    Hey Guys! Sorry to post another "case recommendation" thread but I'm wondering if anyone can direct me to any cases that will be good in preventing any bending for the iPhone 6s Plus. I ask because I am going on a trip to a theme park and I plan on having my phone in my pocket and I'm afraid the Apple Leather Case isn't strong enough to prevent any possible bending in my pants pocket.

    Any suggestions? I'm torn between Otterbox cases and some online.

    If your pants are tight and its in the right spot it will bend, a plastic case won't stop that.
    If you wear loose fitting pants your fine the way it is. I keep mine in my front pocket but just be cautious when you sit to make sure its not in a position to bend.

    You don't need a special case, the iPhone 6S Plus in prone to bending like the 6 Plus was. People have already tried bending it without success.

    There have been zero reported cases of bending (that I've seen).

    Any case will help.

    Any hard case would help more.

    the new higher grade aluminum appears to be better suited to stop the bending. I have not seen or heard of 1 reort of bending.

    I went with a durable lower profile case (bodyguardz shock in black). Offers solid drop protection and keeps a very slim profile

    I guess that's my main question. Even if the new 7000 series aluminium is strong enough, I'd still like a good hard case to put it in for when I'm in fast moving roller coasters since I still haven't found the best way to position it in my pants pockets.

    Though I typically carry my iPhone in my left rear pocket, on roller coasters I usually put it in a front pocket and try to position it more on top of my thigh than to the side. FWIW.

    Thanks for the suggestion guys! I'm coming from a 6, so the size of the 6s Plus is all new to me. Like, I have a case that's good for day to day, but I'm thinking, like for this trip, I'll need something with a little more structure. So I'm considering one of the Otterboxes, something from Anker, or I-Blasion. I'm looking for something thin and strong and so far I'm looking at the Commuter and Symmetry from Otterbox, but it's still so pricey...

    What about LifeProof Nuud? (LifeProof is owned by Otterbox)

    I'm excluding the Lifeproof Nuud or any other waterproof cases because I'm not looking for that AND with the total enclosure, it'll affect sound when recording video. I'm just looking for a case that will hold and won't possibly bend when in my pants or tight spots
