6s Case Review

Today, I would like to share with you this long overdue review of the MYNUS iPhone 6s case that I unboxed last month.

A short introduction for those who aren’t familiar with the product or missed the unboxing post. The MYNUS iPhone 6s case was created by &design a Japanese product design studio and is designed to be the world’s most minimal iPhone 6s case measuring 2.7 x 0.3 x 5.5 inches and weighs 0.3 ounces.

The design came from the idea of “subtraction aesthetic” which means getting rid of all unnecessary elements, leaving behind a simple and minimalistic design. It is a snap-on semi-hard protective case that is compatible with both the iPhone 6 and 6s.

PACKAGING & COLOR OPTIONS:

The MYNUS iPhone 6s case comes in a simple but well designed and premium quality semi-transparent packaging. The front shows the name and color option while the back gives a peek into how the case looks like.

There are five color options available – Light-Blue, Pink, Black, White and Gray.

INSTALLATION:

Installing the case is very simple and only takes a couple of minutes. Just open the package, take out the case and snap it on your iPhone 6s. However, if you have an iPhone 6 then you’ll have to install the included sticker (shown below) to enable a more snug fit.

TIP: When installing the case, make sure that you align the device vertically then put in the left side first (side with the mute switch and volume buttons). If you want to remove the case, do it the other way around and start on the right side first.

DESIGN & BUILD QUALITY:

The case is made of flexible but durable plastic with precision cut holes for all iPhone 6 & 6s ports.

Measuring only 0.8mm thick, the MYNUS case provides just enough thickness to cover/protect the camera lens and at the same time prevent the device from wobbling when it is placed on a flat surface.

One thing I like about its design is that it has individual slots for the camera lens and the flash instead of having just one big slot for both of them.

With accurately cut port holes, users also don’t have to worry about using different sized headphone jacks and charging is possible without having to remove the case. And because it has a slim profile, it’s compatible with almost all third-party accessories like chargers, docks and speakers.

PROS:

  • Ultra-thin profile
  • Minimalistic design
  • Lightweight
  • Individual slots for camera lens & flash
  • Snug fit
  • Protection from minor bumps and scratches

CONS:

  • A bit slippery
  • A bit difficult to remove

CONCLUSION:

The MYNUS iPhone 6 & 6s case is designed to be a simple and minimalist case which can provide ample protection from minor bumps and scratches. It isn’t designed for outdoor or rugged use so don’t buy it and expect to protect your device from drops or liquid exposure. So far, this case has been durable. After two months of extensive use, the case hasn’t cracked, displayed scratches or shown any signs of wear and tear.

If you’re looking for a simple, lightweight, minimal and ultra-thin profile case for your iPhone 6 or 6s, then I recommend that you give the MYNUS Case a try.

It is available for purchase online via Amazon.com for $30 and Amazon.co.jp for ¥3,240.
