    So I am looking for a case (really I broke an otterbox defender, dropped my iphone 4s on my aunts tile and it broke the back bar on the case. Phone looked brand new still)
    I have had otterbox defender since my 3gs and loved it.

    Not sure what to think with this (sad thing is they dont offer much for the 6+ vs The 6)
    http://www.elementcase.com/ion-for-iphone6_a/354.htm they look cool. And I don't mind buying screen protector

    Would love otter box defender but they are missing my colors plus the camo
    Right now my gs4 has orange back, black top, and black rubber.

    I had life proof but one broke had a chip in the side so I returned it and got another one so the charge port door clip broke (hard to explain without pic)

    Thanks.

    thanks i decided to put off the phone for now. (tempted but since nearest att store is 40miles away nearest apple store 2hrs away) thats not possible at the moment. then who know's what next week will bring

    if i listed my wants. it will be close to 3k lol..

    but i find it hard to believe that rhino shield can withstand some insane drops. but if that's true then i wont have to have a thick case such as otterbox, thats the reason i loved lifeproof slightly thinner, plus when a phone looks this good it should be uncased/clear.

    element makes a good case i was going to get one but never did... but i wonder if it protects as good as it looks.

    When you get a 6 or plus, get the rhinoshield , I personally dropped it from heights of 3- about 8 ft onto everything but cement and after about 30 drop the Touch ID stopped working. Of course there was no visible damage so they replaced it free.

    Okay so your 3k wants must be more than your iPhone wants, correct?

    Ya the iphone is included in that cost but off topic (new laptop thats 1k (2- kind1) hopefully Mac releases a 2-1, and truck stuff audio mainly).

    But i bought the phone and happy with it
