    hey Guys!

    Looking forward to Friday now and planning a trip to the Apple Store soon to pick up a case for my new SG 6s Plus. What Apple case colour combo looks best? I can't decide!

    Would Saddle Brown + Black bezel clash too much?

    That's what I have and it looks great. Waiting for it to darken.

    My first ip6 was space grey and I loved the look of either the red silicone or brown leather but then I changed that phone for a silver one and those cases did look that great on it. I'm getting a space grey iP6s on Friday and even though I stopped using cases a couple of months ago I think I might have to get my cases out again but I might change the red silicone one for the new red silicone one as it feels better.

    I've been using the red silicone case with a space gray 6 for the last year and I really like the combo. Going to try the midnight blue with my 6s+ this year tho. (Or the White, but gonna try on the red in store too before I make my final decision)

    Same dilemma, I am trying to decide between Saddle Brown or Black for my Space Grey.

    Any opinions between those 2?

    My black leather case from my 6 fits perfectly fine on my 6s.

    I also disagree.

    I bought the Spigen magnetic car vent mount, and it comes with metal plates you put on your phone or case so it sticks.

    I decided to stick the metal plate on the inside of my Apple saddle brown leather case. The INSIDE - and the case still fits nicely.

    I was looking at that same car mount. How well does the magnet hold it? Does it ever fall?

    So Spigen promotes that you pair the mount with their thin case they sell (http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B010M...sim_107_2?ie=UTF8&refRID=0Q32V08SKDCR6SQJCMXD - which I bought) that has a nifty indent for the metal plate to be inserted into.

    Great case, nifty place for the plate. Big fan.
    But I like classy cases, and the new saddle brown is pure sex.
    The mount comes with a rectangular plate (the one I put inside my leather case) and an extra circular one that's a tad smaller but just as effective.

    Anyway, the mount's magnet is strong as hell. I originally tried to use it with the incase smart (https://www.incase.com/shop/iphone-cases/incase-smart-systm-for-iphone-6/blackslate/) and admit it was too thick, or the rubber on the inside was too much, and it weakened the magnetic attraction enough to dislodge the phone when I hit a medium sized bump in the road.

    I tried going with the metal plate stuck to the outside of the incase case, but come on. What am I, a savage?

    So I stuck it inside the Apple leather case, and it's strong enough that I made a trip from Maryland to Pennsylvania with no issues.
    It takes a good amount of effort to pull it off the magnet.

    tl;dr: Magnet is very strong, works in not-too-thick phones from the inside, almost too strong with direct metal to mount contact.

    Mount is also on a comically good sale for $7: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0109...igen+mount&dpPl=1&dpID=51SjtXv-FdL&ref=plSrch
