    I need some advice. I currently have the black leather case for my iPhone 6 Plus. I really like it. I have had the Ringke slim and also enjoyed it. Any thoughts?

    I guess my question is for those that have the Ringke do they like it. Can they post pics.?Especially the 6 Plus. I am hearing its slippery and not too grippy. Just wanted to get some opinions.

    ----------

    Thanks. Have you tried Apple's leather case. Comparisons?

    I have the Ringke Slim for my 6. I love it

    My first case for the 6 was the Spigen Slim Armor, and while it was a nice case, i wasn't a fan of the cutout, the buttons were a little iffy, and it was rather slippery, so much so that it fell out of my jacket pocket when getting out of my car

    The Slim was a nice trade up, first off, it lives up to it's name, it's slim. Feels great in the hand. Yes, the back is slippery, but the TPU sides offset that by offering great grip, doesn't feel like the phone is going to slip out of my hand or pocket. The port protectors are a nice little added bonus too

    What you have is the fusion. Different case. Thanks though.

    Anyone have the clear slim. Just placed an order for the 6 Plus version. Says available the 24th. Anyone have it for the 6?

    I'm using one for my iphone 6+. It's very sleek, a bit slippery. I heard the SF version has better feel and not slippery.

    Can you post pics? And what do you mean by "SF"? I ordered the slim clear version for my 6+ on Oct 2, but it hasn't been shipped yet.

    I have the clear Slim also. I like it; it stays out of the way, if you will - hardly looks like there's even a case on the phone and lets it be seen while still protecting it from scratches. I'd recommend it.

    I just ordered two Ringke Slims one with the apple cutout and one without & also a Diztronic case. I'm still on the fence on if I want to spend the premium amount on the PS Air Jacket so going through a bunch of cases to see 1st.

    Does anyone have a comparison of the Ringke Slim variations, the logo cutout and the non one? I'm interested to see if they are the exact same case vs the cutout?

    I just received the Ringke Slim today. I purchased the white one without the logo cutout. I like the full 360 coverage and like the white color that matches the white iPhone nicely. I'm not crazy about the open grooves on the corners but I get that they are needed to be able to flex the case on and off. What's a deal breaker for me is the lack of grip to the case. I've had other polycarbonate cases that had some texture and more grip. But this one is so slippery that after using it for about 5 minutes, I took it off and went back to the Apple silicone case which I really like. No more cases...

    Just received my Slim today and wow I am impressed. My only gripe with the case is the little cutout for the strap. It's sharp and pokes into my palm when using it with my right hand. Has good grip, can't complain. It's going to be hard deciding between the ringke slim and the diztronic matte case.

    Just got my slim for my Plus today. I'm not impressed. It's not as slim as I'd hoped, and just a plain, slippery, hard case. I'll keep it as a spare.

    I agree - nothing special. I gave it away as I won't even use it as a spare as it's way too slippery.

    that's why I said the SF version is better (no slippery). Too bad it's only Black color.

    I went from the apple leather case to the ringke slim sf. It's got the mildly tacky matte finish that grips well and covers the bottom. I'm surprised it's as good as it is for the price. It's got a bit of a lip but necessary for lay on the faceability. Highly recommend.

    I have it, and it's thicker and much heavier than I expected. If I want a clear, protective case, I would get another Luvvitt Clearview. However, I wanted the thinnest clear case, that still covers all sides, without the camera protruding, and this is definitely not it.

    reading people's experience with this case it seems that it feels cheap and not very protective, slippery, and the camera protrudes out of the case. am i right? any other issues?

    how does it compare to the fusion?

    what case will you be getting instead of this?
