    While at work today, my iPhone 6 fell from the Otterbox holster ( I was a dumbass and should have put it in my coat pocket) and hit the ground corner first. Not sure what it messed up internally but my screen flashes, has a couple of dark spots on the left side, the screen didn't even crack and since I have insurance, I am supposed to get a replacement some time tomorrow. My iPhone took plenty of tumbles while in a Defender with no damage at all. I now want to find a case that's a little tougher than a defender since I don't think a 3 1/2 foot fall should have killed my phone.

    Take look at the Tech 21 Patriot.

    They are pretty good cases. It all depends how the phone hits the ground I think. I dropped my phone in a apple leather case and never had an issues. And another time I dropped it in a life proof and shattered the screen.

    Just a thought.

    I think Griffen makes a tough case.

    Please do. I looked at the Griffen's and the Tech 21s. I'm leaning towards the Tech 21. Just pulled my Zagg tempered glass screen protector off and it looks like I was wrong. It has a crack in it and impact damage in the top left corner.

    Griffin does as stated above. I have one of these also. All the ports are covered and there is even mesh over the earpiece.

    They wipe the floor with Otterbox. IMHO.

    Pricey, but well worth it.

    Trident also makes some good cases. Like another person said though, it is all in where it hits.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I'm going to visit the local Best Buy because they have more than a couple of the cases you all have mentioned and I'll be able to look at them in person.

    I forgot to mention that thanks to the insurance I have carried on my iPhones since I bought the 5 when it came out, I received my new phone Saturday morning. It was overnighted with FedEx and since this was my first insurance claim, only cost $99.

    The Griffin Survivor almost triples the thickness of my iPhone but it provides the protection I need when I need it.

    I'm definitely not a fan of bulky cases so I would either go with the Spigen, Speck or Tech 21 case. I had the EVO Mesh in which I'm thinking about getting the Red/Smoky color now as I had the clear/white version.

    Let me know what you think. I was looking at one the other day but it was for the 6. They were out of the 6 Plus.

    I have the Patriot for a 6+. Seems very solid and screen works well - no rainbows or bubbling. The only thing that was a bit tricky is the mute switch. Once I figured it out, works fine. Touch id works for me.

    did the cover for it the plastic sheet thing over home button sit flush on it ? mine when had one from ebay would never lay flat on home button.
