Few weeks back, I am lucky enough to get contacted by Mobile Fun to contribute a review on the FlexiShield Skin for Nokia X6. Below shown the well-packaged FlexiShield Skin sent from UK to my home country, Malaysia. (Thanks Mobile Fun UK)

So what is this FlexiShield Skin for Nokia X6? Borrowing the details from Mobile Fun, it has these features:
Made to measure for the Nokia X6- Fits the phone perfectly to add better protection
Strong, durable material – Protects your phone from bumps and gives a non-slip coating
Cut outs for all the Nokia X6’s features – Use your phone without removing it from the case
Slim fitting design adds no extra bulk – Fits perfectly in your pocket
Made to measure for the Nokia X6
Yes, indeed. It is surprising well-fitted to the phone and require no installation skill, all thanks to the rubberized-gel like material, which is flexible enough to be installed, and removed in no time. I’d say it did offer an instant extra protection to the phone.

Strong, durable material
I wouldn’t deny it. The material used in FlexiShield is obviously quite tough and flexible, and added extra coefficient of friction to the rear part of the phone. With the FlexiShield skin on, I am always free to put my phone on the table (or any surface) without worrying my rear cover get scratched. Compared to crystal case, FlexiShield offers better bump protection (able to absorb more bump effects due to the material) and it doesn’t have the risk to get cracked as in the crystal case. Besides that, Nokia X6 is famous for their fragile back cover and casing (and slippery too); but with FlexiShield, the extra grip provides more confidence while holding the phone.

Cut outs for all the Nokia X6’s features
The cut-outs are pretty well done too. All the features such as USB port, headphone port, speakers, camera lens etc. are all being uncovered by the FlexiShield for better accessibility without removing the case. However, I personally felt that there is some room for improvement:
The SIM slot cut out rendered useless due to the SIM card installation method for Nokia X6 where you have to remove the battery prior to SIM card removal. Thus, if a SIM card exchange is needed, FlexiShield has to be removed as well.
The cut out for keylock is preferably bigger or may be thinner for that particular area. I am always a single-handed user for the phone and thus it is very important that the keylock can be accessed and moved with single hand. Unfortunately, with FlexiShield installed, I am no longer to be able (or very difficult) to unlock the phone with single hand due to the small cut out.

Slim fitting design adds no extra bulk
I couldn’t agree more for this. Due to the slim fitting design and light material, there is no noticeable extra weight on the phone, and it can be easily placed into pocket. And talk about design, did I mentioned that the crystal-like section of the rear part of the FlexiShield makes my Nokia X6 even more standout?
