I purchased one of their TPU cases for my iphone 5 and 5S and it was the best case I ever had. I tried a bunch of silicone and TPU cases before settling on this one. Just an FYI to eveyone, since they seem to have been overlooked when people are looking for cases for their 6.

I originally purchased a Tech21 case at the verizon store to hold me over until I found a better case. Unfortunately, the Tech21 case was so thick, it increased the overall width of the phone so much that I was starting to miss the size of my 5S. Luckily, the Diztronic case is noticeably less bulky therefore making the increased size of the 6 less cumbersome. Also, my old case was extremely good at drop protection and has a lay on the table design. Anyone looking for a great case, dont overlook this one.

Amazon has them for $10 now, which is an awesome deal when compared to the others being mentioned here. Ill try to post up pics when i get home later.

Did they start shipping them early? Last I saw they had a notice saying they wouldn't ship until the 30th.

Edit: Ah, it's the Plus cases that won't ship till the 30th. I don't like the protruding volume and power keys on their new cases though. I've used Diztronic in the past and they're excellent budget cases.

Generally they are excellent budget TPU cases. My latest case though, has truly let me down. Its been on my HTC One M8 since day one. It protects my phone, but its too loose and collects debris really fast. My phone's finish has small chips in it from the debris rubbing between it and the case. I think I might pass on Diztronic this time.

yea my iphone 5s case got small dust particles in it over time and made small scuffs in the chamfered edges of the phone. however, all TPU or silicone cases will do this and require cleaning periodically. its not Diztronics fault, just nature of the beast.

i find their cases very low profile for the protection they offer, especially when compared to other TPU/silicone cases of similar quality.

Oh for sure. I was just surprised at how fast this particular example collected the debris. I found out about the scuffs because I was pulling it off for its periodic cleaning. Its just gotten worse despite me pulling it off more frequently. I blame the looseness of the case in this case, no pun intended. ;)

i will admit, i was able to feel maybe a millimeter of up/down play in the case with my iphone 5S after months of use and on/off cycles. if i shake the phone, i can feel it sliding in the case, but barely. the iphone 6 case is very tight with no play. so yea maybe they do stretch a little over time.

but all in all, their cases are the best when it comes to protection and thinness for what kind of case they are when compared to others. i remember there was a whole diztronic thread last year for the 5/5S that was generally all praise. just wanted everyone to be aware their 6 cases were out. i actually ordered mine the minute i got home from buying my 6, before i even unpacked it lol.

I just wish they had a polycarbonate case available. I have a 6+ so to avoid any "bending" I'm getting a ridged case.

The elago cases have always been polycarbonate I think and are very thin but rigid. May wanna look into those.

Looks the same as 50 other cases
It may look the same as other generic cases, but the quality is that of a pricier TPU case...but its pricing is the same as the cheap-0 generic ones such as iBlason, S-Line, etc. You can tell quality TPU from lower grade TPU...the lower quality stuff is usually very thin, stretchier, and mostly glossy. From what I remember, Diztronic TPU cases are made in the same factory that produces the Incipio NGP line. They are designed in Wisconsin and then produced in China. The designs are simple, clean, and professional looking. The iPhone 5 was their first entry into the Apple accessory market and that case was rated #1 for awhile on Amazon when the 5 came out. Plus, Clay, the owner keeps a good line of communication open if you have any issues. They don't have the branding and marketing budgets of Spigen(The Samsung of mobile accessories), Incipio, Casemate, etc., but their quality is on par as is their customer service.

Is the matte material still less "grippy" than the gloss? I recall ditching the Diztronic on my Note 3 because of this.

i think its kind of in the middle when compared to glossy finishes. the matte finish doesn't attract fingerprints and I've never had an issue with it where i felt it was slippery.
