13. Verus Card Slot Wallet Case

iphone 6 wallet cases

(Verus)

Available in five different colors, this wallet case for the iPhone 6 is nice because it keeps your cards tucked away in a little compartment that’s practically invisible. With a simple, ergonomic motion, you can quickly access your cards in this compartment. For anyone who is on the go and doesn’t have the room or inclination to carry a separate wallet, this is a smart buy.

I’ve had a couple of different iPhone 6 cases since I first got my phone. This iPhone 6 wallet case is actually the one I use every day at this point. This case is easy to install and remove. The side power and volume buttons are covered by the case, protecting them from the elements. While this does make it a little harder to press these buttons, it does give you peace of mind.

The sliding compartment for your cards is a little tricky to open, and opens best when you use a thumbnail to crack the slider a bit. I actually like that the card compartment is a bit hard to open when you first get the case, since I’m anticipating the sliding mechanism will loosen up over time. It adds some weight, but overall this is the lightest and thinnest wallet case I’ve found for an iPhone.

One thing: this iPhone 6 case doesn’t ship with a screen protector, so make sure to grab one if you want to protect your screen. The case itself has aged well, with only one noticeable scratch in the two months I’ve owned it.

Price: $29.99 (25 percent off MSRP)

Buy it here.


Pros:

  • Rubberized edges make the case easy to grip
  • Hides cards from view
  • Easy to open
  • Fits phones from all carriers
  • Also ideal for storing cash, business cards, notes, etc.

Cons:

  • Somewhat limited color palette
  • Fits fewer cards than other cases
  • Case feels heavy
  • Some users have complained case doesn’t feel “premium” enough
  • Third party headphone jacks may not fit with case in place

14. Supcase iPhone 6 Case & Running Armband Combo

(Supcase)

This case idea is so clever, and will definitely appeal to runners and gym rats. The case itself can be attached to a separate armband, allowing you to go from the office to a spin class without having to take your phone out of its case. While the color options and size options are limited, this case will be ideal for the average iPhone 6 user who loves listening to music while they do some cardio.

Price: $19.99 (33 percent off MSRP)

Buy it here.


Pros:

  • Like two cases for the price of one
  • Soft stretchy velcro armband fits arms from 9″-21″
  • Doesn’t limit access to ports or jacks
