    This is my first time using Apple's cases for protection but, I don't think I'll use anything else! I used to always keep my device in a case for obvious reasons. Then I became annoyed by the bulkiness, and wanted something slimmer. Came across many cases claiming their were slim, but still seemed to bulky for my taste. Then I came across these super thin cases(really like skins)that I liked, until a few weeks ago I dropped my phone; nice scuff on the bottom corner. So I bit the bullet I went to the Apple store to try the silicone case...LOVE IT! not sure why because I bet I could find something comparable and cheaper but I doubt if I try something else. I got the product red one but, I also want the black leather when I want to dress it up. What protection you guys use, if any?

    I often use Apple accessories, BUT I don't mind buying 3rd party because you can save money and if you know the vendors they are often just as good. Example Griffin, or Otterbox. I know the case you mean and it's a good one. I have the brown leather myself and I DO love it, but lately I'm using a special kickstarter edition case that lets you wirelessly charge the iphone! It's offers decent protection also with a sturdy while not bulky carbon fiber back and slight protruding ridge around the screen.

    I don't prefer Apple accessories but since the leather cases came out for the 5s, I absolutely must have at least one. It's funny because out of everyone I know with Apple products, I'm the only one who purchases Apple accessories. Lol

    I find the JEtech case to fit better and feel good in the hand

    Another vote for Apple leather cases. They are a great balance between thinness/style and protection. They're slim but not too slim.

    I use a bunch of third party lightning cables but always use an Apple charger, unless I'm plugged into my car.

    I'm now using Amazon Basics cables.
    6 ft long
    A bit stiffer but worth it for the addional length.
    About $8
    Good Luck

    I have a few Amazon Basics cables and also some braided Anker cables that are really nice. The Amazon cables are awesome for the price.

    There was a a time when I only used and preferred Apple accessories, but as time has passed, I've found 3rd party accessories that I really like better. For example the Twelve South Charging Stand is much better than the Apple Charging dock IMHO. I've decided to be more open concerning accessories so I don't miss out on good products.

    The additional length of Anazon Basics Cable is great when traveling.
    The outlet in hotel rooms often too far fom the nightstand next to the bed.
    Good Luck

    I never used the Apple cases (though I did buy a few of those stupid bumpers) until the iPhone 6 and now I don't think I'll use anything but these!

    I tried an Apple leather case on my 5S. But I've used other cases that were just as good.

    Twelve South is my overall favorite accessory maker. They make some really sharp stuff that looks like it might as well have been made by Apple itself.

    I go with whatever suits me best at the moment. My current clear case is one from China which I bought for 50$

    Only charger cables are originals for me.

    I used to use spigen, casemate and other third party accessories. But ever since I tried the  silicone and leather cases, I haven't looked back. They're just what I like and need.

    As the power in iPhone is easily run out, I prefer using an external battery pack (power bank) to keep my phone alive.
    And also the original Apple cable is long and not convenient to carry with you, I also bought an substitude to use along with my power bank.

    I prefer  accessories but I'm not at a point where if  doesn't make it then I won't buy it. Quality over everything!
