    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 Crystal Mixx Case, but you can read my reviews on the other VRS cases here:

    S7 Edge Crystal Mixx

    This is a one piece case with polycarbonate back molded to a TPU lip. I have the clear version, but there is also a black version (clear back, black sides). The home and power buttons are separate pieces and are a bit loose, particularly the power button, which popped off as I was trying to put the case on. Once the case is on the phone, the power button can also come off easily. I tried to use a post-it pad,and was able to knock the power button out. The buttons also make a rattling sound if you shake the phone. They require a moderate pressure to activate.

    There is a moderate lip on the top and bottom of the phone. This case is probably the most difficult to install of all the VRS cases that I have used, and also it really pushes up my Zagg Invisible Shield HD screen protector.

    The holes are a good size and centered and the vast majority of micro-usb cables and headphone cables should fit just fine. It feels uncomfortable to hold one handed, due to the lip between the back and the sides. 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. The back is also a fingerprint magnet. In my case, I had to clean the back a few hours after using it because it was pretty slippery by then but this is true of most hard backed smooth cases I have used.
