STM Harbour Case for Apple iPhone 6 Review


When cases double as hand-free stands, they’re normally designed for landscape viewing. With STM’s implementation for the iPhone 6, however, the company has opted to go with an unconventional scheme with its STM Harbour case.

In terms of visual style, there’s really nothing that stands out too profoundly with the STM Harbour case – its two-toned, separating color scheme is just generic. Our particular model, the charcoal accented one, is somewhat bland to our liking. However, the company offers it in some flashier colors, such as green and dark red, that definitely pop out significantly more than our particular unit.

Comprised out of this dual density thermo polyurethane material, one that features a tight fitting on the iPhone 6 and a matte finish, it’s a sturdier feeling plastic material. Certainly, it’s not the softer, more rubbery material we tend to see employed by other cases in its price category. On one hand, we appreciate the sturdier feel of the case, but on the other, it makes the volume controls and power button stiff to the touch. In addition, the cutout around the 3.5mm headset jack isn’t as wide to accommodate those larger sized headphone cables.

Now, the bottom section of the STM Harbour Case has a hinged design – one that allows us to prop up the phone for viewing. Honestly, though, it’s not all that practical for using the phone hands-free because it’s barely exhibiting a wide enough view. Rather, it’s more of a feature that merely acts as a propping tool to show off the phone – and that’s all. For the $24.95 you’ll need to shell out to pick this one up, it’s not too bad of an investment, just as long as you find its design favorable looking. Then again, its unconventional hand-free stand offering is just not as useful as we’d like.



Pros

  • Sturdy feeling plastic material

Cons

  • Volume controls & power button become stiff
  • Headset jack cutout isn't wide enough
  • Stand feature isn't all that practical to use
