I wasn't expecting the Defense Shield ($49.99) from X-Doria to be as slim, attractive, and protective as it was. Usually when it comes to protective iPhone 6s cases, you can have two out of three desired characteristics. The X-Doria is attractive thanks to its single piece of aluminum, available in assorted colors like gold, silver, and red. Or X-Doria offers a metallic rainbow iridescent chromatic version, which I tried. It's quite beautiful, to be honest. The case uses a two-piece design. First, there is hard silicone bumper with a clear backing. The backing allows the Apple logo and your iPhone's color to shine through. Then the metallic bumper surrounds the original bumper. The result is a very protective case that is still quite attractive.
