Give your Nexus 6 some love, and wrap it up in one of these 10 cool cases

The super-sized Nexus 6 smartphone is a beauty, and comes with the latest Android Lollipop software installed, but the slippery device can be a little tricky to hold. Bad things could happen if it connects sharply with the sidewalk, when any accumulated fluff from your pocket over the body will be the least of your problems. Why take the risk? We’ve gathered some of the best Nexus 6 cases currently on the market, so you can wrap your smartphone up in a protective layer, and help avoid any unfortunate mishaps.

Case-Mate Stand Folio Case ($40)

Available direct from the Play Store, this folio case doubles up as a secure landscape stand. The Nexus 6 sits in a minimal plastic shell that covers the corners, and the fake leather cover opens like a book to reveal a soft, microfiber lining with a couple of handy pockets for credit cards or ID. Fold it back and you can prop the Nexus 6 up at an angle. The ports are fully accessible, there’s a large cut-out for the camera, and openings on the front of the case for the dual speakers.

Boasting military drop test standards 810G 516.6, you’ll be hard pressed to find a tougher case for the Nexus 6 on the market right now. UAG’s unusual, industrial style is angular and practical, but still surprisingly attractive. The shell is tough on the outside, yet soft on the inside, ready to take the sting out of any impacts. The case makes the phone easier to grip, and it even has skid pads on the back to prevent the Nexus 6 sliding about when you put it down. Large tactile buttons and precise openings make operating your Nexus 6 easy.

You can rely on Cruzerlite to release a basic, budget-friendly TPU case for virtually every new Android smartphone that hits the market. This is a fairly robust case, but it’s flexible enough to make fitting easy. There are openings for the ports, camera, and one which shows that big Motorola “M” logo. The circuit design and Android mascot make it visually interesting, and you can also choose from 11 different colors, all slightly translucent.

Spigen Slim Armor Case ($18)

Planning to watch some movies on that 6-inch display? Of course you are, so you’ll find the kickstand on Spigen’s Slim Armor case very handy for propping the phone in landscape view. The case uses both polycarbonate and malleable TPU in its construction  to protect your Nexus 6 from harm. There’s a raised lip on the front to safeguard the touchscreen and cut-outs for the camera, ports, and logo. Unfortunately the button covers make the volume and power keys a little difficult to find. The polycarbonate kickstand is also pretty loose and gets detached easily.

Diztronic TPU Case ($10)

If you want basic protection and your budget is ten bucks, then Diztronic’s matte black case is a nice alternative to Cruzerlite’s offerings. It’s just about as plain as they come with an unobtrusive logo on the side providing the only visual interest. It’s a TPU case so it’s easy to put on and it will do a good job at absorbing most impacts. The cut-outs are all present and correct, you can feel the button covers, and there’s a raised lip to keep the touchscreen safe from scratches.
