Peripheral Matters: R-JUST Luxury Aluminum Military Duty Armor Metal Case Cover
In the 'WERKz, peripherals and accessories are a tech product category that I hold in high regard. Accessories enhance the ROI of any gadget that you own, and increase its overall utility. The series Peripheral Matters highlights the items that I use to enhance my ownership experience for my various gear. Up tonight is the R-JUST Luxury Aluminum Military Duty Armor Metal Case Cover.
I tend to buy a number of cases for any smartphone that I place in my arsenal. They are inexpensive enough if you buy them on eBay, and I like the variety that keeping several on hand provides. It makes the device feel fresh each time I switch up my daily driver over the 12 - 24 months of carriage that I get out of a phone before I trade it out for something else.
This particular item, which is NOT a low cost example, is perhaps one of the most intriguing and best that I have ever owned. I got one of these for my Samsung Galaxy Note 5, which I have had for just under a year. It is an impressive, seemingly bulletproof, piece of kit. I'm not certain that it will help prevent a potential screen cracking if the phone drops right on a corner onto a hard surface from a standing height, but outside of that I am very confident that it is otherwise well-protected. The thing just inspires confidence when handling your device; a particular positive as the Note 5 can be quite slippery when you are not paying attention.
You have to actually mount the thing to your phone using a series of eight screws. The package came with a tiny tweaker screwdriver, a lanyard, and a carabiner. The case also fits well on the phone with a tempered glass screen protector, which is the only kind that I will use. A lot of cases will not fit a phone well if you have glass on top of the phone's glass screen. Not the case with this one. And the ruggedized design provids ample grip with its angled corners and handgrip extrusions on both sides. I bought this one from ebay seller surewearegood, and it ran me a hefty $25.74 when all was said and done. I've only been carrying it around for three days. But so far, I feel like it is money well spent.
