After looking at different cases onall the carrier stores, best buy, walmart etc. I end up choosing the Body Glove Satin case (tmobile store) Fits perfect, has great grip and is between a silicone and hard plastic. The back looks like brush black metal and the ports are very accesible. $25 , maybe cheaper on ebay. I have never droped my old 5S or my Note 3 (POS phone) and I don't pretend to drop this iphone 6 plus either but, the case is hard enought to protect it if it falls.
