    Is anyone else waiting for the Otterbox Symmetry for the 6 Plus? Best Buy doesn't even have cases for the 6 Plus yet, and every retailer I try to find is sold out. Anyone have any luck? Any reviews of the case? I'm torn between the Symmetry and the Speck Candyshell Grip, which is also sold out.

    I got the Tech 21 for my 6 Plus a couple of weeks ago at Best Buy.

    The black version is available to order from OtterBox's website. It will be a bit yet until best buy receives them. I ordered one last week and received it Friday. I really like the one piece design. I've used the Defender until the commuter was designed. This is my first symmetry. It is about the same size as the commuter but in one piece. I always had issues with the rubber piece in other models getting loose and it really bothered me. The front lip isn't as pronounced as their other models but still provides ample protection, I don't ever worry about the screens safety. I also like that the cutouts don't have covers. They always get sloppy and cumbersome. The black plastic material is a bit slippery on the back so it won't offer the grip that speck does. Overall I'm very happy with it. I've had two iPhones for two years each in Otter cases and they were in beautiful shape when I sold them. The speck interested me but this came out first, and it's easy to default to Otter after the success I've had with them.

    I have been an otterbox guy since my first iphone. I have had the. For my 4, 5, 5s, note 3 and 6 plus.

    I have varied from the commuter, defender and symmetry. I have never had the issues others have had. Their actions with my cases have been excellent.

    I got the Symmetry on Friday. I've always used OB Defender or Armor in the past. When the Plus came out I went with a Spigen Tough Armor (since OB wasn't available) w/ Zagg Glass screen protector. Helped me get used to a thinner (but still protective) case. Between that and the problems I've heard of people having with their 6 Defenders I decided to skip the Defender this time around.

    I don't know about this one. It looks nice and fits well. The hard plastic is a little slippery for my tastes. The curved sides does make it feel more comfortable to hold.

    I really want an all black case (which is what this is). If Spigen made a Tough Armor without the logo cutout and a black kickstand I'd switch back in an instant. As it is now I'm debating which one I want to continue using.

    That's what I am worried about! I had the Defender on my 4S and and the rubber around it kept getting loose and it really annoyed me. I'm hoping this doesn't carry over to the Symmetry.

    I was waiting for it, but after seeing it on my wife's 6 I don't really like it.

    my local BB had at least 4 different cases for the plus, including 2 different adopted cases.

    Yeah, they have cases out, just not the Otterbox Symmetry.
