    The 6s plus is already huge.... I think I will pick up a Lifeproof to have when I go swimming or to the beach.

    Both will make the iPhone 6/6s Plus bigger and heavier, but the additional weight and size from the OtterBox Defender is more noticeable than the LifeProof.

    Problems I've read about for both:

    -Charging door latches break causing the phone to lose the waterproof feature as the door no longer closes. (Remedy: keep getting replacements when this happens.)
    -Sound issues - people hear you clearly and the sound has a tin can effect.

    -Built in screen protector doesn't sit flush on the screen and has a noticeable gap causing the user to press harder in the screen. Also reports of the screen protector leaving marks around the home button. (Remedy: most have removed the built in screen protector and use their own glass protector.)

    My defender just came yesterday. See how it fits on the phone the 25th! I will most likely cut out the little piece that covers the home button.
