REVIEW: Ballistic Jewel Mirage and Urbanite Select

Did you just buy yourself a beautiful Rose Gold iPhone or a new Samsung Galaxy S7 device? Are you dreading covering it up in a bulky rugged case just to protect it?  You can now show off its unique design all the while still protecting it, with the new Jewel Mirage and Urbanite Select cases from Ballistic. These two case line-ups definitely add to the design and flare of your already beautiful phone, for the perfect protective performing case.  This is why Ballistic firmly believes in: “Perfecting Protection.”

Ballistic already hit a home run with their original Jewel case, available in a wide array of colours. This case offers 6-sided protection in a simple 1-piece design that is easy to put on and take off. Ballistic has now taken the Jewel to the next level with the Jewel Mirage series. The Jewel Mirage Series features a unique laser etched design. You can choose from Gold or Silver base colours, with either a Kasbah or Retro graphics design. The laser etching design is coated to prevent chipping and everyday wear and tear. The corners are raised, as with all Ballistic cases, to help absorb impacts. This is due to Ballistic’s patented “Ballistic Corners” technology. This case features Ballistic’s signature 6-foot drop protection, slim design and raised lips to help round out this case to ensure that it is the perfect match for any minimalist that wants protection for their device without sacrificing style. If you need a clear case, with tested drop protection (that isn’t bulky) and want to add some style to your device, then the Jewel Mirage series is the perfect choice!

The second new line-up Ballistic has launched is the Urbanite Select series. Ballistic took their popular Urbanite series to the “organic level” and added a thin layer of ash wood to these cases. It’s coated to allow flexibility while still protecting your device. You can choose from Dark or White Ash Wood colours. If wood isn’t your thing, then check out the Buffalo Leather option. Again, a thin layer was added to the back of the case, adding grip, a unique look and some style. As with the Jewel series, you can expect the usual 6-foot tested drop protection, 6-sides of protection and raised lips. These cases are still very easy to put on and take off, and will slip into and out of any pocket with ease. If you want to add some style and an “organic” look to your device, then the Ballistic Urbanite series is the one for you!

All Ballistic models come with a Lifetime Warranty that can easily be claimed by following this link: https://www.goballisticcase.com/support/warranty-claim-request/
