    Planning on ordering this case for the 6+, any users that already own the case have experience with removing the case from the phone? Just wanna make sure it's easy as it's a 2 layered case.

    Comes off easy... Great fit and finish overall. The one thing that bothered me was the slick back.

    Decent drop protection. I just wish the outer perimeter would extend a bit further to cover the curved edges.

    Yeah the case removal is not an issue.

    Actually I don't find the back slippery at all. It has a nice rubbery, silky smooth back but still provides grip to me. Perhaps over time, it'll smooth out.

    My only gripe is that the power button (all of the buttons are rubberized) doesn't feel as solid compared the volume buttons. (This is also why I prefer the power button top of the phone. It's easier to get torque on the button from top than from the side with a finger.)

    ----------

    I have no clue what this means..? The edge of the case does cover the phone and grips the edge. There's plenty of lip all around to prevent the screen from hitting face down.

    Did you mean it should not cover the curved edge?

    I have no trouble removing the case.

    Operating the power button can be tricky as I'll use it to lock the phone, and sometimes, because they are across from each other, I'll activate one of the volume +/- buttons accidentally.

    I don't have a screen protector yet (waiting for companies to refine the fit for the 6+) but for now dust tends to collect on the edges of the screen where the case grips the curved glass edge - not a big deal I just wipe it down every now and then.

    It is certainly a tight fit (I have a DualPro Shine)!

    I have taken the case off twice now, and the second time was easier than the first. So, there is some loosening up it will do. It is worth it!

    I really like the case.

    I mean't it should extend a bit further to cover the edge completely. With the Zagg tempered glass + Dual Pro, I can still see a bit of the unprotected glass around the edges.

    Sure, the lip is raised just enough to protect the device, but I would have preferred a bit more coverage around the edges.

    I thought it was a good thing for a case to not come off?

    Try start off on the corner when you want to take it off

    I found it is pretty easy to remove if I push off the bottom left corner then top left corner

    After using both Dualpro Shine and Dualpro for a few days each in the past week, I have decided to go with the regular version

    It just feel better, with a good rubber feeling, not too hard and not too slippery , the shine version after a few days seems to make the phone too hard and felt like a brick

    Why did you switch to the Pelican Voyager?

    Yep, that's the exact same case I had on my phone. I really like the DualPro except the rubber buttons aren't as forgiving as other cases.

    I finally received my Apple Silicone case in green and it's rocking the new color. Buttons are super clicky too.

    For better protection of the screen, in case of a drop. The Dual Pro looks better, but I felt it doesn't offer the same drop protection.

    I'm really digging the elevated lip on the Voyager for the front, and the port covers.

    Having said that, the volume rocker and pwr buttons need an extra push.

    It's super easy, I normally remove both parts to make it easier.

    Am I the only person that finds it 10000x easier to put the case on and remove it in separate pieces?

    It's easier to put on in two pieces but taking off is not difficult. Just push on the bottom corners and it'll pop off.
