I like the protection this iPhone 6 Plus case delivers but can’t help but find it to be a bit too much in the “added weight and bulk” department. Then again, I don’t have a rambunctious, smartphone-destroying son the way Carly does. For someone like Carly this case may actually not be ENOUGH protection. For her the Defender Series may be a better option.


I also find it to take a good bit of effort to get the case on or off the phone. (For people who feel similarly the Symmetry Series case may be the better option.) You can check out all the color combinations here. You can [Affiliate Link] buy yours here through out Amazon Affiliate Store.

What I Like: Available in numerous color combinations; Offers good protection; Includes screen protector; Covers many of the ports and buttons

What Needs Improvement:Takes effort to insert and remove the phone; Adds weight and bulk to the phone
