    Had it on my 5S and it was one of my favorites. Actually just ordered the Spigen and I-Blason for the 6 myself today. In regards to face protection, description states it has a raised lip of .8mm.

    For my previous iPhone, it saved my screen on numerous occasions!

    I'm liking the air cushion as well. But I read that someone thought the buttons were hard to press so they're returning it

    I got the clear insignia as a temp case to hold me over until the ps case is out. The insignia is not bad at all. Protects every where and it has me leaning toward just keeping this case

    I got the Spigen last week. As people have said, they're great cases. Just nice in aesthetics & protection. My complaint is this. The bezel is smooth, like the phone. I want grip of sort or texture. I usually dislike texture but when it's needed functionally, it's needed. I've tried two sand papers on it to try to scuff it but it's a nice material apparently. haha. I've also ordered 4 ZooGue cases. LOVE their cases in the past and their owner posted that he is taking a phone to china this week to accept order/final fit approval.

    That said, that I-Blason looks really cool. Anyone have experience? I hate to drop another 15$ and add to my stack of cases but tempt me!

    I have the clear as well. Every time I get something else, I keep coming back to the insignia. Thinking of getting the black as well, as you cant beat it for the price

    If you're looking for a lip to protect the front of the phone, you can cross out the Spigen Air Skin. I actually prefer no lip, as I like the feel of the rounded edges of the screen. The Air Skin has too much lip for me, but not enough for you. It also won't protect against drops at all. It's too thin. It's made for protecting from scratches, and not much else.

    Air cushion! It has a lip for the user to place the phone screen down. Buttons are not hard to press at all. There is full 360 protection, meaning the bottom and top is not open.

    I bought two and only have one phone. In the past these clear cases will turn color (brownish) so I have a backup.

    I have the black insignia case. It's actually pretty damn nice. Just a temporary case. It offers very little protection for drops or anything. I find myself liking it more and more every day, but i need something more protective.

    I'm going to suggest the Power Support because, well, that's what I've ordered. Based on previous versions of it, the fit is great, clean and minimal look without branding in your face, and a good balance of protection vs not being bulky.

    Still waiting on the arrival of my rubberised black one for the 6 plus.

    I bought the Best Buy Insignia case and returned it, due to bad construction.

    Have you checked out Incipio there cases have a dual layer protection on them.

    My vote would be for the Apple silicone case, but I'm biased and it's the only one of the six that I've personally tried. That said, it's the best phone case I've ever used -- nice soft-touch, grippy material and I believe the edges of the case come up enough over the curves of the front of the phone to make it nearly impossible for the display to hit the ground if you drop the phone on a completely flat surface.

    Although the bottom looks susceptible, the bottom corners of the case stick up enough that they'd probably hit the ground first.

    With Apple's return policy, trying it is a pretty safe option.

    Drop tests show that it does protect the phone quite well.
    Fits perfectly.
    Feels good in hand.
    Easily transitions in/out of pockets.
