If you want to indulge yourself and get a case with real character, then you should check out Grovemade. This folio case combines a solid walnut wood frame with a high-quality leather cover. The natural materials give every case a unique look that will age for added character. There are wooden button covers that work really well and cut-outs for your smartphone’s ports, camera, and other functions. It is quite a bulky case, meaning you might need an adapter for some accessories. You can also fold the cover back and prop your iPhone 6S Plus in landscape view. It’s quite protective, too, but keep in mind that wood and leather are easily damaged.
This case offers a nice balance of protection and style. It’s a relatively slim shell adorned with a mesh pattern, translucent back, and a colored bumper that ensures solid drop protection from up to 6.6 feet. It also comes with generous openings for your phone’s features and functions, and there are slim button covers. It’s made from flexible TPU, so it’s easy to put on your phone, and you can get the bumper in one of five colors.
Goze Original Case ($30)
At first glance, this looks like your typical shell case, one that offers drop protection from up to 4 feet. However, it does have a couple of extra features that are worthy of note. Some cases can muffle the iPhone’s speaker, but the clever design of the Goze actually amplifies the audio output, so alerts and notifications sound louder with the case on. This is achieved by routing the sound via the small bump at the bottom through the opening on the side of the case. If you’re a germaphobe, then you’ll also be happy to know that this case is also anti-microbial.
Here’s a handsome iPhone 6S Plus case that adds grip and protection to your phone. The inner layer is made of malleable TPU, and comes with a textured wave on the back. On top of that, there’s a polycarbonate bumper in a contrasting color. The button covers are tactile and the cut-outs are fairly roomy, so the case shouldn’t interfere with everyday use of your phone. There are four different color combos to choose from, too.
