    I'm not active, so the Apple leather case is working well for me. I also have a Spigen on the way, supposedly. Not sure what the timeframe is for Otterbox and LifeProof cases for the plus. Those manufacturers generally make good quality products, so I'd look to them when they release something.

    Cases probably aren't as widely available since, even though there have been leaks, etc., the phones were just announced less than 2 weeks ago. Takes a while to ramp up production, unless you take a gamble on the "leaks" and hope they're 100% accurate.

    A Defender style case would definitely be bulky. I was impressed with the LifeProof for my 5 and 4S, so I will most likely look to that style case whenever they make it.

    I had the Incipio too and returned it after finding the Apple Silicone case. I really like the Silicone and the Leather, they don't add much bulk. I'm thinking of getting a tempered glass protector next.

    I signed up to be emailed when the 6+ case comes out for Lifeproof. I have had no complaints about their case on my 5 and figure that case will be the lowest possible profile with high level protection.

    I'm personally not into Otterbox.

    I hope those cases arrive soon because right now I just have a cheapo case. I mean, even Speck doesn't have a 6+ case available yet according to their website.

    Be careful with the otterbox cases. I'm sure that I'm probably one in few but I had an otterbox defender on my 5s and it put a whole bunch of nicks in the side, like on the corner of the side in the front on both sides running from the top of the phone to the bottom.

    Have never had that happen with any of the 6 Otterboxes I have owned. I do think you need to be careful with any case you but y though.

    I went with the apple leather case. I'm not sure how protective it'll be though. I usually get the speck candyshell grip for my phones.

    Spigen makes some of the best case around. They add decent protection while still maintaining a elegant appearance. These 2 cases I will be getting for 6 Plus.
    I have already purchased one of these cases for my wife's 6 Minus and she loves it. It offers decent protection at minimum bulk.




    This is the one I got for my wife. It fits her 6 Minus perfectly. Feels good in the hand with decent-good protection. She loves it.

    I think I may return the apple leather case and instead get the silicone or the speck candyshell grip. The candyshell would give good grip on the 6 plus. I would think those two, especially the candyshell, would also provide better drop protection.

    I like the leather one (only having used it for a day), but I'm looking forward to someday receiving my Spigen (and then the replacement buttons that are apparently shipping soon after). Kind of disappointed I didn't receive it in time as promised, but oh well.

    I've got the leather case nd it feels great. Now I just need a 6+ to put in it. Damn you Sprint.

    I bought the black leather case from Apple when I got my Plus. I'll use it until the LifeProof Nd comes out. I love the LifeProof cases, had 'em on my 4 & 5, & can't wait for this one to come out. Hopefully it's not too bulky as the Plus is already big enough.

    Is the learher case going to provide drop protection though? Wouldn't silicon maybe be better?

    I doubt it will, I just happened to like the feel of the leather case more. Hopefully I'll go drop free until the LifeProof case is available.
