For fans of plus-sized phones, the brand new iPhone 6s Plus is a smartphone worth drooling over. But that bigger form factor can sometimes make the phone hard to hold. The bigger they are, the harder they fall…and you really don’t want to drop a phone that you just spent hundreds of dollars on. Protecting your new iPhone 6s Plus with a hard case is your first line of defense against drops, dings, scrapes, and other impacts. Here are five of the best iPhone 6s Plus cases you can buy right now.
PSA: Some iPhone 6 Plus cases will also fit the iPhone 6s Plus, or vice versa. The iPhone 6s Plus is slightly larger than the 6 Plus, but not by very much. Whether a certain case will work for both phones will depend on the manufacturer. For example, all of Speck’s new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus cases also fit existing iPhone 6 and 6 Plus devices. Read all product info carefully to make sure you’re purchasing the best case for your needs. If you need even more suggestions for the best cases, check out our guides to the best iPhone cases.
1. Caseology Savoy Series Apple iPhone 6S Plus Case
These Savoy Series cases are really elegant, and they often have a splash of metallic color that coordinates or contrasts with the bodies of the iPhone line. If you like slim, simple cases, this is a nice option that won’t add a lot of bulk to an already-large phone. The cut-outs for your charging cable and headphone jack are fairly large, which is a nice perk. The exterior of the case has been treated to be anti-slip, so you are less likely to drop it.
Price: $16.99 (58 percent off MSRP)
2. POETIC Revolution Premium Rugged Protective Case for Apple iPhone 6S Plus
The blunt corners on this case can help absorb the energy from accidental drops. Button covers help to prevent any moisture from reaching your iPhone’s body. There are also flaps to cover all open ports to prevent dust and lint from getting in there. A nice touch for the accident-prone is the side texture, which makes the case a bit easier to grip with sweaty or wet hands.
Price: $19.95 (20 percent off MSRP)
3. Obliq SkyLine Pro iPhone 6S Plus Case
The iPhone 6s Plus is a big phone, and there are times when you don’t want to hold such a bulky device. For extended video chats and YouTube binge sessions, you’re going to want a case with a kickstand. This is a nice option that uses a card to prop up the phone. With eight color options to choose from, this is a case that should appeal to a wide range of tastes.
Price: $11.99 (66 percent off MSRP)
4. i-Blason Armorbox iPhone 6s Plus Case
Looking for a rugged case? This is a solid option to consider. It’s not up to military drop test standards, but it is a case that is built fairly tough. The big perk here is the thick, built-in screen protector. This screen guard protects your device, and also saves you the expense of buying a separate film screen protector.
Price: $14.89 (17 percent off MSRP)
5. Spigen Extreme Protection Tough Armor Case for Apple iPhone 6 Plus (2014) / iPhone 6S Plus (2015)
This “extreme protection” case from Spigen meets military drop test standards (MIL-STD 810G 516.6). Raised button covers make it easy to press your controls, even when the case is new. The dual-layer construction of shock-absorbing TPU and durable hard polycarbonate gives this case serious staying power, while a kickstand makes hands-free viewing even easier.
Price: $19.99 (43 percent off MSRP)
