    How do you like the leather apple case? I was thinking of getting a black one for my space grey iPhone when it comes in the mail.
    I think the Apple leather case is absolutely beautiful and sleek and does the best job of showcasing this gorgeous phone.

    However, the bottom of the phone isn't covered and the case is thin so I'm not quite sure how shock absorbent it is supposed to be or how well it will protect against drops (although I've read some posts that mention a few drops without damage to the phone) and if the phone happens to hit on the bottom, then the phone is bound to get nicks and scratches and who knows what could happen to the screen. I normally never worry about dropping my phones because mine are usually attached to lanyards but since there is no bottom on this case, there are also no cutouts to attach the lanyard loop.

    Lastly, many find that the leather case is so sleek that it can be quite slippery at times which could be a problem with the new bigger phones since we are all still getting used to holding on to them. Some people opt for the Apple silicone case because it offers the same sleek look but with a grippier feel.

    It just really depends on your job and daily activities and if you plan to use it as your main case. Then you can decide if the case is for you. I suggest looking at one in person if you haven't already and seeing if the case feels right in your hand.

    I know I won't be using my leather case very much except probably for dressier occasions where my phone would be safely tucked away in my purse anyway. It will also be backup for my husband in case anything happens to his leather case.

    im having bad luck with cases so far, My New Trent case if you seen my post couple pages back broke already, the screen protectors came out (the clear case ). My otterbox defender the rubber plugs are tearing off im having horrible luck
    Call Otterbox and get that thing replaced. Usually no questions and they replace it free.

    I don't believe so. There are other cases like The Lepow Pie iPhone 6 battery case.

    Some people have said that over a period of time the Apple case becomes more grippy. let me know if you find that to be true.if you do, I think I'm going to pick up the midnight blue one this time instead of the red one. Although I think the red looks awesome with the white iPhone.

    They usually take awhile to get one out. I'd assume it'll be out before Christmas though

    Yes, I think that's definitely true. My husband had his leather case on for a while (before we found the Tech21 Tactical case) and his phone seemed a bit easier to hold after time. I think the Apple leather case would well work for you and you will like the midnight blue one a lot.

    It's not the color I wanted, but I found the phone was slipping. I tried a few cases and returned them. Sticking with this one for now as it's very grippppppy. Plus I dropped my phone once already on hardwood and zero damage. Speck Case.

    I am loving the Apple Silicon case for my 6 and 6 Plus. Just enough protection, grippy and still lets me dock the phone in all my docks.

    Just got my Hex Focus case shipped today & I love it. Helps keep the slim profile of the iPhone but also adds protection to the back and also has a soft inside to prevent scratching of the phone. Definitely high quality!Case for the "6"-imageuploadedbytapatalk1413329590.066212.jpgCase for the "6"-imageuploadedbytapatalk1413329603.377830.jpg

    Yep.. My 6 is my daily driver and the 6 Plus is my reader, forum browser and anything else that I might want more screen space.

    If we are going somewhere that I wont be moving around a lot I take my 6 plus, but for the most part its the 6.

    My smoke Tactical case was schedule to come today and it got delayed. Since it requires a signature I have it being held for pick up tomorrow. Unfortunately I have a full day and won't be getting it until late tomorrow night. At least I can enjoy my day off of work on Friday with a new case!

    so otterbox is sending me new slipcover they call it for my defender, I will no longer support new trent company. I have bought some things from them and im a pilot tester of them. I have two iphone cases one broke (screen protector part) the other one sticks to my phones screen like it actually sticks to it its hard remove it. I also have two ipad cases of theres. When leaving negative feedback on amazon for there product writing my experience, they actually had nerve to ask me to remove my feedback and they will forward my comments to there development team. What kind of company asks you to remove feedback because its not positive when they tell you point of testing program is to write your HONEST opinion . :-/ I'll either throw these beta testing crud away or just give em to someone.

    Are there any cases that do not collect dust around the edges and in the hole for the camera? I have found that sometimes all that dust and grit can scratch the phone more than having no case.

    That's an issue with most cases I have had but usually at the headphone port, speakers, etc. Need to take it off and clean now and then so get a case that is easy to remove

    Lifeproof of course, whenever it becomes available. Also, the griffin survivor used to be good for keeping dust out but the new design is terrible in my opinion. Also, it's more than a little bulky.
