So Karl and company asked for my honest review of the new type R clear backed case in exchange for a free case.

After using the original rugged case as my daily driver I was wanting something with similar protection but slimmer, as the S21 Ultra is a large phone & the rugged case makes it larger and heavier. I had been switching between that and Nillikin slim case which was minimal (basically like carrying the phone bare), and offered a bit of protection for the back, but not much else.

Enter the new Armadillotek type R clear case It offers almost as much protection as the original, but in a slimmer version with a clear back so those of you with different colored backs can show off teh beauty of the device, My black version doesn't really show all that well in it.

The clear back is prone to fingerprints and smearing, but that's to be expected. it doesn't interfere with wireless charging, there a couple of nice bumps on two of the corners surrounding the camera module that helps protect those pretty lenses from getting damaged in a fall.

The rim of the front is also raised at the corners to protect the screen. and of course the coroners are well cushioned so if the phone falls on to them damage will be minimized at worst, or eliminated at best.

All in all I think I found my final case. It's too new to tell if the clear back will yellow over time but I guess we'll find out. One strange thing the back of the case bears the name Caseborne rather than Armadillotek, perhaps the true manufacturer?
