So I've had an iPhone 6 Plus on order from AT&T since the Pleistocene age, which has given me plenty of time to think about things like cases. I've never used a case on a phone before. I've just never liked them. Why buy a sleek device if you're going to put it in something that makes it look all plastic and clunky? I've never done any appreciable damage to any of my phones, since I'm careful and always keep my phone in my pocket with nothing else. However, I'm willing to concede that I may have been lucky up until now, and I'm concerned that the 6 Plus may be more fragile than previous devices with its large screen and thin body. If I was going to buy a case out of the ones I've seen so far, I'd probably choose one of the Apple silicone cases. But it seems to me that they would provide very little protection in the case of a drop, and in the end that's the only reason I would be getting a case in the first place. I don't care about minor wear or scratches on the body of the phone, but a smashed screen is a big deal. Am I correct in thinking that the Apple cases are really more for preventing cosmetic damage? Is there a case that would definitely provide good protection for drops while still remaining slim and unobtrusive? I really can't stand the "Otterbox style" of case. The other option I am considering is SquareTrade insurance and going naked (also, not using a case ). But with the deductibles involved, it seems like you'd have to drop your phone multiple times to come out ahead, and I don't think that's likely for me. Any ideas?
