If you're looking for an iPhone case that provides superior protection without being bulky, NewerTech's NuGuard KX deserves a closer look.

The latest additions to this impressive line of protective cases for Apple devices and more recently Samsung Galaxy, are the NuGuard KX Ultimate Protective Case for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Released earlier this year, both versions come with the state-of-the-art X-Orbing Gel Technology, allowing the case to absorb and evenly distribute kinetic energy and more than a step above conventional military-impact case materials used in other smartphone cases. Either of the new cases come with an integrated hard shell and a soft core and is easily wraps around an iPhone in a snap and its cross hatch texture design allows you to have a secure hand grip, along with easy access to all ports and buttons.

If it sounds like I'm just going through the motions, don't count on it. This is my third review of NewerTech NuGuard KX cases and my opinion of the latest versions haven't changed one iota. That's because the impressive quality speaks for itself and anytime I view one of the KX tests “to the X-treme” videos, I'm flabbergasted with the amazing results. Just take a look at any of the tests, whether it's a drop from 48 inches, a 20 foot drop onto concrete or the amazing 200-foot drop from Other World Computing's onsite wind turbine, that enabled the Woodstock, New York technology manufacturer/distributor to become the first in the country to utilize a completely renewable and non-polluting power source.

The NuGuard KX for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus retails for $49 is available in four colors – black, blue, midnight and red and comes with a lifetime warranty. Just like my previous reviews for the iPhone 5 and iPad Air versions, the NuGuard KX for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus gets yet another rock solid five stars for functionality, easy access and protection. An optional NuGuard KX Screen Armor for $19.95 for the iPhone 6 and $24.95 for the 6 Plus, is a noteworthy addition, providing incredible scratch, shatter and impact protection that won't impede your screen.

Illinois-based NewerTech has had an alliance with Apple that stretches more than 25 years. It is under the ownership of Other World Computing, a leading retailer and manufacturer of Apple related hardware, upgrades and accessories.
