    Hi everybody! :cool:

    I follow this forum for several months, and i decided to go and purchase my iphone 6 a new CASE.

    The two options are - "Neo Hybrid" and "Candyshell".

    Price is almost the same so it doesn't really matter which one price-wise.
    Which one gives better protection? which one has better grip?

    If you have a 3rd option you think i should consider, go ahead :)

    Thanks!

    If it were me I'd choose the Apple Leather Case instead. Offers a little bit of drop protection for the corners if not the screen, extends past the screen just enough to keep it off a flat clean surface when placed screen-down, cures the slipperiness of the naked phone while remaining easy to slide into/out of pockets, works will with buttons and ports.

    I used a black Apple Leather Case on my 5S and it held up fine the entire year I used it. Prior to the 5S I'd used Incipio Feather cases on my 4 and 4S and those cases tended to fall apart after a few months.

    If I had to choose between the Speck or Spigen cases listed I'd go with the Speck based on the Amazon reviews generally being a little better for the Speck. Seriously though, I'd be cautious with either due to the ratings. I recommend making sure you read the reviews and understand why they're getting only 3 or 3.5 stars out of five.

    That's why you get the white one so its harder to see them

    Have the white w/black grips on mine and it look fine after 3 weeks. Maybe a slight scratch near the top edge but not noticeable.

    I would have to go with Candy Shell. I do not like the Neo Hybrid at all. Makes the phone feel way to big and it is very slippery, and hard to pick up. I have tried it a few days, dropped my phone a couple times, and now have it in a drawer never to be used again.
