September is always a bit special for Apple Fans, but this year around, it is even more exciting for us. We want to announce the release of our new RhinoShield CrashGuard 2.0 Bumper for iPhone 6/6s, and iPhone 6s Plus! (and later for iPhone 7 once announced!)
Since introducing CrashGuard in our 2014 KickStarter Project, RhinoShield has provided the best protection for your iPhones from any accidental bump or damage while enhancing the design of your mobiles. With Evolutive Labs’ pursue for excellence, we are constantly challenging ourselves and reinventing our material science to give you the best product on the market. So what is new with this CrashGuard 2.0?
Compatibility with all Screen Protectors: For the owners of full edge to edge screen protectors on their iPhones, the biggest pain is to find a case that is compatible to this extra layer of glass. We created a bezel that not only adds more screen protection, but also lays on top of your protector without feeling too snug or interfere with its function.
Ring/Silent Toggle Switch: The general impression of a protective case is sealing your phone in something that is bulky and sometimes the construction of the case will render your Ring/Silent switch on the side useless or prevents it from functioning properly. With the toggle opening enlarged, even your thumb can access the mute switch with ease.
Charging Port Opening: Another common struggle when it comes to purchasing a case is the fitting of charging cables. The new CrashGuard 2.0 can now fit even the larger third party accessories. The precise cut-outs on the case ensure great drop protection on the bottom but is compatible with most third-party cables (see image).
Overall Handling: RhinoShield takes pride in creating a protective case that covers as little body as possible while providing maximum drop protection. The new curve design on the CrashGuard hugs the aluminum edge of your iPhone without adding bulk. The bezel on both front and back of the bumper not only provides extra protection, it also levitates the phone from touching any surface. The matte finish enhances better grip.
The RhinoShield CrashGuard 2.0 is set to hit the shelves on September 12! If you want to get notified of the actual release, be sure to provide us with your email down below:
RhinoShield Crashguard is famous for its 11 feet drop protection. All the protection, none of the bulk. We are confident in our products and are supported by many loyal fans including sites such as HuffingtonPost, FoxNewsBusiness, YahooTech, MobileReviewsEh, and many more but have you ever wondered what would happen if we pushed our cases to the limit? Well one of our customer did, and takes it to the extreme with his own phone.
This brave young man personally submitted a request to us saying he owned a spare iPhone 5 and wanted to show his customers at work that cases don't have to be as bulky as an OtterBox just to protect their phones. Feel free to scroll to the bottom of the page to watch his video.
It was around Halloween 2015, when he had a brilliant idea of spooking customers by dropping his phone in front of them. Believe it or not, some people's greatest fear is phone falling. Alright, we will admit; we are one of them, thus is the reason why we work hard day and night to perfect Rhinoshield!
After a day of scaring unknowing bypassers, he also wanted to test the limits of our RhinoShield so he chose to drop it from the second floor of a mall. We admire the bravery, even after watching this video many times, our hands still get clammy every time.
Now, come and watch what happens when our bumpers are faced with the biggest challenge ever, as he drops the phone from two stories height! Please do not try this at home :) Viewer discretion advised.
We enjoyed the video, did you?
The Crashguard this young man used in the video is a iPhone 5 White bumper. This video was given to us with his permission so if you would like to submit your real life experience of RhinoShield to us as well, please write to us at email@example.com
We also recently launched a full back case that is open to customization, with all the same level of protection as our bumpers. Check out the new line of cases from us: The RhinoShield Playproof: http://www.evolutivelabs.com/pages/playproof
Our creative in house designers come up with brand new design concepts each week and by utilizing state-of-the-art 2.5D printing, they are able to add texture and feel to the print, bringing in new possibilities for case composition.
PS: Please do the drop test at your own risk. We will not take responsibility for broken phones.

"Bumper or case? Which one is the right one for me?"
iPhone 6/6s, iPhone 6/6s Plus
Due to the diverse variety of glass protectors on the market, we decided to start off this Q&A with the few most popular brand discussed on our FaceBook Fan Page.
Hoda 2.5D Corning Tempered Glass Protector
RhinoShield PlayProof + imos 3D E2E Glass Protector Compatibility Test,（Actual test photos）
Note: During testing, we have discovered that you must wait for the adhesive on the temper glass to dry completely before installing the case or else air bubbles might form. The drying process may vary depending on the individual phone. It is very crucial to wait for the adhesive to dry completely beforehand. As shown on the picture above, there is no formation of air bubble at all.

Q1: Is the lip of the case taller than the screen?
A: Yes, the shock-absorbing material covers along the curve of the device and the lip is high enough that it will not touch the table surface.
Q2: Is the case taller than the camera?
A: PlayProof is elevated so that the lens will not be scratched by dust or dirt on table surfaces
Q3: Is the lightning port large enough for third party cords?
A: Any certified MFI cable can be used through the wide port cutout. We have tested the moshi cable in this case.
Q4: What if I already have skin installed on my phone?
A: Judging from our testing reference, all of them will fit. But due to the difference in every skin quality and thickness, it is advised to ask your provider for more information. We have tested one of the most popular skin brand, DBrand, and we can confirm 100% compatibility between Dbrand and Rhino Shield (both Playproof iPhone case and Crashguard Bumper).

RhinoShield PlayProof has also been tested with the following screen protectors but the Pics was not shown in this blog:
Here is the list of Phone with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and Gorilla Glass 4.
As you can imagine, there are many brands so we've only listed some of the major brands with Android platform.
List of Phone with Asahi dragon trail
Although Gorilla Glass is only marginally better in term of performance, but they have much better consistency in terms of quality. Therefore they became the first choice brand for many mobile manufacturer including apple and samsung. It is worth mentioning that Dragon trail is cheaper.
Whats New about Gorilla 4? Are They unbreakable?
Take a look at the published specifications of Gorilla Glass, there are 4 most important matrices describing the glass properties contributing to its toughness, in a layman's terms, how strong/amazing it is.
When comparing the above values between Gorilla Glass 3 and the recently debut Gorilla Glass 4, the biggest difference we see is a Young’s modulus. (This basically imply the glass will be less easier to bend and more "flexible").
Additionally, the Chemical Strengthening section, reveals a much greater compression depth layer, from 40 µm to 90 µm for Gorilla Glass 3 and Gorilla Glass 4 respectively. This "super layer" significantly increases Gorilla Glass 4’s resistance to cracking and crack propagation, with a thicker compressed surface layer. The image below shows cross sections comparing damage resistance between Gorilla Glass 3 and 4. This layer essentially makes the crack blunter and shorter and basically reduce the magnitude of stress amplification.
However, if you use a screen protector, the differences become less significant. Screen protectors help spread out any impact stress, enough to prevent significant stress build up in one spot to cause a fracture. However much you toughen glass, you can't completely eliminate all these natural defects, which is why Rhino Shield will be a great addition for your screen :D
Samsung S6 drop test
Samsung S6 is the latest Phone utilise Gorilla Glass 4 front glass. As we see in the drop test below, it still crack on a face drop.
Fortunately, the Phone and Gorilla Glass can be protected by Rhino Shield and Rhino Shield CrashGuard. Check out the drop test. Big Difference can be made with the bumper case and screen protector installed.
In conclusion, it is always a good idea to get a bumper case to protect the device.
