Trentium 6L Case ($16)
Here’s a two-piece case that comprises a malleable TPU skin with a hard polycarbonate panel for the back in gold, black, or silver. It’s designed to give rugged protection, but not everyone will like the fact that the frame encroaches on the front, even if it does protect the screen. There’s a cut-out for the Apple logo, but we have concerns about the small cut-outs for the camera and flash because when they’re too tight, they can cause glare problems on photos that use the flash.
PureGear DualTek Case ($14+)
If you’re always dropping your iPhone 6 Plus then you really need a rugged case. This one meets military standards for drop testing and it includes reinforced corners that’ll bear the brunt of any impact. It’s a chunky case, but there are accurate cut-outs for your ports and camera. The buttons have covers, and you’ll find additional grip on the sides. You can get in white and grey, or black and grey. It’s also reasonably priced for a rugged case.
This case is fairly bulky and isn’t a sleek and trendy as some of the others on the list. But what it lacks in aesthetics it makes up for by offering incredible safety as well as a kickstand, so you can kick back and relax while watching sports or a YouTube video. You can choose from three colors: red, blue, or all black. The case even comes with an attachment so you can put your phone on your belt, if you think that’s cool. The i-Blason case looks like a Transformer and kind of acts like one. First you put on the soft part, which absorbs the shock of a fall. Then you put the hard shell over the top, which protects against scratches and hard drops. The last step is to put the front part on, and you can consider your phone safe.
Q Card Case ($30+)
Sometimes it’s nice to have everything you need in one place, which is why combination wallets and cases have gained popularity. Almost every company has their own version of it, but Q Card is one of the best, courtesy of its slim design. A lot of wallet combos are wide and difficult to slide into a pocket. It’s most interesting feature is a slot that allows you to slide a credit card to act as a kick stand. While it can fit three credit cards a little bit of cash, it doesn’t provide drop protection. It will protect against scratches, and it looks elegant. Just be careful–with this case if you lose your phone, you’ve lost everything.
Incipio NGP ($9+)
We already have a case from this company on the list, but it’s hard to make a best of case without including the NGP. It is one of the best cases for the new iPhone and the best part is that its the cheapest option on this list. That doesn’t mean this translucent case isn’t a secure option for your new phone. In fact, it is one of the safest cases out there. The jelly like consistency provides excellent grip, which reduces the potential of dropping your phone. However, if you do drop the phone, and you will, it is shock and drop proof.
