Hey, I’m Chris. I wrote this article and I’m also the founder and Editor of DailyTekk. Lets connect on Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and YouTube. Check back daily!

To me, design matters — a lot. It’s one of the reasons I bought an iPhone. And not to throw any shade on any iPhone case manufacturers, but the design of the iPhone itself trumps the design of any iPhone case. And so, since last October when I bought my latest iPhone (a 6 Plus), I’ve been searching for a case that lets the beauty of this gracefully adroit device shine through. And I had all but given up hope, I was prepared to settle for mediocrity and err on the side of prudence, until…

Let me rehash this just once more because it needs to be said: using the Hydra offers some basic protection while letting the user (me, you) come oh so close to the native (naked) iPhone experience. The only thing that is missing is a few millimeters of thinness (not noticeable) and the feel of cold metal in your hand.

So it does exist. This is the iPhone case of my dreams. If you haven’t been following the saga, I’ve tested case after case looking for the best-looking iPhone protection which, to me, means the case that gets out of the way the most. That is this case. And that’s the main reason ...
