    Was using a case-mate skin (Zero case) but after a couple months, it broke.

    I'm now using a caseology case and it's kinda lose and annoying.

    I'm done spending a ton of money on cases and I'm stuck between something from Poetic and iBlason.

    I don't want anything crazy bulky, but i also want it to have a raised lip.

    Can someone recommend their favorites from each brand? Thanks!! :):):)

    I recently bought a Magpul Field Case for $10 on Amazon. It is a little thicker than my Apple Silicone case, but it feels like it offer some better protection as well. It is not as bulky as an Otterbox.

    I really like it so far, I may get a few other colors.

    Where I am from, the only choice I have is between otterbox, dual pro incpio and speck mightshell.

    I went with the mightyshell because of the raised lip.

    Rhino shield crash guard. It's only a bumper, $25, unless you want the screen protector they offer then it's $50. I feel there are better screen protectors out there, however. To me the ultimate perfect protection is the rhino shield and your choice of front and rear protection wether it's a tempered glass and/or a wet install skin like bestskinsever (case optimized for the rear FYI).

    I have a 6 Plus, rather than a 6, but some of my 6 Plus favorites that are on the protective side are:

    Thule Atmos X3, Ballistic Jewel, Rhinoshield Crash Guard, Tech21 Classic Shell/Wallet/Shell with Cover, Griffin Survivor Core, UAG Valkyrie

    Good luck!

    I've settled on Zoogue and Magpul.

    My favorite is the Zoogue because of the grip and slimness of the case while not being paper thin. The 6 plus just feels so big that I tend to value slimness (while providing some protection) a bit more.

    I'm using the Spigen Slim Armor case for my iPhone. I have always been a fan of Spigen because I think that their cases are precisely a fit for iPhone and as well as the cuts for physical buttons.

    I do have an extra case however and you might also want to take a look at the Draco 6 Bumper case. I just like the curve accent. :)

    I'm using an Incipio NGP. While it doesn't offer a bulk of protection, it is slim and extremely good looking, and its tactile feedback totally matches the iPhone. I don't regret buying it much.

    Other options you have are the Incipio DualPro (a NGP on steroids, therefore more protective), the Spigen Tough Armor, and the UAG. If you're looking for more basic cases, similarly to the NGP, you can take a look at the SwitchEasy Numbers. Or, if you want a really different-looking case, see the SwitchEasy Helix!

    I second the Atmos x3 and will add the Speck Candyshell Grip. I also have the 6 plus, but these are 2 excellent cases. The Atmos x3 is my go to however.

    I also like the Otterbox symmetry. I seem to favor the one piece cases at this point. Earlier I used to only get the Otterbox Commuter
