I have owned many different iPhones over the many years, and I have hardly ever dropped them in the time that I’ve used them. But with the acquisition of the iPhone 6 plus last December, it became clear that it is large and easily dropped. Up until now I have been resistant to buying a case for it (after the Spigen case I bought had broken just weeks after I used it). But with Moment coming out with a case for the iPhone 6 plus which has a small grip to it, I decided to take the plunge, particularly when they had 20% discount on all their products for the festive season.
I do have to say that it did take over two weeks from ordering for my Moment case to be delivered from China. The VAT was paid during the ordering process, as they say it would speed up delivery. I would not call two weeks fast – so that is a negative against them; and they did not keep me informed of where the order was during that time.
It comes in a reasonably presentable box, not cheap looking but not luxurious either, bearing in mind the cost of the case $99.99 for the walnut version. It does come in black or white versions which are cheaper @ $69.99.
They have tried to make their product look classier with an included photo card, which is not really necessary and they could have either reduced the price of their products or included some free accessories.
I chose the Walnut version, as I thought it looked the nicest of the three versions they had. The walnut finish of the grip could have been better, as part of the edge was not as shiny as the rest of the grip (quality control isn’t that good).
They have included 2 metal strap loops towards the lightning charger port end of the iPhone, so people can choose to use a neck strap to hold their iPhone as they would a camera.
The shutter button on the side can be used as a half press to lock focus and exposure if desired (as the Moment app does allow to deselect these as well). You can also choose a different point to the focus point for exposure metering by tapping on the screen.
The buttons are accessible by pressing down on the case buttons. The volume toggle switch can also be accessed reasonably easily. I am happy that it does not make using the iPhone more difficult.
I have to say that the case is not light, but isn’t that heavy to make the iPhone less usable. But one does have to be aware that with the case on, the width of the iPhone 6 plus becomes about 83.5mm wide – so may not be able to fit certain car phone holder/mount.
