Quick Review: Hybrid Armor for Moto G : ageing




With time going on, things are ageing and a lot more when daily used. Here is the result of day to day use of a Cheap "Heavy Duty" case:

My first article about that case was written on June 17th 2014.

At that time it was brand new :

Device protection

Mechanical properties

Despite the bad cosmetic state after those 7 months of intensive usage, the mechanical properties of both rubber and hard plastic are still like on first day: providing an excellent protection to the device.

5$, 7 months (until now, but it may still last for quite a longer time) : for about 70 cents/month, it saved my device from a deadly crash a few times! It might not be pretty, but that's not what i asked it for.
