    Would you be able to post pics of the Defender/Symmetry on your 6 if you do?

    With the 6 Plus cases coming out soon, it would be really great to see the difference in bulk between the cases on the 6.

    Thanks.

    Defender and IMO it's junk.

    Device shifts inside case.....

    Head Phone Jack port cover only covers half the opening. not sure why they did that one...

    Screen protector that is built in, I didn't like it so I removed it..


    It's quit big, but that's to be expected....

    There are some other rugged cases out there with better quality IMO

    I decided to wait on the Symmetry case that I like to come in, but my coworker got a 6 with a Defender on it and it looked horrible.

    Hers also moved around in the case and the touch screen didn't work well either. I told her she should return it, but she's scared of breaking the phone. It's her first smartphone! Lol

    The Commuter has a 2 piece design like the Defender but it's slimmer, and doesn't have the built in protector. Symmetry doesn't cover the bottom ports either.

    I returned my commuter for the defender. The ports were to lose and that's just asking for lint to come inside the case. My defender seems alright.

    I like the Commuters. I had 2 for my 4s and 2 for my 5s. Since this phone is bigger, I wanted to try a smaller Otterbox.

    I usually bounce between the commuter and the defender. I'm not big on the plastic of the commuter though. Doesn't normally last long. My only problem now is that I have a 6+ and no Otterbox period.

    I have the Defender which makes my $900 phone look like something Fischer-Price made. I had to change SIM cards yesterday and released how bad these cases make these beautiful phones look.

    That's why I don't use Otterboxes. Too bulky and ugly.

    What case are you using ? I'm thinking about switching to something slimmer but protective.

    Oh I just use the Official iPhone 6 silicone case in black, nothing over-protective for me.

    Oh I have the leather version but the only gripe I have is the opening at the bottom.

    I honestly don't mind it, I like how all the ports are wide open and how I can feel the glass meet seamlessly with the body

    I have the Otterbox Symmetry for my 6 and it is perfect for everyday carrying when paired with a tempered glass screen protector. But I also have the lunatik taktik 360 preordered for when the going gets rough!

    You want the Candyshell: CandyShell iPhone 6 Case | New iPhone 6 Cases | Speck Products

    I'll agree about the CandyShell. I have the CandyShell Grip and I'm very happy with it. I originally bought the Defender just before launch and had to send it back. My phone didn't move inside the case like some report but the screen protector killed the touch screen sensitivity.

    One more for the CandyShell! Just picked up a Black/Red over the weekend and it's awesome. I also have the grip version and an Otterbox Symmetry. This is hands down my favorite. It looks great and offers some nice protection too. Definitely worth looking into!

    I've got a defender case it's teal green and blue. And my iPhone 6 fits snug in the case. And I've used defender cases on all of the phones that I have had and haven't had any trouble with any of them. IMO the defender cases are one of the best cases out in the market.

    Tally another CandyShell vote! Doesn't add much bulk and offers better-than-average protection!

    I wish I'd watched these prior to buying another Otterbox Defender. I'm returning it today and getting a Speck case or something. Typing is TERRIBLE on my i6 with the Defender installed...
