It’s not hard to see where the Armourdillo’s name came from. Olixar’s case features a striking, textured design inspired by the armadillo’s protective shell. It’s chunky and bold, but in a good way. Our review unit is black and blue, but black and green, black and purple, and black and red options are also available.

Made from tough polycarbonate, it’s built to withstand everyday bumps and drops. The shell is thick, and covers the rear, as well as all corners and sides. It also sticks out more than the main camera, sheltering it from the world, and has cutouts for the charger, camera, headphone jack and speakers.

It’s just as bulky, heavy and easy to grip as the OtterBox, but is harder to get in and out of your pockets, as the textured back is prone to getting caught on fabric. Raised button covers keep the power and volume keys protected, but still easy to press.

One of its standout features is a simple stand at the back, which is easy to unfurl, stable and sets the phone at a good angle for watching movies. As with the OtterBox, the large bezels make it difficult to access the widest edges of screen with your thumb.
