A good case for your phone can go a long way toward keeping it safe from damage. Frustration is bound to ensue after one good fall for your phone without a case. And it can be a big expense in more ways than one. These days they come in an almost endless variety of designs, levels of protection, and colors. Whether you’re going for the fashionable, the functional, or something in between there is truly a case for every taste.

When looking for a case there are generally 4 areas to consider:

Size: you want it slim enough to fit in your pocket but strong enough to do it’s job. There are, of coure, exceptions for the particularly rigorous user where the extra protection afforded by a truly burly case may be worth the extra size.

Weight: this may not be as much of a consideration as size as most cases are extremely light anyway. But there can be quite a bit of varience in weight; even if it comes down to a matter of a few ounces. And, if a few onces matters to you as it would for someone who does a lot of training and what not while carrying their phone then there are some super light options available.

Level of protection: this area is crucial and is largely why people look into getting a case in the first place. There are few things more frustrating than damaging your screen or phone housing  after one good fall.

Style: this may not be as important of an area as it is for others but there are a good number of designs geared toward the more fashion minded. You can view some of the more popular selections of such cases here.

The SUPCASE Unicorn Beetle PRO Series

To be fair, SUPCASE specializes in a variety of protective cases for just about every mobile device imaginable, including your iPhone. They are indeed a great company.  But our personal favorite is the SUPCASE Unicorn Beetle PRO series pictured above. Despite it’s top grade strength, ruggedness and protection it barely seems to affect the profile of your phone. Where other protective cases may be heavy, bulky and awkward the SUPCASE Unicorn Beetle PRO is lean and mean.

This case is available in 5 different color combinations: black/black, light blue/black, green/gray, pink/gray and white gray.

It offers full protection on all sides and includes a screen protector which is something a good number of cases lack.

Despite its burly appearance i tactually has a rather slim profile. When held in the hand, the case will feel almost flimsy. However, once installed it form fits to your phone extremely well and adds a very sturdy, if flexible, layer of protection.

There is even a story of a customer who lost everything in a house fire save for their phone which was found still functional in its Otterbox Defender Series case (although the case was severely damaged the phone was untouched). That should suffice to calm any concerns you may have about this case’s performance.

Protective iPhone 6 Case By Cable And Case

Protective iPhone 6 Case By Cable And Case best phone cases

Consistently reviewed very highly on the online community and generally available for a surprisingly reasonable pricepoint, this case is a winner in several categories. It is also extremely light.

We give it 5 stars for style as is simply just looks cool and compliments the iPhone 6/6S very well. The company makes cases for other phone models which you can view on their Amazon store by clicking here. At present the only iPhone model this one is compatible with is the 6 and 6S.

Protective iPhone 6 Case By Cable And Case best phone casesFeatures include hard, soft and hard/soft case options available in a variety of different color combinations. All the usual button protectors with an added port for a headphone jack *something a lot of new phones no longer have but we hear may be making a resurgence because, like, how dumb is not having a headphone jack?

The case also includes a kickstand so you can set it on your desk or table at home for hands free viewing. A cool feature and great for people on the fly or during lunch somewhere. It could even come in handy for the odd Skype meeting on the go. Also, there is a cutout in the back through which the Apple logo can show through. All in all a great case for the price and one that definitely stands out against the more subdued colors and designs on the market.

It also features a tiny little kickstand on the back of the case to allow you to rest your phone on a table top while you watch videos or chat with friends. Pretty cool.
