Now that the Nexus 6P is out a lot more cases are starting to appear on the market. This is a budget gel case from Olixar, available in Solid Black, Blue, Purple or Frost White and comes with a 2 year warranty.


The case covers the side and rear of the phone and is in a glossy, smooth plastic finish. The side buttons are covered but still easy used. All the sockets, camera, etc, are exposed, including the elusive laser autofocus.

The plastic used is quite thin and, in fact, doesn’t sit very tightly on the phone, causing it to not sit flat across the back of the phone. However, it fits the phone well otherwise, securely held in place.

The phone is provided in “eco” packaging, which is basically a resealable foil wrapper. However, inside that it’s inside a plastic bag with a cardboard insert of a phone (although not the Nexus 6P), which lets down the eco credentials a little. Still, it’s a lot better than most packaging.



It doesn’t offer much special and, in particular, the plastic is thin enough that it sits loose on the phone. On the upside, it gives some protection for not much money. It does look cheap, and you’ve got to decide whether that’s what you want for the premium phone that you’ve just purchased.

Disclosure of gift - I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
