    Our friends over at VRS Design was nice enough to send us some cases to review. Overall, the cases are similar in quality to Spigen or Caseology cases. They aren't as refined as Otterbox, Lifeproof or other high end cases, but those also cost a lot more. With the exception of the wallet case which came in a box, the remaining cases came in a generic gray plastic bag, which you can see in some of the review photos. Case needs are so wide because many people have different needs. I tried to point out what I thought was important, and also provide lots of pictures, so that you can see in detail what it looks like on the phone. The pictures where taken with and without flash, and I picked the ones that looked best.

    This particular review focuses on the Triple Mixx Case, but you can read my reviews on the other VRS cases here:

    Triple Mixx Case
    This is an attractive two-piece case with a clear hard plastic back with clear ridges molded to rubber sides (the buttons are molded into the rubber), and a polycarbonate bumper. The bumper is offered in Shine Gold, Satin Silver, Steel Silver, and Rose Gold. I received the Shine Gold color, however, it looked good on my black S7 Edge, due to the black rubber banding on the phone.

    This case is somewhat unique in that, in addition to the moderate lip at the top and bottom of the front, it also has a lip on the top and bottom of the back. This should help to reduce scratches from sliding it on the clear plastic back. To install, separate the two pieces, install the main back/sides piece first, then snap on the polycarbonate bumper.

    The fitment is pretty snug, however, it pushed up my Zagg Invisible Shield HD screen protector. The buttons are snug, and require a moderate amount of force to activate. The holes are are a good size and centered and the vast majority of micro-usb cables and headphone cables should fit just fine. It feels comfortable to hold one handed, however, note that since it is dual layered, that it is obviously a bit wider thicker than single layered cases. The grip is good however, if you have oily fingers like me, then you would need to clean the back frequently or it would become slippery. In my case, I had to clean the back a few hours after using it because it was pretty slippery by then. This is true of other hard, smooth backed cases as well. It doesn’t provide as much grip as my Speck Candyshell Grip case, for those who need the ultimate grip, but it should be adequate for most people.
