Hi guys,

I always went naked on my iPhone 4s, but with the whole bending thing, I want to put a case on my iPhone 6 which just shipped. I'd appreciate recommendations on quality cases that will help prevent any bending while not being totally fugly.

Thanks!

I was thinking of going with the Spigen Slim armor... but still can't say anything about it except it looks nice and not bulky at all

Lots of choices with people having their favourites.

I roll with the leather Apple case on my iPhone 6 Plus.

I have the spigen slim armor for my plus. I like it alot. It feels very secure. But i must say it falls on the thick, bulky side. Im waiting on a clear .3mm thin tpu case, and a pouch.

Take a look at the tech21 case..nice, secure, but a tad pricey.

I also have the Spigen Slim Armor case and I like it so far, the only thing I dont like is the buttons. I am thinking about ordering the Spigen Neo Hybrid in a second.

Just got my first otterbox. It definitely takes away the "slimness" of the phone (I'm a phone in the front pocket type guy) but it also seems to offer a buttload of protection. Screen protector is built in, feels like I could throw this thing against a wall and it would be ok. Miss the built in kickstand cases I always bought for watching stuff but I'd rather prop this guy up and keep it protected for a bit.

I got the Spigen Neo Hybrid (satin silver) in the space grey iPhone. Looks great! Pretty thin. I also ordered the Spigen skin - waiting for that to be delivered.

I have the Spigen clear skin case that works pretty good. It's on par with the Apple leather cases in terms of grip. Not a lot but not slippery either.

Best recommendation is to go to BestBuy and try some cases out. Least then you will now the look and feel you want.

I ordered 2 cases online and have returned them both one was cheaply made the other (spigen) just didn't feel right in my hand. Really it comes down to personal preference.
