    Am I the only one? I just got the 6 today and already I'm obsessed with finding more cases and seeing which one will catch my eye.. I had like 6 or 7 for my 5S so I'm thinking this won't be any different.

    I started with the Apple leather case, then bought 3 more. Only to go back to the Apple leather case in the end.

    Ha! Same here!

    Purchased a Spigen case, 3 eBay cases, Apple leather and air jacket from PowerSupport. Here I am using my apple leather case again. Lol!

    No unfortunately. Lol. I first bought the apple leather case, then bought the Sena Ultraslim Heritage sleeve cuz I don't particularly like putting this gorgeous device in a case, then I got the Thule Atmos X3 and returned it cuz it bowed out way too much on the sides, bought and returned some hideous CaseMate wallet case, picked up a very sleek looking Incipio DualPro Hardshell, and a Speck Candyshell Grip for when I need the extra grip. Such an obsession, but always happens. Almost an unexplainably but inexplicably enjoyable hobby?

    When our founder sold his iPhone 5, he includes a total of 25 casings to the buyer.

    you are not alone.

    It's actually quite fun to switch between cases as you can take the opportunity to clean the back of the phone too.

    You are not alone :rolleyes:
    Now I'm using the black Apple leather case, expensive as hell, but I have to fight the urge to buy another one every time I approach an Apple store

    Guilty to an extent. But it is not feasible that a store exists that has floor models available to try on before you buy. So it's not just about the indecisive or fickle or fetish. (Or so I try to convince myself.) ...

    I was convinced I was done after the Speck Candyshell Grip. But eventually I started browsing this sub forum and started getting interested in getting another case.

    The latest ones I'm debating is Apple's leather case, Vaja Grip or Shinola's leather case. Never had a leather case so debating if I should just splurge and get a more expensive leather case.

    Right? I'm thinking about returning my Candyshell Grip in a few days and getting the leather case. This is such a bad obsession for me :mad:

    I don't think it's an obsession. Different designs are going to appeal to different people, and it can take a while before we find that ideal case which both looks great and suits our use case.

    Which is why I don't use cases. :p

    how do you preserve the condition of the phone if you are not using any case? And also for the protruding camera ring?

    Sorry if I wasn't clear enough - I am using a 5s, not a 6.

    i see. so you are using back protector instead? I used to use a naked phone for my iPhone 5 too, for about 2 months before i sell it off to upgrade to 6 plus.

    using naked phone is the best feel. but the wear and tear is much faster. Luckily my phone was wrapped, hence it protects it from scratches.

    No protector, no cases, as naked as the day it left the packing box.

    I've gone thru many cases myself also. Started with a Spigen slim armor, then bought the the red apple silicone case, and an Incipio Dualpro shine. Tried a speck Candyshell inked and an otterbox symmetry which were both returned. Tried a PS air jacket which I ended up selling.

    Now I'm using the black apple leather case. I can see why so many people love this one. It looks and feels great.

    The bad thing is that there's really no way of trying out cases without actually buying them and using them for a few days to determine if you'll actually like it. Hence why so many trips back to the stores to return the case.

    No, you are not alone. . . . I try to get it over with soon after I buy a new phone so I don't feel quite so silly after the next phone is announced.

    Nope, you aren't the only one. I've had my 5s since the end of November, and I have 4 cases for it, and have exchanged a couple.:eek: The wife is about to disown me.:)

    Lol.. I still like the case as it provides the most grip out of the cases I've tried and it feels so sturdy. I feel really confident about not dropping the phone when I use it one handed... But if it wasn't cause of having a baby at home, I woulda just gotten something like Caudabe or some other real slim/minimal case. The 6 plus is already big enough physically and the Candyshell Grip makes it that much larger (but I do love the screen size).

    Right now I don't know how to justify the cost to the wife if I was to buy Vaja or Shinola case! The Apple one is already pushing it.. Lol...

    I've already got my next purchase planned. Think I will be buying an Otterbox Symmetry for my 5s. :D

    I was like this with the 5, ended up going naked! Now sold it on and have probably £50 worth of cases knocking around!

    Had a load of credit on my Carphone Warehouse account from when they mucked up my 6+ order. So I got the apple leather case for free the day I got the phone, annoyingly they only had it in black (would've preferred blue). Keep going backwards and forwards between that and caseless!

    I bought 5 so far but I returned one.

    Luvitt Clear View
    Tech 21 Classic Check
    Apple Silicone Case Red
    Incipio Feather Clear

    I was displeased with the quality and durability of the Apple Leather Case. It was awful.
