    The diztronic for iPhone 6 is lovely, I know I had one.

    The diztronic for iPhone 6+ is not lovely, it's square and awkward instead of curved and contoured to the bottom.

    It's not a bad case, but its not the diztronic I came to know and love over the course of having it on iPhone 5 and Nexus 5 and iPhone 6.

    Even the bottom seems sloppy, with the obvious injection mold and chunky looking cut outs. And though the Diz are a matte texture, I have a feeling this texture will hold up better against scratches.

    I will let the pictures speak for themselves (even though I just spoke a lot):

    I received my NGP for my 6 Plus last Friday and love it. This is the case I'm sticking with.

    I went from a Spigen Neo Hybrid, which is a great case but made the Plus too big, to a Ultra Hybrid. The cut out for the lightning port on the Ultra Hybrid is sloppy. I also ordered a capsule which I didn't even bother trying on. It just feels flimsy and cheap.

    Dude! How do you get a killer lockscreen like that!

    If the NGP didn't have that ugly section next to the camera cutout I'd own one.

    Jailbreak but it's a combo of subtle lock for small time, lock glyph for fingerprint, and zeppelin for no carrier. And same status for a status bar same size as home screen.

    NGP is a great case. I really like it. If I didn't use the OB defender as my daily, it would be the NGP

    I too just switched from the Diztronic matte to the NGP for my 6 Plus. I went with the clear frosted NGP and love the way I can see through the case. Please note it's translucent, not transparent and made of that crystal clear material that looks filthy all the time.

    The thing I disliked most about the Diztronic was the beveled edge on the front and back where there is a space where dust constantly accumulates. The NGP has no such problem.

    I had my reservations about the area near the camera cutout, in person it hasn't bothered me one bit.

    The only minor nit is the power button is a hair less responsive than the one on the Diztronic. But it is not to the point where it is an issue, the Diztronic was just a bit better.

    Overall I love the NGP.

    Hard to say if it will yellow or not, but it seems like a very high quality material.

    Had to take the photos with my iPad Air so quality is not the greatest but should suffice.

    I agree. After your detailed assessment my entire perspective has changed.

    Back to reality, I love this case.

    The clear frost NGP looks the best but sadly it gets yellow.. Wife had it for 2 months now, and you can see it turn yellow in different angles..

    That rules that out then. Maybe I'll pick up a black ngp if I want another color. Seriously digging the blue for now though

    Got the translucent frost color for iPhone 6, but I think it's too thick. It looks pretty good, but I'm not used to the bulk since I usually use snap cases on my iPhones. Seems like it's a few mm thicker than the protrusion of the rear camera which I don't think is really necessary. Not a bad case if you're looking for really good protection though.

    Really? One of the things I like about 6+ NGP is its thin ness.

    I'm off the case market now

    I agree. It's the thinnest case I have. I actually wish it had a better lip. Oh well, different strokes for different folks

    I have to agree as well, I'm very happy with the thinness.

    How does the NGP compare size-wise with the Diztronic?

    If you want something similar but slightly thinner, check out Switcheasy Numbers. I had the NGP before I switched to the Numbers.

    My case also turned yellow after about six weeks.

    I had the Frost and I returned it after it got dirty very quickly. I have the black as well. I wish they made the NGP in the old translucent gray. It was the perfect case. The black is almost there in really bright light but still hides too much.

    I went through at least 10 cases for my iPhone 6 before getting the Incipio NGP and it is by far my favorite. I would've stuck with my Tech 21 but the back wasn't scratch resistant.
