The LG G6, see my full review is one of the best smartphones available today and is an affordable flagship at $650 on T-Mobile, with some freebies. I like the feel of the naked phone, but also like to use light weight cases to add some style to the device.
VRS Design has six available case designs for the LG G6 and I've spent several days using three models. While each has their own unique look, feel, and purpose, there is one style that I particularly enjoyed using.
I evaluated the Simpli Mod, High Pro Shield, and Crystal Bumper cases. VRS Design sent three different colors of its Crystal Bumper case.
The High Pro Shield series is available for $29.99 in five color options, including dark silver, satin silver, shine gold, rose gold, and blue mist. I tested out a dark silver one, which appears to be a light black color.
You can see the textured brushed finish back in this image.
The horizontal brushed back design looks good and is perfect at preventing fingerprints. It also offers text for gripping the device.
The fingerprint sensor on the back of the LG G6 is tough to feel and find so I personally find using a case to have a huge benefit for accurately targeting the sensor. The TRS Design High Pro Shield has a perfectly positioned opening for accurate unlocking.
Everything is accessible on the bottom, including the microphone for high quality recording.
The High Pro Shield case uses hard plastic bumpers around the frame with soft TPU to provide protection and grip of your LG G6.
Ample room is left on the top to use any 3.5mm headset you desire with the LG G6 in the case.
Set your LG G6 down on a table and trust that the display will not be resting on the table itself.
My personal favorite of these three case series I tested was the Simpli Mod series. My LG G4 had a leather back on it and I've always been a fan of leather cases. I love the look and feel of leather on the Simpli Mod.
The case is available in brown and black with the leather embedded nicely in the plastic. The stitching gives it a premium look and feel too.
I cannot say enough how a case on the LG G6 improves your ability to target the fingerprint sensor.
The Simpli Mod case is available for just $24.99, which is an excellent price for an attractive and well made case.
Rather than having cutouts like you see on many cases, the VRS Designs Simpli Mod has large openings for the buttons and ports. There is still corner protection provided and these openings let the style and design of the LG G6 show through as well.
Nearly the entire bottom is open on the Simpli Mod case.
The Crystal Bumper series is a popular option since it shows off the colors of the native LG G6. As you can see, I tested out the Ice Platinum LG G6 with this Crystal Bumper and the cool color of the LG G6 is fully present.
The Crystal Bumper case is available in five colors for $29.99 each. The colors include the same colors as the High Pro Shield; dark silver, satin silver, shine gold, rose gold, and blue mist.
The sides rise a bit above the front so you get some screen protection when placed face down. The sides and corners are also well protected.
The blue mist color complements the ice platinum LG G6 quite well.
The Crystal Bumper case uses hard plastic bumpers around the frame with soft TPU, just like the High Pro Shield series, to provide protection and grip of your LG G6.
Note how the color piece is subtle, yet offers some contrast to the color of the LG G6.
Every port and opening is fully accessible.
