1. Verus 2Link Samsung Galaxy S6 & S6 Edge Cases
If you prefer your cases on the slim side, this slender case is a nice option. It’s both lightweight and fairly rugged, thanks to an inner case pattern that is designed to absorb and disperse shock. It also has a soft-touch coating.
Verus provided a sample of this case so we could go hands-on. It feels nice in the hand, and has ample cutouts for accessing your controls. This case has a two-piece design: you can remove the bottom portion of the case, and leave the main part of the case in place. The two-piece design is also nice for people who have had bad experiences trying to wrench a too-tight, one-piece case off a smartphone. This case is available in six colors: gold, emerald green, pink, blue, black, and mint.
Price: $16.99 (58 percent off MSRP)

This metallic case is available in gold, silver, bronze, violet, and navy.
4. Tridea Power Guard Crocodile Black Samsung Galaxy S6 Case

5. Case-Mate Tough Air Case for Samsung Galaxy S6

Even the button covers are tough, with metal button accents giving this case some added coolness.
