Featured Review: OnePlus One Flexishield Gel Case

June 17, 2015 - Written By John Anon

The OnePlus One is one of the most popular smartphones of the last year. Of course, the sales of the device do not contend with those from Samsung, HTC and the likes. However, as this was the company’s first major release and from what was essentially an unknown startup, the success of the One cannot be argued with. In fact, since the release of the device, the One has built up quite the community behind it with customers loving the accessories available, from the more customized Bamboo backs to the more standard flip cases.

Well, if you are after a case for your OnePlus One but do not want to spend too much, then here is a quick look at the Flexishield OnePlus One case available from Mobile Fun. This case is purpose built for the OnePlus One and as such comes with all the pre-fixed holes, slits and openings you will need to make use of your One. As this is a Flexishield type case, it is gel based and therefore, adds a soft and rubber-like feel to the device. Interesting, when the case is in use, it somewhat disguises the look of the OnePlus One. As such, if you are looking for a case to make your device a little more discrete then this would be worth trying.

Of course, one of the main recent, cases are so essential these days is due to the extra level of protection offered. In this respect, the Flexishield OnePlus One case does offer a decent level of protection. Compared to the more standard cases and due to the gel nature, the case is easily able to withstand drops, bangs and knocks extremely well. The case runs the entire edge of the device, meaning that all your edges are protected. However, it is worth noting that the case does not offer protection for the screen. So you may want to use a screen protector with this one to best protect your device,

All that said, this is a really lightweight and certainly a daily usable case. The Flexishield case offers a good level of protection and results in a very lightweight and bulk-free feel to the device. Best of all, this is a rather inexpensive case. If you are in the UK, then you can pick up the Flexishield OnePlus One case from MobileFun for £5.99. If you are US based, then you can pick it up for $7.99.
