    That's the biggest reason I've been holding off for a smaller phone. A 6s would fit in most of my pockets, but none with a case. (And I watched a phone fall out of a co-workers back pocket onto cement then get run over by a wheelchair yesterday, I'm happy I was stubborn waiting for a small phone that would fit with a protective case)

    I've always been more about functionality than appearances.

    I ordered this case in preparation for the launch of the iPhone SE on the 5th of April here in Dubai:

    I see Apple right now isn't offering the silicone cases for the SE. Those are one of my favorites. I like the feel and the updated colors that are available for the 6/6s. It offers a reasonable amount of protection. I dropped my 6s on the pavement in the parking garage at work and it was fine. Hope they offer the silicone at some point!

    I agree, the silicone cases are nice... but I like the leather ones too. They kind of break down and wear really nice

    Default Best Cases for the iPhone SE!

    I prefer no case on my iPhone 5s.

    However, I'm a klutz so during the week I prefer a Vans silicone case and will take the case off on the weekends. I just ordered 3 more Vans cases off of Amazon to get prepared for the SE.

    Its just weird they differentiated the line and are offering less options.

    So far these have caught my eye:

    CASEFORMERS Ultra Slim Armor Case
    elago Outfit MATRIX Aluminum and Polycarbonate Dual Case
    Caseology Envoy Series Leather Cherry Oak

    Or do I even want a case? Kinda seems a shame to cover it up, but on the other hand I don't want it getting all beat up. Hmm...

    When I picked up my SE today I was looking for a Apple leather case but they only had black and blue.

    I decided not to get one since I really wanted brown leather. I ended up ordering an Apple brown leather off of Amazon instead. Fingers crossed....

    I wonder if there are any nice cases that allow for the color of the phone to show through but are also shock absorbent. No point in getting the rose gold if I can only see it from the front button. I do occasionally drop my phone, so it matters lol. Searching Amazon right now.

    Edit: http://www.amazon.com/Ringke-Crystal...mUvbUpU2722435

    I found one, and the best part is that there's a verified purchase review with pictures! I can see myself getting this one, since my drops are like from my pocket or from getting in or out of the car.

    I went with the rhino shield (otter box on the side for camping trips and such). I'd suggest taking a look, it's just a bumper with an 11 foot drop rating...but if you look at YouTube they typically survive a lot more.

    Oh and with that flimsy plastic screen protector they offer the biggest concern shifts from breaking the screen to bending the phone. (I layered mine with a matte one though so it doesn't get scratched as easily and doesn't have as much glare).

    There are videos of people just whacking at the screen with a hammer or dropping giant weighted balls on them trying to get the screen to break And eventually the phone will bend, but the screen does not break.

    I'm stuck between choosing the Otterbox Symmetry vs. the Spigen Slim Armor. I can't decide, both seem good, but I wonder if the otterbox may be a bit more grippy. My wife has the slim armor (or is it the tough armor I forget) for her 6 plus and its a bit slick

    The Symmetry is much less bulky. I can fit the 5s with the Symmetry case in my ArmPocket for running, but I cannot fit the Defender in it.

    Yes. Perfect fit since it's the same exact phone.

    I'm using my 5s glass screen protector as well on my SE.

    For $15 bucks, this Griffin Graphite Shell looks sharp.

    I am using the Tech 21 i had for my 5C, it fits but not of fan of their cases, bit slimy feeling and makes the phone wider. Have a Apple leather coming will try, also thinking of a new Vaja flip case i can get on eBay for $25, they are $110 US plus $31 delivery to Australia which converts to $183 here in Australia lol. Anyone have one $25 seems a bargain.

    UAG are good had one for my 6S plus, imagine they would be good on the SE.

    While waiting on my Vans and Apple leather case, I bought a Speck Mighty Shell case from Best Buy to try out and I'm actually liking it.

    I went with the tech21 tactical version and I love it. Great protection while remaining slim. Love being able to do everything one handed while holding my baby.

    I got the ringke case that I linked and I am happy to report that it works perfectly with tempered glass protectors. It didn't peel the protector off at all.
