    When it comes to phone cases, RhinoShield's bumper cases stand out due to their unique design. As part of the Android Central Community Review Team, I got the opportunity to review the RhinoShield Bumper Case for the OnePlus 5. I have been using this case for a month and here is my review.

    Unlike cases from other manufacturers, RhinoShield takes a unique approach to building its cases. What you get is just a bumper case without any back cover.

    With the combination of soft and hard shell around the top, bottom and the edges, RhinoShield promises to provide drop protection of at least 11 feet/3.3 meters. The hexagonal structure in the case interior also helps to give that maximum protection.

    The easiest way to install the case is to slide in from the top first and then the bottom. Once installed, the top and bottom feel firm.

    Here is how the front looks after installing the case.

    Here is how the back looks after installing the case.

    However, the sides feel a little flimsy. They are loose enough to pull. This does not happen with the top and the bottom.

    That said, the sides do have a good grip so your OnePlus 5 won't accidentally slip from your hands.

    And if you plan to remove the case, you should know it's not that easy for good reasons, which again shows you that your OnePlus 5 is well protected in the case. To remove the case, slide out the top first and then the bottom.

    The best thing about this case is that it has well-raised lips both on the front and the back so that it protects both your screen in the front and the camera in the back of your phone.

    The cutouts for the buttons fit well and are easy to operate. I was able to use the alert slider without any difficulties. In fact, I found using the alert slider with the case easier to use than without the case. The volume buttons, on the other hand, might take a little time to get used to as you don't get any feedback and also due to the sides being flimsy, you will find it difficult to use initially.

    I love the bottom cutouts for the ports. The cutouts are raised and have good ample space so you can easily use the ports without any difficulties.

    One other good thing about this case is that it works well with my screen protector. I am using the BIUZKO Full Coverage OnePlus 5 screen protector and have no issues using it with the bumper case. With this combination, you should get good protection for your OnePlus 5. If you use skins, like dBrand or Slickwraps, then you should be happy to know that the bumper case is compatible with those too.

    I am still getting used to using RhinoShield's bumper case full time, but so far I like it. You definitely need to build that trust with the bumper case especially when the back of the phone is exposed. I am still cautious when I place my phone down, especially in non-flat surfaces or rocks as it might scratch the back.

    The only big thing I don't like about this case is how flimsy the sides are. I am hoping that's for a reason to give you that protection and absorb shock from drops, but I am not doing a drop test to prove that.

    If you are looking for a simple light-weight protection for your OnePlus 5 along with the choice of your screen protector and back skin, then RhinoSheild CrashGuard Bumper Case is an excellent choice. If you are not comfortable with getting a screen protector or a back protection, it should still be OK but I wouldn't recommend using this case without that.

    You can purchase the bumper case directly from RhinoShield's website for $24.99.
