The sole and premier distributor of Verus cases, Global Gears, sent us a Verus Damda for iPhone 6 Plus a week ago. Here’s our unboxing video and full report. Spoiler: Prepare PhP1,290.
Verus has become one of the most sought after case brand in the Philippines. Thanks to Global Gears for bringing it here. Verus Damda is one Verus’ case variants that promises functionality without sacrificing design – and we couldn’t agree more. We’ve been using our Damda Slide for more than a week now and it has been my consistent iPhone 6 Plus’ partner.
Damda Slide looks and feels great. But it isn’t all about looks as it’s also filled with badassery when it comes to protecting the iPhone 6 Plus. It has 2 constructed layers – a polycarbonate (PC) outer layer in semi-matte texture, and an internal protective material, which is entirely made of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU). TPU, for those who wish to know, is “lovechild” between hard plastic and soft silicone.
Damda Slide entirely covers the iPhone 6 Plus’ sides and back. There’s nothing to worry if you accidentally bump and drop it. The case’s lip above the iPhone 6 Plus’ screen (that creates .6 mm protusion) protects the display. The TPU material, since it’s a mix of hard plastic and soft silicon, protects the phone inside the case.
Ports, switches and rockers can easily be seen and accessed too.
As seen from our unboxing video above, you can fit in 1-2 ATM or credit cards. In my case, since I already got a wallet that can hold all my cards and IDs, I didn’t bother putting my cards in the Damda Slide. Instead, I put thin smartphone accessories like my SIM adapter, SIM ejector tool and a thin aluminum sheet that help me mount my smartphone to my magnetic car mount.
The Damda Slide is an excellent protective case that really offers great functionality! What’s even more amazing is that it’s being sold for only PhP1,290 – that’s 50% less pricey than another brand.
