Your shiny new iPhone 6 looks gorgeous naked, but carrying it around without a case is not exactly the best idea for many of us. When it comes to using my phones, I know I give them very good use. I have been known to drop and crack many a phone, so I know I need a good case if I want my iPhone 6 to last me.
As it goes with any Apple device, there is a sea of available cases out there. We know it’s hard to find the right one, so we have put together a list of our very favorite iPhone cases here. We have chosen a wide variety of cases, with different characteristics, sizes and features. Let’s check them out together!
Official iPhone 6 cases
Those who like to stick with official accessories will be happy to learn Apple did release some official iPhone 6 cases. Cupertino claims these are the “perfect fit” for your smartphone. Like most Apple products, these cases offer a very sleek and minimalistic design, but you can get a bit fancy if you want.
The basic cases are made of silicone and cost $35. These come in a variety of colors, so personalizing is not an issue. If you want something a bit nicer to the touch and eye you can also go for the leather cases, which also come in various colors and cost $45.
These are good cases, albeit a bit over-priced. It’s nice to rock the official accessories, though.
iPhone 6 Battery Extender Case
A case can be much more than a protective layer for your delicate smartphone. A good phone protector adapts to your lifestyle and offers you an improved experience, and there is no better feature than an extended battery. There is no Mophie case yet, but we do have other good alternatives like the iPhone 6 Battery Extender Case.
These cases can extend your battery life by very significant proportions. The iPhone 6 Battery Extender Case is offered in 2 variations: one with a 3500 mAh battery and the other with a 3800 mAh battery. To put that into perspective, the iPhone 6 has a 1810 mAh internal battery.
These cost $99.95 and $109.95, accordingly. Which is not a bad price for a case that will make your battery go for days while protecting your phone. Oh, and these cases also come with a kickstand for watching videos comfortable. The bad news here is that the case is a bit chunky.
OtterBox iPhone 6 Case (Symmetry Series)
When it comes to really protecting your smartphone, Otterbox has some of the most hard-core cases in the market. These can usually withstand any drop or hit, but they happen to be amazingly thick and ugly too. What’s the point of buying a gorgeous, slim iPhone 6 if you will make it almost an inch thick with a huge case?
Thankfully, Otterbox has created the Symmetry series. These iPhone 6 cases offer a great balance between strong protection and good design. They are strong and still offer the dual layer (rubber/plastic) form factor, but the case now looks thinner and sleeker. It’s still thick, but no longer is it a monstrosity.
Spigen Neo Hybrid Case for iPhone 6
Now let’s jump into a more affordable case. The Spigen Neo Hybrid Case for iPhone 6 is both good-looking and protective. I happen to really like its design, and the case is built with good materials that will not only make the device look good, but it will also feel solid in the hand.
This case also comes with a two-part construction. The bumper area is made out of UV-coated hard polycarbonate, while the rest of the case is made out of TPU and the buttons are “metalized”. I believe it’s a great case for $18.
Belkin Classic Folio for iPhone 6
Those nice leather folio cases can be awesome, but sometimes you want something less fancy and a bit more sleek. I happen to love the way the Belkin Classic Folio for iPhone 6 looks.
The outside is grippy and sleek, while the inside’s micro-fiber will be sure to keep your iPhone 6 as pristine as possible. The case also has a magnet that allows it to stay closed at all times, keeping your device nice and snug. Oh, and it does have a spot for a card inside.
Little Pocket Book for iPhone 6
Now, if you do want some fancy materials on your folio case, I say there is no better option than the Little Pocket Book for iPhone 6. It’s made by Pad & Quill and offers a classic look, with materials you won’t often find in other cases.
The case is made of handmade top-grain leather, making it a great accessory to pull out during any event. Pad & Quill also didn;t skimp out on the phone cradle. They made the inside piece out of real wood. This thing looks and feels amazing, guys.
Classy Autos 0.3mm Ultra Thin Semi Transparent Clear Soft Gel Case for iPhone 6
Sometimes what you want is a case you can’t really notice. After all, the iPhone 6 is a gorgeous device and it’s really meant to be shown off. If you want a minimal level of protection and good looks, there are cases for you.
This iPhone 6 cases is only 0.3 mm thick! You can also choose to get it in a completely clear hue, meaning you will barely be able to tell the device has anything. With that said, we need to point out this will not protect your phone very much.
It’s a soft gel material and it doesn’t create any screen protection. It’s pretty much just there to protect the back from scratches. It’s also under $5, making it a great deal. Oh yeah, and you even get a bundled digitizer mini pen.
Poetic Apple iPhone 6 Bumper Case
We simply had to pick a good bumper case, which also offer a good way to protect your smartphone without sacrificing much from looks. Poetic’s bumper case happens to be my favorite in this category.
I hate when bumper cases have a transparent back, so that is a plus for me. This bumper case will protect your phone against most drops and scratches, keeping the phone away from most flat surfaces. It looks very minimalistic and takes care of the job.
