    I've narrowed down my choices to these two after being thoroughly frustrated with the Otter Box Defender. I'd like some thoughts from users that have one or both of these cases. I want a case that will offer solid protection whose components won't damage the quality of the Iphone6. I have a Verizon glass screeen saver currently.

    I have used both for the 6 plus and they are 2 of my favorite 6 plus cases. The Thule feels more durable to me and is more scratch resistant. Although it's wider in the hand and doesn't have a lot of lip.

    Both are quite grippy. The speck does scratch easily however both bother me with ostentatious company branding. (My opinion). I also like the commuter as well

    I haven't tried the Candyshell for the 6 Plus, but the Atmos X3 for the 6 Plus is awesome. Great build quality, excellent grippy hand feel...love that case! I did a YouTube review of it a while back:

    I am using the grip right now. Thinking about going back to the leather and leaving he grip or atmos as my backup when I need more durability.

    I will also note that the commuter is the best of the Otterbox cases out there. Not a huge fan of multiple pieces to cases, but the fit is tight and you can use the screen protector to cover the apple logo on the back.

    I love the Candyshell Grip. I had one on my Note 4, my 6 Plus, and now I've got one on my 6. The fit is awesome on the 6. The grip is top notch. It's the only case I've gotten for the 6 that I've put on when I got it and haven't taken off since because it feels so good in the hand. There's really nothing I'd change about this case, and I'm pretty picky about this stuff.
