    Dappered Approved Phone Case?

    I just upgraded to an iPhone 6. Any recommendations on a phone case that isn't too clunky & still a little bit stylish? Simple is better, don't really like the "checkbook" style ones. Thanks.

    I don't know how pavement-proof an iPhone is, but I drop my phone, I dunno, about once a year and it never results in significant damage. So, I'm counting on my lucky star and go case-less. Actually, most regular smart phones are just too large and heavy, last time I replaced my phone, I went with a Mini Droid, smaller than my previous phone.

        Function over form. No need for a "stylish" phone case. I'm a huge otterbox fan. The thickest one they make defender. It's flown out of my car and landed square on the pavement without a problem. Something that works is more important than style. I would recommend a sturdy case in a plain color. Black, grey, or navy.

          I ran into the same problem as you. I wanted a stylish case that could hold my subway card and work-building access card; checkbook wallet cases were out of the question.

          I eventually found this gem and bought it. The leather is of nice quality, and it feels great in my hands. It looks amazing.

            I bought the apple one. It provides a better grip than the naked phone.

              I got a natural leather case on Steven Alan. Very clean, and if it's going to be something I carry with me every second of every day, I might as well be developing a patina on it!

              Love the hex one though.

                I've seen too many phones dropped and easily shattered. I use a lifeproof case. I can and literally do swim with my phone in my pocket. As much as I love the look of a handsome wooden or leather case, the peace of mind is worth a small sacrifice in style.

                  When I was using my Iphone 5S, I used the Sena Lugano Wallet Case, which had a sueded interior, and excellent leather. Their version for the 6 can be seen here:

                  However, I feel like all snap-on cases scratch the sides a little bit whenever you put them on or take them off, and they don't let the design of the phone show through. Therefore, when I go the 6, I got the Spigen Air Cushion, which gives some decent protection while showing off the Iphones beautiful backside. A cool thing about it too is that when the LED's go off in a dark room, the entire case gets illuminated because of how clear it is!

                    Personally, I take my phone out of my pocket way too often to want a wallet case. I go with form over function here as well. Big fan of the commuter otter box but also had good luck with the Cygnett WorkMate. The edging keeps some distance from your screen and whatever surface you put/drop it on. So when it goes skidding across the pavement face down the screen isnt touching it.

                      I'm a big fan of the Speck cases (got mine on Amazon for <$30). My phone has survived plenty of drops. It's definitely not as sturdy as the top of the line OtterBox case, but it is a decent mix of style (sleek, simple) and protection for the money.

                        I have a ringke slim case on my 5. Prevents the screen from touching when placed face down, very slim, has much better grip than no case. It's cheap and functional.

                          I had a plastic shell case that protected the back of my iPhone with a plastic type protector on the front. Worked great for about a year and a half until the plastic case wore out and the clear front bit started to peel away from the phone. Now I'm going with nothing. My problem is I can't really find anything I like for the 4s. That's the trouble with holding on to an aging phone. No support.

                            I don't know if Dappered really does the approve or disapprove thing. Anyway, I agree with the functional over style in this case (pun not intended).

                              I couldn't have a phone without it being a lifeproof case now. Oh and I mean the lifeproof fre' case, the nuud one I cannot stand and it's actually thicker. The regular lifeproof fre' case though, I've had several just to change up colors really, but they are thin, slide in and out of your pocket much easier than an otterbox, it's waterproof, I've dropped them out of cars and off of fourwheelers to have to go back and find them and they were fine. With how much an iphone is to replace it without an upgrade available, it makes no sense to me to have anything else. With a variety of colors, they can be pretty stylish too.
