iPhone 6 cases

Hardware and Accessories


I have used otter box defender series cases on all of my iPhones for the past 4 years. I just purchased the iPhone 6 and an otter box defender series case for it, but I don't really like this case. I cannot use my amazon basics charging cable with the case on, as the opening for the charger is to small. The screen protector does not sit flat on the screen, so I have to press on it with quite a bit of pressure in order to type or navigate. I like the defender because it covers all of my ports, has a built-in screen protector, and has a belt clip holster. Can you recommend any similar cases for the iPhone 6?
Thank you.

Hi there! I haven't even seen the new model iphones yet, but I love the defender case on my 5S. Maybe you've already done this, but especially regarding the part about the screen protecter not being flush to the screen, have you tried contacting otterbox? They might have a suggestion, or, if the case is defective, maybe they'd send you a replacement. Also, this may be a stupid question, but are you sure you put the case on correctly? I mean, is the shell fastened closed as tightly as it can be?

I really appreciate this post, though; still haven't decided if I want to upgrade to an IPhone 6, but if there are issues with the defender case, that might be just one more reason to just keep what I have for this year.

Hi! Yes, I have contacted otter box, and they are going to try to send me a replacement. I don't think the replacement will help though, as people reviewing the cases on amazon are having the same issues. If you have a 5S, I would just keep it for now.
