Rokform’s Crystal v3 ($39) case for iPhone 6 is very similar to its Sport v3 case. Both cases feature similar solid builds with the same claimed 6′ drop protection, and both include a magnet and mount. An included hole in Crystal v3 also allows the cases to attach to Rokform’s own integrated mounting system. Crystal v3 only comes in two colors, however — clear and a translucent orange. And while Sport v3 features two large replaceable back panels — one with the hole for the mount system and one with a built-in magnet and no hole — Crystal v3 keeps the mounting hole intact and uses two much smaller panels which offer the same magnetic mount functionality.
There are slight differences between Crystal v3 and Sport v3, but both are the same price, and offer the same functionality — just in different ways. While Crystal v3 is a bit less bulky and doesn’t require swapping panels to take advantage of the two different mounting system options, we prefer the overall look of Sport v3, which has more color options. It’s a toss-up, though, and there’s certainly not enough to distinguish Crystal v3 from Sport v3 when it comes to a final rating; Crystal v3 also earns our general recommendation.
