Review: X-Doria Defense Lux for iPhone 6s/6
X-Doria's Defense Lux ($60) case for iPhone 6s/6 is a more premium version of the "bumper around a case" option that we've seen more of recently. In X-Doria's edition, a rubber and polycarbonate case is bolstered by an aluminum outer frame. The hinged frame locks onto an iPhone 6 or 6s — it barely stretches around the iPhone 6s' slightly larger body. Defense Lux has a soft, slightly puffy backing. Button coverage is present for the sleep/wake button and volume controls. The case comes in four different colors; we received the "black carbon" option.
Once you’ve got Defense Lux locked in for the iPhone 6s, it proves itself to be a secure, well-made case. We also appreciate X-Doria doing something different this time around. But unless you really value the look or feel of an aluminum frame, the $60 price tag here is probably a bit much. Defense Lux earns our limited recommendation.
