    Hey guys. Have a quick question to the owners who have the thin fit case.

    I currently have a midnight blue iPhone 6 leather case. After using it for about 3-4 days, I've decided to return it. It just makes the phone a bit too bulky.

    My question is. Compared to the leather and silicone apple cases, how much thinner is the spigen one? If it's not that much thinner, then there might be no point in going with the thin fit.

    I just need a thin case that will eliminate the wobble (reason why I can't go air fit) and protects the back when I put my phone in my car cup holder.

    Also. How is it taking off the thin fit? The leather is a little flexible so it doesn't freak me out when I have to pry the corners out. The spigen is full plastic so it gets me kind of paranoid it could leave lasting damage whether scratches or abrasions when you're removing the case or pushing the phone down to install the case (the pressure on the buttons when installing is a concern).

    Any input?

    This is my 6+ experience so maybe it'll give some insight

    I have a thin fit, apple leather and silicone case - the thin fit is definitely thinner than the apple cases

    I'm also noticing that the silicone is slightly thicker and feels heavier than the leather case - silicone case is going back this week (too much grip actually and not a clean pocket grabbing experience)

    I wish the thin fit didn't have the top exposed - that's my only gripe with the case. Very simple to take off - it's a typical snap on case

    I rotate the apple leather and thin fit cases currently

    Maps, really appreciate the hands on.

    Have you ever found the thin fit to be a bit hard to install or remove? My main concern is scratching when prying the plastic corners off the phone. It def does not have the softer material of removing the silicone or leather case.

    With all this bending fiasco going around, Im extra paranoid that the extra pressure needed to pop the phone out of the thin fit will somehow damage the phone.

    The open top and bottom aren't a big deal to me though.

    Regarding the thinness, is the difference in thickness very noticeable? And more importantly does it negate that little camera bulge or is the case thinner than the bulge?

    Very simple to remove the case - never have a worry about removing and installing the case. Trust me, I hate scuffs too. No worries about this case and the soft matte black case has an outstanding feel. Reminds me of the Nexus 5 backing. It's awesome IMO.

    Definitely noticed the thickness difference when compared to the silicone case, but just a little difference from the leather case.

    The protruding camera lens is tucked away nicely inside the cutout of the case on the thin fit - no wobble when placed on a flat service

    Get one bro - i think you'll enjoy it

    I have the thin fit and a couple other cases for the Six. The thin fit is now my daily driver. Don't worry about removing the case. The best approach is to take the edges of the corner out first. As long as you're not an animal with it you should be fine removing it. I have taken mine off several times to try other cases.

    You can check out my detailed review on my blog.

    Nice review JNG!

    From the photos though, it looks a bit thicker than expected. I have both the air fit and the thin fit coming tomorrow. I'll decide then.

    Also, I see everyone raving about the matte feel. I unfortunately got the clear one haha

    Don't judge by photos, the Thin Fit is really thin and feels great, almost like it belongs on the phone. The only two cases that are thinner are the Spigen Air Skin (.4mm) and the Caudabe (.35mm). I have these as well and are nice minimal cases but the thin fit wins the daily driver because of the matte feel and the *very* slight lip which allows me to put the phone face down when I want.

    Either way, the above cases that I mentioned in addition to the Thin Fit are great choices if minimal protection and as close to naked feel is what you are after.

    Do you like the air skin over the caudabe? Hows the build quality between the two.

    Both are excellent. If you're going to go that thin might as well go with the thinnest. I also prefer the more translucent back of the Veil.

    I chose the Air Skin over the Thin Fit because mine had a slight wobble on the left side (clear). Not sure if it was from an initial run before the iPhone 6 was released or what. I think the newer ones must have a better fit?

    These companies makes hundreds of thousands of cases from a mold. Production line issues are bound to happen with any case. But I can assure you the Spigen Thin Fit and Noot that I have are rock solid in terms of fit.

    My air fit and thin fit came today. Def returning the air fit. To be charged 12 for something that thin seems outrageous. That and the wobble kind of bothered me. The thin fit is slightly bulkier than I expected but I can live with it.

    Crazy to think after having all the previous iphone iterations, this will be the first time I go with a case. Times are changing.

    I've got a Spigen Thin Fit case for my 6. Don't normally use a case (never did find one in 4.5 years with my 3GS or 4S). Ordered this one for $12 and love it. Doesn't interfere with the rounded edge of the glass too much, while improving scratch protection marginally.

    Agreed. Its a nice case for whats being charged (Paid 10 on amazon. The air fit was 12 for me). Returning the air fit tomorrow.

    One con of thin fit is that the clear colorway gets extremely slippery and gross from the oils. I just wish that matte finish came in clear. I don't like the solid colored variants.
