What’s up, guys? And you’ve heard of modular smartphones before, or a phone that can change or be added on to overtime.
So when the writer should be reached out wanting to team up and sponsor a video telling me that their new iPhone cases were modular, it got my attention because we’ve done drug tests on Rinus Shield cases before. We did one where we dropped the Wampus three off of the third story of a building and the phone was able to survive that.
But the idea of having that high level of protection with the case that can basically make your iPhone modular is interesting. So this is the Rhino Shield case. And at first glance, it looks like a regular bumper. It has a race slip on both the front and the back, along with their shocks, red material that allows your phone to withstand drops of at least 11 feet.
And being a bumper, the phone’s design isn’t hidden like some of the bigger and bulky cases do. So if you want to maintain that design, you want to be able to appreciate the hard work that the team at Apple put into its then a bumper obviously 1 way they want to go. But the first place where the case is different from other bumpers is you can completely customize the look of it.
The room on the back of the phone and the buttons on the side are removable so you can swap them out with different colors to make the unique color combo you want. Of course, given that the back class on the iPhone 8 or the iPhone 10 costs a lot of money to repair.
And what’s cool is the mod case can transform from being a bumper to a full-on protective. A backplate already comes in the box that you can just pop on. And they have a bunch of different ones that you can choose from. You can do a simple setup with a clear back and a white bumper so you can kind of preserve the idea of having your bumper.
Or if you don’t care about hiding the Apple logo, you can do a white marble backplate that we paired with white side buttons. That gives you a nice and classy look. And then there’s my personal favorite, the carbon fiber backplate with yellow buttons.
This, to me, looks amazing, like I’m a big fan of this. I just had to put a Lamborghini wallpaper on there just to kind of complete the supercar look. But again, you can make hundreds of different combos to match your own style. But the modularity on this goes beyond just changing it from being a bumper or making them look different. There’s the option to upgrade your phone’s capabilities, like the camera. So Running Shield has different lenses right now that you can choose from, that you can just twist on when you have the lens doctor installed.
There’s a fisheye lens, which honestly, I’m not a big fan of because, like, I don’t really take that kind of photos, but I am a fan of the HD wide-angle lens that looks just like a lens you’d get for A.D.s LA. It even comes with a lens hood and it gives you a crisp clear 110-degree viewing angle with almost no distortion.
They have a super wide-angle lens that has a crazy 165-degree viewing angle. If you really want to get like everything into your shots and my personal favorite is this combo lens they have, which cannot only give you a 100-degree wide,
but you can twist off the top layer of the lens and have it double a macro lens, letting you get super close up to things to get those macro.
Now, I think the most interesting part about this case that the whole modular system is the rhino. Shield says this is just the beginning. They have other things in the works, like a backplate that can be used as a wallet with little slots. They’re working on supposedly a battery backplate. And there are even these two little slots here towards the bottom. That rhino can be used to insert a lanyard.
So I’m excited to see what happened. I’m excited to see the modular system grow. And I honestly do think that a modular case makes a little bit more sense because a multiple is going to put on their phones anyway. And B, you can put on the iPhone you already have.
Now, unfortunately, the Mark case isn’t available for Android phones. That will be coming later. But for now, they still have their new crash card available. Phones like the Galaxy s 8 and the pixel two, which are supposed to be even thinner and tougher than they were before, thanks to new material.
We have to test the durability of this thing because it’s the case. And I wanted to test out these lenses, like do a video test for you guys. So I figured only one thing we can really do. Right. Do a drug test filmed entirely on iPhones using these lenses. So score time. All right. So we are outside. What you’re looking through right now is the lens of an iPhone 8. Plus, we got the HD lens attached, like the big boy over here for the side camera.
We have an iPhone seven with that awesome carbon. Roback plates, but the lens we have attached here is wide-angle, so like that 165-degree angle. It does give you a little bit of distortion, but I think is the best lens to put in this situation where we want to make sure that it captures the drop, which speaking of here, is the iPhone 10.
So I’ll go out and put it in my pocket and drop it if I did an accident. It hurts. It hurts. Does it work, though? Yep, we’re good. So the next drop is a little bit higher up.
You’ve got your chest height, so you’re texting and like you accidentally sneeze. It’s still I don’t know. I’ve done thousands of drops. And it’s still, you know, hurts inside. So. Is, though, good? It’s that time. It’s that time where we do the extreme test. I mean, this is not so extreme, but we can do something a little extreme, right? We’re gonna lift it up. I’m about six feet tall. 3, 2, 1.
It looks like it’s good. So. Yes, we are still good to see that the gesture works, I’ve heard before one of their jobs hasn’t worked. All right, we’re good. I mean, there you have it. That’s the rhino shield. It’s going to protect your phone, from these everyday drops. Merely did a drop test with a crash guard from like over 22 feet. So I wasn’t too surprised. Still scared me a little.
