Smartphones and tablets are expensive investments and I’m a firm believer in protecting those investments. However, the general rule is the more protection you get, the bulkier the device becomes. Hence, why my wife went for a Php20 case from CDR King to protect her iPhone over a life-proof but chunky Otterbox case that could probably survive being run over a tank. Well, Rhino Shield by Evolutive Labs solves that dilemma by offering a minimalist solution that maximizes protection without the bulk.
They offer a 2-part solution, the first part being the Rhino Shield Crash Guard Bumper which wraps around your phone to protect from drops on the edges. Just how much protection are you getting? Well, the Crash Guard Bumper can protect your phone from drops from as high up as 11 feet thanks to its egg drop technology. The bumper has an internal honeycomb structure, allowing the impact to dissipate across the case. Yet despite being on the thick side of bumper cases, it still allows easy access to controls and ports.
The second part comes in the form of the Rhino Shield Impact Protection Screen Protector, which Evolutive Labs claims can absorb 5 times more impact energy than Gorilla Glass 3. Despite that, the screen protector is just .029cm thin, which is roughly the width of 3 sheets of paper! The Impact Protection Screen Protector can be applied to both the front and back of your phone, providing scratch-resistance against coins, keys, pens, and even pets that might take an interest. It’s also coated with a special Oleophobic formulation that isn’t as tacky or sticky to the touch compared to other screens and screen protectors with the same coating.
Both the Rhino Shield Crash Guard Bumper and Impact Protection Screen Protector are now available through Lazada, Power Mac Center, and Applewerkz. You can get the Crash Guard Bumper for the iPhone 5, 5S, 6, and 6 Plus, while the Impact Protection Screen Protector is available for the iPhone 5, 5S, 6, and 6 Plus, iPad Mini and Air, as well as the Samsung Galaxy S6. The Crash Guard Bumper is just Php1,680 for the iPhone 6 Plus while the Impact Protection Screen Protector is Php1,360 for the same model.
