Whether you’re worried about your iPhone 6 Plus bending, its glossy 5.5-inch screen getting scratched, or you just know you’re a total klutz, we have you covered.
We’ve found 10 cases designed for the iPhone 6 Plus that offer some durable protection to keep your beloved smartphone in pristine condition.
With military-grade drop test protection, the CandyShell Grip offers raised rubber grips, so you’ll be less likely to drop it in the first place. A raised bezel helps shield the screen, and rubberized covers protect the buttons.
Designed and tested to meet or beat the U.S. Department of Defense MIL-STD-810G standards, Griffin’s Survivor All-Terrain promises to have you covered for “drops, dust, sand, rain, impacts, vibration and a host of other environmental factors.” You’re looking at four layers of protection and an anti-scratch screen shield.
A tough case with sleek looks, Case-Mate’s offering is ideal for anyone looking for protection without bulk. With slimline dimensions and metal buttons, it looks classy and professional, but it will also shield your handset from knocks with its dual-layer design and shock-absorbing interior cushion.
4. iLuv Layup
The Layup has an outer layer made from shock-absorbing silicone and an inner layer crafted from impact-resistant polycarbonate. It also boasts a handy built-in stand that will prop up your iPhone for landscape viewing.
Trident’s Kraken A.M.S series gives not just two but three layers of protection. Meeting Military Standard MIL-STD-810F for drop, vibration, dust, sand and rain protection, it’s a pretty rock-solid option. There’s also a built-in stand, a lanyard loop and the option to buy Kraken A.M.S accessories, such as windshield and tripod mounts.
6. NuGuard KX
Available in black, red, light blue and dark blue, the KX case series uses science to look after your iPhone. In NewerTech’s own words, the cases employ “state-of-the-art X-Orbing gel technology, which evenly distributes kinetic energy to provide massive drop protection.”
The company is so confident it offers a rather impressive guarantee: “If your KX case ever breaks, we’ll replace it with a new KX case. Period.”
There’s even more dual-layer protection with Spigen’s Touch Armor, complete with air-cushioned corners for extra drop protection, a built-in kickstand with two viewing angles and a raised lip for extra screen protection.
Spigen also highlights the fact the port opening is wide enough for third-party chargers, and the headphone jack gap is big enough to fit alternative brands of headphones, such as Beats by Dre.
If you’re looking for a macho option, Rokform’s mountable case might be the one for you. It’s CNC-machined from aircraft grade aluminum and comes with the rather impressive boast of being bulletproof. It also gets impact protection from an inner TPU shell and will play nicely with Rokform’s v3 mountable accessories.
The Revolution is another option with an inner polycarbonate shell and outer TPU skin. It comes complete with a water-resistant screen protector, sealed buttons and port covers, while its angular ’80s looks give it a certain utilitarian chicness.
This affordable case comes in a range of shades for anyone wanting protection with a bit of added color. Extra side grips help with slip resistance, while the padding on the edges should shield your handset if you drop it. The case also has easy-press buttons and subtly raised points for what Obliq calls “lay-on-the-table” protection.
