With hundreds of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus cases on the market, it can be difficult to find the perfect solution for your needs, managing the fine line between enough protection and too much bulk. Popular casemaker RooCASE has some promising options that may suit those of you looking for full body protection, which we've outlined in the video below.

We went hands-on with the RooCASE Skinny Slimm, the Glacier Tough, the Gelledge, and the VersaTough. Prices below are Amazon prices, which are somewhat cheaper than the price points listed by RooCASE.


Of the four cases, the Skinny Slimm is RooCASE's answer to a minimalistic case, leaving the thin design of the two devices largely intact while offering protection. The Skinny Slimm protects the rear camera of the iPhone, but doesn't have a lip around the front to protect the screen when facedown on a surface like a table.

The Skinny Slimm is available on Amazon for the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus at prices that start at $7.98. There are a range of different color options available.

The three other RooCASE options offer full protection for the iPhone, with varying amounts of bulk. The Glacier Tough case offers complete iPhone protection with a built-in screen protector and it has a clear back so you can still see your iPhone. It's not too thick, but it leaves ports open except for the Lightning port, so it's not resistant to dust and water. The Glacier Tough case is available for the iPhone 6 Plus and the iPhone 6 in a range of colors from Amazon.com. It's priced at $18.98.

RooCASE's VersaTough is another full case that offers a bit more protection than the Glacier Tough. It doesn't have a clear backing and it feels a bit bigger, but it has a solid design with a TPU backing and a built-in screen protector. It also leaves ports open, with the exception of the Lightning port, but volume and power buttons are covered. The VersaTough case is available for the iPhone 6 Plus and the iPhone 6 from Amazon for $17.98

We also took a look at the Gelledge case for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, another full-protection offering, but we were unimpressed with how difficult it was to get on to an iPhone, the unresponsiveness of the screen due to the built-in screen protector, and the difficulty of pressing the volume and power buttons. For that reason, we recommend choosing one of RooCASE's other options over the Gelledge.

But you kept the products, right?

Whether or not we keep the products depends on the company. We often receive review samples, and in some cases, we return these samples. In other cases, with products that are of limited value, the company does not ask for them back.

Receiving a review sample has no bearing on the review that we give, and when we evaluate products, we always take elements like cost into account. We absolutely do not give positive reviews in exchange for products.

We're here to entertain YOU and share products with YOU. We write posts for our readers, we do not write them to benefit random companies. Random companies are not here every day reading our posts and participating in our community, so I could care less what they think of a review that we've written.

Reviews are a big part of the online community. We all like checking out a product before we shell out money to buy it, and anything you see on our site is something that we thought people might like to have a look at before potentially buying. We have no ulterior motive beyond creating content that someone, somewhere might find beneficial or entertaining in some way.

Paid advert? Looks like I need a new Apple-centric site.
No. We don't do paid posts here. It's just a review of some iPhone 6 cases from a company that's fairly popular that we thought people might be interested in.

If you don't like an article just scroll on by. No need to get worked up about what your not interested in. Im pretty sure someone doing research on the case would be glad to see this.

Video reviews seem odd and out of place on this website for some reason...

Thank you for the video review. Looks like Amazon customers seem to like it pretty well as well. I've been looking for an otter box alternative since their reviews have not been so good. I love my Spigen case (not sure what model it is) but it is somewhat slippery and has taken a few hard hits, cracked above the camera opening and a dent on the metal back.
