    Hello, I am looking for a clear case that offers the best drop protection. How is the Spigen Ultra Hybrid Air Cushion Clear back panel TPU bumper compared with the Spigen Ultra Hybrid Tech? Which is better? I cannot find video of drop test of these two cases. Is there other product better than these? Thank you.

    Are you looking for colorful ones or not? How many items do you need?
    In any case I would not recommend you to drop your phone that often. One day you drop your phone and that might become unrestorable.

    I am looking for a transparent case to show off the rose pink case. I am not sure what you mean by how many items I need.

    I ordered a defender from Otterbox online store. Not sure if they are on holiday or not. Unable to reach them as I cannot find their contact email address and I am abroad. It will take a few days to arrive even they are open. Meanwhile, I am looking for a transparent case for temporarily and possibly occasional uses.

    I use an Ultra Hybrid on my 6s. It's great. The bumper is pretty thick and protective. It's a really well made material, stiff with just a little bit of give. I would be pretty confident that in a fall, the Ultra Hybrid would do a very good job protecting the 6s from damage. Of course the wrong fall could certainly crack a phone screen regardless of the case that's on it, so I'm also pretty careful.

    Don't hesitate on the Ultra Hybrid or Ultra Hybrid Tech though. Great cases for sure.

    Actually in terms of protection, what are the differences between Ultra Hybrid and Ultra Hybrid Tech? The latter seems to have a colorful strip along the edge.

    The speck candy shell clear is good. I personally don't like the hybrid by spigen because last year on my 6 plus I dropped my iPhone and it dented not just the back plastic but also the phone. The speck clear is much more durable and has better drop protection.

    In the past, there were cases that dirts entered those speck cases for MBP and caused scratches. How about the speck candy shell for iPhone?

    The MacBook cases are entirely different than the iPhone case. The speck clear in the week and a half that I have used it, has not let dirt in. But I do clean my phone every 2-4 weeks
