    I've been checking out dozens of iphone cases since I ordered my 6 and can't make up my mind. I have never stuck with a case and my 4s is still naked (save a Waterfield Smart Case from time to time) but I am concerned the trim of the 6 will get more easily damaged.

    Does anyone have a rec for a wallet case? I hate carrying a wallet and would be open to something that secures the phone in my wallet and can hold my license and a few cards. I've seen ones that the phone clamps into and am not sure if it's as gentle as my apple iPad Air case or if it can damage the phone. I would have the thing in and out constantly.

    Here are a few I found. I got an iPhone 6 Plus, so my search is a bit more narrow, and while I have a BookBook for my 5s and love it, I can't recommend any of these as I haven't tried them:

    Would love to see what others are considering...

    Edit:

    Read another post in another thread and they mentioned that TwelveSouth was working on a BookBook case for the iPhone 6/6+. I'll likely get a normal case for the time being, and wait for that one. Love my BookBook.

    I'm very interested in it. Have you used one before? If so, how easy is it to continually remove the phone? Is it as easy as removing an iPad from an Apple Smart case or does it really fight in there tightly? I don't want to damage the phone continually trying to pull it out.

    Thanks!

    A youtube review for the iPhone 5, hopefully that'll help you (BookBook)

    I might just get a normal case and re-buy the Card Ninja for mine. I've used it and it works great. I love how I can fit quite a few cards and cash in it.

    Since I'm getting the PLUS I might get two if they fit on back lol.

    I'm not sure I'd like a book book having to open it all the time.

    It doesn't really show in the video. Is it a hard case that the phone rests in that and snaps into position or is it softer like the smart case? I'd hate to take it in and out so much I'd end up damaging the phone. :)
