The Amzer “dual layer” is a mid-range case, meaning it’s more than a simple plastic shell but less than OtterBox level for safeguarding. With a double cover setup, you’re getting both security for the finish of the device as well as shock absorption. But like all things in life, there are tradeoffs for that level of protection.
The hidden gem of the Amzer though is the built in kickstand, which allows you to use your device in a portrait or landscape position. As we point out in our video review below, portrait makes a lot of sense now with Nokia’s Desktop App or their Glance screen. But for you old-school people, landscape is perfect for catching something on Netflix.
