    Anyone know a case where you can actually access the power button on the side while having the phone in the holster? Power button on the side is the worst change with the iphone 6 for case designs. Thanks !

    No problem accessing it in the Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro. The retaining clip for the holster is at about the midpoint of the phone, below the power button. You can also access the up/down buttons and ring/mute switch.

    It is covered. You have to open the rubber flap over it to access the mute switch.

    Sure you could. You could cut off the ones over the headphone jack and ring/mute switch too if you wanted to.

    I also dont like how you cant slide the phone in and out in the supcase. But i dont think there s any slide holsters that can access the power button easily. Might try the supcase if the other one i just ordered doesnt work. Power button should have never left the top.

    ----------

    If i cut the volume switch one off, will the button be easily accessed by big fingers lol. Its for my dad. Trying to find the perfect case that make everything easily accessable. His old simple iphone 4s case was perfect for 2 years. But the power button being moved and the thinner style on the 6 does not work well with all the cases on amazon.

    I've got fairly big fingers (wear XL/XXL gloves) and don't have any problem accessing it.

    Why does your dad need to access the power button when the phone is in the holster?

    He puts in in his front pocket at work. He'll use the holster with the phone facing out. Hell check the time or messages or whatever and to put the phone to black, he hits the power button.

    Then the Unicorn Beetle probably isn't a great choice. The phone does fit in the holster with the face outward, but it's not intended to go in that way and it isn't a real secure fit. The beveling is different on the front/back edges of the phone and it's designed to go into the holster with the face inward.

    The KAYSCASE armorholster case I use does not cover either the power button or the volume buttons.

    Got a knockoff version of that on amazon. It can only be used in the holster face down. I need a case / clip where he can put it in the holste face up and you can easily access all the buttons. Looks like they dont make one anywhere. Case market stinks for iphone 6.
