Smartphone protection options have notoriously been cumbersome, especially those promising to protect your phone from rough treatment. Big, blocky, dull in color, hard to get on, and often adding a half inch or more to your already large phone; there aren’t many features of traditional cases that make them attractive.
Smartphones are designed to be sleek and stylish, and the iPhone 6 is no exception. There is nothing more frustrating than having to cover up a beautiful design with a blocky neon green or bright pink cover. For the best protection for your iPhone 6 while still keeping true to its design, consider the following options:
Incipio Edge Chrome
Incipio is well known for providing high quality, low cost cases and the Edge Chrome is no exception. The Edge Chrome is a traditional case and bumper hybrid, and offers the best features of both. It fits the iPhone 6 snugly, offers adequate protection, and has a small back piece which easily slides on and off to make docking easy.
Finding a screen cover that doesn’t make you want to throw your phone across the room is another feat in the quest to protect your iPhone. iPhones screens have a reputation for cracking making screen protection a must. However, many of us forgo protection because the thought of messing with a flimsy screen protector that can’t be applied easily, bubbles up and scuffs easy, and doesn’t offer that great of protection is too much.
ScreenGuardz Pure is an iPhone 6 screen protector that actually offers the necessary screen protection while also having an easy application. Not only is the screen protector easy to work with, but it is also highly scratch resistant and protects the screen from shatters.
Case-Mate Wallet Folio
This case isn’t as sleek as some of the other iPhone case options, but it does come with a wallet feature. The case provides the protection your phone needs while also helping you reduce the amount of items you need to carry around by combining your phone and wallet. The Case-Mate is also designed well and is built from handcrafted leather to give you an artisan feel.
Rhinoshield Crash Guard
Another trend in phone covers is the development of the phone “bumper.” Bumpers are cases, usually designed from silicon, which provide a skin to your iPhone that doesn’t obscure the shape of your phone too much while also providing adequate protection. The Rhinoshield Crash Guard is only 2.5mm thick, is super light, and boasts protection from falls up to 20 feet high.
Most regularly use their phone to play music while they work out. However, finding phone protection that allows you easy access to your screen isn’t necessarily easy. Most armbands are uncomfortable or require you to completely pull your phone out to switch songs. The Incipio armband is built to be comfortable while also making it easy to access your touch screen while wearing the band.
Don’t compromise style for protection. An iPhone case doesn’t have to be cumbersome, and a screen protector doesn’t have to obscure your screen. Recent technology has made it easy to achieve both style and protection in a way that best suits your personality and needs.
