Hello all, I am sure you are all fans of the smart phone & more than a fair few of you run iPhones 6.

 

So what phone cases are you running.
 

I currently have an Otterbox Symmetry which is nice, very protective however not as stylish as my previous Element Case Sector 5 Black Ops

I was looking at the Incipio NGP as that gets quite good reviews on YouTube as the Ottorbox is massive!

 

I haven't heard of Distill...

Sadly it isn't out yet, but  Evolutivelabs' Crash Guard and Rhinoshield combo looks very sleek and promising. I have the Rhinoshield  screen protector on my OPO and it's fantastic!

On their website they drop it from like 25ft onto concrete

That's a fair bit of kit.

I currently have a Cygnett Tempered glass screen protector which is doing the job

I'm waiting to receive the new 6, but currently I use Spigen Tough Armor for my 5s and ordered the Spigen Slim armor for my new phone. I've been very happy with it. If I had one gripe, it's the cut-out on the back to show the Apple logo. Also, tempered glass is a must have. You can find quality ones on Amazon in the $10-15 range.

I don't get what is with the cut out for the logo.

 

This is the first tempered glass protector & I love it

The Apple leather case is pretty nice, I must admit. For the future I'm looking into either a Tech21 or a Magpul.

I like the magpul also (in black) , but it's sold out everywhere.

Hi Lee, I have the iphone 5s and love it ...being A James Bond fan I had the Sony Xperia but unfortunately I didn't take to it.
So I haves decked out the iPhone 5s in the life proof case in black it looks after my iPhone a treat ...it is waterproof to five feet protects the phone from drops and falls and is tough...I through my last job as a first response officer and also martial art teacher know the benefit of protecting your personal phone! Especially when you are rolling around on the floor ( as we most know most fights end up on the floor especially when ceasing or restraining).....and As these phones are so expensive it is best to protect them ...we all can't afford to replace them every day...and updating the content to how you want it takes forever lol!

The only problem I have with the lifeproof case is it needs a extra plug in cable for the head phones so I always make sure to carry it. I have this paired with a single security ear piece (strange I know...) but this allows me to listen to music make calls but I still have one ear free to listen and be environmentally aware!

Kind regards

James

A few previous posters mentioned Incipio cases - I personally like these cases a lot. I'm currently using an Incipio Atlas case for my iPhone 5. As with the Lifeproof case James mentioned, there's a headphone extension needed to keep the case waterproof, but I chose it more for it being dustproof.

 

In general I prefer the aesthetics of Incipio over Lifeproof.

Hey guys, I haven't been on for a while & missed the updates.
 

I recently purchased the Incipio NGP which is a great every day case, slim & looks great in black.

Though I have been tempted by the Tech21 as it is a bit brighter

While I wait for Magpuls to come out locally I went with the Incipio DualPro myself. Wasn't comfortable having a soft case for a Plus, given my luck with my gear lately. :wacko:

James, use a Bluetooth earpiece, no plugs or wires to deal with. I have a Lifeproof case too.

Mikey, although the NGP is marketed as quite a soft case it is still quite firm. Its quite a soft touch and flexible off the phone but is standing up day to day

I use the Lifeproof and find it very good. Keeps my phone looking like new and free from dents and scratches. Also keeps it free from water damage. My phone spent about 20 minutes at the bottom of a hot tub and came out dry as a bone. What more need I say?

I was using the lifeproof, but i started to find that the plastic started to bulge out above the "hang up" button which left a lot of people with very long voicemail's which normally ended with variations of "hang up you stupid thing" though normally a lot less fit for pleasant company.

 

Im now using the Magpul and while im impressed with the feel of the case i do think the headphone port could be a little bigger as im unable to fit more auxiliary leads.
