Are there any 6+ cases that are as protective as the Otterbox Defender

    Hey everyone! I hate to start another one of these threads, but I have a 6+ and need to get a case. I've used Otterbox Defender's on my last 6 or 7 phones but they aren't available yet. I called Otterbox and they have no ETA. Do you know of any cases that have the same amount of protection, but aren't any bulkier than the Otterbox?

    I went to best buy and they had some ballistic cases but they are super bulky and don't have a screen protector. I noticed that AT&T has the Pelican Voyager but I haven't heard much about it. Any help would be much appreciated!!

    We got the griffin survivor slim case and love them. I haven't dropped my phone yet. *knock on wood*

    The survivor slim for the 4s was a different design, but kept my phone unscathed for three years.

    The regular griffin survivor cases are on all of our iPads, and they're going strong. Our five year old drops the mini at least once a day. :eek:

    Thanks for the suggestions! I looked at the Griffin all terrain and that looks huge!



    Does the slim fit in jeans pockets?

    It doesn't add too much bulk, but I couldn't say for sure because I don't wear jeans.

    It seems weird that the 6 Plus cases have two holes on the back. Do you have one of these cases? Any thoughts on that?

    I did order the clear one but it has not arrived yet. I did think it was odd that they would add the holes.

    I saw those at AT&T. Do you think they are as protective as the defender? Thanks!

    I have my plus in this case and it fits no problem in my pants pockets. YMMV though.

    I use the Griffin Survivor Slim and it fits in pockets fine.

    It's less costly but you get what you pay for. I ordered one for my iPhone 6 and holy rainbow effect under the built in screen protector. If your ripping out the screen protector it's a good case, if you plan on keeping it I'd get something else.
