    I was planning on getting the otterbox defender for my 6 space grey after I picked it up on Wednesday. I used it for my 4s and loved it. I dropped that phone plenty of times, snowboarded at big mountain resorts over 150 times, mountain biked dozens of times, and stuck it in my key/lighter/tobacco filled pockets and never had an issue with it. My 4s looked brand new over the two years I used it. I really wanted it for my 6, because I don't care about looks and just want to keep my phone from breaking while having the ease of mind of not caring of how to handle or place my phone. But, when I decided to buy my 6 and went to the sprint store to buy it on Wednesday, they only had the internal piece and not the external piece in black. I spent all day yesterday calling sprint stores and no one had the black one in stock. I'm a cheap ass, so I only wanted to use the $200 credit I received from sprint for turning in my 4s. After no luck, I started seeing bad reviews for the defender online. Mostly the screen not being responsive and buttons being really hard to push compared to previous iphone versions. I decided to return the internal defender piece I had and get the otterbox commuter. Then once I was there, I saw the outside of the commuter was a hard plastic. I loved the rubber on my 4s case because it would never slip from a surface or in my car. So, I decided against it.
    Then I saw the other cases. Most were either too "cheap" looking or had bright colors as if I was going to a rave. Then I saw my perfect option:

    Tech21 Classic Check in smokey color and the Zagg invisibleshield Glass screen protector.

    I looked at reviews quickly and got them both. I only had it for a day now, but I love them. The case is slim but looks like it can definitely take a fall and some bruising. The smokey color is awesome! Buttons are easy to use and it's not a hard plastic that will slip around. With the screen protector, there is still a raised edge around the phone too. The screen protector is literally perfect. Was easy to install and I had 0 bubbles without even pushing bubbles out. It feels even better then the actual iPhone screen and I can't even tell there is a protector on it from looking at the screen. The screen protector barely misses the edge of the case, but it's not noticeable at all from a short distance and to me it doesn't stand out when the case is on it. Sort of expensive, but it has a lifetime warranty where I'd only pay for shipping. So far, it looks like this was the best option for me.

    Yeah this looks nice. I have a tech21 mesh on my 5s and love it's protection and its slim figure compared to most protective cases. I am a real believer in the d30.

    I don't think the six plus cases have been released yet

    Yea, it was actually really easy. Their website has some videos, but the actors in the videos make it seem as if they are lying about how easy it is because they do it so fast and care free, as if it's an infomercial or something.

    Basically, with mine, it was a dry install.I used the wet wipe thing they included to clean the phone, then used the cloth they included to get all the smudges and finger prints off. Then when it was completely clean, peeled the one layer from the glass, and pulled it tight while I lined it up. Make sure you have the screen on when you line it up, so you know it will be covering the screen when you place it. Saw some pictures where people didn't and there's was slightly crooked. Then placed it on the phone. After that, I just did a circle motion on the very center and I guess that's when it glues and moves the air from underneath it. Pulled the top layer off and it was perfect looking. No bubbles at all without even doing anything. I still used the cloth to push down from the center to the edges just in case. So it was definitely an easy install compared to what I was thinking beforehand.

    I've been rocking the same set-up since Oct 2015 and loving it.

    Looks nice although the Tech21 cases are way too thick for my liking. How much did you pay for your Zagg screen protector? Aren't they ridiculously overpriced?
