Best iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus casesWith literally hundreds of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus cases to choose from, here's a look at some of the top cases currently out there.
[MUSIC] I'm David Carnoy from Cnet. And I know a lot of you out there are looking for cases to protect your iPhone 6, or iPhone 6 plus. I've done an online round up of the best iPhone cases out there. But it only has still pictures of the cases, so I thought I would give you some video. I'm not going to try and show you all the cases in the round up,. Which I do update regularly. But here's a sampling of all the different kinds of cases out there. Let's start with the bigger brands. Speck has it's usual assortment of cases. Including the flashy Candyshell Inked, which comes in a bunch of new designs. And the all new Mightyshell, which is a fairly slim case, but offers really good protection. Speck cases are pretty pricey, going for between $35 and $50, but they are among my favorites and should last awhile. Everyone knows OtterBox, and its Defender case has been one of the popular tough cases over the years, but it is pretty bulky, and more people are trying OtterBox's new Symmetry case. Which is tough, but thinner. On a side note, OtterBox also owns LifeProof. The company that makes the popular waterproof cases. Those aren't out quite yet for the iPhone 6, so I can't show you them. But they will be soon, and they are a top, tough case. I also like Check 21 cases, which come in a variety of styles. Including one that's a bumper case, that has no back. And a folio style case that covers the front speaking of folio cases I am a fan of them especially for a bigger phone like the iPhone 6 plus that has a gigantic screen that you want to protect I have here an adopted leather folio case its pretty nice. It's sold in Apple stores. And this is the Moshi SenseCover which allows you to see caller ID info through a window in the front and swipe to answer calls. It also converts into a kickstand for watching video. And some wallet style folios like this Moshi Overture have slots for storing credit cards and a bit of cash. The cases I've shown so far tend to cost more than $25, but there are plenty of good ones out there you can get for it less than that speaking as a whole assortment of budget cases that it sells on Amazon. There's slickly design and seem to hold up well. This is one of its neo hybrid cases also I like some of the simple clear cases out there. This one is from Ballistic. They tend to cost less than 20 dollars, and give your iPhone a more naked look, while offering some protection. Last but not least, there are Apples own cases. They come in silicone and leather versions. I have the leather one here, and they're quite slim. They also have a nice feel to them, they're kind of soft yet grippy at the same time. But they are rather expensive. Which is why people will end up looking for other alternatives. Anyway the list goes on and new cases hit the market every week. So check back at CNET for more iPhone case news. I'm David Carnoy, thanks for watching. [MUSIC]
