In a sea of plastic/rubber hybrid phone cases that all look the same, it can be tough to find one that protects your mobile device and looks good while doing it. If you’re in the market for a phone case that will bring a unique look to your smartphone, look no further. Carved, a company out of Indiana, is making smartphone cases that truly stand out from the pack. They’re made of real wood, and each one is completely unique.
I’ve been using two of the Satellite Series cases for my Nexus 6P for a few days now, and suffice it to say I’m a big fan. Unlike some of the other styles offered by Carved, the Satellite Series is made of the knots, burls and discarded pieces of trees, which is where they get their interesting look. Carved also mixes in a bunch of different colors to complement the different grain patterns and colors in each piece of wood. If you aren’t a fan of either of the colors shown here, there are tons of different color options to choose from.
Most of the cases from Carved are comprised of a wood back panel with a polycarbonate shell, but the company also offers solid wood cases and skins for the iPhone. The company’s selection is somewhat limited at the moment, but you can find cases for the Galaxy S7/ S7 Edge, Galaxy S6/S6 Edge, Nexus 6P and a few other popular Android devices.
The Satellite Series from Carved just scream quality. Every one is handmade from a different piece of wood in Elkhart, Indiana, and no two are the exact same. They do add a bit of heft to the device, but the textured pattern on the sides really help when it comes to grip. As you can see in these photos, there are cutouts for all the ports on the Nexus 6P, including one for the fingerprint sensor on the back.
If you’re sold on getting a Carved case for yourself, you’re probably curious about the price. Satellite Series cases for the Nexus 6P are available anywhere from $49-$59, which definitely isn’t cheap. Like I said earlier, these are really high quality cases, and are definitely worth the higher price point.
