5 Budget-Friendly Cases For Your New iPhone 6
Susan Smith

Want to know a little secret about the best way to save money on your new iPhone? Protect it from day one! A bigger screen means more glass, and you’ll need to be prepared for the everyday bumps and bruises. Don’t be that very first guy who got his iPhone in Perth, Australia and immediately dropped it on the sidewalk. Or the people that are finding out that their new phone can actually bend in their pocket! Check out these cases that will help you protect your new phone and save you from costly repairs.

Otterbox        15206456986_f637d38ca6_z

Otterbox is probably one of the best known names in phone cases for a reason; they do their job. There are a couple different types of cases for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus. The Defender series offers the most protection with a triple-layered case. The Symmetry series offers double layered protection, and the Commuter series offers a single layer of protection to avoid the bulky feel. You’ll have to decide what is the right level of protection for your phone. If you have kids handling your phone, you’ll probably want as much protection as possible. The other great feature about Otterbox cases is that they provide coverage for ports on the exterior of the phone, the fingerprint scanner, and they also come with some sort of screen protection (built in, or an adhesive depending on which case you decide on). They come in a bunch of different colors and can be customized on their website. Otterbox cases come with a one-year warranty from the date of purchase.

Speck Candyshell Grip

The Candyshell Grip case is sure to help you keep a good grasp on your new phone. The outside of the case is designed for those with butter fingers. The ridges offer extra gripping power, making it harder to drop your phone. The case is not bulky at all, but still provides protection. There are options for both the 6 and the 6 plus. It comes in six different colors, and if you want to see it in action, just check out the YouTube video on their product page. For $34.95 on the product site, this is a good investment towards your phones future.

Exact Frame Series          15042790360_8c283695d0_z

If you spent the last of your hard-earned cash on your fancy new phone, then this is the case for you. Coming in at under $8.00 on, the Exact Frame series is a bumper case that provides protection for your phone while not breaking the bank. These cases simply go around the outside of your phone, forming a protective edge should it get dropped. It will not block the back of the phone, nor will it cover the screen. But it will give the edges protection in case of a drop. It comes in 10 different colors, though black is currently the cheapest option. It does not block any port access, nor does it get in the way of any incoming signals. This is a very simple case, but it could do the trick for your new phone.

​Spigen Wallet Case

Looking to ditch your wallet for a phone case? This handy little combo will do just the trick. With Apple Pay included on your new phone, you won’t need to carry around so many cards anymore.  This wallet case has 3 slots for other cards and your ID, making it the only thing you will have to bring with you when you leave the house. The leather exterior provides protection for the phone, and it comes in several color combinations. The magnetic strap closure keeps your case closed when not in use. It also includes a kickstand for your viewing pleasure. This case comes in at just under $30, but keep in mind you are getting a new wallet too.

Versus Card Slot Case    15129134508_eb13ed0f31_z

If you like the idea of keeping your phone in a wallet, but you hate having your screen covered up, check out the Versus Card Slot case. It offers a trap-door-like option on the back that slides open. It can hold up to two ID or credit cards, plus a couple of bills. This is a great grab and go option for a night on the town, or just for fast trips. It comes in five colors and has a hard-shell construction to keep your phone safe. Just know that it will add a small amount of extra bulk onto your phone for the extra cargo space, but if you don’t have to carry a wallet too, it could be worth it.

These cases will give you peace of mind when using your new phone. Even though the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are said to be a lot more durable, spending the extra money right away when you get your phone can save you the heartache of replacing a brand new screen. After all, do you really want to take a chance?
