1. Moshi iGlaze XT Samsung Galaxy S6 Case
While Moshi is predominantly known for the iOS and Apple accessories, they do occasionally make cool cases and other accessories for the Samsung Galaxy family of products. The iGlaze XT case is a transparent case option that will appeal to people who are looking for a very thin case. Moshi sent over a sample of this case so we could spend some quality time with it.
This case is semi-flexible. You couldn’t bend it in half, but you can definitely get a bit of motion out of it. That makes it easy to remove and install. The case is less than a millimeter thick, with a flash-friendly camera cutout to prevent “ghosting” phenomena. The case is somewhat resistant to fingerprints. In addition, it ships with a back film and a microfiber dot cloth for cleaning.
2. Verus Crystal Light Samsung Galaxy S6 Case
Verus provided us with a sample of this case for review purposes. If you’re looking for a clear, flexible case, this is a solid choice. Most smartphone owners have had the unpleasant experience of trying to get a too-tight, overly rigid case off their device. It can feel like you’re about to snap your phone in half. This flexible case is much easier to remove than a rigid case.
The button covers are nice and soft, so you won’t feel like you have to press down overly hard. One minor drawback is how easily this case takes on fingerprints. Fingerprints show up easily, and they don’t remove cleanly when the case is wiped against a shirt sleeve or jeans. However, if you’re looking for a clear, flexible, and inexpensive case, this is a solid choice.
Price: $9.99 (67 percent off MSRP)
3. Zizo Samsung Galaxy S6 Slim Hybrid Cover with UV Coating
Alright, that’s enough of the clear cases. If you prefer your cases to have bright pops of color, this is a nice option to consider. This case has a UV coating to prevent against fading. It’s also available in red, grey, or black. This style of case is simple and inexpensive, making it a nice option for people shopping on a budget.
Price: $5.29-$6.29, depending on color selected
4. Speck Products CandyShell Inked Case for Samsung Galaxy S6
Speck’s CandyShell Inked line offers the same great protection as their other CandyShell cases, but with interesting designs and patterns.

More than just a pretty face, these cases are designed to meet military drop test standards, so they’ll give you great peace of mind for the life of your device.
5. Nupro Lightweight Protective Snap-On Galaxy S6 Case
Looking for a thin case? This soft-touch case from Nupro is designed to snap on and off with ease, which is nice for people who tend to swap out their cases frequently. Plus, unusual color options like rose and mint make this case even more distinctive. For its combination of thin profile and attractive design, this simple case is definitely a winner.
Price: $9.99 (50 percent off MSRP)
6. Caseology Wavelength Series Textured Pattern Grip Cover Samsung Galaxy S6 Case
The subtle ribbing on this case makes it easier to grip than cases without any texture whatsoever. That small design element makes this case especially appealing to people who frequently drop their phones (you know who you are, accident-prone people). The case is made from a material that is resistant to oil, dirt, and scratches.

The outer shell has a soft-touch coating, making it comfortable to hold for extended periods of time (such as while playing a mobile game).
Price: $17.15 and up, depending on color selected
8. Encased New Glyde Series Samsung Galaxy S6 Case
This two-tone case is available in lots of different color combinations, including pink with gold, teal with gold, and blue with gray.

If you plan to trade-in or re-sell your S6 at some point, it’s important to keep your device looking pristine. And if you plan to keep your S6 for years, you’ll be happy to learn that the case is backed by a lifetime warranty.

9. CellBee Galaxy S6 / Galaxy S6 Edge PU Leather Pouch Carrying Case
Made from faux leather, this handy carrying case is ideal for people who prefer to use their phone without a case most of the time. On this rare occasions where you need to keep your phone protected, you can use this carrying case to transport your device. If you prefer having a case on your phone full time, you can still use this carrying case, as it’s roomy enough to hold an S6 with a thick Otterbox case on it.
Price: $10.99 (63 percent off MSRP)
10. Case-Mate Karat Clear Bumper for Samsung Galaxy S6
Looking for an S6 case that’s totally luxurious? It doesn’t get much fancier than this case, which is made with genuine gold leaf. Button cover accents reinforce the metallic look of this case. It may be on the slim side, but it still has protective bumpers and will withstand basic impacts.
