    Curious - how you are rocking your 6 or 6+? Why?

    Case. I feel this is the best way to protect my phone.

    I've used Apple's leather case on my 6 but on my 6 Plus I need something grippier so I just bought this very thin silicone case that adds very little thickness to the phone but gives it a good amount of grip. Surprisingly well made for a $5 case.

    Gold iPhone 6 Plus.
    Tried Full Body Ghost Armor first, but didn't really like the feel of the screen at that point so took it off.
    So now just using a cheap Spigen screen protector and rotating through three cases, Tech21, Apple Leather and Apple Silicone.

    Well, I put nothing, but I use an Apple leather case twice a week when I go to school.

    Other than that I go nude.

    "Rocking" a Caudabe Veil XT. A case that's as thin as a skin and feels like nothing. :)

    I use my 6+ as it comes. I don't like cases how they feel or how they look.

    I tried to use a bumper on iPhone 4 when they gave them away for free but that lasted about a day and a half.

    Tech 21 case...D30 armor FTW. A couple of drops on cement and it's fine.

    I have both the apple leather case and the silicone version for my 6 plus. I started with the leather case, but it became too slick over time. I dropped it several times which one of those resulted in scratch by the headphone jack. Mind you, I've very careful with my phone... but still dropped it because it was too slick. Since then I've moved back to the silicone and I appreciate how much more grip it provides. I did the whole skin with BSE and liked the look of it, but didn't provide the grip I needed. From now on, it's silicone for me.

    On my iPhone 6 right now is the black leather case. Love the feel of it. If I go for the protection as far as bulkier case, I have the black i-blason case to which I removed the dumb screen protector, case looks better without it.

    I usually use nothing, but the 6 seems more delicate, so have gone with the Apple leather case.

    I have the 6, and from day one there has not been a case on it. I'm not a big fan of cases (no matter how thin they are).

    I have tried a few cases, but in the end, my phone goes naked. There is not a case out there that doesn't make the iPhone look butt fugly.

    Apple's leather case on my 6 Plus. I have never liked bulky cases and I have yet to drop an iPhone hard enough and at the right angle to shatter the glass (knock on wood). It's mainly just for scratch protection as I have ZAGG's Glass on the front of the phone. Same set up I had with my 5s.

    I was at the mall a few days ago though and ZAGG has a bumper for the 6 and 6 Plus called the Orbit. It looks a lot like the one for the iPhone 4/4s which I like and I'm considering picking it up.

    Apple silicon case. Way too slippy with my arthritic hands--:)

    Case. Always went skin up 'til now, but a fall that put a dent in my iphone 5 bezel convinced me to go case. That, and I don't like the protruding camera on the 6, and a case eliminates the issue.

    I use my 6+ naked almost all the time. But, I did recently buy a Rhinoshield Crash Guard bumper case after watching David Pogue's video review where he is unable to break the screen on his iPhone, even after slamming it onto the ground as hard as he could from 15 ft in the air. I use it when I go hiking, to the gym, or out anywhere more than one or two drinks are going to be had (pretty much anytime a drop is more likely than usual). I'm still amazed a mere bumper case can provide that much protection and a bumper is much more acceptable to me than a full case for those times when I need a little extra security.

    No case. Takes away from the sleekness of the phone. It is going to get scratched one day. It's inevitable. Just enjoy the damn phone

    I like the apple leather case. I use that 90% of the time.

    The other 10 either naked or a day one thin bumper case I have.
