Buyer's Guide: List of Cases for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus

With the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus in the hands of millions of customers as of today, many users will be looking to purchase cases for their new devices. Despite the fact that the phones were just released, there are already quite a few options on the market as many case makers began preparing cases for the devices months ago.

We've rounded up some of the available iPhone 6 and 6 Plus cases below, with options ranging from ultra thin and light to those that offer complete protection.

Spigen - Spigen has a range of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus cases available, each offering varying degrees of protection. The Tough Armor case, for example, advertises "extreme" protection with a foldable kickstand, while the Air Skin is advertised as the thinnest case ever made at 0.4mm thick. Spigen's cases range in price from $14.99 to $34.99, with most shipping out in 7 to 10 business days. Spigen's range of cases can also be found on Amazon at somewhat lower prices.

Otterbox - Otterbox has a selection of cases for both the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, including the ultra protective Defender series, which is a three-layer rugged case designed to offer full protection for the iPhone's display. The Defender series is bulky, so Otterbox also offers the thinner Symmetry line and the Commuter series. Priced from $39.90 to $69.90, Otterbox plans to make its cases available soon.

Whoever was designing the case with the slot for credit cards didn't read the memo about :apple:Pay .... no more physical cards required to carry around







(well sort of, guess will be some time until it takes off)

Heavily is the right word when it comes time to describe Otterbox cases :D

Check out ZooGue. Right now they are $4 plus shipping.
They're really quite nice, surprisingly. I wasn't expecting them to be any good but I've been using the Social Pro for 3 years now.

The colors are a bit hideous but the gray and black are great.

Also The Incipio NGP FTW. Not bulky and very very good protection. Saved my bacon a couple of time. $20 isn't that bad.

But their cases are way too overblown. The defender will actually damage the phone if any particles/debris gets between the phone and the case.

I'm really happy with Apple's black leather case.

Is that Apple's "leather" case really real leather?
