    I am looking for a flip case for my 6 Plus - it must be flip not folio as it must fit in a Brodit/Proclip car mount. So far I am looking at a Vaja Flip (http://www.vajacases.com/iphone-6-leather-cases/top-flip-stock/crown-blue-true-blue for 6 as 6 Plus not listed yet), or Piel Frama iMagnum (http://www.pielframa.com/iphone-6-plus-cases-color-ostrich-1541-39.htm). They look to be about the same price after shipping and duty has been paid (to the UK) and I was wondering if anyone has had experience with these cases and what their opinion of them is. Any other good quality case suggestions are also welcome.

    I'm a leather flip case person also. I ordered this one:

    http://www.noreve.com/en/apple/2967-apple-iphone-6-plus-leather-case.html

    The cases are custom made in lots of colors and finishes. First time ordering from them. I was surprised to get an email a few days after placing my order that said it would be delivered in 2 weeks. I expected much longer.

    There aren't many reviews for Noreve, the ones I did read for other phones were good.

    Cases.com is taking preorders for Piel Frama, Nov. delivery.

    Would love to get either of those two. Just can't afford them. :-(

    Anyone with experience on top flip vs bottom? The bottom flip on the Vaja blocks the lightening port? Is the Vaja flap detachable?

    Im thinking a flip might be my best bet to protect the 6+screen when throwing in a bag. I'm terrible at applying screen protectors. I don't want to carry cards in it.

    I've used and like both actually. Either has the capacity to block the lightening port, depending on where it's hinged, and if there's a tab closure.

    I wouldn't make much difference between the Vaja or Piel Frama leather; both are of the highest quality. The only advantage with Vaja, is the ability to customize.

    My two centavos; I'd avoid Cases.com like the plague. Order direct from Piel Frama; less drama, much better customer service, 1st run merchandise.
