No I don't have the phone yet. The point is that I'm more concerned with protecting the phone than trying to impress people with it's looks. I'm old and disabled. I drop things frequently, and sit down a lot with my phone in my front pocket. I'm not buying it for it's "stylish" look. I want the faster A8, and a screen big enough for old eyes, and the Apple iOS operating system. I'm past the stage of life where I have to look stylish. I don't walk around holding my phone high in juvenile attempts to impress others. The childish "look at me phase" is at least 50 years behind me.....so you've got a nice stylish iPhone 6 and you're thinking of covering it up with a block of metal like that?!
....what is the point?!!
That was my thinking as well. I'm now on the lookout for a thin, sturdy lightweight case. I don't think it would take much to keep the phone from bending in my front pocket. I just don't want to go overboard on this. There HAS to be some case out there that doesn't add much bulk and gives it the rigidity it needs .... and doesn't make it look like a block of metal.You dont need something that thick. A rigid case, even one like the spigen thin fit cases should be enough. It's not pliable at all like the silicon cases. The rigid cases provide added support to the back and sides. You basically are covering the aluminum with hard plastic. I'm sure you could still cause damage with one on, but its going to take a lot more abuse to do damage.
The 6. It's going to be full price for unlocked 128GB x2 paid out of pocket. So after taxes, and cases, and Apple Care, easily over $2k. So they have to last me a pretty long while. So durability over looks here.Are you getting the 6 or the 6+?
Because only the 6+ bends.
Ah, well as shown on the front page, the 6 doesn't bend but I completely get your desire for a sturdy case.The 6. It's going to be full price for unlocked 128GB x2 paid out of pocket.
